LEVELLAND – Andre Spight had his best shooting night of the year, scoring 24 points while making 9-of-13 shots from the field and the NJCAA No. 1-ranked South Plains College Texans ran away from Midland College Thursday night as they cruised to a 94-50 victory over the Chaparrals.

In addition to Spight’s outburst, the Texans got 18 from Roderick Lawrence and Cedrick McAfee chipped in with 15.  Billydee Williams added 11 as the Texans had four players scoring in double digits. 

South Plains (20-1, 7-0 WJCAC) raced out to a 14-point lead by the midway point of the first half and never looked back as they took a 27-point advantage to the locker room.

In the second half, the Texans led by as many as 52 before settling for the 44-point victory.

South Plains made 36-of-64 (.563) shots from the field and outrebounded the Chaparrals 32-21.
