The Enid Outlaws are going PINK for Mother’s Day for this afternoon’s 4:00 game against Dallas Skyline at the Stride Bank Center.
This year’s version of the Outlaws find themselves in a familiar place heading into the home stretch of the season – first place in the Central Conference, with 7 games left. Enid’s 14-3 record puts them 1/2 a game ahead of the Shreveport Mavericks (13-3) and a game ahead of Dallas (12-3), making this afternoons game critical for the conference race.
This is the only scheduled game against Dallas this season. Dallas is led by Guard Alexander Cooper (#30), who averages 22.1 points per game and is a good 3-pt shooter at 38.9%. They have several other good scorers as four other players average at least 12.8 points per game. Forward Marcus Merchant (#11) is a shot blocker extraordinaire, leading the league in blocks at 2.6 per game. He is also a good rebounder at 9.7 RPG, so the Outlaws will have their work cut out for them.
Our own Enid Outlaws have their own weapons, however. Enid is on an 8 game win streak and have looked really good doing it, with only one game within 10 points. Forward Ricardo Artis II (#3) has really come on as of late and has taken over the team lead in points per game with 19.2 to add to 8.5 rebounds per game. His stellar play, along with that of team leader Point Guard Daylon “Chuck” Guy (#4), who averages 18.8 points, 8.0 assists, 5.6 rebounds and a league leading 3.1 steals er game, make a very tough combo for opposing teams.
One more interesting stat to consider – Dallas has outscored teams by an average of 8.2 points per game, while Enid has outscored its opponents by 17.4(!) which shows how dominant the Outlaws can be when they play their game.
Tickets start at $10, so bring your mom out, wear pink and check out the awesome Enid Outlaws this afternoon!
