Charitable Cougars drop season opener

Charitable Cougars drop season opener

Looking no further than the box score tells the story of Friday night's disappointing home opener for the Barton Community College men's basketball team as the Cougars lost 74-71 to Otero Junior College on the opening night of the Best Western Pizza Hut Classic held at the Barton Gym.   Leading by twenty-one in second half action the Cougars shot 26% from the charity stripe in the final minutes twenty minutes as the Rattlers shot 50% from the field in the comeback to spoil Barton's opener.  The Cougars will next play Sunrise Prep Academy in the 7:30 p.m. game Saturday while Otero will take on Pratt Community College in the 3:00 p.m. game.   

In the first men's game of the Classic Sunrise used a strong second half to knock off Pratt 72-64.
