Re-Live the Lions' RRAC Highlights
SAGU Sports Live posts big play video
Join fans for a Send-Off on Monday morning
WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- The growing fan base of Lion-Nation can re-view the Southwestern Assemblies of God University men's basketball team's recent post-season highlights.
SAGU Sports Live, who aired all of the team's tourney games on-line, have posted a three-minute video-clip of some of the big plays from the three games.
Included are dunks, hustle plays, three-pointers and some of Dominique Rambo's 43-point eruption in the semi-finals.
One play, which is repeated in slow motion, shows a steal at midcourt by Caleb "Hondo" Gentry. While on one knee, he connects with Jon Walter with a behind the back pass.
Walter glides in for a contested flush, much to the delight of a packed Sheaffer Center.
SSL is a part of the SAGU Sports Network, which can be accessed from the university's website under Watch SAGU TV. Color Analyst Tim Roberts and guest host Clay Scarborough are the voices describing the action.
Scarborough, a former Assistant Baseball Coach and Sports Information Director at SAGU, is now the Assistant Principal at John Tyler High School in Tyler, Texas. He filled in for regular host Rob Price.
