Bison struggle in final home game

MOORE — Oklahoma Baptist dropped to 2-8 Saturday with a 59-24 loss to Oklahoma Panhandle State. It was the fourth loss in the row for former Southmoore coach Chris Jensen and hi Bison.

“We took advantages of some early opportunities,” Jensen said. “But it’s a long game. We don’t get to stop after 15 minutes. We couldn’t find a way to make plays and things started steamrolling on us.”

Despite the loss, several former SaberCats had solid days. WIde receiver Nyko Symonds led the team with five catches for 49 yards while defensive end Kimes Gilbert recorded 15 tackles, including 5.5 for loss.

OBU concludes the season Saturday at Texas College. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. in Tyler, Texas.

MACU men win: Just three nights after scoring a career-high 25 points, junior guard Jarius Wilson bested that with a career-best 28 points to power the Mid-America Christian University Evangels to a 99-85 victory over the College of the Ozarks Bobcats Saturday afternoon (Nov. 9) inside the Gaulke Activity Center. 

Following a slow start that resulted in the Bobcats gaining an early 11-7 lead, the Evangels found another gear and outscored COFO 24-4 over the next 7:30 for a commanding 31-15 edge.  Wilson fueled the surge with nine points during that span. 

The Evangels (2-0) carried a 52-38 lead into the locker room and quickly expanded that edge as Wilson nailed a pair of threes and Luke Mergerson scored inside to cap a 10-1 spurt that made it 64-41 with 15:42 remaining. 

After two more threes by Wilson grew the lead to 74-50, Alex Santiago scored seven points to spark a 20-8 run by the Bobcats (3-1) that cut the lead in half at the 6:50 mark. 

But consecutive buckets by Josh Minner and Reggie Davis stretched the lead back to 16 and the Evangels never allowed the Bobcats closer than 12 the rest of the way. 

Wilson shot 11-of-16 overall from the field and a perfect 5-of-5 from three-point distance. Semar Farris and Angelo Lewis each scored 16, with Farris dishing out a game-high nine assists.  Davis and Minner each reached double-figures with 11 points apiece.  Mergerson pulled down a team-high 11 rebounds.
