Social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter were buzzing last Saturday evening when mixed martial arts fans in Southeast Texas turned their televisions to KBTV FOX 4 to watch UFC’s debut on mainstream TV. But what they saw was the Lamar University Cardinals vs. Nicholls State Colonels football game.
Locals had to wait to watch the hour-long special, which ended with a 64-second knockout. FOX 4 aired UFC after the game ended.
ATHENS, Ohio – Lamar University got 20 points from Mike James, and 18 from Charlie Harper on Tuesday night at the Convocation Center, but it was not enough as Ohio University outlasted the Cardinals for an 85-78 overtime basketball victory.
KalisLoyd’s 24 points led a balanced scoring attack as the Lamar University women’s basketball team opened its season with an 82-62 non-conference win over Our Lady of the Lake at the Montagne Center on Friday night.
While we harbor no disrespect for the Wall Street Journal who called us “that scrappy little paper from Southeast Texas,” we prefer to think of ourselves as simple seekers of the truth. We’re of the opinion that headlines and sound bites never tell the whole story. Our readers demand all the facts, facets and flavors of every story or event. And, they expect to be informed, educated and stirred to action.
