Junior Josh Delaney (Harker Heights, TX) had 9 points in the win as Sam Houston State downed Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 82-50.
Northwestern routed a depleted Minnesota Gophers squad 83-60. Of personal significance Northwestern was also able to slow down Junior Jordan Murphy (San Antonio, TX) by holding him to 8 points. Murphy got into foul trouble and only played 17 minutes. This broke Murphy's double double streak at 17 games to start the season. He will now share the all time season starting streak with none other than the great Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs. By the way, both are U.S. Virgin Islanders.
USC beat Colorado 70-58. Senior George King (San Antonio, TX) had 21 points/9 rebounds in the loss. Former San Antonio Brennan High School Coach Tommy Hines has to be beaming as his former players King and Murphy are having great college careers and no doubt will continue on the be pros.
