Legends Storm Past Stars

Official Release | March 11, 2022

The Texas Legends (11-13) grabbed a wire-to-wire victory over the Salt Lake City Stars (7-17) 115-101 Thursday night in Frisco.

Texas smothered the Stars in the first, knocking down 64% of all shots and finishing the quarter up 43-14.  The Legends built up their largest lead of the night (+37) in the second and finished the first half with a 73-43 advantage.  The home team’s hot shooting cooled down in the second half, and as the Legends shivered through the fourth, the Stars heated up.  Salt Lake City finished the fourth 31-14 and hit a 10-0 run to the buzzer, but the home team held tight to their lead to get the series-tying win.

All five Legends starters finished in double-digits, and Justin Jackson led all scorers with 27 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists.  Carlik Jones grabbed Texas’ only double-double at 21 points, 11 assists, and 6 rebounds.  Feron Hunt finished with 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals.  Moses Wright added 15 points, 8 rebounds, and Olin Carter III tagged on 11 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists.

The Stars were led by Jazz assignees Udoka Azubuike with 16 points, 17 rebounds, and 4 blocks and Jared Butler with 23 points, 5 assists.

The Legends head into game three of a five-game homestand this Saturday hosting the Birmingham Squadron at 7:30pm CT.  For tickets or information call 214-469-0822 or visit www.TexLegends.com.
