Lamar's Game Notes
UTSA's Game Notes
BEAUMONT, Texas - The Lamar Lady Cardinals, riding high after their 94-60 win over Our Lady of the Lake on Monday, look to carry that momentum into Thursday's non-conference game at UTSA. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
"I definitely saw some good things, but there are definitely some things we have to work on," said Lamar coach Robin Harmony, who picked up her first win as Lamar's bench boss in the victory over the Saints. "We can score, but I know we can definitely play better defense."

Henderson's heroics lift Lamar
Jasmin Henderson's 3-pointer with less than 10 seconds remaining lifted the Lamar University women's basketball team to a 54-51 win over host UTSA in a Southland Conference game Saturday afternoon.
Lamar (1-1) has been deadly from 3-point range in its first two games, connecting on 36.8 percent (21-of-57) of its shots from downtown. Shauna Long is 11-of-16 (68.8 percent) from beyond the arc this season.
"Shauna never misses in practice," Harmony said. She's definitely a weapon."
Dominique Edwards leads Lamar in scoring at 20.0 points per game. Edwards also leads the Lady Cardinals in rebounding with 11 boards per contest.
UTSA (0-1), a member of Conference USA, dropped a 63-42 decision at Texas in its season opener. Tesha Smith led the Roadrunners with 10 points in that game.
Thursday's game will be the 33rd meeting between the two programs, with each team having won 16 times. The teams last met on Feb. 4, 2012, with Lamar posting a 54-51 road victory in the Roadrunners' final season as a member of the Southland Conference.
UTSA is the first of two consecutive games Lamar plays against Conference USA schools. The Lady Cardinals host Tulsa at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Montagne Center.
