February 3, 2019

LAWTON, Okla. — There’s never a good time to have a scoring drought, but the Eastern New Mexico team certainly found a bad time to have it.

Tyus Momoh scored 14 points to lead four in double figures, and Cameron rallied form a 16-point deficit in the final nine minutes to score an 88-84 win Thursday night at Aggie Gym.

The Greyhounds (7-11, 4-6), who went scoreless for the final two minutes, fell into a tie with the Aggies for seventh place in the Lone Star Conference.

The Greyhounds had a nailbiter with Midwestern State, with Zach Parker hitting a go-ahead 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left for an 81-80 victory and a season sweep. No other information was available at press time.

The top eight teams in the conference will receive bids into March’s LSC tournament.

The Greyhounds led 73-57 with 8:55 to play after sophomore Devin Pullum knocked down a pair of free throws, but closed out the game with 4-of-15 shooting.

Cameron (8-12, 4-6), meanwhile, went 9-of-12 from the field — including a run of four 3-pointers on five possessions — and 7-of-10 from the line. The Aggies took the lead, 83-82, on the final 3-pointer in that stretch by Jordan Lewis in transition.

The Greyhounds took the lead back immediately on a putback dunk by Arcaim Lallemand with 2:07 to play, but the team only managed four 3-point attempts the rest of the way.

Lallemand and Nick Brown both had 15 points, whiel Pullum had 14 and hit all eight of his free-throw attempts.

For Cameron, Lewis scored 14 points, while Kendall Scott had 12 and Zachary Dumas 10.
