CALGARY - The Calgary Stampeders are giving receiver Joe West the time and support he needs to cope with the death of his brother. Brandon Hobdy, a 23-year-old receiver at Southern Arkansas University, was shot dead off-campus early Sunday morning. Within hours of learning of the tragedy, a grieving West had 129 yards on four catches in Calgarys 32-7 win over the Redblacks in Ottawa. The Stampeders gathered at a residential golf course Monday morning in Calgary for their annual charity tournament which raises money for high school athletics. Head coach and general manager John Hufnagel awaited word from West on funeral arrangements and his travel plans. "Hes doing as well as can be expected," Hufnagel said. "His teammates were there to help him through it. He played the game. He played the game with a lot of emotion, obviously. But he was able to control it. "Joe was always a respected player on our football team, but that grew leaps and bounds yesterday." While West flew back to Calgary with the Stampeders on Sunday night, SAU held a candlelight vigil for Hobdy at Wilkins Stadium in Magnolia, Ark. Hobdy and 24-year-old Wayne Payton were identified as the victims in a double homicide investigation, according to a Columbia County Sheriffs statement. West, 30, is in his third season with the Stampeders. He was born in Melbourne, Fla., but played high school and college football in Texas. His 58-yard catch from quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell in the third quarter Sunday afternoon put Calgary within 20 yards of the end zone, although the Stampeders turned the ball over on that drive. "His courage and strength yesterday, man, it speaks volume as to what type of guy he is," linebacker Juwan Simpson said. "I was talking to a few guys and honestly . . . I dont know if I could have played. For him to go out there and not only play but have a great game, it says a lot. "Different people handle things differently. (Well) just be there for him whenever he wants to talk. Whatever he wants, well give it to him. If he needs time, Im sure Huf will give him time." There was little time between West learning of his brothers death and the game. He and Hufnagel didnt discuss his participation until they met in the locker-room prior to kickoff. "He told me he wanted to play," Hufnagel said. "I said Joe, do whatever you want to do. If you have to go home, whenever you have to go home, if you dont want to play, whatever you want to do, thats fine with me. "I was very pleased that he had the opportunity to make some game-deciding plays to help us win the game. I was hoping that would happen because I thought it would be important for the type of day that it was." Team chaplain Rodd Sawatzky had accompanied the team to Ottawa. He provided counselling for West and the Stampeders. Veteran slotback Nik Lewis struggled with his emotions during the game. His younger brother A.J. Ray and Hobdy were friends and Muleriders teammates at SAU. "It was especially hard for me," Lewis said. "I didnt know if I was supposed to have fun, I didnt know how I was supposed to feel in that situation because Ive never been in a situation like that. "We all go through a bunch of stuff in life outside of football that never gets put in the media. Were there for each other all the time. This just happened to be something thats really tragic and senseless. Well just continue to be there for each other." Calgary receiver Martell Mallett knows Wests feelings. While Mallett was a member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2012, his brother Michael was shot and killed in Pine Bluff, Ark. "At the time, I just wanted to talk to people who had been in similar situations," Mallett said. "You have something in common and they know the hurt." Mallett is on Calgarys injured list and didnt make the trip to Ottawa. Knowing West would be inundated with phone calls and text messages, Mallett reached out to him via text. "Once I heard about it, it hurt me so bad," Mallett said. "My heart dropped just like it was a family member of mine. I wouldnt wish this on my worst enemy. "Im pretty sure well talk over the next few weeks, but I just wanted to let him know first and foremost man I love you and I know where you come from." Brandon Facyson Jersey .

Thames made the go-ahead basket in the extra session to help the Aztecs (18-1, 7-0 Mountain West) win for the 16th time in their last 17 overtime games. Spencer Butterfield had 19 points and Jalen Moore added a career-high 16 for the Aggies (12-7, 2-5), who lost at home for the second time this season. Butterfield hit a 3-pointer over two defenders with 2.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. He drained another 3 to put Utah State up 62-61 with 3:03 left, but Thames put a halt to the rally. He nailed a jumper that put San Diego State ahead for good with 1:50 remaining and made a 3 with 49.6 seconds left to make it 66-62.

The Aggies took a 52-48 lead when Marcel Davis stole the ball and fed Moore with 7:47 remaining.

Butterfield changed that with his 3 from the right wing thatt tied it at 57.dddddddddddd After a timeout, Thames corralled a long pass at the other end but missed a tough jumper at the buzzer. San Diego State struggled to overcome poor shooting early. The Aztecs missed 10 of their first 12 shots from the field and shot just 33 per cent (10 of 30) before halftime. Utah State had a difficult time taking advantage. The Aztecs used a smothering defence to pressure USU into turnovers. SDSU forced seven Aggies turnovers before halftime and five of those came on steals. San Diego State also dominated the glass, holding a 10-5 edge in offensive rebounds during the first half. The Aztecs made the most of it, outscoring Utah State 13-6 in second-chance points. All that helped SDSU create a little breathing room before halftime. The teams traded baskets for most of the half and the Aggies took a 15-14 lead on Ben Cliffords jumper with 9:31 left. San Diego State responded by going on a 10-1 run over the next 6 minutes to take a 24-16 lead. Winston Shepard hit a jumper and Josh Davis drove in for a layup on back-to-back possessions to cap the spurt with 3:42 remaining before halftime. Utah State started mounting a rally toward the end of the half. Butterfield scored with 59 seconds left to trim SDSUs lead to 28-24 going into the locker room. In the second half, Preston Medlin and Butterfield made 3s on consecutive possessions to help Utah State tie it at 32. The Aggies scored baskets on three straight possessions and took a 42-40 lead with 12:55 left on consecutive 3-pointers from Medlin.
