2/20 ENMU/Angelo State basketball capsules
Freedom New Mexico
ENMU (8-15, 3-6 Lone Star Conference South) at Angelo State (15-9, 6-3), 7 p.m. (MST) today at San Angelo, Texas.
Radio: KSEL-FM 105.9.
Last outing: The Greyhounds lost at sixth-ranked Midwestern State 76-57 last Saturday, while the Rams dropped a last-second 85-84 decision on Wednesday at West Texas A&M.
Notes: ENMU is fifth in the South, 1 1/2 games behind WT (14-11, 5-5) after the Buffaloes’ win on Wednesday. The Hounds probably need to win their last three games and hope WT drops its final two next week (at Texas A&M-Kingsville and against Abilene Christian) to sneak into the South’s fourth and final berth in the upcoming LSC tournament. … The Rams are 9-1 at home, losing only to Central Oklahoma 95-93. … LaMarshall Corbett, a 6-3 junior G, matched a season best with 36 points at WT. He leads the LSC in scoring (24.5 ppg), 3-point FG percentage (48 percent, 73-of-148) and FT percentage (91 percent, 186-of-205). Corbett, who also has a team-best 67 assists, is nearly five points ahead of No. 2 Dauntae Williams of UCO (19.8). … In Angelo’s 92-88 win at Greyhound Arena on Jan. 30, Corbett scored 27 points, but shot just 5-of-15 from the field and 3-of-9 from 3-point range. He did make 14-of-15 free throws. … ENMU junior G Reggie Nelson scored a season-high 31 points in that game, hitting 13-of-14 from the line. … ENMU is second in the LSC in FT percentage (.705).
ENMU (7-17, 2-7) at Angelo State (11-12, 4-5 Lone Star Conference South), 5 p.m. (MST) today at San Angelo, Texas.
Radio: KSEL-AM 1450.
Last outing: The Zias rallied from 10 points down with six minutes left to win at Midwestern State 51-49 on Saturday. The Rambelles lost at eighth-ranked West Texas A&M 64-53 on Wednesday.
Notes: The Zias led virtually all the way in their Jan. 30 matchup with ASU at Greyhound Arena. Til-Lois Fifer’s 3-point play with 46 seconds left gave ENMU a 62-58 lead, but the Rambelles won 64-62, shooting 6-of-8 from the line the rest of the way and 24-of-33 for the game. The Zias turned it over on their final three possessions. … Leaders for ASU are 5-7 junior G Camille Perkins (14.8 ppg, 57 assists, 35 steals) and 6-1 sophomore C Paige Weishuhn (12.1 ppg, 45 percent 3-point FG percentage on 27-of-60, 29 blocks). … Perkins has started all 23 games and Weishuhn 22 for Angelo, but no one else has started more than 16. … Angelo is 4-0 in games decided by five points or less since early January, including three in South play.
