Tarleton State’s women’s basketball team reached its highest ranking in the USA Today/ESPN Division II Coaches Poll this week, coming in at 15th in the latest edition.

The TexAnns (11-1, 2-0 LSC) have opened Lone Star Conference play with two consecutive wins.

Tarleton travels to Texas A&M-Kingsville at 1 p.m. Saturday as three of its next four games are away from Stephenville.

“It’s a long road and we start it off at a tough place to play,” Tarleton State coach Ronnie Hearne said. “We are definitely going to have to be ready to play.”

The TexAnns have won eight straight, the third-longest streak during Hearne’s tenure.

“I think they could go anywhere,” Hearne said. “I have a lot of confidence in this team.”

TSU coach honored

Tarleton State men’s basketball coach Lonn Reisman was named the Division II Bulletin/Schelde Coach of the Month for December.

Reisman’s Texans (12-0, 1-0 LSC) were 4-0 in the month. They opened Lone Star Conference play with a 26-point win over Angelo State (10-3, 0-1 LSC) on Wednesday night in Stephenville.

Chuck Guy led the No. 9 Texans with 24 points. Tashawn Mabry added 13 off the bench.

Tarleton is at Texas A&M-Kingsville at 3 p.m. Saturday and at Midwestern State at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Wesleyan gets SAC win

After opening Sooner Athletic Conference play 0-2, the Texas Wesleyan men’s basketball team earned its first league win over No. 7 John Brown University in overtime on Saturday.

The Rams (7-5, 1-2 SAC) outscored the Eagles 15-7 in the overtime period to edge John Brown 99-91.
