Islanders reach best start in program history in win over UTRGV

Texas A&M-CC won its seventh straight with a big second half against the Vaqueros.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Islanders needed a second-half comeback to knock off rival UTRGV 75-69 Wednesday night at the American Bank Center and reach their best start in school history.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (8-1) got a game-high 27 points from Isaac Mushila, the reigning Southland Conference Player of the Week. The Islanders trailed 36-29 at the break and struggled from the field on just 34.3% shooting in the first 20 minutes before rallying to outscore the Vaqueros 46-33 in the second half.

The Islanders now have won seven straight games as they hit the road for games at Omaha and Wisconsin starting this weekend.
