"I was really proud of how hard the girls played today," MSU coach Noel Johnson said. "Transition was the key for us today and we were really able to push the tempo."

The Mustangs hit the lanes to rack up 25 fast-break points while dishing out 20 assists of 38 field goals. MSU finished the game shooting 54.3 percent from the field.

It was the first time the Mustangs hit the century mark since drilling Tarleton State 100-83 in last season's Lone Star Conference Postseason Tournament semifinals in Allen.

Junior forward Andrea Carter narrowly missed her fourth consecutive 20-point performance finishing with 19 points and nine rebounds, while junior guard Shatoia Gober notched her second double-double of the season with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Each of MSU's guards piled up assists as Dianna Jones led the way with six points and seven assists, while Degelia and Gober each dished out five helpers.

The bench got in on the scoring act as Lisa Hampton, Shambreka Jones and Lynn Lumpkin-Boozer each had eight points as the Mustangs finished with 32 points from their subs.

Devin Oliver splashed in 25 points to lead Texas A&M-Commerce, while Breanna Harris and Ashlee Jackson had 10 points each. The Lions fell to 4-16 on the season and to 3-8 in Lone Star Conference.

Midwestern State (14-8, 6-5) takes on West Texas A&M Wednesday night at D.L. Ligon Coliseum. Tipoff is set for 5:30 p.m.
