Day One At The Wells Fargo Classic
Derek Diesner
Nov. 29th, 2013

YUMA, AZ – Day one of this year’s Wells Fargo Classic saw all four teams win in convincing fashion. The day began with Cochise topping the Carl Albert State women by eight points, and then Phoenix routed CETYS followed by a pair of Arizona Western College victories.

With the victory, the Matador women improved to 7-2 overall, while the Matador men improved to 10-2 overall with their victory over St. Katherine’s JV squad. Both AWC teams will be in action on Saturday as the women host Carl Albert State and the men host CETYS Universidad.

In game one on Friday, the women of Cochise College knocked off Carl Albert State 72-64. At halftime the score was even at 36 apiece, but in the second half Cochise outscored their opponents by eight shooting 50% from the field while Carl Albert State shot just 33% from the floor. Destiny Amezquita led all Cochise scorers with 23 points of 7-of-11 shooting. Carl Albert State was led by Alyssa Banks who had 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting.

In game two it was on to the men’s side of the bracket with Phoenix College taking on CETYS Universidad. Game two was a blowout from the beginning as the Bears from Phoenix College routed CETYS 94-47. Derrick Brooks led Phoenix offensively with 21 points on 10-of-18 shooting, while Allan Arizmendiz led CETYS with 20 points on 9-of-12 shooting. CETYS only had six players dress for Friday’s game.

The Matador women kept it close for the first ten minutes against Anoka Ramsey in game three, before taking a ten point lead into halftime. AWC came out even stronger in the second half on their way to a 78-51 victory over the Anoka Ramsey Lady Golden Rams from Minnesota. The Matadors improved their overall record to 7-2 following Friday’s win. AWC was lead in the scoring department by Samantha Wallace who tallied 20 points and eight rebounds. Anoka Ramsey was led by Nicole Schaub who had 23 points on 7-of-20 shooting. All seven buckets Schaub scored came from behind the three-point arc.

In the finale of day one of the Wells Fargo Classic, the Matador men hosted St. Katherine’s College JV squad. The first half was all Matadors as they led St. Katherine 48-21 at halftime. The Matadors shot 54.5% from the field in the first half and the Firebirds shot 30%. The first half also saw the season debut of guard Marquen Mitchell who had been dealing with a nagging injury to begin the year. The Matadors continued their dominance of St. Katherine in the second half enroute to their 10th victory of the season with a 96-56 demolishing of St. Katherine’s JV squad. The Matadors were led by guard Ali Faruqbey who scored 21 points on 6-of-14 shooting.

Day two of the Wells Fargo Classic begins at 1:30pm Saturday afternoon and continues throughout the day. The Matador women will play at 5:30pm against Carl Albert State and the Matador men will play at 7:30pm against CETYS. Tickets are still available and cost just $5 for all four games.
