SHAWNEE, Oklahoma  --  Aaron Abram split two free throws with 1:10 to play in overtime to break a 78-78 tie to send tournament host Oklahoma Baptist University to a 79-78 upset of No. 5 ranked Southwestern Assemblies of God University on Thursday evening.

Abram led OBU with 20 points and 15 rebounds. Five others reached double figures.

The Lions (26-5) led for much of the game, once by 10 points, and led in all of the categories that spell victory. Except free throws.

SAGU won the battle of the boards, 45-43, including 13-8 on the offensive glass. They made just nine turnovers. That allowed them to dominate the shots attempted, 74-58.

Team Purple made 14 three-pointers to just seven for the unranked Bison (17-15).

From start to finish the Lions were in foul trouble, finishing with 25. It allowed OBU to offset SAGU's domination by going to foul line 32 times. They made 24.

SAGU had 12 attempts, making 10. They tried just three in the second half. None in extra time.

OBU took full advantage. They took all five of the free throws awarded in OT without being called for one themselves.

SAGU's last chance on their final possession ended with Dominique Rambo driving the baseline. He split two defenders and appeared to be bumped by both as the shot wobbled awry without touching the cylinder.

Rambo paced the Pride with 19 points. Caleb Gentry and Jonathan Walter netted 15 and 13 respectively. Four of the Lions five starters finished with four personal fouls.

The Lions will not play again until the NAIA National Tournament during March 19-25.

SAGU drove the 230 mile trip to Shawnee this afternoon and will return to campus later tonight to avoid missing any class time.
