But he did not stop there.
CLARKSVILLE, Arkansas-Back into conference play on Thursday night, the UMHB men’s basketball team eclipsed the 100-point mark for the first time in a game this season.

BELTON, Texas- For the second night in a row, the No. 2-ranked UMHB men’s basketball team found itself in a hole in the blink of the eye.

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- 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.
