CHICKASHA – In a game that remained close the entire 40 minutes, the Drovers dropped to the Southwestern Christian Eagles on the road on Thursday night.
The close game saw the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (3-8, 2-6) with the 39-34 advantage at halftime.
Unfortunately for the Drovers, with 10 minutes left in the game, the Eagles (6-11, 4-5) took control. While USAO began a comeback, even coming within three points with minutes left, they were unable to secure the win, falling 78-71.
CHICKASHA – The Drovers (6-8, 3-4) are right in the middle of the season and in the middle of play in the fierce Sooner Athletic Conference. While their record might not indicate it, the Drovers are tough competitors and have upset some NAIA Top 25 teams already this season.
“I think we could be doing a little better as far as record-wise. But I think the thing that matters most is that we play our best basketball going into the conference tournament,” said Tyler Reynolds, a senior guard with the men’s basketball team. “That’s going to be what’s best for the team.”
