The A&M-Commerce men's basketball team lost 80-51 to the Cameron University Aggies on Saturday, Jan. 29.

Junior Milton Garner led the Aggies in scoring with 18 points including 3-of-6 shooting from behind the arc. Sophomore forward Vinicius Telo had a 17 point game tonight.

Early on, it seemed like nothing could slow down the Aggies who held the Lions scoreless for the first 4:14 minutes of the game. Commerce got on the board with a layup by Desmond King at 15:46 to bring the game to 10-2.

The Aggies did not let up, running out to a 38-9 lead with 3:24 remaining on the back of a Garner trey. Garner added three more before halftime as the Aggies took their 30-point lead into the locker room.

The game also got chippy at times as the Lions were called for a total of three technical fouls throughout the game. It did not hurt the Aggies' rhythm as they connected of 27-of-53 (50.9 percent) from the field including 11-of-23 (47.8 percent) from behind the arc.

Commerce was unable to find any success from long range, going 1-of-13 (7.7 percent) from the three point range and were 19-of-52 (36.5 percent) from the field.


Cameron University beat A&M-Commerce in the women's basketball game on Saturday, Jan. 29.

Cameron jumped out to an early lead but the game was kept close by solid shooting in the paint by the Lions. Freshman Ali Brown provided the breakaway spark the Aggies need with a difficult layup at 11:15 to put the Aggies up 17-15.

The story of the second half was no different as the Lions never pulled within single digits. Hannah Merle provided the points to draw the margin to its thinnest, 12-points, with a layup at 8:47 to bring the scoreboard to 54-42.

Bianca Stevenson and Danielle Dixon led the Lions in scoring with 17 each. Stevenson was 6-of-9 from the floor while Dixon connected on 5-of-17. For the game, the Lions shot 29-percent (20-of-67) and were 50-percent (14-of-28) from the line.
