WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  The heart of the Red River Athletic Conference season is beating and the games mean more, evidenced by the intensity and down-to-the-wire contests.

Southwestern Assemblies of God University split a pair of games against Oklahoma's Langston University on Monday night at the Sheaffer Center. The Lady Lions came up short against the six-time defending league champions, 52-51, in a see-saw game they led until the final six minutes.

The host Lady Lions continue to develop. They lost to LU earlier in the season, 62-46, in Langston, Ok. SAGU is 7-15 overall and 4-11 in the RRAC. They are now tied with Jarvis Christian College for eighth in the league, which invites the top eight to its post-season tournament.

The Lions had their hands full with a fired up Langston squad that was bent on stunning the no. 16 ranked Purple Pride. They led for much of the game until a late surge when SAGU roared to grab a 75-71 white-knuckler.

Southwestern trailed 60-49 with 6:30 remaining. The Lions had a 71-68 lead until Emil Clayton hit a three-pointer to even the score with twelve seconds left.

Head Coach Donnie Bostwick passed on a timeout, allowing Dominique Rambo (Dallas, Tx / Oklahoma Wesleyan University, Trinity Christian School) to zoom the length of the court. He sliced inside and appeared to have an open layup before he was clearly fouled with five ticks on the clock.

His two free throws broke the deadlock and a moment later Caleb Gentry (Hondo, Tx / Oklahoma Wesleyan Univ., Hondo HS) bagged two more to ice the game.

Team Purple upped their record to 19-3 in all games, and are now 13-2 in the league action. It was also SAGU's 10th straight win.

Both SAGU teams will have an even thougher challenge on Saturday, February 2, when Texas Wesleyan University comes to Waxahachie.

Complete details on both games - including box scores, will be posted later.
