Wise got into the paint early for the Lions, scoring three consecutive buckets give the Lions back the lead with three minutes left in the quarter. The Aggies finished the quarter on a 10-1 run to take an 18-10 lead into the second quarter.

The Aggies continued to shoot well in the second quarter, pushing their lead back up to nine points at the midway mark of the quarter. The Lions struggled from the foul line in the quarter and were held scoreless for more than three minutes late in half. CU capitalized to take a double-digit lead late.

The Aggies continued their hot shooting from deep in the third quarter, pushing their lead to 14 points. The Lions continued to score, but the Aggies matched them point for point, keeping their lead at 14 through much of the quarter. Davis hit a late basket, plus drew a foul, cutting the deficit to 62-50 at the end of the third quarter.

The Lions cut the Aggie lead to five points early in the fourth quarter, starting the quarter on a 9-2 run. Ransom hit a jumper, and Wise also hit a shot inside. Ransom hit a three to cut the lead to five. Price then hit a layup on a fast break to cut the Aggie lead to just three points with seven minutes left. The Aggies brought their lead back up to five before Gay hit a bucket in the lane to bring the edge down to three again. Gay hit another jumper with four minutes left to tie the game at 70 apiece.

The Aggies scored the next two buckets before a three from Davis brought the lead down to one point with two minutes to play. After a Cameron free throw, Gay hit another jumper to tie the game again. Gay caught fire late in the game to help push the Lions along. Three late Lion free throws tied the game at 80-all with 38 seconds left. After a quick Cameron bucket, Wise drew a foul to again tie the game, this time at 82. The Lions drew an offensive foul with eight seconds left and had the chance to win the game, but a three-hit off the rim and the game went into overtime.

Gay hit an early bucket in overtime to give the Lions their first lead since the first quarter. Cameron then took the lead on a jumper of their own. Trailing by two, it was Davis who found space, knocking in the triple to give the Lions back the lead. The Lions would not trail again in the game. Gay continued her strong push late, hitting two free throws. The Aggies cut the Lion lead to one point and after a missed Lion shot, the Aggies once again had the ball with a chance to gain the lead. Wise came up with a steal, and she was fouled, making both foul shots. The Aggies missed their final shot, and the Lions ran out the clock.

Wise earns First-Team nod, and three Lions win All-Conference honors.

FRISCO– The Texas A&M University-Commerce women’s basketball team picked up multiple awards at the annual Lone Star Conference Championship Banquet on Wednesday.

Brianna Wise was named First Team All-LSC, the eighth player in program history to receive the distinction and the first since the 2013-14 season. They named Artaejah Gay Second Team All-LSC, and Princess Davis was named Third Team All-LSC.

Wise– a senior from Desoto– was a scoring threat night in and night out for the Lions and was a jack-of-all-trades on the defensive end. She played in all 28 games for the Lions, taking on the role as sixth-man for much of the season. She finished the regular season as the second-leading scorer in the conference, averaging 16.4 points per game. She upped her average to 18.0 points per game in conference games, which tied for the best in the league. She was named LSC Offensive Player of the Week three times during the season, the only player in the league to do so. She had 12 games with 20 points or more and scored in double figures in 20 different games, including a career-high 30 against Eastern New Mexico, where she set a school record with 19 free throws made.

Wise shot 42 percent from the field, 36 percent from three and 78 percent from the free throw line. She got to the line 190 times during the season and made 148 free throws, which was the seventh most in Division II this season and the third most in a single season in program history.

She finished in the top 10 in the LSC in blocks and the top 20 in steals. It is the second All-LSC award for Wise in her A&M-Commerce career.

Gay– a senior from Cedar Hill– was sixth in the LSC and second on the team in scoring, averaging 14.3 points per game to go along with 5.7 rebounds per contest. She was third in the LSC in field goal percentage, shooting 44 percent from the field. She scored in double figures in 19 of her 24 games played and had two double-doubles. Gay moved into third place in school history in scoring and field goals made and fourth in blocked shots. She is also in the top 10 in program history in rebounds, minutes and games played. It is the second consecutive year they named her Second Team All-LSC, and it is the third All-Conference selection of her career.

Davis– a redshirt junior from Shreveport, La.– responded with an injury-shortened the 2016-17 season to once again command the Lion offense and defense. She played in and started all 28 regular season games for the Lions. Davis finished tied for third in the LSC in assists and was sixth in minutes played per game. She was also 11th in scoring, averaging a career-high 12.4 points per game. Davis scored in double figures 15 times, including a career-high 31 points against Cameron. She also had eight games with at least five assists. She also ranked 10th in the LSC in steals. Davis moved into third place in program history in assists and games started and reached the 2,500-minute mark of her career. It is the second All-Conference selection of her career.

Reid named LSC Newcomer of the Year and first-team all-LSC; Rooks earns second-team all-LSC.

FRISCO – The Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s basketball team had two student-athletes with All-Lone Star Conference honors at the league’s annual basketball awards banquet Wednesday.

Reggie Reid earned first-team All-LSC honors and was named the league’s Newcomer of the Year, while Willie Rooks earned second-team All-LSC honors.

Reid transferred to A&M-Commerce this season from Florida Gulf Coast and immediately made an impact on the landscape of the LSC, leading the Lions to the top 10 at one point in the season. He is the sixth Lion to win LSC Newcomer of the Year since they inaugurated the award in 2004.

He averaged 4.8 assists per game in LSC contests, which ranks second in the league and his 659 minutes played in LSC games leads the conference. His 35 points at Western New Mexico tied for the most points scored in an LSC game this season.

Rooks’ playmaking ability in his first season after transferring from Coastal Bend College earned his all-conference accolade. His 35 points in the stunning comeback effort at West Texas A&M tied with Reid for the most points scored in an LSC game this season.

Rooks ranks second in the conference in three-point shooting percentage at 38.8 percent and sixth in the league in scoring at 16.0 points per game. He averaged 16.4 points per game in LSC play, making 2.9 three-pointers per game.

Mariah Jameyson named LSC Hitter of the Week after monster performances.

RICHARDSON– The Lone Star Conference named Texas A&M University-Commerce catcher Mariah Jameyson Hitter of the Week, as announced Tuesday by the conference office. It is the third time in four weeks a Lion has won the award.

Jameyson– a senior from Seattle, Wash.– was a hitting machine last week for the Lions, hitting .833 with a .909 on-base percentage and a 2.333 slugging percentage. She had 10 RBIs and 14 total bases on five hits. She tied an LSC record with three home runs in the Lions’ first win over Missouri Southern State, driving in eight runs in the contest, including a walk-off grand slam. In her next two games, pitchers tried to avoid Jameyson. She still had an RBI single in each of the final two games of the series and drew five walks. She reached base on 10 of her 11 plate appearances. With her three homers, she became the all-time leader in home runs in program history. Jameyson is sixth in the LSC in hitting percentage, seventh in homers and is leading the LSC in RBIs per game.

Jameyson and the No. 25 Lions are 13-1 so far this season and are riding a 10-game winning streak, which ties the longest streak in school history. The Lions are 3-0 in conference play and will next face conference foe Cameron on the road in a three-game series. The teams will play in a single game on Friday at 2:00 p.m. and then a double-header on Saturday beginning at 1:00 p.m. All games will be at McMahon Field in Lawton, Okla.
