After a week of voting, it is time to announce True To The Cru’s Basketball Players of the Year, which were voted on both by the media and the general public at the conclusion of phenomenal seasons for both the UMHB men’s and women’s basketball teams, who each went deep in the NCAA Tournament, making the tournament in the same year for the first time in school history.
BELTON- Reaching unprecedented success in the same season, three standouts from the UMHB men’s and women’s basketball teams were recognized nationally on Tuesday morning by D3hoops.com, named to the 2022 All-Region teams.
BELTON- With 6:56 left to play in Saturday night’s second round NCAA Tournament duel with Trinity (TX), Ty Prince took three long strides then leapt off the floor, his right hand outstretched.
ALPINE- Over the last few weeks, Sul Ross State has become known for second-half comebacks. And on Saturday afternoon, true to form, the Lobos mounted a second-half run. But UMHB was ready for it, and the 16th-ranked Crusaders came away from their final regular season road contest with a 78-74 victory.
LONGVIEW- Josiah Johnson connected on just one three-pointer Monday night.
But it proved to be the biggest shot of the day, as the junior guard dodged two defenders and fired a long three at the buzzer, winning the critical ASC showdown for the UMHB men’s basketball team, ranked No. 16 in the nation.
RICHARDSON- UMHB guard Josiah Johnson hit the career 1,000-point mark, and the Crusader men’s basketball team maintained its position as the first-place team in the ASC standings on Sunday evening, rolling to an 85-72 victory over UT-Dallas.
