SAGU scores 56 in second half, prepare for big games

Team, now 3-3, heads to Oklahoma tournament

rodriguez-jirah-2010RICHARDSON, Texas  --  Southwestern Assemblies of God University snapped a three-game skid with a convincing 97-56 rout of Dallas Christian College on Tuesday night.

Meshing in a crop of new players with a returning core, the Lady Lions had yet to find offensive rhythm in their first five games.

Tonight’s execution may have been just the tonic the squad needs heading into a tough tournament this weekend. It will serve to prepare the team for the start of the Sooner Athletic Conference season.

SAGU was slow out of the game, leading 22-15 with 5:58 left in the first half. They closed with a 19-10 surge to lead at the break, 41-25.

The host Lady Crusaders made a run of three-pointers to reduce their deficit to 59-46 in the first six minutes of the second stanza.

Team Purple refused to fold, extending their lead to 76-55 with 5:59 to go. The Lady Lions converted 20 of 23 free throws to close the game by scoring 21 of the game’s final 22 points.

The victory improved the team’s record to 3-3 and continued the team’s mastery over Dallas Christian to nine straight.

SAGU heads to Bartlesville, Oklahoma, 45 miles north of Tulsa, for the Oklahoma Wesleyan Classic on Friday and Saturday at the Mueller Sports Center.

They will open against Central Baptist College (Ark) at 2:00pm on November 22. The Lady Mustangs had a 12-15 mark last season.

No. 8 ranked Oklahoma Wesleyan University, 24-6 a year ago, await at 6:00pm the following night.

The Lady Stars are currently ranked No. 2 nationally.
