Lion Review

  • SAGU ran out to a 7-2 start thanks to 5 points by Mason and a rebound and stick back by Kashila.
  • The margin was steady at 5 points until Noah Bowling ( FR/Van Alstyne, TX ) knocked down a three-pointer and Kashila followed up with a fastbreak bucket to push the margin to double-digits at 26-16 with 6:39 remaining in the first half.
  • The two teams traded baskets as the majority of the first half was played within a couple of possessions of each other.
  • PQC cut the margin to 5 (36-31) but Coach Delton Deal took a timeout with :07 left which allowed him to set up a play freeing Mitchell McMullen ( SR/San Antonio, TX ) to knock down a long-range shot with :01 left to give the Lions momentum going into halftime.
  • SAGU opened the 2 nd half with a 10-4 run building their lead to 14 points (49-35).
  • PQU didn’t go away easily. They were able to hang around, but never cut the deficit below 7 points.
  • If there is one area SAGU can clean up it has to be free throw shooting. Over the last three games, the Lions have shot just 52% from the stripe. Tonight was a little different as SAGU converted on 14-19 (73%) including 6-8 during the last five minutes to help salt the victory away.
