Gerlich seeks consistency from WT
The West Texas A&M Lady Buffs rolled through their first 10 basketball games of the season, dropping just one game to Southeastern Oklahoma State on Dec. 5. But there is still a list of things WT coach Krista Gerlich feels the No. 16 Lady Buffs (9-1) need to improve on before Lone Star Conference play begins in January.
"We need to work on consistency on both offense and defense," Gerlich said. "It's about knowing where our strengths are, lessening our turnovers and having better shot selection. We need to get better every single day. And we still have too many defensive breakdowns during the span of the game."
MSU looking to build on first conference win
The Midwestern State women picked up their first Lone Star Conference crossover win Saturday night, dropping Cameron University 59-46. They’ll try to make it two in a row tonight when they play host to the winless Southwestern Oklahoma State Bulldogs.
Tipoff in D.L. Ligon Coliseum is set for 6 p.m.
Pearl River stars sign with Texas colleges
Pearl River Community College football standouts Jamison Hughes and Sam Robinson have signed on with Division I teams.
Robinson finished his two-year stint at PRCC with 32 catches for 355 yards and two touchdowns. As a freshman, he had eight catches for 158 yards and two scores, while this past season he had 24 receptions for 197 yards and a TD.
Robinson will suit up for head coach Sam McElroy’s Texans this coming fall, which finished their 2009 campaign at 10-3 overall and 4-2 in the Lone Star Conference.
Nichols looks forward to Cactus Bowl
He finished his collegiate career as the second all-time leading receiver in Southeastern Oklahoma State history. Now he has a chance, however small, for football to continue being the biggest part of his life.
Daniel Nichols just finished his senior season with the Savage Storm, and will be one of two Southeastern representatives at the Cactus Bowl, an NCAA Division II senior bowl game, on January 8, 2010 in Kingsville, Tx.
“I didn’t really expect to play in it,” Nichols said. “I didn’t make All-Region so I figured there were some guys better than me. But I got my invitation and I’m excited about it.”
