The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (12-13, 9-9) credits strong shooting and a comeback mentality to the victory over SCU (6-19, 2-16). After pulling ahead early, the Drovers gave up the lead with seven minutes remaining in the first half and went into halftime trailing 50-42.
From the time the second half began, the Drovers clawed their way back to secure the lead within five minutes, a lead kept for the remainder of the game even as the Eagles kept it close.
In the high-scoring game, all five starting Drovers scored in the double digits and three of them scored 20 or more points.
Jahseth Lloyd was responsible for 26 points on 12-for-18 shooting form the field. He also snatched six rebounds for the Drovers. Tyler Reynolds was close behind with 24 points, six rebounds and a team-high six assists for the Drovers.
