In the second half, the Coyotes didn’t let up. They continued to dominate on both sides of the court, and by the time there were just 2:00 left in the game, they were sitting on a 91-65 lead. Despite easing up and allowing the Rustlers to put up 15 in the final two minutes, the Coyotes cruised to another double-digit win. A strong effort led the Coyotes from Trent Gordon, who had 24 points and 13 rebounds.

On Tuesday night, the Coyote men’s basketball team continues their hot start with a convincing win over district rival Porterville College.
