Waxahachie, TX – Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball team played their home opener on Tuesday night against Dallas Christian College (DCC). The boys were eager to touch the floor and played with effort the whole night regardless of the score. The Lions were in control the entire game; they opened the game on a 22-3 run which would set the pace for the rest of the game. Coach Deal was able to play all 12 of his players and each of them were able to score in the game. The final score was 91-57. This was the first game of the season for the Lions due to multiple delays and cancelations. This will be their only game of the semester as well. In the spring look forward to our Lions picking up where they left off.
