St. Mary’s 52

Tarleton State 71


Now Reed hits a 3. Texans are cruising on to round two, folks!

Texans throw it deep behind press. Hardge layup for largest lead of night.

And another, the junior is heating up!

There’s Hamilton’s first field goal!

St. Mary’s goes to full court press with Tarleton dominating.

Hamilton still no FGs but just knocked own two FTs for his first two points, then Clemons takes an oop off a steal and makes it 43-25.

Tarleton has scored the first 7 points of the new half – dunk by Carter, breakaway layup by Lee and a 3-pointer by Hardge.


Halftime stats:

TSU – Shooting – FG’s – 12-26 (46.2), 3’s 1-6 (16.7)

Carter 15, Lee 9

St. Mary’s – FG’s – 7-18 (38.9), 3’s – 2-5 (40)

Ryan Thomas 8



Davene Carter SMASH DOWN! 15 for the big man and Darkhorse Dunker.

Carter is too athletic, St. Mary’s doesn’t have an anser.

St. Marys knocks down its second 3-pointer, Tarleton yet to hit one.

10 for Carter, 9 for Lee to lead Texans early on.

Great D by Clemons, taking a charge from Ryan Thomas to lead to a media timeout.

Make that 10 as he takes an oop from Lee. But St. Mary’s answers with a trey by Marvin Binney.

Wow 8 points first 11:15 for Davene Carter, the Darkhorse Dunker!

Teams just exchanged tipins by their respective ‘big men.’

Nice St. Mary’s contingent made the 3-1/2 hour drive from San Antonio. Heckling Clemons as he hits 1-2 from the stripe.

Early on Tarleton shooting 62.5 percent, St. Mary’s 16.7 percent.

It’s a 8-0 Tarleton run as we come out of the first media timeout.

Carter steals it, and ducks it between his legs and slams it home highlight style! Your Darkhorse dunker showing off for the home crowd!

Lee has four and Carter two.

Tarleton goes to full court press early in this one.

Charging on EJ Reed, thought the defender leaned a bit, always a judgement call.

Mo Lee begins the scoring, no surprise there! He was named Daktronics All-Region selection.

Nothing but turnovers and ugly possessions so far for either team. Still very early.
