Malik Amos has already proven to be the Cougars most lethal weapon so far this season. He is currently ranked 16th in the NJCAA Division I in points per game. That rank will most certainly increase after his performance Monday evening in Victoria as he sizzled the nets for 44 points. Amos has led the Cougars in five contests this season, including 30 points the last time they faced the Victoria Pirates.
Sophomore guard Eric Williams dropped in 12 points, while grabbing six rebounds and two steals. Rashon Thomas tallied 11 points and a team high seven assists while during the contest. DJ Evans, Men's Assistant Basketball Coach said "Endurance in the second half allowed us to gain a victory tonight. We have to continue focusing and striving everyday.'' Evans continued with, "We're taking it game by game. We're trying to improve as a team every day. It was good to see the guys raise the intensity defensively the second half."
The Cougars will be back in action on Wednesday, November 29th when they open Region XIV Conference play at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens at 7:30 pm.
