Game Notes

First tip: The Aggie women are looking to snap a two game skid against Angelo State on Wednesday to conclude CU’s three game home stand. Meanwhile, the Rambelles are on a three game winning streak that includes a 69-64 upset over No. 1 West Texas A&M. Overall, the Aggies are number-2 in the LSC in three-point percentage (36.3%), and fourth in field goal percentage (39.9%). Dayla Threatt leads the Aggie offense with 12.9 points per game, which is third best in the league, and pulls down 5.7 boards per game.
 
Last time out: Cameron couldn’t recover from a slow start to drop their second game in a row on Wednesday evening 63-56 to Texas A&M-Commerce.  The Aggies trailed for the majority of the contest and pulled within a possession with runs in the final two quarters but never pulled ahead of the Lions.

Dayla Threatt led the Aggies with 16 points and DJ Vallier added 12.  As a team Cameron shot 36.2% (21-58) but struggled at the arc by going 6-for-21 against the Lions. Savanna James played seven minutes but led the Aggies with six boards; CU would have 37 overall but trailed A&M-Commerce by three. 

Cameron committed ten turnovers in the first quarter, but they would commit only eight the rest of the night.   The Lions equaled CU’s turnover total, but it would be the Aggies picking up 22 points, seven more than A&M-Commerce.  Brittany Hill led the Ags with four steals and added nine points.

About Angelo State: Despite opening conference play with a loss to Tarleton State, the Belles are on a three game winning streak following victories over Texas A&M-Commerce and Eastern New Mexico in addition to a 69-64 upset over No. 1 West Texas A&M last Wednesday. Brea Mitchell was named the Lone Star Conference Offensive Player of the Week as she led ASU with 19 points and played all 40 minutes against WT and followed up with 13 points and eight rebounds against ENMU. As a team the Belles are shooting 44% from the field, 36% behind the arc (6.9 per game), and 75% at the line. Taylor Dorsey leads the league in scoring with 17.1 ppg. The Belles are 10-4 overall and 3-1 in the LSC.
 
CU vs. ASU Series: The Aggies have won their last three meetings with Angelo State but trail the overall series 20-24.  In the Aggies Gym, Cameron holds a slight 11-10 edge over the Rambelles and last season in Lawton the Aggies rolled past ASU 79-54 leading from horn-to-horn.  This will the 13th meeting with Angelo State for Coach Tom Webb who is 5-7 against the Rambelles.
