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

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 71, Abilene Christian - 67. I was very proud of us in this one as we only lost by 4 but went 8-16 from the free throw line and we allowed 17 offensive rebounds. We won the turnover margin +5 (9 to 14) which helped us keep it close. Chung McLin had 21 points and 5 assists while Virgil Yager had 14 points. In his first game Lesley Franklin had 6 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists.

Maryland-Eastern Shore (1-0) vs. Abilene Christian (0-1)

Final Score: Maryland-Eastern Shore - 61, Abilene Christian - 76. We were +7 in turnover margin (12 to 19) and were able to pull out a comfortable victory despite going 24-37 from the free throw line. So far we look much more competent than last year. I think I have failed to realize that even though we have gotten better the teams around us have gotten better as well. Robert Smith had 25 points and Virgil Yager had 11 before leaving with a pulled groin which will cause him to be day-to-day. Mark Gagne left with a sprained wrist and will be out for around 9 days. Douglas Arguello came up huge off the bench with a double-double! He had 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists. 7 of his rebounds were on the offensive glass. The bench had 25 points in this one and it was a true team effort.

Abilene Christian (1-1) vs. Bethune-Cookman (0-1)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 75, Bethune-Cookman - 84. We were -1 in the turnover margin (14 to 13) but it was ultimately free throw shooting that cost us as we went 15-21 (71%) and shot 27% from 3 while they shot 35%. Chung McLin had 18 points and 4 assists. Mark Gagne played through his injury to score 15 points and 4 assists.

Abilene Christian (1-2) vs. Bryant (0-2)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 62, Bryant - 73.

Recruiting News

We have two commitments already! SF Sancho Pastor from Clyde, Texas and SG Joseph Hill from Stephensville, Texas. Pastor is a 2 star recruit and #509 overall who has the potential to be a great inside scorer but isn't great on the defensive side of things. Hill is a 3 star recruit and #317 overall. He is a great get and although he doesn't fit a huge position of need he is going to be a great scorer and defender. He is best when the ball is in his hand only when he's shooting as he is an awful ball-handler.
