Feb 27, 2003
NACOGDOCHES, Texas -- The Lumberjacks of Stephen F. Austin posted the 18th win of the season Thursday night with an impressive 76-45 win over UT-San Antonio. The win moved the `Jacks to 14-3 in Southland Conference play, and into a tie in the loss column with Sam Houston following Sam Houston's overtime loss to UL-Monroe Thursday night, in Monroe.
Taylor Moore came within a rebound of posting his first career double-double as he led the Lumberjacks with 12 points and also led the team with nine rebounds. Moore played 26 minutes against the Roadrunners after Percy Green went to the bench with two fouls early in the first half. Green also left the game with just under six minutes to play after injuring an ankle. Moore took advantage of the opportunity in posting his career highs in both points and rebounds.
The SLC's leading scorer, LeRoy Hurd was held to only four points in 32 minutes of action. He did post a game high 10 rebounds for UTSA. Robert Ivy was the only Roadrunner to break into double digits with 10 points off the bench.
SFA ended the game shooting .533 (32-60) from the field and shot an even .400 (4-10) from beyond the three point arc. UTSA shot only 28.6 percent from the field in the first half and ended the night shooting only 30.6 percent (15-49) from the floor. The Roadrunners were only 3-22 (.136) on three point attempts in the game.
The `Jacks took the lead with 17:36 to go in the first half on a pair of free throws from Percy Green and was never challenged after building a 24-9 lead midway through the half. The `Jacks stretched the lead to as much as 33 points in the second half before cruising to the 31 point lead.
SFA takes its final regular season road trip Saturday as they travel to San Marcos to take on Southwest Texas. Game time is set for 8:00 p.m.
