MSU Women's Basketball Rolls Texas Wesleyan

Midwestern State's Andrea Carter entered Tuesday night as the reigning Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week.

She certainly started her case for her next honor leading the Mustangs to a 60-47 win over Texas Wesleyan in non-conference play at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.

The 5-10 forward from Angleton notched her 31st career double-double and second of the season posting 12 points while matching a career high with 20 rebounds to pace the Mustangs' attack.

"A-Town was fighting through a lot of contact tonight," MSU coach Noel Johnson said. "Her numbers could have been that much better."

The Mustangs used a 19-3 to put away the game after Texas Wesleyan edged ahead 42-41 on Caitlin Boal's baseline jumper with 7:27 to play.

MSU wrested the lead away for good on Carter's follow layup on the next possession, then Carter drew a player control foul on Stacey Darnley's drive to the bucket.

Then it was senior point guard Diana Jones' turned to shine as she connected on pair of free throws then knocked down her second triple of the night to give the Mustangs a 48-42 advantage.

Carter fueled the run with six more points before Lisa Hampton's fast break jumper with 1:37 to play gave MSU a commanding 60-45 edge.

Jones finished the night with a team-high 16 points to go along with four assists and three rebounds, while senior guard Shatoia Gober notched her second double-digit effort of the season by hitting 6-of-10 shots to finish with 14 points, three rebounds and three steals.

The Mustangs get two days to rest before taking on Central Oklahoma as part of the Texas Woman's University Pioneer Premiere Friday afternoon at Kitty Magee Arena in Denton. Tipoff is set for 5 p.m.

MSU closes classic play with a Saturday showdown with St. Mary's (Texas). Tipoff is set for 4 p.m.

Katelynn Threats had 17 points and six rebounds to pace Texas Wesleyan which dropped to 5-2 on the season.
