OKLAHOMA CITY – Even with three players in double figures, the Drover men’s basketball team couldn’t overcome the Mid-America Christian Evangels on the road on Saturday afternoon.
The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (3-5, 0-1) fell short with a 93-73 decision against the Evangels (6-1, 2-0) and will look for a first conference win when the Drovers return to action in 2014 on Jan. 2 at John Brown.
On Saturday, USAO newcomer Tyler Reynolds led the team with 21 points, shooting 33 percent from the field. Additionally, he recorded four steals and three assists.
CHICKASHA – With an unexpected start for both the women’s and men’s soccer programs this year, early-season adjustments led to improved play, solid records and conference honors for both teams.
The women’s soccer team fought injuries from day one and started off rough, but Alexis Vizarelis, assistant for both men and women, said the players’ extra effort and positive outlook helped the team improve.
“I’ve got to really give credit to the ladies,” he said. “They worked hard throughout the season; we clearly got better.”
