UMass Lowell (0-0) vs. Abilene Christian (0-0)

Final Score: UMass Lowell - 76, Abilene Christian - 54. I know this was a blowout but we looked a lot better than last season. Celso Sanz left with patellar tendinitis and will miss 26 days, him being gone hurt. The difference in this game was UMass Lowell hitting 6 threes and us making zero. Robert Smith had 13 points and 2 rebounds. Douglas Arguello had 6 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists. Chung McLin had 4 points, 1 rebound, and 2 assists. Mark Gagne had 5 points, 1 rebound, and 3 assists. All four of those were players having their debut. We also had 8 steals including 4 by Mark Gagne. The bench had 21 points in this one showing how much they have improved.

Abilene Christian (0-1) vs. North Dakota (0-1)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 59, North Dakota - 76. At halftime we had committed 9 turnovers and North Dakota had committed zero. Thankfully we were only down 33-30 at the half after that turnover ratio. Again we looked really good in this one but in the second half North Dakota was in the bonus under 5 minutes in and took 32 free throws. They only made 18 of them otherwise this could have been a much bigger deficit. The turnover margin really killed us in this one. Chung McLin had 19 points, 1 rebound, and 3 assists. Virgil Yager had 10 points and 8 rebounds. The bench had 10 points in this one highlighted by 8 from Mark Gagne.

Abilene Christian (0-2) vs. UT-Rio Grande Valley (0-1)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 57, UT-Rio Grande Valley - 60. We looked a lot better than our opposition in this one but the fouls and free throw disparity really hurt us again. Robert Smith had 15 points and 5 rebounds while Douglas Arguello and Chung McLin each had 10 points. The starting lineup and our 6th man combined for 23 fouls.

November 26, 1940

Grand Canyon (0-4) vs. Abilene Christian (0-3)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 59, Abilene Christian - 69. We only committed 6 turnovers in this one and we hit 9 threes! Chung McLin had 18 points and 6 assists (which ties for the most in program history). Robert Smith had 13 points and 5 rebounds and Virgil Yager had 10 rebounds. The bench had 17 points headlined by 10 from Nickolas Toy. This is the Abilene Christian team I am envisioning for our future. This season may have its ups and downs due to the inexperience of the underclassmen but I have faith in these players.
