About the Cru: Mark Morefield’s squad continued holding firm to the ASC standings lead, taking down Concordia 66-59 on Monday night, even with a number of key contributors unavailable. The Crusaders have now won eight straight, and are “playing as one”, according to Morefield, with the team’s exceptional ball movement offensively creating mid-range shooting opportunities. In 11 starts, forward Ashley Faux has done a little bit of everything, leading the team in scoring (11.3 PPG), tallying 3.2 rebounds per game, and dishing out 17 assists. 

Sul Ross State (6-6,2-5 ASC)

Head Coach: Katie Novak (5th Season)

About the Lobos: SRSU has beaten Howard Payne twice on the year, but is still searching for a conference win over another opponent, entering Thursday’s matchup at 2-5 in ASC play. The Lobos share one common non-conference opponent with UMHB in Schreiner, whom they lost to 77-74 in the ASC/SCAC crossover in late November. Despite playing with a roster that features just five forwards and centers and nobody over 6’0, SRSU plays solid defense, ranking fourth in the ASC in steals (11.5/game), and fifth in fewest points allowed per game (62.5).
