Incarnate Word tops Jets 108-93

A season-high offensive output failed to make Newman coach Mark Potter a happy man Saturday.

His Jets dropped a 108-93 decision to Incarnate Word on Saturday in San Antonio in Heartland Conference play.

"Our defense just couldn't stop their penetration,'' he said.

"They would penetrate and leave us scrambling to stop the dribbler. That enabled them to have six or seven putbacks in the first half alone.''

Incarnate Word (3-0, 9-3) shot 63.2 percent from the field in the second half and wound up at 59.7 for the game. Newman (2-1, 8-4) shot 49.3 for the game.

"You should win when you score 93 points,'' Potter said.

The Jets will St. Mary's on Monday in San Antonio.
