Waxahachie, Texas- November 4, 2015- The Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) men’s basketball team lost to Wiley College , 62-58. This was the first loss of the season for SAGU and it took until the final seconds of the game for Wiley to pull away with the victory.  SAGU is now 2-1 for the season and Wiley College is now 2-0.

The entire first half was neck and neck.  The biggest lead of the half came after SAGU’s Aaron Embry made a basket that extended the Lions lead to 6.  At halftime, SAGU was only up by two with a score of 27-25.

The second half was a different story.  The Lions led most of the time, with their greatest margin coming at 12:27, when Tyler Pate made a three point shot that put SAGU ahead 46-31.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t the dagger SAGU needed; Wiley still had a lot of fight left in them.

The Wildcats went on a 31 to 12 run in the final 12 minutes of the game.  At 3:07, Wiley’s Cory Jones made a three point shot that tied the game 52-52.  With 1:11 left, Wiley pulled ahead by five points.

With 20 seconds left in the game, SAGU cut WC’s lead down to two points after a shot made by Rishaad Alexander. The Lions were able to get a steal, but that only resulted in a SAGU turnover.  In the end, the Wildcats topped the Lions 62-58.

SAGU senior Emmanuel Adoyi led in scoring with 15 points.  Adoyi also had 11 rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Isaak Rowe had 12 points and eight rebounds. Tyler Pate added 10 points.

Wiley’s Cory Jones led all-scorers with 20 points.

On Thursday, November 5, 2015, SAGU will host Dallas Christian College at 8pm.
