YUMA, AZ – The Arizona Western College Matadors routed the Chandler-Gilbert Coyotes on Monday afternoon at “The House” by a final of 87-47 in ACCAC action.
With the victory, the AWC Matadors improve to 3-2 overall and 1-0 in ACCAC play. With the loss, Chandler-Gilbert falls to 3-3 overall and 0-1 in ACCAC play.
It was the Matadors game from the get-go, as they controlled the tempo against Chandler-Gilbert all night long.
After one half of play the Matadors led the Coyotes 50-20. In the first half, the Matadors shot 38% from the floor and 43% from the free-throw line. Chandler-Gilbert was 0-for-7 from beyond the three point arc and just 23.5% from the field in the first half.
“I was proud of our guys tonight. We got everyone in and played well,” said Matadors head coach Charles Harral. “We let up a bit in the second half and got a little sloppy, but it’s still a great win.
In the second half, the Matadors outscored the Coyotes by ten points, 37-27.
AWC had six players record double figure points, with Ali Faruqbey leading the way with 16 points and nine rebounds.
The Matadors will hit the road for a few games starting Wednesday against ACCAC foe, the Scottsdale Fighting Artichokes. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30pm, following the completion of the women’s game and can be heard live on the radio on 560 KBLU-AM. Following Wednesday’s tilt, the Matadors will head north for a pair of games at North Idaho College for a Classic.
