UT Tyler's Basketball Team

The much improved UT Tyler basketball team pulled out a close win on Tuesday night, outlasting LeTourneau Yellow Jackets. The 65 to 60 win helped improve the Patriots to 5-6, just one game under .500. The game entitled competitive, back and forth action between the two schools. With clutch shooting and good defense, the Patriots pulled out the all important win against a conference opponent. Head coach, Kenny Bizot, stated that this "was a must win" for the Patriots to climb back up in the conference standings.
            Key shots by Michael Johnson and a heads up transition lay up by Lance Murphy that left 17 seconds in the game, helped put the game out of reach. Bizot said that he liked that "so many people stepped up" in pulling out the win for the Patriots. While saying this he also acknowledged that the team has "some things to work on and they have to get better in certain areas." After this win the Patriots improved to 5-6 in the American Southwest Conference. The Patriots will next travel to play east to Marshall, TX to play East Texas Baptist University.
