Lumberjacks Set To Face High Point
Nov. 30, 2013
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin closed the month of November with a 5-2 record and 3-1 mark in the First Bank and Trust Roundball Showcase. The Lumberjacks, coming off a 60-55 win over UNC-Wilmington, will now play their second game in the state of North Carolina, taking on High Point (3-2) Sunday, Dec. 1, at 1:00 p.m. inside the Willis Athletic and Convocation Center. The Sunday showdown will be the second-ever meeting between the two schools, having first met in the 2011-12 season as part of the ESPN BracketBusters. SFA won 69-62 over the Panthers in Nacogdoches (Feb. 2).
High Point comes into Sunday's matchup on a two-game winning streak after beating Wofford, 66-56, last Sunday. HPU got out to an 11-2 lead and never lost it, as redshirt-sophomore John Brown led all scorers with 22 points on 10-for-15 shooting in 24 minutes of action. Before WC, the Panthers knocked off William & Mary 80-69 in the Millis Center.

Parker was one of three SFA players to shoot in double-figures on the night, joined by guards Desmond Haymon (12) and Thomas Walkup (10).
