Before getting into the winners of our first-ever Player of the Year awards, it is important to note that each of these candidates was deserving of the honor, and that we have a high level of respect for each of them. It takes an entire team to win games as the Crusaders did this past season, and each and every one of them played a role in that success.
After a successful year that saw both programs rise to new heights, it is time to decide True To The Cru’s Players of the Year. The honors will be decided by both the fans and local media, with the fans making up 75 percent of the vote, and the media deciding 25 percent of the vote.

ALPINE, Texas- UMHB women’s basketball head coach Mark Morefield always had a feeling he and his team would see ETBU again this season. But the way things have played out seems to have been written up for television.
BELTON, Texas- The UMHB women’s basketball team fell to Howard Payne in the regular season finale on Saturday by a score of 77-75. Check out some great photos of the action!
ABILENE, Texas- Through it all; the four-game losing skid, the challenges in closing out games, and the youth of the team, UMHB women’s basketball head coach Mark Morefield always saw Wednesday’s performance on the horizon for the Cru.
