Archers Climb Back to .500 with Blowout Win over State Fair

January 10, 2015

If Randy Reed had any concerns about his team showing rust after nearly a month between games, the Archers’ head coach had them alleviated early during a 106-61 drubbing of State Fair Community College Saturday afternoon (Jan. 10).<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 

The blowout featured a barrage of 3-pointers, as the Archers connected on 13 of 33 attempts from the perimeter. Sophomore guard Sean Robinson led the charge by sinking his first three attempts from 3-point range, and finished with a game-high 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field.

 

“I was really shocked with the way we shot the ball,” Reed said. “I thought we played well on defense, and considering we didn’t take the team lightly, we didn’t keep it close. Today, I got a chance to see some guys who don’t normally play, and it was good to not have to use the starters too much.”

 

The rest for the team’s starters comes at a most convenient time. After going a whopping 28 days since their last game, the Archers have begun a stretch of three games in a four-day span.

 

The win over State Fair improved the Archers to 7-7 overall, the latest peak in what has at times been an unpredictable first half of the schedule for STLCC.

 

Forward Adis Mujakic is expected to give the Archers a boost for the second half of the season. Originally recruited out of Mehlville High School by former Archers coach Randy Albrecht, Mujakic has been unable to appear in a game for the Archers until this semester.

 

In his collegiate debut, Mujakic scored 13 points and grabbed eight rebounds in just 19 minutes on the floor.

 

“I am so proud of that kid,” Reed said of Mujakic. “He’s going to be a good basketball player. He’s gotten his life together, and that’s what junior college is about—to give guys second chances. He works hard in practice. He is a role model for our basketball team. I’m just glad and lucky to have him here.”
