WAC Hoops Recap

WAC Hoops Week-In-Review with Inland Sports Sr. Writer Derryl Trujillo

Another week of WAC Hoops has come and gone. With it, some bad news came as well. UTRGV head coach Lew Hill passed away in his sleep on Sunday morning. Hill was 55 at the time of his death and it has created a shockwave around the coaching circles. There is also speculation that the Vaqueros will shut down the season after the loss of their beloved coach.

It’s tough to really put together an episode after talking about this heartbreaking news. But, life sometimes has to go one. Kyle and Derryl talk about the weekend that was. The CBU women continue to dominate and are 18-0 overall and moving up the collegeinsider.com Mid-Major Top-25 rankings. GCU continues to keep pace in the women’s race for the regular season crown. Molly Miller is a winner and has the Lopes right in the mix after a sweep of UTRGV. Utah Valley continues to stay in the mix and host the Lopes this upcoming weekend in a big series for both teams.

On the men’s side, New Mexico State got in the win column after a dominating performance Saturday night against California Baptist. Jabari Rice had a season-high 20 points to lead the Aggies who scored 97 points in the win. Seattle earned a split of the weekend at Dixie State. Redhawks guard Darrion Trammell was the WAC Player of the Week after posting 30 points in back-to-back games this weekend.

Tarleton State dominated its non-DI opponent by 64 points. UTRGV lost on a buzzer-beater tip-in that was heartbreaking at Texas southern. And then the worst news of it all came to end the week.
