RiverHawks fall flat at Tarleton State

NSU basketball roundup


NSU men stay perfect

ALVA — Jermaine Bransford scored a career-high 31 points and Bryton Hobbs tossed in 23 points as the Northeastern State men’s basketball team remained unbeaten after polishing off Northwestern Oklahoma State, 83-77, at Percefull Fieldhouse on Saturday.

The RiverHawks (5-0) pulled off a season sweep of Northwest Oklahoma State due in large part to 58.7 percent (27 of 46) shooting from the floor and 24 of 26 (92.3 percent) on free-throw attempts. Bransford finished 10 of 15 from the field and 11 of 12 from the foul line, while Hobbs was perfect at the charity stripe (on eight attempts) and 7 of 9 from the floor.

The game featured eight ties and 10 lead changes.

The RiverHawks, though, led for good after the game was tied at 65-65 with 5:55 left. NSU went ahead on a jumper by Bransford, which sparked a 18-12 run for NSU to end the game.

Northwestern Oklahoma State was led by Daryl Glover’s 22 points on 8 of 12 shooting. Jonathan Freemyer contributed 21 points, and Marshell Bell chipped in with 13 off the bench.

NSU’s next game will be Thursday night at Harding at 7:30 p.m.
