The Golden Eagles men (20-7, 8-5) won their fifth-straight conference game by outlasting Central Georgia Tech (19-7, 9-3) thanks to clutch free-throw shooting down the stretch. Jamion Simpson (6'0''-PG) was 4-of-4 from the line in the final 20 seconds, and Malik Jordan (6'0''-PG) also hit two free throws with the game still in doubt in the final seconds. Simpson played all 40 minutes in the game and tied for the game-high in points with 28, hitting four of five threes and going 6-of-6 from the line for the game to go with five rebounds. Nkem Ojeh (6'6''-PF) came off the bench to score 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting with 12 rebounds, and Jordan scored 15 points with six assists and five boards. Philip Garner (6'2''-SG) had 12 points, and Tony Pruitt (6'2''-SF) had 10 on 5-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds and three steals. Jalen Mitchell (6'6''-SF) chipped in nine points. The Golden Eagles fell behind early, with Central Georgia Tech taking the largest lead of the game at 27-11 in the first half, but then went on a strong 29-4 run to go up 40-31 with 3:00 mintutes left in the half. But, CGTC fought back to knot it at 40-all, before a tip at the buzzer by Jeremiah Shaw (6'2''-G/F) gave the Eagles a two point lead at the break. CTC also trailed 80-77 late in the game but went on a 7-0 run to take a four-point lead with 3:20 remaining. The men maintain their hold on fourth place in the conference standings with three regular-season GCAA games remaining before the conference tourney. The Golden Eagles play next this Wednesday at Georgia Highlands, which is No. 1 in the standings. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. Courtesy of: ctcgoldeneagles.com

He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby(6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back champion... [read more]
He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby (6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back championships. But his size was in question so he opted for the juco route. The journey has paid off with the commitment to the Sooners. He was contacted by OU assistant coach Chris Crutchfield last Sunday and the visit was confirmed Tuesday evening after speaking with head coach Lon Kruger. Lazenby visited Penn State earlier this week and was set to visit Utah on Monday but never ruled out committing to the Sooners if everything fell into place. OU is getting a real OKPreps feel to its team right now. The 2016 class saw Kristian Doolittle. The 2017 class has Scout 100 prospects Trae Young and Brady Manek. And now here comes a blast from the past with Lazenby. 'That would be a great opportunity if it happens,' said Lazenby to Sooners Illustrated on Tuesday. 'Trae Young - I mean you don't have to say much about him. Kristian Doolittle is a big, strong attacker. And everything I've heard about Brady is he's a sharpshooter with size.' Lazenby is hoping to be another piece to that puzzle. He was around 200 pounds coming out of high school and believes adding the 15 pounds in the last two years is a huge reason why his recruitment took off here recently. Lazenby will be a junior for the upcoming season but does have a redshirt season available to him as well. The addition of Lazenby means OU has one open scholarship remaining if Kruger and company decide to pursue another junior college or graduate transfer at this stage. Courtesy of: scout.com
