Tuesday, the Wildcats weren’t holly and jolly in the Christmas spirit, after losing another game in the Lone Star Conference against Texas A&M University-Commerce, 90-88  in the Second Annual Christmas Slam.

The cats are now 4-3 overall and 1-2 in their conference. The team was off to a great start in the beginning, but lost momentum in the second half.

Senior forward, Dosh Simms scored the first basket of the night, moments later following with a skillful alley-oop, scoring a total of nine points in the game, so far his best, after starting his season three games ago against West Texas A&M University.

The top scorers of the night were senior guard, Eric Lawton with 24 points, junior forward, Cornelius Cammock  with 14 points,  senior center, Steven Werner with 12 points, and freshman guard, Parker Wentz, with 9 points.
Wentze scored a nail-biting 3-pointer with 17 seconds left in the second half, to tie the game up 88-88.
Team Big entertained the ACU fans with an incredible acrobatic halftime; they also recruited the likes of Mr. Saint Nick himself to assist in one of the tricks. All throughout the night, there was prizes and chances to snag many Christmas goodies.

Despite the team loss, everyone in attendance was reminded to be thankful and count their many blessings this holiday season. The wildcats will face Tarleton State University this Saturday.
