Mustangs stampede Buffaloes 73-58, win 9th straight

 The MSU Mustangs dominated West Texas A&M on Wednesday night, 73-58, cruising to their 9th straight win.

Midwestern State (13-3, 2-0) crushed West Texas A&M (9-5, 0-1) on the glass, outrebounding the undermanned Buffaloes 48-28. MSU forward Xavier Blackburn led the Mustangs with 12 rebounds to go along 17 points.

In a game that MSU never trailed, the Mustangs would build as much as a 9 point lead in the first half, only to see the Buffaloes trim that to 1 point on a triple from WT guard David Chavlovich with 4:07 to play before halftime.

MSU quickly rebounded, closing the first half on consecutive dunks by senior forward Abiodun Adegoke to give the Mustangs a 30-23 lead at the break. Adegoke finished with 13 points and 6 rebounds.

"Our inside play was good tonight," said MSU head coach Nelson Haggerty. "It's good to see us taking advantage of the shots we have down there."

The paint was open all night for Midwestern State. The Mustangs dominated the undersized Buffs, outscoring them 46-26 in the lane.

Senior Khapri Alston was a big part of that inside success. Alston grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds and poured in 18 big points.

"Khapri rebounded so well tonight," said Haggerty. "He made big plays to put the ball in the basket."

The Mustangs jumped out of halftime energized. A seven point lead ballooned to a 21 point lead by the 13:50 mark following a traditional 3-point play from senior guard Kevin Wagner.

The Buffs would trim the lead back to nine, 67-58, with 2:50 to play. The Mustangs again responded closing the game on a 6-0 run.

MSU had another balanced attack, seeing four Mustangs score in double digits, including 10 points from Bretson McNeal.

The win pushes Midwestern's home winning streak to 13 games, and 6 straight against West Texas.

The Mustangs hit the road for their next contest, traveling to play the Greyhounds of Eastern New Mexico on Sunday, December 11. Tip-off is set for 5 p.m. Catch all of the action on ESPN 95.5 FM.
