Rangers fall to Drovers 82-78

CHICKASHA, Okla. - The Northwestern Oklahoma State University men's basketball team had a huge lead early but couldn't make it hold falling 82-78 against University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma on Saturday afternoon.

The Rangers dominated the first half of the game. Northwestern possessed a lead as big as 21 points early in the first half but went to the locker room with a 16-point lead 39-23.

In the second half, the Drovers slowly climbed back in to the game and took the lead with just over two minutes remaining on a dunk by Kyle Hunt, who scored a game-high 26 points on the Rangers.

NWOSU (11-16, 8-12) would not lead again in the game as the Drovers outscored the Rangers 5-0 over the next two minutes to take a 78-73 lead with 16 seconds to go.

Eze Akwari was fouled with four seconds to go and sank all three free throws to cut the Drover lead to 80-78, but USAO nailed free throws at the end of the game

Jonathan Freemyer scored a team-high 23 points while Marshall Bell added 17 points and nailed four threes in the game. Daryl Glover scored 16 to round out the Northwestern double digit scorers.

The loss is the fourth straight for the Rangers.

The Rangers will travel to Texas to take on Wayland Baptist next Thursday.

This is very exciting, for a cloupe of reasons. First, we read TriQ with a passion in those days, and it still holds its own in the bookstore racks where I encounter it. Second, it's exciting because I think I'm still waiting for an answer to a submission I sent them back in the late 1970s. Maybe now I can jog their memory!Good stuff!

I do think that universities need to organize that sort of activities regularly to give better talent.
