KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Playing in the first game of the 2013 Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I Men’s Basketball National Championship on Wednesday morning, the Drovers started off strong, but ultimately couldn’t overcome the No. 6 Southwestern Assemblies of God in the end.

“I’m proud of the way we played,” Head Coach Brisco McPherson said. “It’s not because they didn’t want to win. That team is just so scrappy. I’m just proud of our guys. They competed.”

CHICKASHA – A strong fifth inning on Saturday afternoon against Wayland Baptist gave the Drovers their 20th win of the season with an 11-3 victory.

Originally scheduled as a doubleheader, the conference teams were only able to play one game on Saturday after a two-hour rain delay before the doubleheader. They will not reschedule the game.

Starting two hours late, the Drovers got on the board in the first inning when Heath Wilda scored off a single by Zach Gonzalez.
