SLC Champions! Ladyjacks rout UTSA in season-finale to earn a share of the title

The Stephen F. Austin Ladyjacks were dominant rolling to a 77-61 win over UTSA Saturday afternoon at the Convocation Center San Antonio. The win moves SFA to 18-9 on the season, and 13-3 in Southland Conference play, and hands the Ladyjacks a share of the 2010 SLC title, their 15th in program history.

The Ladyjack defense caused all sorts of problems for UTSA in the opening half. SFA held the `Runners to 3-of-their-first-14, and UTSA never seemed to find the mark. The Roadrunners finished the half 7-of-24 (.292). SFA also forced their hosts into 16 first-half turnovers, which SFA converted into 11 points. The Ladyjacks also held an advantage on the glass outrebounding UTSA, 26-16, in the opening 20 minutes. The Ladyjacks were 12-of-33 (.364) in the first half.

Both recitals are free and open to the public.

Each fall, SFA music students enter the School of Music's annual Concerto/Aria Competition, and the winners have the unique opportunity of performing with a full orchestra, explained Gene H. Moon, director of orchestral activities at SFA and the Orchestra of the Pines' music director.

Student soloists are trumpeter Jarrod Beard, Groesbeck graduate student, performing the first movement of Joseph Haydn's "Trumpet Concerto in E-flat major," and soprano Monica Hamilton, Gallatin graduate student, singing "Où va la jeune Indoue" (Indian Bell Song) from "Lakmè" by Léo Delibes.

Random Trivia

A fear of long words is, ironically, called "Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia."

The antibacterial components of antibacterial soaps (usually triclosan or, less commonly, triclocarbon) needs to be left on a surface for about two minutes in order to work. Most people are not this patient, and end up washing off the soap before the antibacterial ingredients can do their job.
