CHICKASHA – USAO’s own Jahseth Lloyd added to his week’s success by being named the NAIA Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, the national office announced Tuesday.

Lloyd was selected based on his performances from Feb. 3 – Feb. 9 and was chosen out of a pool of conference and independent award winners. He was named the Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Week on Monday.

“He deserves it,” said head coach Vinson Metcalf. “If it weren’t for him, we probably wouldn’t be enjoying this success. He is one of our top players, and we’re happy for him.”

CHICKASHA– The spring brings a ton of action for Drover sports as fans get an opportunity to see the Sooner Athletic Conference postseason race heat up in basketball while watching the beginning of baseball and softball season, bringing new opponents and familiar non-conference foes.

Since August, fans who couldn’t make it out to USAO could enjoy the game via live broadcasts online, but with three spots in session and the capability to only stream one sport at a time, the spring events, which often overlap, will be scheduled with several opportunities to view each sport.
