ASU win makes statement
Shavar Burch is back and so are the Angelo State Rams.
Picked to finish second in the Lone Star Conference South Division in the preseason, the ASU men’s basketball team went into Wednesday’s division opener against unbeaten No. 7 Midwestern State with a mediocre 8-6 record.
The Rams needed a strong showing against the defending LSC champion Mustangs to serve notice to the rest of the division that they are the team to be reckoned with like they were predicted to be.
The Rams got that strong showing and made the loudest statement in the conference so far this season.
ACU begins indoor track off and running under new coach
The Roosevelt Lofton era gets under way today for the Abilene Christian track and field program, as the men’s and women’s teams open the indoor season at the University of Houston’s Leonard Hilton Invitational.
Lofton takes over a program that’s been one of the best in Division II — winning a total of 51 national titles both indoors and outdoors since 1982. Yet Lofton, a former Grambling and Virginia Tech coach, isn’t worried about living up to the past.
“I’ve been doing this for a long time,” he said. “I’m just trying to start off right, and hopefully we can make our own legacy.”
Lofton replaces Don D. Hood, who stepped down in June after four years as the Wildcats’ coach for a similar job at Brownwood High School.
