MSU men tie best mark in school history
Southwestern Oklahoma State just seems to bring out the best in Anthony Moore. In Moore’s first encounter with the Bulldogs — on Jan. 10 of last season — he scored a career-high 19 points. Then in the championship game of the Lone Star Conference Tournament a year ago, the 6-3 guard had a double-double 14 points and 14 rebounds to land a spot on the all-tournament team and lead Midwestern State to a 66-60 win over Southwestern. The fun continued for the MSU senior Monday night in D.L. Ligon Coliseum.
Bronchos slip past Rams 95-93

With the loss the Rams fell to 6-4 on the season.
Buffs impressive in rout of Lions
Not even Santa Claus can top the gift West Texas A&M men's basketball coach Rick Cooper received from his players Monday night.
On a night something rarely seen on a basketball court at any level - Texas A&M-Commerce senior Ronnie Morgan was whistled for three technical fouls, suffered a nasty cut to his forehead which drew a stream of blood, kicked two chairs, spit on a referee and was ejected from the game - the Buffs handed Commerce its second loss of the season, 92-71, in front of 771 fans in the First United Bank Center.
"I thought we persevered through a very physical and very hard-fought Lone Star Conference matchup," Cooper said. "You hate to say this sometimes, but blood on the floor is how this league is played sometimes. ... I was proud of the way our kids kept their poise. I've spent Christmas break both ways (after a win and loss) and it's lot more enjoyable for the kids to go home with a win. We beat a good team."

Rambelles unable to snap out of slump
The Angelo State women’s basketball team will have plenty of time to think about this one — and the previous three. The Rambelles lost their fourth straight game, 65-49 to Central Oklahoma in a Lone Star Conference crossover game Monday at the Junell Center, to fall to 5-7 on the season. The ’Belles won’t play again until Jan. 7 at East Central (Okla.).

College basketball Northeastern State sweeps ACU
The Abilene Christian women let one get away. The ACU men nearly stole one. It all added up to a Northeastern State sweep in a Lone Star Conference crossover basketball doubleheader Monday at Moody Coliseum. The Northeastern State women outscored ACU 21-6 in the final 5:14 to pull out a 66-59 come-from-behind victory and snap the Wildcats’ five-game winning streak.
“I think we started playing a little bit sloppy for about a five-minute span there,” ACU coach Shawna Lavender said. “You just can’t afford to do that. I thought we really got passive offensively and didn’t look to attack that well.”
