The ASU men’s basketball team on Feb. 9 earned a victory over Texas A&M University-Kingsville 77-72.
This win moved the Rams to a record of 16-5 overall and 9-3 in the Lone Star Conference.
Kiair Crouch led his team. The junior shot 5-7 from the field and finished with 15 points and three steals.
Sophomore Paul Williams also finished in double figures with 12 points, an assist, a rebound and a steal. 
The other Rams who scored had either eight or nine points.
Junior Ronald Bell and senior Josh Boutte each finished with nine points and seven rebounds. Bell shot 7-10 from the free-throw line. 
Daron Mims, Marcel Pettway, Antonio Singleton and Collin Turner all finished with eight points each.
Mims, junior, made both 3-pointers he attempted. Pettway, junior, scored a massive dunk in the first half. Singleton, junior, shot 6-6 from the free-throw line and Turner made four free throws down the stretch.
The game was close throughout both halves. As soon as ASU extended their lead, the Javelinas would come back and take the lead from them.
