We’re in the holiday period of the year but also have finals coming up. There are a lot of stressed out looks around campus which is understandable.
Our basketball teams are going to be on the road for the next month for a series of games in and around finals and the holidays. The next time SU teams take the home court, it will be Friday, January 16th for the official grand opening of the Schreiner Events Center. More on that in the weeks to come but mark your calendar. Prepare well and good luck to all Schreiner students for finals!

Here’s a quick look back at recent action for both of our basketball teams:
MEN’S BASKETBALL: lost a heart-breaking game last week against Hardin-Simmons on a last second technical foul call against SU. Rebounded with a thrilling come-from-behind 79-78 win over UT-Tyler last night. The Mountaineers trailed by 19 points with less than 16 minutes to play, but senior Steve Guerrero and Ryan Evans and sophomore Wes Miller keyed the furious rally for the victory. Guerrero scored 19 points to go with eight rebounds in the win. Evans scored 12 points and Miller had 11 including 7-for-8 free throws.
WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: beat Hardin-Simmons, 56-53, but lost both games at the Southwestern Thanksgiving Classic (to Louisiana and Howard Payne). In the win, junior Kelsie Jackson had a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds. SU ended the game with a 9-2 run to rally past the Cowgirls. Junior Tylor Rambeau hit the go-ahead basket with :53 left and the stingy SU defense shut down HSU. Schreiner lost a tough contest vs. Louisiana on Saturday when LC’s Anna Phillips scored with three seconds left for a 50-48 win. Sophomore Sabriyyah Fennell was outstanding, scoring 18 points to go with seven boards.
