   Ram basketball fell 88-72 to Midwestern State in the Lonestar Conference tournament final on March 5 in Allen, TX.Despite a stellar performance by senior forward Omari Gudul, who led the team in scoring with 15 points and three others in double digit scoring, the Rams could not muster up the offense to match the Mustangs.
   The Rams scored the first points of the game to gain a two point lead early.That was only one of their two leads in the game as the Mustangs held the potent Ram offense to just 31.4% shooting from the floor. Junior guard Quay King was just 2-10 in three-point shooting for the Rams in this game.Aside from the score, the stat-sheet suggests this was a closer game than it may have seemed in real time. The Rams had more second chance points (23) than MSU (12).Compared to ASU’s 31.4 percent from the floor, MSU shot a resounding 53.8 percent.The game got out of hand when the bench hit the court and started scoring points.MSU scored a staggering 32 points off the bench compared to the Rams’ nine points. 

   After the loss, the Rams received the No. 3 seed in the South-Central regional tournament hosted by MSU. The Rams will face the No. 6 seed, Arkansas-Fort Smith, on March 12 in Wichita Falls and the time is to be announced.
