Don't Look Up!
- Aug 26, 2011
I'm going to have some fun today. At 11 I'll be having a root canal.
Or not. Lamar over A&M 74-68.A&M still down to Lamar 53-45 in the 3rd Qtr. So far this season, Lamar has wins over Louisiana, McMurry, Louisiana College and Le Tourneau. A win over A&M would be quite the resume builder.
Somehow A&M will figure out a way to avoid this embarrassment.
Thanks for sharing...just looked her up. She has a shot to break the all time record for steals if she slightly ups her season rate. She's up to 492 (career record is 624) and she should have at least 23-24 more games to play. She'd need to average 5.5/game if they play 24 games, or 4.9 if they play 27.This is a shocker for me, even with Carter sitting. MSU played Lamar earlier this year and won by 51.
I have no information on the Howard and Williams transfers, but it certainly could be a major situation with Carter. She really hurt her team today.
Lamar does have a very impressive guard in Barrs. She gave the quick State guards plenty of trouble early. From their website...

Glad you were interested. In the postgame presser Vic was effusive in his praise for her. Said she had a great chance to set the career NCAA record for steals. Her numbers will surely go up in conference play. Incredible win for that school shouldn't be overlooked.Thanks for sharing...just looked her up.
