SAGU men's basketball plays NAIA semi-finalsKansas City, Missouri — March 18, 2013 — The best season in the history of Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball continues when they play in the semi-finals Monday, March 18 at the National Association of Intercollegiate Association’s (NAIA) national championship tournament in Kansas City, Missouri.

The games will be broadcast on ESPN3 that is available through your TV service provider or high-speed Internet provider. You may also download the WatchESPN App for IOS or Android mobile phones and tablets. ESPN3 is also accessible on the Xbox device.

Ranked no. 6 in the NAIA’s most recent Top 25 Coaches Poll, SAGU will meet no. 2 Lindsey Wilson College (Ky) at 6 p.m. (CST). Both teams have identical 32-4 won-lost records.

SAGU was 10-22 as recently as two years ago, but hasn’t had a winning record in over 15 years. The hiring of Head Coach Donnie Bostwick triggered the largest turnaround as the Lions improved to 27-11.

SAGU men’s basketball is known for their defense, depth and their determined play. They rank in the Top 5 nationally in field goal defense, and in offensive rebounds. The team also ranks among the best teams in the country in three-pointers per game and in steals. 

Kalen Kimberland leads Lindsey Wilson into its contest with SAGU. The guard from Columbia, Ky., has averaged 17.0 points in three championship games, up four points from his season average. He also has grabbed a team-best 6.7 rebounds. As a team, the Blue Raiders have made more free throws (65) than their opponents have attempted (62) in three contests this week. Champions of the Mid-South Conference tournament, Lindsey Wilson defeated Rocky Mountain (Mont.) in the first round, 84-79, eliminated Faulkner (Ala.), 66-60, in the second round and MidAmerica Nazarene (Kan.), 83-74, in the quarterfinals.

SAGU is playing in just its second overall national championship, losing in the 2006 first round. The Lions got past the likes of Science & Arts (Okla.), 62-58, Martin Methodist (Tenn.), 72-68, and No. 14 Montana Western, 84-79. Four players average in double-figures with Dominique Rambo leading the way with 19.3 points and 15 steals (5.0 spg). Jonathan Walter adds 12.7 and a team-best 6.0 rebounds. SAGU earned a berth to this year's event by winning the RRAC regular-season championship.
