Trappers return 1-1 from Arizona road trip
The Northwest College Trappers split a pair of games in Yuma, Ariz., to begin the second semester men’s basketball schedule. The Trappers dropped a 70-54 decision to Arizona Western before bouncing back the following night with a 67-55 win over Yavapai.
In their first contest of 2011, the Trapper men got off to a fast start, but ultimately were hobbled by a tenacious Arizona Western defensive unit. The host Matadors, who began the year receiving votes in the NJCAA Top 25, limited Northwest to just 23 second-half points on the way to the victory.
