The Cardinals had won seven of eight games rolling into 2012 and were coming off of a 62-51 win over league-leading No. 3 Tarleton State Saturday night in San Antonio.

Midwestern scored the first nine points of the game and led by as many as 11 points in the opening half before Cardinals fought back to close the margin to 36-32 at halftime.

MSU made it a laugher by outpointing the Cardinals 41-21 in the second half pushing the lead to as many as 77-52 with 1:29 to play.

Michael Loyd completed a solid all-around night performance by adding seven rebounds and five assists, while Keonte' Logan connected on three 3-pointers to finish with 12 points and six assists.

Junior guard DeJuan Plummer added 11 points on 4-for-7 shooting off of the bench including a trio of treys, while senior forward David Terrell had eight points and two rebounds.

The win was the Mustangs' 12th-straight win under the Dome, where they have now won 52 of their last 53 home games.

Chris Johnson tallied a game-high 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds for Incarnate Word, which fell to 13-9 and 9-6.

MSU Storms Past Cardinals 76-65

Savannah Carver poured in 20 points for the third consecutive game to lead Midwestern State to a 76-65 Lone Star Conference win over Incarnate Word Wednesday night at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.

The win was the 10th consecutive victory for the Mustangs at D.L. Ligon Coliseum as they improved 17-4 on the season and to 13-2 in league play.

With a win on Saturday at Texas A&M-Kingsville, the Mustangs will play Tarleton State for the conference lead Monday night at D.L. Ligon Coliseum. The TexAnnes fell at Texas Woman's Wednesday night for their first LSC loss of the season.

Midwestern led by as many nine points in the opening half, but Incarnate Word clawed back to within 35-32 at intermission.

The Mustangs used a 10-2 run late in the second half after Chloe Wallace gave UIW its lone lead of the second half on a jumper with 7:22 to play.

Carver kicked off the run with a runner in the lane before Kirsti Degelia converted a transition layup. Freshman guard Dianna Jones culminated the run with a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws to give the Mustangs a 68-61 edge with 3:54 to go.

Degelia completed a perfect night by going 4-for-4 from the floor including a season-high three 3-pointers to finish with 14 points to go along with three assists and two rebounds.

The Mustangs got a pair of strong inside performances from senior forward Cierra Thompson (9 points, 9 rebounds) and freshman Andrea Carter (9 points, 10 rebounds).
