Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball Paul Quinn College

“It is always good to come out on top and we are making progress, but the truth is we have a long way to go. SAC play begins after the break and we need to step up on the defensive end,” explains head coach Donnie Bostwick .

In the first few minutes of the game, PQC jumped to an early lead, going up by five in the first 2:30 of play.  Half way through the first half SAGU was able to turn the tables and was leading by 10 after Isaak Rowe scored a quick four points.

PQC continued to battle and with 3:52 left in the first half they were able to tie the game at 34 after a basket made by LaDarrius Brown .  At halftime SAGU was ahead, 43-40.

The game remained close for the first 10 minutes of the second half.  Paul Quinn was able to tie the game once again with 12:44 left to play.  This would be the last time the game would be tied.

SAGU junior Keyunta Watkins scored 24 points.  Freshman Isaak Rowe had 15 points and junior Remington Mitchell added 14.  Senior Emmanuel Adoyi had six rebounds and two steals.

Paul Quinn was led by Jesse Williams and Blake Ervin who both scored 19 points.  Williams also had 15 rebounds.

On Thursday, December 3, 2015, the Lions will play their first Sooner Athletic Conference game when they host Bacone College .  BC is currently 1-5, but they have three games scheduled before they play SAGU.

The Lions have now improved to 6-2 for the season.  Both losses came from Wiley College.  Bostwick says his team has been working on winning close games, “We are just a few shots away from going into SAC play undefeated, but we have been working hard to correct mistakes. Winning close games is about trusting each other and learning to fight as a team.”
