The SFCC Roadrunners (2-1) traveled to Allen County Community College in Iola, Kansas, to participate in the Allen County Classic on Friday, Nov. 13 and 14. In the first round the Roadrunners fell to Fort Scott Community College 72-66.
"It was a very close game. We took a six-point lead in the second half . . . the lead changed hands some in the second half. The last five minutes of the game we had trouble getting stops when we needed them and were unable to execute our offense on the other end," said Head Coach Dale Ribble.
SFCC’s sophomores were major contributors in the game. Clifton Fleming led the scoring with 20 points, and he also added five rebounds and a team-leading four steals. Justyn Watkins contributed 12 points, and George Williams grabbed a team-leading seven rebounds. Guards Dominic Williams and freshman Jay Lee led the team in assists with five apiece.
"I hope it will be a very good learning experience for our guys. We watched the tape after the game, and I think we learned some things that helped us on Saturday," said Ribble.
