The Rams basketball team earned another Lone Star Conference win to close out Senior Day with a victory over the UT Permian Basin Falcons 93-80.
This win moved ASU to an 18-7 overall record on the season and 11-5 in the LSC. The win also held ASU’s third place standing in the conference.
Junior Collin Turner led the Rams with 19 points on 6-10 shooting from the field, 3-4 from behind the three-point line and 4-4 from the free-throw line.
Turner also added three rebounds and three assists. He was one of the five players in double figures in points.
Senior Kiair Crouch had 18 points on 6-12 shooting from the field and made all six shots from three-point range.
Juniors Antonio Singleton and Daron Mims finished with 14 points each.
Singleton recorded five rebounds and two steals in the game. Senior Josh Boutte finished with 11 points and seven rebounds.
Senior Valentine Sangoyomi led the team on the backboards with 10 rebounds, five which were offensive.
ASU started the game fast, leading 13-4 in under four minutes into the game, including one bucket from Mims.
The Rams got their first double-digit lead with under nine minutes in the first half when Crouch made his third 3-pointer of the game.
Singleton made a final 3-pointer before the buzzer went off, going into halftime with the Rams in the lead.
In the second half, the Rams pushed their lead to 16 points on two free throws by sophomore Paul Williams.
The Falcons began to close the gap to six points when the Rams continued to pull away as Turner made several baskets. He made a pullup jumper from inside the arc, a layup and two 3-pointers.
From this point of the game, the Rams didn’t let the lead drop below 13 points to end the game with a victory.
ASU shot 45 percent from the field and 40 percent from the three-point line. The team also outrebounded the Falcons 39-30.
