MSU Men Roll Past Jarvis Christian

Midwestern State's Anthony Harris completed a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Mustangs to an 86-54 win over Jarvis Christian Wednesday night at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.
 
The Mustangs, who improved to 5-0 for the second time in the last three years, open Lone Star Conference play Wednesday night at Texas A&M-Commerce.
 
MSU took advantage of its size and athleticism to dominate the glass by a 55-33 margin, fueling a 20-9 edge in second chance points.
 
Freshman guard Derrell Gibbs and senior forward David Terrell also had 10 boards for the Mustangs, while junior forward Jeff Grayer hustled for six points and nine boards.
 
The Mustangs slowly pulled away to lead by as many as 15 points in the opening half before dominating the second half.
 
MSU held the Bulldogs without a field goal for a 10:18 stretch during a prolonged 23-2 run between field goals by Marcus O'Key at the 16:41 mark and a Carlton Dean jumper in the paint with 5:23 to play.
 
Junior guard DeJuan Plummer joined Harris as the lone MSU players in double figures finishing with 19 points on 5-of-10 shooting with a pair of 3-pointers while connecting on each of his seven charity tosses.
 
Dean paced Jarvis Christian with 13 points as Midwestern limited the Bulldogs to 32.1 percent shooting from the field.
 
NAIA Jarvis Christian fell to 1-1 on the season.

Logan Named LSC Defensive Player of the Week

Midwestern State's Keonte' Logan garnered Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors Wednesday when the league announced its weekly awards.
 
The senior guard from Wichita Falls High School played a key defensive role while helping the Mustangs to a pair of wins at the Al Kaly Classic last weekend in Pueblo, Colo.
 
Logan posted a line of seven points, five rebounds, three steals and blocked shot in a 79-64 win over New Mexico Highlands on Friday before notching eight points, two rebounds and two steals in a 70-56 victory Saturday night against host Colorado State-Pueblo.
 
The Mustangs started 4-0 for the fourth time as an NCAA Division II member and for the first time since rolling to a 14-0 mark to start their first Elite Eight season of 2009-10.
 
Entering Wednesday night's game, MSU led the LSC in scoring margin at +21.0 and is third in field goal percentage defense holding the opposition to a .386 shooting percentage.
 
Texas A&M-Kingsville's Ashton Brown claimed top offensive honors averaging 16 points and 3.8 assists per game in wins over Texas Lutheran, St. Edward's and Sul Ross State.
 
The Mustangs tip off league play next Wednesday at Texas A&M-Commerce.
