LSC Basketball Quick Notes

After four weeks of divisional play, just one men’s team - Central Oklahoma - has a perfect record in conference play.

The LSC men have a 172-131 overall record so far this season, including a 91-61 mark in the South Division and 81-70 in the North. In league crossover play the South has the advantage, 27-22. In the NCAA South Central Region, the men’s teams are currently 24-11 combined versus Heartland Conference teams and 3-2 against the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA).

Harvey Martin Inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame
On Monday night, former Texas A&M University-Commerce standout Harvey Martin was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2009.

Former Hog Selected to Pro Football Hall of Fame
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Former Vikings defensive tackle John Randle was selected to the Hall of Fame on Saturday in the Class of 2010.

"It's an unbelievable feeling because of where I came from and what it took to just make it in the NFL," Randle said by phone from his home in Medina. "Words can't describe what it means. I'm in the Hall of Fame!"

Randle collected 137.5 sacks during his career and was named All-Pro six times with seven Pro Bowl appearances. He was a member of the the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 1990s.

Signed by the Vikings in 1990 as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Texas A&I, Randle played 14 seasons (13 as a starter) and became the NFL’s all-time sack leader among defensive tackles. His 137.5 sacks rank tied for sixth among all players in league history. He had 114 as a member of the Vikings, third most in team history.

“We are extremely proud today that John has been selected as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2010,” Vikings Owner and Chairman Zygi Wilf said in a statement. “As an undrafted rookie free agent, John’s hard work and perseverance paid off as he became one of the greatest defensive linemen to play the game. We look forward to having John enshrined in Canton, and we are grateful for his part in Minnesota Vikings history.”
