The Cowboys hit the road over to city and conference rival Ragsdale tonight. The Cowboys are looking to keep the momentum rolling while the Tigers were hoping to be the first to knock the Cowboys off this season. The Tigers came out aggressive jumping out to a 6–0 lead in the first two minutes of the game. The Cowboys slowly chopped away at the margin. But at the three minute mark it was 11–4 thanks in large part to multiple missed layups by the visitors. Finally Southwest but several positions together and ended the frame with a 9-0 run to take a 13-11 lead.
The Cowboys maintained momentum as their lead quickly expanded to double digits thanks to a 9 – 2 run to open the second quarter. The tigers kept it interesting and didn’t allow the game to get away from them as the opening half closed at 35–21 in favor of Southwest.
In the second half Southwest put the defense of clamps down as the pressure increased and Ragsdale struggled from the floor as the Cowboys began to pull away with defense of stops and easy baskets. The third quarter ended with Southwest up 51-30.
The final frame was more of the same recipe as the Cowboys kept the defensive pressure going and the margin expanded to its final tally at 71-40.
Southwest moves on two 21–0 and 7–0 in conference play. Ragsdale drops to 11–9 and 1–5 in the conference.
