Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball Southwestern Adventist

“I’m glad to get that first home game under our belt. We had a great crowd which both helps and hurts sometimes as we were trying to do too much,” explains head coach Donnie Bostwick , “SW is better than they were last year and they came to play.”

The first half of the game was very close.  With 5:50 left to play, the game was tied for the fifth time of the night at 29-all. Lance Tipton was able to go on a five point run to give SAGU the lead that they were in turn able to keep for the rest of the game.  At halftime, the Lions were ahead 39-34.

Bostwick was relieved that his team could extend the lead after a close first half, “It was good to see us right the ship and put the game away early the second half. Our bench is getting better every game. We are going to need them so that is a real positive.”

Less than a minute into the second half, SWA’s T. Gagau scored a quick four points to bring SAGU’s lead within one point.  After that, the Lions took off. Keyunta Watkins scored back-to-back three pointers to put SAGU up 51-40.  Their lead only continued to grow.

For SAGU, each starter scored in the double digits. Keyunta Watkins led the way with 16 points and four assist. Isaak Rowe , Josh Williams and Kentton Williams each added 12 points. Dareny Sims came off the bench to lead in rebounds with seven.

On Thursday, November 3, 2016 SAGU will host the annual Texas Snowstorm game.  The game is scheduled for 8:30pm against Dallas Christian College.

“This week is great for the fans with Costume and Candy night tonight and the Snowstorm on Thursday. After that the road gets much more challenging,” says Bostwick.
