CHICKASHA — Emotions were high Saturday afternoon at the USAO Fieldhouse as the Drovers and the Wayland Baptist Pioneers teams battled for one more win in 2011 — a win the Drovers earned with mere seconds left in regulation.
In their first game back for the spring semester, the Drover men led the Pioneers 39-30 at half. Wayland Baptist rallied from behind to bring the game within three for most of the second half.
CHICKASHA — The USAO women found themselves battling for a conference win with Wayland Baptist on Saturday afternoon in a game that saw the first Drover double double of the season.
Senior Liberty Payne grabbed 13 points and 12 rebounds — her first double double at USAO and the team’s first of the season — in the 71-56 defeat. But it was sophomore Paige Pulliam who was the team’s leading scorer with 17 points in game.
The Drovers led for the first 10 minutes, but the short bench was able to overcome once falling behind the Flying Queens.
