Lion Review

  • Mason was a matchup nightmare all night for JCC. He found the open space at the high-post and picked JCC apart. He was able to score or find his teammates down low for easy baskets.
  • The game was called tightly by the officials and it became a free-throw shooting contest early in each half. If there was one downside for the Lions, it was their free-throw shooting. SAGU shot an abysmal 31% from the line.
  • JCC was able to stick around throughout the game by forcing SAGU into 27 turnovers and capitalizing at the free-throw line as they converted on 15-17 (88%) attempts.
  • JCC had no answers for the SAGU post players. The Lions dominated the inside by claiming a 55-29 advantage in rebounding.

  • SAGU will travel to Siloam Spring, AR on Tuesday, November 21 st to take on John Brown University at 7:45 pm. It will be the first road game of the year for the Lions. It will also kick off Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) play for both teams.
