Four Chaps Post Double Figures to Help Defeat St. Gregory's 73-53

SHAWNEE, Okla. (January 17, 2009) - The Lubbock Christian University Chaparrals used a balanced offense that shot 54.9% in the game and produced four double-digit scorers en route to a 73-53 win over St. Gregory's University Saturday afternoon at Wood Field House.

LCU trailed at the start, but then received a 20-2 run and 62.5% shooting in the half (15/24) to take a 42-20 halftime lead.  Kenny Hewitt had 14 points and five rebounds in the opening half for LCU.  He was unfortunately held scoreless the rest of the way.

The Chaps took as much as a 27-point lead in the second half (50-23) before Josh Coulter got hot and scored nine points in the second half, finishing the game with 20 points to lead SGU. An 18-9 SGU run cut the score to 63-46, but it would be as close as SGU would get.  LCU relied on Tommy Lane and Jacob Klockenga in the second half for their offense.  Klockenga tallied 12 points in the half and finished with a team-high 15 points.  Lane contributed eight of his 14 points in the half.  Al Duvall also finished in double figures with ten points for LCU.

Defensively, LCU dominated the inside play.  Benoit Bekono had a game-high 11 rebounds and two blocks.  The Chaps out-rebounded the Cavaliers 43-23 in the game with nine offensive rebounds.  LCU held St. Gregory's to just 32.1% shooting from the field (17-of-53).

The win not only improves LCU to 9-6 overall and 4-5 in Sooner Athletic Conference play, but it gives LCU their second conference road win.  The Chaps obtained just one conference road win last season.  SGU drops to 2-16 and 1-8 on the season.  LCU returns home and will host Northwestern Oklahoma State University Thursday.

    Brazil fans have cheered their team in the first and only meeting with players before they travel to the World Cup in Russia, but many others also complained about the squad's lack of contact with local supporters.
