Seven different Seahawk players scored 10 or more points as Lamar State College Port Arthur scored a 129-68 win over CMP Prep in Tuesday's finale of the Seahawks' New Year's Classic.
The Seahawks, now 6-8 for the season, return to Region 14 play Friday, Jan. 3 when they travel to Athens, Texas to play Trinity Valley College at 7 p.m.
The next home game will be at 4 p.m. Monday, Jan. 6 against Kilgore College at the Carl Parker Center. The unusual weekday starting time is because classes haven't resumed at the school.
Thomas scored 22 of his points in the first 8:31 of the game as Lamar State jumped to a 13-0 lead and then carried a 65-29 cushion into halftime.
"It was a feel-good game for us," Lance Madison, LSCPA head coach, said. "We moved the ball pretty good. We shared the ball. I thought we played pretty good basketball."
Thomas, scoring in double figures for the 12th time this season, had a team-high six rebounds, a number also grabbed by Miller and J'Son Brooks.
The Seahawks shot 98 times in the fast-paced game and hit on 55 (56 percent). They grabbed 55 rebounds and had 28 assists while forcing 30 turnovers.
