LSC Tourney Update: MSU Men Dispatch Javelinas, Move To Round 2

The Mustang men’s team began game one of the Lone Star Conference Championship in a funk, but after halftime they left Texas A&M-Kingsville in the dust, winning 77-61.

MSU never looked in sync during the first half, shooting an icy 28% from the floor. Also concerning for the Mustangs was rebounding. The Javelinas out-rebounded MSU 21-19 in the first half, helping lead TAMUK to a 27-25 halftime lead.

Things turned around for Nelson Haggerty’s team after intermission. MSU junior forward DeVaughn Jones was the spark that ignited a 52 point second half for the Mustangs. Jones played just 18 minutes but contributed a career high 15 points. The 6’5″ reserve also grabbed 7 rebounds and went a perfect 5-for-5 from the charity stripe.

Senior guard Monzaigo Williams was active in the second frame as well. Williams scored 10 of his 14 points in the second half while dishing out six assists. The Mustangs rallied behind the veteran guards play, closing out the Hoggies 77-61.

The Mustangs will play next on Friday afternoon at 2:30pm. They will face the winner of the Angelo State/Cameron contest. MSU split the season series with Angelo and defeated Cameron in both meetings.
