Former UMHB women’s basketball head coach Mark Morefield has been tabbed to lead the Dallas Christian College women’s basketball program, per a press release from DCC.
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.
BELTON- In an oddly similar sequence of events to the first time UMHB and Concordia (TX) met on the court this season, Saturday’s matchup saw two competitive halves, with UMHB leading by a narrow margin at halftime, before pulling out a victory in the second half.
BELTON- In a battle between the top two teams in the American Southwest Conference women’s basketball title race on Thursday night, Hardin-Simmons proved itself to be the better team on this particular evening.
RICHARDSON, Texas- With 3:20 left in Saturday’s ASC duel at UT-Dallas, the 24th-ranked UMHB women’s basketball team trailed by three, 49-46. For head coach Mark Morefield, it brought back an all-too-familiar feeling dating back to the Dec. 20 loss to Puget Sound.
CLARKSVILLE, Arkansas- The opening minutes of No. 24 UMHB’s return to conference play on Thursday night were less than convincing. But with an improved intensity on the defensive end over the final two quarters, the Crusaders had little trouble pulling away.
SAN ANTONIO- For the second straight contest, the UMHB women’s basketball team struggled out of the gate.
On Saturday, a strong second half made up for the poor first quarter performance. But on Tuesday night, on the road at third-ranked Trinity (TX), no amount of aggressive defense or key second-half shooting could overcome what was at one point in the first-quarter, a 20-point deficit.
KERRVILLE, Texas- It had been three years since Catherine Kaiser had taken the floor in her hometown. But on Wednesday night, the UMHB center was back at home, both figuratively, and literally.
BELTON- You can practice as much as you want against your own teammates. But when matched up against an opponent, with officials on the court, and in uniform, the true test comes about.
BELTON- There was nothing but silence inside the UMHB locker room. And yet, everyone had the same thought.
This was not the way it was supposed to go, ending the regular season with a loss on senior day to a rival that broke a 20-game win streak and perfect conference record. The emotions from the Crusaders postgame were that of a season-ending defeat, rather than a regular-season meeting.
