Evangels fall to No. 5 SAGU
The No. 5-ranked Southwestern Assemblies of God University Lions exploded for 10 threes in the second half and needed every one of them to slip past the No. 14-ranked Mid-America Christian University Evangels 95-94 in an intense NAIA Top 25 showdown Saturday afternoon (Feb. 15) inside the Gaulke Activity Center.
A three by Caleb Gentry snapped a 79-79 tie and gave the Lions the lead for good with 6:07 left, but the Evangels refused to go quietly and made things interesting down the stretch.
Down seven with 4:17 left, the Evangels scored six straight to come within one at the 2:18 mark.
But each time the Evangels got close, the Lions had an answer, this time on a three by Emmanuel Adoyi that stretched the lead to two possessions at 90-86.
