Men Aim to Reach, Surpass .500 Plateau

November 14, 2014

While the Archer men have gotten off to a more gradual start to their 2014-15 campaign, this weekend similarly represents a key opportunity to build off of recent momentum. The Archers (2-3) are coming off a tightly contested, 88-86 overtime win at State Fair Community College.

The win was the first on the road for the Archers, who have played just one game at STLCC’s Forest Park campus.

In a noteworthy contrast to the STLCC women, the men have seen their offense supplied by a cavalcade of players instead of relying heavily on a singular dominant scoring source.

Personifying an increased emphasis on balanced scoring by head coach Randy Reed, the Archers boasted five different players who scored 14 or more points in the win over State Fair. Sophomore guard Jake Hensel paced the Archers with 17, becoming the fifth different player to lead the team in scoring in five games.

The Archers will look to build upon that momentum this weekend, when they face Highland Community College tonight and Kansas City Community College tomorrow at the Kansas City Classic.

The Archers will return home on Nov. 21 against Mid-South Community College. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.
