UCPC on Jan. 23 held the annual Welcome Back Bash featuring two basketball games in the Junell Center.

The Belles and Rams faced off against the St. Ed­ward’s University Hilltoppers in back-to-back action.

In the first game, the Belles came out victorious with a score of 85-72. Senior Catara Samuel, junior Angel Hayden and freshman Sawyer Lloyd led the team with each player scor­ing in the double digits.

The Rams then suffered a close loss against SEU, with the game ending 77-78. The top scorers for ASU were seniors Ronald Bell, Collin Turner and Andres Ibarguen.

“We knew we had a tough opponent,” Turner said. “They are No. 6 in the country. I just had to play as hard, be the best team player as I could and benefit the team as most I can. I knew I had to be a well-round­ed player whether that was scoring, rebounding or assist­ing.”

Aside from the games, the event offered a variety of activities and giveaways. Those in attendance could win priz­es, free T-shirts and enjoy free food.

During halftime, a raf­fle took place where three con­testants had a chance to win $10,000.

In addition, there was a contest for the most spirited fraternity. Alpha Sigma Pi came in first place, winning $500. AMAS came in second, and Kappa Delta Rho came in third place.
