** MEN'S BASKETBALL NEWS: For those of you who were not in historic Titan Gym last night, let's quickly review: Neither the overhead or sideline scoreboards or time clocks worked. The 35 second clocks on top of the backboards didn't work. The replacement 35 second clocks put on the floor didn't work. The game time had to be kept on a small hand operated unit at the scoring table, and the score was kept by flip cards. On top of that, the Fightin' Titans (0-0, 3-0) made their fans endure a tortuous 8 minute or so scoreless drought, that made water-boarding seem like a trip to a day spa. Despite all of that, the Titans came away with an 84-73 victory over New Mexico State.
After falling behind 25-3 with 10:04 left in the first half, and the situation seemingly hopeless. The Titans unleashed an 81-48 shock and awe scoring onslaught, as passing lanes began to open for dunks and lay-ups, and our outside shots finally began to fall with some consistency.
Aaron Thompson again led all scorers with 22 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. Jacques Streeter shook of his early shooting woes to score a double-double, with 20 points 10 assists. Gerard Anderson had 9 rebounds to go with his 14 points and 5 assists. Although Jer'Vaughn Johnson had to play many minutes at the center position due to Bryce Webster's foul trouble, he came up huge with a double-double, consisting of10 rebounds and 12 points. Orane Chin was the biggest contributor from the bench, with 10 points and 4 rebounds.
The Titans outshout the Aggies .467 to .344. They also dominated the boards 45 to 33. The Titans were 10-23 (.423) from 3-point distance. A dramatic improvement from UCLA.
The Titans head to Nacogdoches, Texas next week to face Central Arkansas and Stephen F. Austin.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!
Go Titans! Wear Orange !!
