Welcome back, Schreiner Community!
While you’ve been away from campus, the basketball teams have been going full out in your absence. Now that the spring semester has started, so too have several of our spring sports in preparation for the beginning of their competitive contests. This weekend, both basketball teams have a pair of home contests at the Event Center. Friday’s games are at 6:00 and 8:00 pm while Saturday’s matchups are scheduled for 4:00 and 6:00 pm. We hope you can come out and support your Mountaineers.
Here’s a quick recap of where the basketball teams are heading into the second half of the SCAC schedule:
WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: after a slow start in the non-conference portion of the schedule, the squad has played much better in the games that count most – the conference schedule. The women are currently 4-3 in SCAC play and have a couple of very impressive wins under their belts. SU knocked off TLU at home 10 days ago in overtime and then went on the road at previously-unbeaten Austin College and notched an 80-70 win. Senior Kelsie Jackson leads the team in scoring at 14.4 points/per game while freshman Dyamond Puebla leads in rebounding at 7.0/game.
MEN’S BASKETBALL: in a bit of a reversal with the women, the men’s team was above .500 in the non-conference season, but sits at 1-6 in SCAC play at the mid-point of the league schedule. The men will try to end a four-game losing streak on Friday. Junior Wes Miller leads the team in scoring at 15.6 ppg and senior Christian Pena leads in rebounding at 6.8./contest.
Schedule for the week ahead:
MEN’S BASKETBALL vs. Austin (Stephens Family Arena) at 6:00 pm
WOMEN’S BASKETBALL vs. Austin (Stephens Family Arena) at 8:00 pm
MEN’S BASKETBALL vs. Dallas (Stephens Family Arena) at 4:00 pm
WOMEN’S BASKETBALL vs. Dallas (Stephens Family Arena) at 6:00 pm
