Nov. 22 – The UTPB women’s basketball team continued their strong start to the season with an 86-53 victory against Sul Ross State in a non-conference matchup Monday at Falcon Dome.

Playing in their home opener, the Falcons improved to 3-1 for the season while the Lobos fell to 1-4.

It was the Falcons’ last game before Thanksgiving.

“I think Sul Ross did a very good job,” said UTPB head coach Rae Boothe. “They had back-to-back matches before coming here.

“Honestly, they came out fighting. It was a ball game for the whole first half, so give them credit. I think different people contributed in different ways tonight. We’re excited about that.”

Holly Hemmeline and Divian Spencer each had 15 points to lead UTPB, while Andreea Mancha had 13 and Avalon Muñoz 11.

“We started off a little rough,” Hemmeline said. “We prepare all week for them. We treat this like a regular season game.

“But we started a little rough. After halftime, we came off a little rough, but our percentage went up in the second half.”

Brianna Martin had a game-high 21 points to lead Sul Ross State, with Marley Rokas finishing with 15 on the road.

The Halcones began the game with a 5-0 run caused by a triple from Mancha.

The Lobos responded with a 6-0 run that was capped off by a three-point play by Marley Rokas.

UTPB responded quickly and took a 10-6 lead after back-to-back baskets by Hemmeline and Alexus Quaadman.

The Falcons continued their momentum late in the first quarter for a 20-12 lead after 10 minutes following a Naomi Pierce layup.

UTPB carried their momentum into the second quarter on a three-point play by Muñoz after taking a defensive charge on a layup.

Ally Haman extended the Falcons’ lead to 30-15 with a 3-pointer from the left corner with 7:20 remaining before halftime.

The Lobos responded with a 4-0 run, capped by a layup by Melody Martinez, but the Falcons were able to build a 42-29 lead at halftime.

Sul Ross started the second half on a 6-3 run before a timeout, and the Falcons responded after the fast break.

Hemmeline scored in the paint and hit a 3-pointer as the Falcons led 50-37 with 4:49 to play.

A 12-2 run soon followed and the Falcons were in firm control, leading 65-39 after the third quarter.

UTPB wouldn’t concede much in the fourth quarter and the Falcons couldn’t deny them.

The Falcons return to the road to take on Metro State Denver on Friday at 3 pm in Colorado. They will face Colorado Christian the next day in Lakewood, Colorado.

“It’s going to be a tough two games for us,” Boothe said. “Metro State and Colorado Christain are two very good teams. We’re going to play one game at a time.

“We have a lot of work to do. But I have a lot of confidence in this team. I’m sure they’re up to the task.”

UTPB’s next home game will be against Texas A&M International on December 1 to kick off Lone Star Conference play.

Sul Ross State will take on Shreiner University at 1 pm on November 26 in Brownwood.

The Wolves begin conference play on December 1 against the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Ark.
