The Rams Basketball team won its game against St. Edwards University 106-93 Saturday, Nov. 18, keeping them undefeated.

Junior guard Ja’Michael Brown had a career high of 22 points in the game followed by junior Will Adler with 21, senior redshirt Brandon Williams (19), junior Daron Mims (16) and junior Antonio Singleton (14).

Williams led the team on defense with seven boards, four steals and two blocks.

"I thought he really set the tone for our team tonight," head coach Cinco Boone said. "His enthusiasm and senior leadership really showed tonight."

Boone said St. Edwards has a very talented offensive team, and the Rams were aware that they were a good team.

"We have a lot of respect for St. Edward’s because the last two times we have played them it’s come down to a one point game" Boone said.

Boone said the only had one day to prepare for this team because he doesn’t like to jump games. He works on the game they have closest.

"Our staff and players did a good job with the one-day prep time and shoot around. we had," Boone said. "I can’t say enough about my staff and what they put together, they players and what they did but it was a good win for us."

Boone said they still have a long way to go,All these games are helping us prepare but we have to learn with each game, each day, we have to be sure we are getting better defensively," Boone said.

Boone said every team presents challenges and hopes that they can continue to improve.

"Everyone can see our talent and the weapons in our repertoire but we need to continue to work on our defense," Boone said.

Williams said they played together as a team.

"We didn’t get too low on ourselves when times got tough," Williams said.

Williams said they have to stay together through any hard moments.

"We can come out on top as long as we do that," Williams said.

Williams said the players all have their good times and they pass they ball to whoever has a "hot hand" and then pass it to another player afterwards.

"We have a lot of different options and that helps us be successful," Williams said.

On Nov 21 the Rams won 88-80 against St. Mary’s University (TX) and also beat Central Baptist College on Nov 24 68-54. The team lost its game on Nov 24 against Lubbock Christian 65-69.

The Rams have a game on Dec 7 against Midwestern State University at 7:30 p.m. in the Junell Center.
