Wednesday's WAC digest

It was the tale of two halves but Texas San Antonio won the initial one and it turned out to be four points better than Fresno State's in an 83-79 finish. Kevin Olekaibe had a poor shooting night, going 6-23. Jonathan Wills' 26 points (plus seven rebounds) led the Bulldogs. Plus, it's interesting to note that Daquan Brown played, totaling one minute of action.

Sean Duff reports.


Host TAM Corpus Christi proved to be three points better than Brady Jardine-less Utah State, 58-55, in a game that went into overtime. Morgan Grim posted a 20-12 double double while Brockeith Pane totaled 15 points but shot just 4-15.

Shawn Harrison, Tony Jones and The Sagebrush all offer game stories. From Shawn's comes Stew Morrill with an honest and direct quote: "This was not a good basketball team we played tonight ..."


Nevada's matchup with visiting Longwood was much closer than expected as the Wolf Pack won 80-78. Going 7-10 from long distance paced Malik Story's team-topping 28 points.

Chris Murray took in the game as did Joe Santoro.

Someone said the best things in life are free but some on the Wolf Pack roster clearly disagree as Chris explains.


San Jose State committed blasphemy in routing visiting Holy Names 109-71. James Kinney led the Spartans with both 17 points and nine assists -- SJSU athletics offers the details.


Hawaii hosted but fell to Eastern Washington 71-57 -- Dayton Morinaga fills in his readers.

Hawaii loses at home to Eastern Wash? The mighty Utah State Aggies lose on the road to CORPUS CRISTY? Nevada BARELY beats Longwood? Not good for the conference. NMSU is the best team right now. It would be nice for the rest of the conference to represent.
