The “A&M Rivalry” game between Connors State and Northeastern A&M was played on January 10 at Melvin Self Field House. The winner of the game was awarded a trophy that will be presented between the two schools each time they play.
The Lady Norse women defeated Connors State in the battle for the first trophy taking a 67-58 victory. In the night cap the Connors men rolled over the Norsemen 81-67 to secure the win and the coveted trophy.
It was also the Cowboys 41st consecutive home court victory at Melvin Self Field House and Connors State head coach Bill Muse’s 450th win at CSC.
Muse, who took over the Cowboy program in 1992, has posted a 450-183 record for a .710 winning percentage.
“Those 450 wins belong to the current and former players who I’ve had an opportunity to coach during my tenure at Connors State, “said Muse. “I’ve been fortunate to have coached some very good players here. We hope to continue the tradition at Connors for many more years.”
