The Lady Drovers pulled off an upset, beating Southern Nazarene University 62-67 – the same spread the Crimson Storm topped the Drovers in December.
And they broke a school record while they were at it.
While the Drovers had a difficult time finding the hoop at the line, they hit 60 percent of their three-point shots. By making 12, the team tied a school record for most three-pointers made in a game.
Krista Beaty, who played her first game for the Drovers on Saturday, scored 23 for USAO and had seven rebounds and one assist.
Courtney Brox also had a good night, hitting four of her five from beyond the arc. She had 12 points in the game. Brooke Smith scored 12 points and had eight rebounds also Monday night.
And Lady Drover Annitra Walls broke a school with the most assists in a game. She came out with 12 assists and five points Monday night. USAO’s win was the team’s first in conference and first win since November. The Lady Drovers go to a record of 3-12 overall and 1-6 in the Sooner Athletic Conference.
The Drover men didn’t have quite as good of a night. SNU toppled the men with a score of 72-54.
Drover Sean Cummings came out Monday night, making two field goals, two three-pointers and two free throws to be the team’s leading scorer. He also had five rebounds.
Anthony Turner led the team in rebounds with 10, and also had 11 points and two rebounds in the night.
The men fall to an overall record of 3-9 and 1-6 in the SAC.
Both teams play again at home against Wayland Baptist University on Thursday. The women tip off at 6 p.m. with the men following at 8 p.m.
