The Roadrunners used the three-point shot to defeat the North Arkansas College Pioneers from Harrison, Ark., Nov. 15 at the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center. SFCC (2-4) shot a blistering 20-34 from beyond the three-point arc for the game and went on to win 106-75.
Sophomore guard Alfonzo Houston opened the shooting display with back-to-back three-point field goals to start the game. The Roadrunners stretched the advantage to 11-2 to begin the game.
“Alfonzo knocked some three-point shots early in the game and got us a lead, and then we stopped guarding,” said Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Thomas. “In the second half we did a much better job of defending, denying and pressuring the ball. Mike Bradley did a good job of leading by example. We were able to make some shots on the other end to extend the lead.”
