Rams finish regular season undefeated at home with 17 wins

The 2014-2015 Rams basketball team will go in the record books as one of the best teams ASU has seen in many years.

Holding multiple records, the Rams basketball team will be advancing in the Lone Star Conference championship this week.

The Rams finished the regular season at the Junell Center Feb. 28 against Texas A&M-Kingsville. This was by far their closest win of the season, with a final score of 88-70.

This win over the Javelinas made it the Rams’ 17th consecutive win at the Junell center and gave them an undefeated winning streak at home.

This was the last home game for five of the Rams, who are seniors. They are:

• No. 00 Demario Mayfield

• No. 3 Marsell Holden

• No. 5 Chris Jones

• No.11 Raijon Kelly

• No.35 Tommy Woolridge

Holden was a break out player, not just for the game, but also for the season. He finished with 13 points, six of those being from two threepointers, making Holden number two in the record books with the most three pointers in a season in Ram basketball history.

He currently has 83 three-pointers this season, only one away from the record-holder Kenny Smith, who played in the 05-06 season and managed to make 84 three-point shots that season.

Jones was also a leading scorer, with 15 points, but he had two steals and four rebounds as well.

Kelly also had an outstanding night, leading the Rams with 16 points. He also had a season-high eight rebounds and helped the team with five assists.

“It was a good and bad feeling,” Kelly said. “On one end I am glad we got to end the season on a good note and with a win, but on the bad note this was my last time playing in the Junell Center so it was heartbreaking.”

Woolridge had an impressive performance in their last game, collecting a season-high 15 points, all from beyond the arch, going five for eight at the three-point line.

The Rams play again this week in the Lone Star Conference Championship in Allen, Texas, where they look to come home victorious.

“I believe we will do well in the tournament, we just got to play like we play and we will be alright,” Kelly said.

They plan to advance to finish off the basketball season in the DII South Central Regional in Evansville, Indiana.

The Rams had a great season this year that set the standard for years to come.
