WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  Southwestern Assemblies of God University athletic teams enjoyed a day of high intensity competition that produced three big wins and three well-played setbacks.

Here is a brief summary of the results from a busy day of college sports.

BASEBALL

SAGU dropped a doubleheader on campus to Southern Nazarene University (Ok). The Crimson Storm scored single runs in five innings en route to a 5-1 triumph in the opener.

The Storm broke a 1-1 tie in the last inning of the nightcap for a 3-1 victory.

The Lions are currently 5-3. They play a pair of campus doubleheaders this Friday and Saturday against Wiley College (Tx). Both days start at noon.

SOFTBALL

The Lady Lions began the 2014 season with an exciting split of a twinbill in Tyler, Tx against Texas College. SAGU rolled to a 17-9 win in the opener before falling in the second game, 13-12.

SAGU, who have 14 straight road games to kickoff the campaign, play in Hobbs, New Mexico next weekend. A pair of mid-day doubleheaders against the University of the Southwest are on tap for Friday and Saturday. It is 402 miles to Hobbs.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

SAGU bounced back from Thursday's heartbreaking 65-63 loss to Science & Arts with a stellar performance. Team Lioness held Texas Wesleyan University to 25% shooting and never trailed in a 63-47 victory.

The Lady Lions led at the half, 27-18 and leveled their overall record at 12-12. They improved to 6-8 in the Sooner Athletic Conference.

No. 4 Oklahoma Baptist University visits the Sheaffer Center at 6:00pm on Thursday.

MEN'S BASKETBALL

The Lions also never trailed in a thrilling 77-74 win over Texas Wesleyan.

SAGU took a 47-31 to the lockerroom before holding off a late rally by the Rams. Now 20-3, the Purple Pride stretched their lead to 18 points on several occasions in the second half, the last at 57-39. They still led 69-53 with 7:27 to go.

Ten missed free throws opened the door for a 16-3 run by Wesleyan that witnessed the Rams draw to within 74-72 with ten seconds remaining. They got no closer.

The Lions, who didn't make a single basket in the final 7:27 (0-for-7), made their final eight points from the foul line. Overall the home team made only 16-of-32 free throws.

SAGU retains their two-game lead in the SAC.

Thursday night is a showdown with Oklahoma Baptist. The Bison were picked by SAC coaches as the team to beat, with SAGU voted as the No. 2 team in the league.

OBU routed Wayland Baptist University, 88-67, and have won four of their last six outings.

A full report on all of Saturday's games will be posted by Sunday.
