Chaminade beats Texas
November 19, 2012 - Robert Collias
The University of Texas basketball team was on the verge of breaking in to The Associated Press top 25 this morning, but the Longhorns will not be anywhere close next week.
NCAA Division II Chaminade beat the Longhorns 86-73 in the opening round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational moments ago -- the Silverswords improved to 7-76 all-time in the tournament they annually host at the Lahaina Civic Center. Senior guard De'Andre Haskins led the way for Chaminade with 32 points.
The Silverswords won a first-round game for the fourth time in this event: they beat Davidson 77-62 in first tournament in 1984 at War Memorial Gym in a four-team event in the first game ever played in this tournament, they beat Providence 111-108 in 1991 when current Texas coach Rick Barnes was the head man for the Friars, and beat a suspension-depleted Villanova 52-49 in 2003.
Chaminade's last win of any kind was in 2010, 68-64 over Oklahoma in seventh-place game. Chaminade's other wins in the event were 74-70 over Princeton for seventh place in 2007, and 71-63 over Stanford for seventh in 1992.
