The ASU men’s basketball team on Feb. 20 defeated Texas A&M University – Kings­ville, 80-73.

The starting lineup for the Rams were seniors Camron Reedus, Andres Ibarguen, Marcel Pettway, Collin Turner and junior Paul Williams.

Ibarguen started the game off with a layup, but TAMUK followed with a 3-pointer, making the score 3-2. The two teams contin­ued staying close, but eventually ASU started taking a bigger lead. Turner shot a 3-pointer, giving the Rams a 6-point lead and making the score 13-7 within the first 5 minutes of the half.

At the end of the first half, the score was 42-36.

To start the second half, Pettway scored, which brought the game to 44-38, but TA­MUK caught up and overpassed them, bring­ing the score to 49-48.

The game went back and forth until the last two minutes when the Rams took and kept the lead. ASU would win 80-73.

Turner put up a total of 44 points, which tied for the third most points in a sin­gle game, and he was also recognized as play­er of the game.

“I knew they were ahead of us in the conference, and the coach told us they were harsh, but we stayed focused and de­termined,” Turner said. “Every man on the court had to play their part in the beginning when we were down but we didn’t take our foot off the gas.”
