What to Know
The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders and the NW State Demons will face off in a Southland clash at 6 p.m. ET Jan. 6 at Leonard E. Merrell Center. The Islanders should still be riding high after a victory, while NW State will be looking to regain their footing.
Texas A&M-Corpus Christi couldn’t have asked for better way to wrap up 2021 than the 101-49 stomp they got at home against the Sul Ross State Lobos this past Friday.
Meanwhile, it’s never fun to lose, and it’s even less fun to lose 104-68, which was the final score in NW State’s tilt against the Baylor Bears last Tuesday. A silver lining for the Demons was the play of guard Carvell Teasett, who shot 6-for-10 from beyond the arc and finished with 18 points and five dimes.
When the teams previously met two seasons ago, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi lost to NW State by a decisive 79-62 margin. The loss knocked Texas A&M-Corpus Christi out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at NW State with a vengeful fire.
