SAC MEN'S BB: No. 1 OBU thumps Lubbock Christian, 73-52

SHAWNEE — Chase Adams scored 21 points and David Johnson added 16 points, as No.1 Oklahoma Baptist University held Lubbock Christian University to a season-low offensive mark in a 73-52 loss by the Chaparrals Thursday night in Sooner Athletic Conference play at Noble Complex.

The two teams were slow getting their offenses flowing early and midway through the first half the score was tied 13-13. OBU then pulled away in the first half with a 12-1 run to lead 25-14 with 3:08 left in the half. The Chaps went a span of 10:39 in the opening half without a field goal. They trailed OBU 32-19 at the half. LCU was just 28% (7/25) from the field in the half and 1-for-9 from long range (11.1%). Adams led all players with 10 points in the first half.

OBU had no problem holding the lead in the second half. The Bison led as much as 54-33 (10:37 remaining) and the Chaps never produced anything more than a 6-0 run in the half. OBU never let LCU within 17 points of the lead over the final 11 minutes of the game.

The Bison shot 53.3% (16/30) in the second half and they went 48.4 % (30/62) from the field in the game. They held LCU to shoot just 35.2% from the field (19/54), and they were 20% (3/15) from long range. It was their lowest offensive numbers since a Nov.16 loss against St. Thomas (Texas), in which they were 34.5% from the field and 1-of-14 (7.1%) from three-point range. The 52 points was a season low. A.J. Luckey was the lone Chaps member in double figures, as he led LCU with 13 points.

LCU falls to 8-6 with the loss and they are now a 1-1 split in SAC play. The Chaps are 2-2 against ranked opponents this season and 2-1 against top-10 programs. OBU improves to 13-2 overall and 1-0 in SAC play.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
