Close games continue to haunt the University of St. Thomas men's basketball team. The undersized and outmanned Celts battled throughout two hard fought Red River Athletic Conference games this weekend, but unfortunately came up short in both contests. Friday night St. Thomas traveled to Langston and came up on the wrong end of a 73-71 final.
The St. Thomas Celts sure do like the friendly confines of Jerabeck Activity and Athletic Center. Saturday evening UST came out firing threes from the beginning of the game and never looked back. By the time the final horn sounded the Celts were 16 of 32 from behind the arc and came away with an 88-72 RRAC victory over Texas College. St. Thomas only led 31-28 at the half but scored 57 points in the second half.
The phrase "Next Man Up"' is quite common in athletics. When a team loses a player or two, someone new must be ready to step up and take his place. Well, Thursday evening at the Jerabeck Activity and Athletic Center the Celts were a little shorthanded. Sophomore Bryon Makel (FR/The Woodlands, Texas) was ready for the challenge. Earning a starting spot, Makel took advantage of the opportunity by leading the team with 16 points, 5 rebounds and a thunderous first half dunk that seemed to wake up UST and the crowd.
The Celts Men's basketball team traveled to Louisiana for a very tough two-game swing and came away with an appreciate split. Friday night St. Thomas earned their first ever win at LSU-Shreveport 99-96 in overtime. It was the 3rd straight overtime road conference game. However, after dropping overtime games at Jarvis Christian and Wiley College, UST was able to get the win in Louisiana.
