Pride seeks rebound against EC Royals

Lady Lions are off until Thursday

WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  Just two days after failing to finish off Wayland Baptist University, the Southwestern Assemblies of God University men's basketball team returns to the court.

The Lions will tote a 23-4 record into Sheaffer Center when they take on Ecclesia College (6-17) tonight at 7:00pm (CST).

Fans can view the game in (free) High Definition video on SAGU TVwww.sagu.edu/tv

The broadcast will start at approximately 6:45pm with a pregame show. Rob Price is the host and play-by-play announcer with Tim Roberts serving as color analyst. Sideline interviews will be handled by Tyler Marie Evans.

LiveStats, a digital play-by-play webcast of the game, will also be available for fans. The link is posted below.

The teams met on January 27 in Springdale, Arkansas, when SAGU won by a 107-76 count. It was 56-36 at recess.

Thirteen players scored during the game, led by junior wing Jon Walter (Garland, Tx / Garland HS). He made eight-of-nine shots and finished with 19 points.

Caleb Feemster (Addison, Tx / Trinity Christian-Addison, Ranger College ) and Dominique Rambo (Dallas, Tx / Trinity Christian - Cedar Hill, Ok Wesleyan Univ ) each netted 15 points while Andre Creer (Ft Worth, Tx / Trimble Tech HS, Angelina College ) tossed in a dozen.

Feemster will be held out again to rest an injury. He is second on the team in rebounds and his 62 three-pointers is tops among the Pride.

The visiting Royals are a young program under first year Head Coach T.K. Smith. They have played a very tough schedule littered with NCAA Division 2 teams as well as numerous NAIA squads.

This Thursday is the final chance for fans to see SAGU before they enter the post-season.

St. Gregory's University, ranked No. 23 and currently third place in the Sooner Athletic Conference, visit at 8:00pm. The Cavaliers (20-7) are the biggest surprise in the league this winter. A year ago they posted a 7-21 mark.

Walter poured in 29 points to lead the Lions to a 91-83 triumph in the first meeting a month ago.

The Cavs are led by the SAC's top scorer in guard Marty Wilkerson (21.2 ppg). He has accounted for 20 or more points in 20 of 27 games.

On Saturday SAGU allowed the Pioneers to overcome a nine-point deficit to cage the Lions in overtime, 98-91.

Since rising to No. 1 in the Top 25 Coaches Poll a month ago, the Purple and Gold have won seven of ten games. All four of their losses have been by nine points or less, three of them on the road.

The home setback to Wayland ended the team's 22-game winning streak inside the friendly confines of Sheaffer Center.
