BELTON-Blake Arbogast has seen his East Texas Baptist team mature greatly over the course of this season. Earlier in the year, his squad may not have pulled out a win in a knock-down, drag-out road duel. The experience level was not necessarily there. But with just four weeks left in the regular season, the Tigers played with poise on Thursday night, taking down No. 22 UMHB in a back-and-forth battle, 67-61.
BELTON- Jaycie Brisco has been competing her whole life. And she has never turned down a challenge.
That is to be expected when you grow up with a twin brother, go to a 2A high school, and play alongside the same group for four years. Naturally, a competitive edge will start to build.
BELTON-Mark Morefield is out as the head coach of the UMHB women’s basketball program, as was reported by multiple news outlets Thursday afternoon, and confirmed by True To The Cru via a UMHB spokesperson.
