Lions Dyani Robinson and Juliana Louis are among the student-athletes eyeing postseason success in 2021.
Lone Star Conference

The Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s and women’s basketball teams are looking to bring some excitement to a campus and a fan base that have had less to cheer about, at least in person, in recent months. The COVID-19 pandemic brought the 2019-2020 NCAA Division II sports season to an early end and has put a damper on the current 2020-21 season.

Senior guard Anthony Adams is averaging 13 points per game for the Lions.

Don't be fooled by the fact that the Lions aren't at the top of the Lone Star Conference. The Texas A&M University-Commerce men's basketball team, which won the LSC tournament last season, are among the six teams considered to be legitimate contenders for this year's conference crown.
