Texans clobber Western Nebraska 102-49
 November 7, 2012

LEVELLAND - Kendahl Amerson scored a game high 22 points to lead four Texan players in double figures as the No. 1 ranked South Plains College Texans clobbered Western Nebraska College 102-49 in front of a rowdy crowd in the Texans home opener at the Texan Dome.

South Plains kept the Cougars off balance the entire game, holding Western Nebraska to less than half of the 101 points they had averaged through their first two games of the season.

Sophomore Yanick Moreira made a case as the top player in the NJCAA, scoring 19 points on 9-of-16 shooting, grabbing eight rebounds, and blocking three shots in only 20-minutes of playing time.

Amerson - a 6-foot-3 guard from Detroit, Mich., - made 6-of-10 shots from beyond the three-point arc and 8-of-13 overall to lead all scorers and also had eight rebounds. 

Freshmen Michael Karena and Roderick Lawrence scored 12 and 11 points each, respectively. 

As a team, South Plains made 36-of-73 (.493) shots and 12-of-26 (.462) from downtown and outrebounded their opponents 52-35.

The Texans will return to the court when they host the Texan Classic Nov. 9-10 at the Texan Dome.  South Plains will go for their 40th consecutive win dating back to last season when they host Northeastern Colorado at 5 p.m on Friday before taking on North Lake College Saturday at 3 p.m.
