The State Fair Community College Roadrunners rode a hot shooting performance to victory over Southern University at Shreveport Jaguars 76-48 on Friday night, Jan. 8, at the West Plains Classic in West Plains, Missouri. State Fair shot a blistering 49 percent from the floor and 45 percent from behind the three-point arc.
“You look good when you make shots,” said Assistant Coach Kevin Thomas. “We made a lot of shots, and we had a lot of different guys contribute. I think Jay Lee went five of five from three. He shot the ball extremely well this weekend."
The Roadrunners (12-5) were also solid on the defensive end.
"We did some good things,” said Thomas. “I thought we did a good job of getting out on the perimeter shooters . . . We did a pretty good job of rebounding the basketball."
Freshman Jay Lee knocked down a team-leading 22 points for the game. Sophomores Justyn Watkins added 12 points, and Clifton Fleming contributed 10 points. Seven other Roadrunners got in the scoring column for the game.
The Roadrunners will take on the Oklahoma Wesleyan Junior Varsity on Saturday, Jan. 9, in the second round of the classic.
