Rustler men dominate Lamar

Nov 11, 2012 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

CWC hosts a two-day tournament Friday and Saturday at Rustler Gym.

Central Wyoming College men's basketball coach Shelby Lindley was satisfied with his team in a 91-60 victory over Lamar junior college Friday night at Rustler Gym.

The Rustlers were set to play Air Force Prep on Saturday at home, but CWC officials called off the game Thursday because of the winter storm that hit Montana and Wyoming.

Air Force Prep is located in Great Falls, Mont.

"I thought we played well," Lindley said. "We have to get better defensively. We had a lot of breakdowns on defense early that we didn't like and we have to improve on."

The Rustlers are 3-0 in the early stages of the 2012-13 season.

"All in all, our offense is starting to come around," Lindley said. "We had a lot of mismatches inside, which helped us. At the same time, we are learning our offense. We are starting to get the hang of it."

CWC will host the Bailey Tire Tipoff this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 16-17, at Rustler Gym.

The Rustlers play at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Salish Kootenai. CWC ends the tournament at 5 p.m. Saturday vs. the University of Montana-Western junior varsity team. UM-Western is in Dillon, Mont. "The big thing is our defense," Lindley said. "We have to communicate a lot better. We have to get a lot better than that. We still have a long way to go on our offense. We will have to put some new stuff in."

"We are going up-tempo a little bit, and we are putting in a new offense," Lindley said. "They are learning the new reads on that."

The up-tempo style worked in the first half for a 43-22 lead at the break. CWC had a 30-point cushion in the middle of the second half. "We were able to get a lot of kids playing time," Lindley said.

Armani Flannigan finished with a team-high 13 points. Roozario Wiggins scored 10 points for the two players in double figures.

"We were very balanced," Lindley said.
