Mustangs Open LSC Play With Win Over Texas Women’s, Post 6th Straight Victory

The Midwestern State University women’s basketball team began Lone Star Conference play with a nice 70-59 win over the Texas Women’s University Pioneers (4-6, 0-1) on Thursday night.

MSU (9-3, 1-0) got a strong effort out of the bench, pouring in 30 points on the night. Sophmore guard Nicole Smallwood logged 13 as a reserve.

“All of our players work hard all week in practice and deserve to play. I have all the confidence that they will give it their all in the game,” said MSU head coach Noel Johnson. “Nicole played great. She created opportunities and was very solid defensively as well.”

Junior forward Andrea Carter notched her fifth double-double of the season, logging 12 points and a season-high 13 rebounds. The MSU defense created 9 steals that helped lead to 24 points off of turnovers for the game.

“It is nice to get this win tonight and shake off the cobwebs of the Christmas break. I think this can set the tone heading into a tough game at Commerce,” said Johnson.

In a return to her hometown, TWU guard and former Wichita Falls High School Lady Coyote Rebekah Cluley chipped in 7 points and grabbed 3 rebounds.

The Mustangs return to the court this Saturday as they travel to Texas A&M-Commerce. Tip-off is set for 2pm. Coverage can be found at
