CHICKASHA – After clinching the fifth seed in the Sooner Athletic Conference tournament, the Drover men are preparing to face No. 23 Southern Nazarene for the third time this season.

The Drovers (15-13, 11-11) play the fourth-seeded Crimson Storm at 9:45 p.m. Thursday in Siloam Springs, Ark. The whole tournament will be hosted at John Brown University.

Live stream video of the tournament is available online for $7.95 per game or $24.95 for the entire tournament. USAO will be hosting a free watch party beginning 15 minutes before the game in Station 82 in the basement of the Student Center.

This will be the third time these two teams will have met this year. In the two previous games against SNU, the Drovers have come out victorious, first at home (85-75) and then on the road (77-73).

If USAO wins, they will play the winner of the No. 1 Oklahoma Baptist v. Oklahoma City game, at 8 p.m. Friday. The championship game will be on Saturday.
