Texans continue to roll, drop North Lake 94-51
 November 11, 2012

LEVELLAND – The South Plains College Texans continued their dominance over opponents with another big win Saturday afternoon in the Texan Dome, destroying North Lake College 94-51.

South Plains (5-0) entered the game having won their last three by an average of 53 points.

It wasn’t an entirely pretty game, though, as a slight lapse allowed North Lake to cut into the Texans 20-8 deficit early in the first half.  The Blazers pulled to within five points on three occasions before South Plains ended the half with a 12-2 run, taking a 15 point lead into the locker room.

The team that came out in the second half looked more like the Texans have all season long as South Plains scored the first 17 points of the half to remove any drama of a possible comeback by the Blazers.

Sophomore Yanick Moreira once again led the Texans in scoring with 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting.  Devonte Smith had 15 points and seven assists, while only turning the ball over twice.  Kendahl Amerson and Brandon Neel each contributed with 13 and 11 points, respectively, and RyanMartin collected a season high 13 rebounds.

South Plains will now turn their attention to Tuesday’s opponent, Temple College.  The Leopards are 4-0 on the season and have most recently defeated Tomball College, 139-86, and the East Texas Flyers, 136-70.

Texan head coach Steve Green has a slight edge over Temple since arriving at South Plains with a 9-8 record.  The last time the Texans traveled to Temple, the Leopards handed South Plains a 73-70 loss, though South Plains avenged the defeat 86-60 just 11 days later.

Tipoff for the Texans game versus Temple is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
