Published 11:48 pm Thursday, February 11, 2016

Concordia University Texas senior Donovan Ford scored the second-most points in a single game in school history last Saturday in Austin.

Ford, who graduated form Port Arthur Memorial, had 51 points in a 144-114 victory over the University of the Ozarks (Arkansas). The team total matched a 35-year-old school record for the Tornadoes, and Ford canned 11 three-point baskets in the process to set an American Southwest Conference record. Ford is now the fourth player in conference history to go for more than 50 points.

One of the others to do so, Ozarks’ Josh Breard, had 60 points in the same game. K.B. DeBord of Concordia had the previous conference record of 53 in a 2001 game.
