Texans smack Northeastern, extend win streak to 40 games
 November 10, 2012

LEVELLAND – Sophomore Yanick Moreira recorded his second double-double of the season with 15 points and 12 rebounds, while playing just more than 21 minutes to help the South Plains College Texans to their 40th consecutive win, defeating Northeastern Colorado 95-49 Friday evening at the Texan Dome.

The Texans have not lost since March 4, 2011.

Moreira was 6-of-12 from the field and five of his rebounds were on the offensive end.  He also swatted away three shots.

By halftime, Moreira had scored 13 points and collected nine rebounds to help SPC to a 23-point lead at intermission.  He played only four-minutes in the second half.

Freshman Kendahl Amerson had another standout game, making 4-of-6 shots from beyond the 3-point line to finish with 12 points.  Malik Nichols and Forrest Robinson chipped in with 11 apiece. 

Sophomore floor general Devonte Smith dished out a career high 12 assists.

Since the Texans struggled somewhat against Ranger College in their first game of the season – a game they ultimately won by 17-points – South Plains has won their last three games by an average of 53 points per contest. 

On Saturday, the Texans will look to continue their winning ways against North Lake College at 3 p.m.  Live video and stats of the Texans’ game versus the Blazers will be available at www.spctexans.com.

North Lake (2-1) fell to third-ranked Howard College 76-45 in the final game Friday night.
