Lumberjack Game Notes: at UT-Arlington
Jan. 20, 2012
Stephen F. Austin at UT-Arlington
GAME TIME: The `Jacks suffered their first loss of the conference season vs UTSA, but have a chance to make big noise in the Southland when it takes on the league's lone remaining unbeaten squad, UT-Arlington, on Saturday in the final game at legendary Texas Hall.
A CAREER TO REMEMBER: Senior Jereal Scott is the lone member of SFA's 2008 NCAA Tournament team on the roster, and as he reaches the end of his Lumberjack career it is easy to see that his name will be sprinkled throughout the record book when he is done. Scott is approaching 1,100 points for his career and if he remains on his current pace will finish up in the top 5 all-time scorers in Division I history at SFA. He also needs just 41 more made free throws to become the 11th all-time at SFA with 300 for his career, a mark that he should reach by season's end.
CLAMPING DOWN: SFA returned to William R. Johnson Coliseum on Dec. 30 to take a 57-point win over UT-Tyler, holding the Patriots to just 36 points in the victory. The 36 points was the lowest for a Lumberjack opponent since SFA held ULM to 36 points last season, a mark that is the second-lowest defensive showing in the Danny Kaspar era and that was matched less than 10 days later when SFA held Southeastern Louisiana to just 36 points as well. The lowest in the era was when SFA held Huston-Tillotson to just 33 points during the 2007-08 season.
