Second Half Production Carries LCU Over USW 109-70

A 64-point second half for the Lubbock Christian Chaparrals surged them to a 109-70 win over University of the Southwest Monday night at Rip Griffin Center. 

The game was tightly played in the first half with the lead exchanging hands on seven different occasions. Chris Cooper had 15 of his team high 20 points in the opening half for the Mustangs, and the team shot 56.5% in the half (13 of 23), but 14 turnovers by the Mustangs and an 8-1 run by the Chaps with under three minutes remaining led to the Chaps leading 45-35.  The Chaps shot 58.3% (21-of-36) in the second half and 9-for-17 (52.9%) from three-point range, as the Chaps out-scored USW 64-35 in the half. 

Kenny Hewitt was a point shy of matching his career high, as he was 5-for-7 on three-point attempts and 7-of-9 from the field for a game-high 21 points.  Tommy Lane had three of the team's 11 steals, and also provided 15 points.  Douglass Williams (14) and Al Duval (10) also reached double digits in offense.  Martin Ombok and Jacob Klockenga each co-led the team with seven rebounds, and the Chaps out-rebounded USW 43-34.  Thirteen different individuals factored into the scoring for LCU, with 65 points coming from the bench.  Nine different players netted three-point field goals for the Chaps, as they fired up a Rip Griffin Center record 40 attempts in the game.

The Chaps improve to 2-0 with the win.  The game was the first ever meeting against the inaugural USW squad.  The two teams meet again Monday in Hobbs, New Mexico to complete the home-and-home season series.
