Waxahachie, Texas – February 19, 2016- The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball team topped Southwestern Christian University 76-61.  The Lions were looking for revenge from an earlier season loss when SCU topped them in convincing fashion, 85-66.  Now, SAGU is in fourth place in the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) with a record of 9-6 (18-9 overall).

“I have been telling my boys that if we continue to plant seed, it would rain,” says head coach Donnie Bostwick, “We had a good week of preparation both physically and spiritually. We expected to make shots and get stops, and there is power in expectation.”

SAGU’s expectations paid off.  They were impressive from the three point line.  They shot 15 of 35 at 43%.  Senior Emmanuel Adoyi and junior Keyunta Watkins each had five three pointers.

The Lions took the early lead and never looked back.  With 3:21 left in the half, SAGU’s Emmanuel Adoyi hit a three to put the Lions up by 20 points.

At halftime, SAGU was in the lead, 46-26.

SCU didn’t let up and with 4:13 left in the game, they were able to pull within 11 points.   But in the end, SAGU walked away with the 19 point victory.

SAGU’s Emmanuel Adoyi had a season-high 24 points and 11 rebounds .  Keyunta Watkins had 17 points. Jason Gentry added 13 points.

SCU’s Marvin White had 23 points.

“Our seniors are leading, our bench is getting stronger, our execution is improving, our faith in each other and in God’s ability and desire for us to succeed is increasing. We plan on focusing on building on that improvement and trust God for where that takes us,” says Bostwick.

On Saturday, February 20, 2016, SAGU will host Texas Wesleyan University .  Currently, TWU is ranked no. 7 in the NAIA.  They are also sitting in the top spot in the SAC.  The Rams are 22-4 overall and 13-2 in the SAC.  In late January, TWU topped SAGU, 84-76.  Game time is at 5pm.
