Wednesday night the Wildcats continued their winning streak with a tight victory against West Texas A&M. The team won 59-58; this was the first win at Canyon since the ’97-98 season.
The ‘Cats are off to a surprisingly fast start in the season, ranking 4-1 overall and 1-0 in conference, with the first LoneStar Conference game being against WT.
To add to their momentum, together the team shot their season best of 55.8 percent (24 of 43) with 16 points from senior Center Steven Werner and 15 points each from senior guards Eric Lawton and Elliot Lloyd.
The team was excited to welcome back Senior Forward Dosh Simms as he tallied six rebounds in his first game of the season.
While Wednesday night was a time of celebration for a long overdue victory against the Buffaloes, it was also a time of remembrance for the heart of ACU sports: 10-year-old Rex Fleming, who died Sunday night after a two year battle with brain cancer.
As prayers continue to go up for the Fleming family, the Wildcats have to prepare to match up against Eastern New Mexico, this Saturday at 4 p.m. in Moody Coliseum.
