The State Fair Roadrunners picked up an important regional road win Feb. 16 against Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzlies with a 61-51 victory.
State Fair erased a two-point deficit at halftime with a 14-1 run to open the second half to take control of the game.
"I thought we really played hard, and we played very well defensively," said Head Coach Dale Ribble.
State Fair (18-9, 3-3 in Region 16) was led in scoring by sophomore Justyn Watkins with a game-high 22 points.
"Watkins was able to get to the basket, and then he made some 15-foot jump shots, which Justyn has been doing most of the year for us," said Ribble.
Sophomore Clifton Fleming pulled down a team-leading nine rebounds. Sophomores Dominic Williams and George Williams tied for the team lead in assists with three each.
The Roadrunners will travel to Moberly Feb. 20 to take on the Greyhounds.
