EDMOND, Okla---The Arizona Western Matadors (1-1) displayed a balanced attack in securing their first win of the season, 84-80 over Navarro College Saturday at the Elite Eight Tournament in Oklahoma.
Jalen Townsell led the Matadors with 20 points for the second straight game thanks in part to his four three pointers. Four other Matadors joined him in double figures as Gio Nelson and Pharoh Allah each had 14 points, Cash Williams added 13 and Daniel Kiely scored 11.
The Mats rode a ten point lead into the half before fending off a second half surge from the Bulldogs.
Arizona Western wraps up the trip to Oklahoma on Sunday against Murray State College at 12:00pm MST/1:00pm CT in Tishimingo, Oklahoma.
