KC men defeat SAU Tech, 74-63

KILGORE, TX -- The KIlgore College men rattled off 45 points in the second half Nov. 20 to defeat the Southern Arkansas University Tech Rockets, 74-63, at Masters Gymnasium.

KC (6-2) and SAU (5-2) were tied at 29 going into halftime, but KC dialed up the pressure by shooting 63.6 percent from the field in the second half.

Rodrigue Tha Andela also came off the bench, scoring 14 points and Michael Asante and Demiere Brown each scored 13 points for the Rangers.

SAU had two players in double figures with William Bynum scoring 14 points and Jaland Mitchell scoring 11 for the Rockets.

KC's next game is set for 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, at home versus CYM Prep.
