  The Mavs bolted out to an early lead and cruised past #18 New Mexico in Day 2 of the NOC Enid Jets Classic.

  NOC led 43-33 at half and immediately went on an 8-0 run to start the second half building a 51-33 lead.

  The closest New Mexico would come was 74-67 in the second half.

  “Our game versus #18 New Mexico was a quality win,” said coach Donnie Jackson.  “They are a team that can really hurt you on the glass.  They crash ultra hard and that is how they score a lot of their points.  Our guys took the challenge we had for them in blocking them out and trying to control our one shot defense.”

  “We played with more focus and poise and we also stuck to our defensive game plan by clogging up the paint,” he added.  “We have another big game with our nonconference rival Cowley on Tuesday.  Our guys will have to be ready for them to give us their best shot.  They play at an unreal pace and want it to be a high-scoring, high-possession type game.  We will have to rebound and take care of the ball if we want any chance of winning. I’d love to see a great crowd on that evening.”

  NOC shot 57 percent from the field (37/63) and 50 percent from 3-point range (7/14).  New Mexico shot just 42 percent from the floor and 25 percent from 3-point range.

  Tyrel Morgan had 20 points and 11 rebounds while Deaveon Bankston and Demaree King had 18 each.  JD Ray had 13 points and seven assists.

  Chideyah Guyton scored 14 points off the Lady Mavs bench while Lauren Coates had 12 points.  Hannah Maples had 11 points and 10 rebounds.

  “There was progress made between the first and second games of the classic,” said coach Greg Krause.  “We shot better from the field and got to the free throw line more often. Lauren Coates gave us some high energy play with 12 point and seven rebounds. Carlee Murray did a good job playing point guard for the first time this year. We’re working hard to prepare for first conference game on Nov. 25.”

  The Lady Mavs shot 37 percent from the field and 26 percent from the 3-point line.
