and their first-place division record
to 6-0 with a 109-79 romp over
Umpqua CC anda 11 l-66pasting
of Southwestern Oregon CC.
“We had a real good
week. We just overwhelmed two
pretty decent teams,” said Head
Coach Royce Kiser. “The guys
really got after it and everyone
contributed to the effort.”
Against Umpqua, the
Cougars jumped out to an early
lead, helped out by some great
defense and by hitting the glass.
The Cougars took a 46-27 lead
into the locker room at halftime,

and also contributing four steals
in another outstanding Cougar
defensive effort. Travis Orrick hit
all five 3-point shots that he at­

Kyle Dixon added 15 points and
dished out eight assists to lead the
Cougars. Mark Olsen led the
losing team witK20 points and 13
rebounds.

“We played outstanding
defense last week, the best that we
have played all season, and that
has been the biggest key to our
success. Butwealsohitthe boards
real hard and we have to do that to
remain successful,” Kiser said.
When asked if this team
can get any better, the coach re­
plied, “We showed improvement

and our overall quickness, but we

“We scored right off of
the opening tap, and just kept it
