No. 7 Bears Upend No. 6 Islanders to Live Another Day

first_imgDefense has been the key to UCA’s revival and it continued on Wednesday as the Bears allowed fewer than 65 points for the fifth time in their six-game run. After watching the Islanders (14-18) connect on three of their first four 3-point attempts in the first 3:02 of the contest, UCA clamped down on A&M-CC’s long-range attack, holding them to just 4-of-24 the remainder of the night. Box Score | Photo GalleryKATY, Texas — After losing seven straight and nearly capsizing their chances to return to the Southland Conference men’s basketball tournament, Central Arkansas’ recent run has its title hopes afloat for at least one more day. UCA put together a key run capped off by a pair of free throws from Hayden Koval (15 points, 11 rebounds) that stretched the lead to 51-41 at the 8:33 mark. A&M-CC would never get closer than nine points. The Islanders relied on the shooting of guard Jashawn Talton in the first half. Talton scored 17 of the team’s 25 first half points, going 6-for-9 from the field while his teammates managed only three field goals in 20 attempts. However, UCA’s locker room adjustments resulted in Talton going scoreless after intermission – a critical blow to A&M-CC’s hopes of closing the deficit. Thatch Unruh scored 21 points while an aggressive Bears defense limited Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to just 33.9 percent from the field on their way to a 73-53 win over the Islanders in an opening round game at Merrell Center on Wednesday night. The victory pushes seventh-seed UCA (14-18) to a 7:30 p.m. date against third-seed Southeastern Louisiana on Thursday.MBB: @UCAMBB Unruh hits one from waaaaaaaay downtown. @islandersmbb Clark counters with jam.

How long we can do that, I don’t know, but right now with the enthusiasm and the effort that the guys are putting in, I wouldn’t think they’re going to have much of a letdown.” Still, the Islanders were able to pull within 42-38 when South hit a pair of free throws with 12:51 remaining. It would be as close as they would get as the flash of offensive production they showed early in the second half faded away.MBB: @UCAMBB with the exclamation point courtesy of Mondesir.

Combined, the pair hit on just three of 20 shots, including 1-for-10 from 3-point range.“We weren’t locked in defensively as we needed to be,” said Islanders’ coach Willis Wilson. “There were just situations where the ball just did not bounce our way. We had some shots that went in and out. We had a couple of balls that we struggled to get the handle on. Things just kind of escalated.”last_img read more


Vancouver woman involved in fatal Oregon crash

first_imgA Vancouver woman was identified as the driver of a fatal crash that was discovered at least 12 hours later on the Oregon Coast. A hitchhiker along Highway 101 just north of Cannon Beach, Ore. heard cries for help and spotted a crashed car 40 feet down a heavily wooded embankment Sunday evening, according to Oregon State Police. Emergency crews were notified about 8:30 p.m., and responded to find Gabriela Rayon, 21, of Vancouver seriously injured and her passenger, Ruth A. Delgado, 23, of Los Angeles, deceased. Authorities said that Rayon was driving a 2004 Chevrolet four-door south on Highway 101 when for an unconfirmed reason the car left the roadway and went down an embankment. The passenger side of the car struck a tree and the vehicle then came to rest on the ground in heavy brush among the trees and was not visible from the roadway. The crash apparently occurred at least 12 hours prior to the hitchhiker spotting the car, according to state patrol. Rayon was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital in Astoria but was later transferred to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland where she is listed in fair condition. Oregon State Patrol is continuing its investigation into the crash.last_img read more
