Part 2 of the first-weekend road trip of 2019 for the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) basketball teams ended with a split at Oklahoma Panhandle State University Saturday. The women had a close game with one of the top five Sooner Athletic Conference teams losing by two in the final minutes, 64-66. The men got back in the win column controlling the whole game with the Aggies and winning by three, 83-80.

The women had three of their starters in double figures in Kiara Glenn (14), Syndey Meador (14), and Jenna Price (13). Mckenzie Martin shot 100% off the bench with 11 points and knocking down three three-pointers and making both of her free throws. Meader led the Lady Lions in rebounding with five and steals with three. SAGU had a two-point lead at halftime, winning 30-28 but were unable to stop Addison Munsch in the second half. Munsch had 28 points on the night which puts her in the top 50 nationally scoring wise. She was the lone Aggie in double-digits during this matchup.

The men had to shut down the leading scorer in the nation in Breiman Alexander who averaged over 28 ppg going into the game. The Lions held him to less than 20 points for the first time this season with 16, 5-18 from the field (27.8%). Josh Kashila bumped up to top 25 nationally in scoring after a game-high of 21 points, he is now averaging 19.3 ppg. Nyk Mason was near a triple-double with 15 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists. Point guard, Cameron Hill was efficient with 12 points and four rebounds. Mitch McMullen was the other Lion in double digits on the game with 10 points and three steals. This was a much-needed win leading up to a big week for both teams.
