Mountaineer Update
from Ron Macosko, Athletic Director
February 5, 2014

Despite the cold, cold temperatures outside, basketball season is heating up as we head into the final few weeks of the regular season AND three of our spring sports start their season this weekend.  Our basketball teams are making their first-ever trip to Colorado Springs, CO to face Colorado College on Friday.  Congratulations to junior Charlies Nunez from the men’s team for being named a SCAC Character & Community Award nominee last week.  Congratulations also go to sophomore Kelsie Jackson on the women’s team who was named SCAC Co-Player of the Week for the second time in the past three weeks.  Women’s and Men’s Tennis start on Friday afternoon here at the Cree Tennis Complex against NAIA (scholarship) Our Lady of the Lake.  Schreiner Baseball starts their season in Alpine at Sul Ross State on Friday evening.  For start times, see below.

Here’s a recap of the past weekend:

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL:  went 2-0 last weekend, beating Austin College (74-64) in a key matchup and then beating Centenary (73-59) a day later.  With the wins, this 2013-14 squad broke the school record for wins in a season (11 and counting) and tied the school record for conference wins in a season (6 and counting).  Our women are now 6-3 in SCAC play, far-and-away the best record that an SU women’s basketball team has been in conference play this late in the season.   Jackson had a big weekend, averaging 23.5 points and 8.5 rebounds while shooting better than 50% from behind the arc.  Junior Lindsey Peterson averaged 17 points and four rebounds and continues to lead the league in scoring.

MEN’S BASKETBALL:  went 1-1 last weekend, beating AC (96-79) and then losing to Centenary, 77-59.  It was a strange weekend as the Mountaineers played great basketball in large spurts against the ‘Roos in dominating that game but then looked completely different in a loss to the Gents of CC.   Freshman Wes Miller scored 19 points in the win but didn’t score in the loss.  Senior AJ Myres averaged 18 points per game, but fouled out with five minutes to go on Saturday night.   Junior Hollis Robinson averaged 10 points and had nine rebounds vs. Centenary.  The men, who have lost three of their last four, face a tough challenge this weekend, especially in Colorado but a successful weekend would certainly get the team back on track.
