Mountaineer Update

from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director     
January 24, 2007

My apologies to all (particularly the members of the SU Basketball teams) for not getting an update out last week.

Even though the calendar (and the weather) clearly indicates that we're in the middle of winter, we're only a little over one week away from the beginning of spring sports season - and we have a big SU Basketball doubleheader tomorrow in Edington Center. There aren't many more home basketball games left this season and tomorrow's are important for both teams so come out and support your Mountaineers. 
A quick look back at Mountaineer action...
More on the spring sports next week but here's a look back and ahead for SU Basketball ...

MEN'S BASKETBALL: went 2-2 over the past two weeks. Beat Howard Payne (88-82), beat Sul Ross State (86-79), lost at Hardin-Simmons (74-89) and lost at McMurry (71-90). The Mountaineers (5-8 in ASC) head into the final month of the season in the thick of the race for an ASC postseason spot. Key late game free-throw shooting led to the two SU wins. Kevin Deans and Richard Moore paced SU in the win over Howard Payne with a combined 40 points. Deans again led Mountaineer scorers in the SRS win with 23 as Jonathan Young added 19. Last week, Schreiner dropped a pair of road games in Abilene. The Mountaineers fell to McMurry despite Deans totals of 19 points and a career-high 17 rebounds.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL: went 1-4 over the two weeks. The Mountaineers (5-8 in ASC play) had a difficult run of nationally-ranked opponents and also battled weather in their toughest stretch of the season. Lost to #9 Howard Payne, beat Sul Ross State, lost at Dallas, lost at #15 Hardin-Simmons and lost at #13 McMurry. In the Sul Ross State win, Schreiner used a 34-15 run midway through the first half to build a sizeable lead but the game was really decided late in the second half when back-to-back three point baskets by Monica Enriquez and Lynn Stow ended a SRS rally.
