Marshall, Texas- November 20, 2015- The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball team battled back after a nearly 20 point deficit, but ultimately came up short against Wiley College.  The Wildcats beat SAGU 68-65, to improve to a perfect 4-0.  SAGU is now 5-2 for the season.

“I was very proud of the comeback we made tonight,” explains head coach Donnie Bostwick, “It is frustrating that we came out and were basically manhandled the first 25 minutes, before we woke up and competed.”

Near the end of the first half is when Wiley had an 18 point lead.  At halftime, the Wildcats were ahead 39-25.

“Getting down 18 points was a big hole to climb out of. We had four or five shots to tie the game or take the lead late, but just could not get that big shot to fall,” says Bostwick.

Wiley outrebounded SAGU 54-33, which Bostwick says is unusual for his team.  The Lions had trouble getting anything to fall, shooting 35% for the game and four of 23 from the three point line.

SAGU’s Keyunta Watkins scored 16 points.  Jason Gentry added 14 points.  Markey Young had five rebounds for the Lions.  Emmaneul Adoyi and Micah Gentry both added four.

WC’s George Page had an impressive game, scoring 29 points and getting 13 rebounds.

On Monday, November 23, 2015, SAGU will host Paul Quinn College (1-3).  Game time is at 7:30pm.
