Great work, Mountaineers!

Now on to our winter sports. Tonight is our first big home doubleheader at Edington Center. We hope all Mountaineer fans can come out and support our Women's and Men's Basketball teams tonight.   More on game times to follow.

A quick look back at last week's Mountaineer action...

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: won, 83-78, at UT-Dallas and lost, 69-73, at UT-Tyler. The Women's Basketball team continued its strong start by improving to 2-0 with its second straight ASC road win at UT-Dallas. The Mountaineers trailed 37-26 late in the first half but used a 14-3 run to close the half and then a 13-2 run midway through the second half to earn the win at UTD. Against preseason favorite (ASC East Division) UT-Tyler, SU took an eight point lead in the first half but the Patriots were able to chip away at the lead and pull out the hard-fought win. Lynn Stow led SU with 37 points in the two games while Vanessa Lopez had 35. Schreiner has its home opener tonight.

MEN'S BASKETBALL: lost, 95-103, at UT-Dallas and lost, 75-86, at UT-Tyler. The Mountaineers fell behind at UTD early and made a valiant effort in rallying but could not catch the Comets. Against UTT, SU again got behind early and could not catch up. Kevin Deans paced the Mountaineers on each night, scoring 20 vs. UTD and 21 at UTT. Jonathan Young had 36 points in the two games.
