Richardson, MSU roll again, upset No. 16 Ouachita Baptist
Nolan Richardson became the first Midwestern State player in nearly 55 years to pour in at least 30 points in three-straight games as the senior guard poured in 32 points to lead the Mustangs to a 77-72 upset of No. 16 Ouachita Baptist Sunday afternoon in the River City Classic at Bill Greehey Arena.
For the second straight day, the Mustangs erased double-digit opening-half deficit with a patented run of their own in the second half.
“We’ve finally put some pieces together and now we hate to go to the break now that we’ve got some people back,” MSU coach Jeff Ray said.
ACU ex added to Masters
The final official shot of 2008 was a tap-in birdie by Richard Sterne to win the South African Open in a playoff, capping his unlikely climb in the world rankings to be among 15 players Sunday earning a Masters invitation.
The 15 players not otherwise eligible except for their top-50 ranking were Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer, Ross Fisher, Luke Donald, Shingo Kayatama, Graeme McDowell, Rory Sabbatini, former Abilene Christian University standout Jeev Milkha Singh, Aaron Baddeley, McIlroy, Oliver Wilson, Sterne, Soren Hansen, Tang and Soren Kjeldsen.
