Another weekend means another round of WAC Hoops. Let’s take a look at what went down
Seattle U at Dixie State
Friday: Dixie State wins 77-76
Saturday: Seattle U wins 77-56
Seattle U visited Dixie State over the weekend and split the series in Burns Arena. Dixie State won a tight game Friday, fending off a tough Seattle U run in the 2nd half. However, the Trailblazers got dominated Saturday as Seattle U finally got back in form after a three week pause due to COVID.
The Redhawks were led by Darion Trammell who went off for 30 points in both games, whilst the Trailblazers were led by Hunter Schofield who averaged 12.5 points per game in the series.
California Baptist at New Mexico State in El Paso
Friday: Cal Baptist wins 85-75
Saturday: New Mexico State wins 97-70
The California Baptist Lancers took on the Aggies of New Mexico State in El Paso, Texas this past weekend. Despite a great win by Cal Baptist on Friday, the Aggies stormed back Saturday and crushed Cal Baptist, putting on a performance like the New Mexico State we’re used to seeing.
Gorjok Gak had another impressive series for the Lancers, averaging 15.5 points across the two games. For the Aggies, it was Jabari Rice leading the way with 37 points across both games, New Mexico State’s leading scorer in both games.
UTRGV at Texas Southern
Texas Southern wins 77-75
UTRGV took a trip north to Houston to take on the Texas Southern Tigers. The game was scheduled on short notice due to the weekend series against GCU being postponed.
It was a back-and-forth game, but the Vaqueros lost on a tip in at the buzzer. UTRGV saw five players in double digits, with Malik Lawrence-Anderson leading the way with 16 points off the bench.
We are also saddened at the abrupt loss of UTRGV head coach Lew Hill. The WAC Hoops Digest wishes condolences to the family of UTRGV head coach Lew Hill and the entire UTRGV basketball program during this time.
Southwest Adventist at Tarleton State
Tarleton State wins 97-28
Tarleton State hosted Southwest Adventist on Saturday, and throttled them 97-28. It was a great tune-up game for Billy Gillispie and his program. The Texans saw four players score in double digits, notable of which Junior Hero Ngalamulume going for his new season-high of 20 points.
