Men’s basketball records best start ever

on December 7, 2012 by Janet Edwards

Asa Toney scores against UMSL in a thrilling win for the men’s basketball Saints.

The Maryville men’s basketball team is having the best start in program history, and that record continued on Dec. 8, when Armon Provo scored a game-high 20 points with a 66-54 victory over visiting Robert Morris-Springfield. The win is the fifth straight for the Saints, the longest since Maryville also won five consecutive games from Feb. 15- 25, 2006. Melvin Turner sank a 3-pointer on the first possession of the game, and the Saints never gave up their lead.

The team also had a thrilling victory on Dec. 5, when Asa Toney scored a career-high 30 points in a 72-65 overtime game at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. The win was the first for the Saints over the Tritons in 14 attempts.

The Saints, who took a break for final exams, next play at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15, when Lindenwood comes to Moloney Arena.
