Tarleton State Tops Aggies
12/05/2013
 

Stephenville, Texas-The OPSU men's basketball team went up against the
undefeated LSC powerhouse Tarleton State University on Wednesday evening and
suffered a 55-point loss (90-35) to the No. 14-ranked Texans.

 

Bill Lee scored the first seven points for the Aggies, bringing down two
layups, a jumper, and a free throw in the first five minutes of play.
However, the Aggie baskets quickly cooled down and only seven additional
points were scored in the remaining 15 minutes of the first half; the Texans
took a 45-14 lead going into halftime. OPSU was held to 22.7 percent from
the field (5-22) and went 0-6 at three-point range in the opening half; the
Aggies shot 50 percent from the line.

 

The second half started with defensive action as T.J. Farrell grabbed a
rebound off a missed Texan three-pointer and the battle under the nets
ensued from there. In the following two minutes the Aggies tallied four
rebounds, two turnovers, three missed shots, and a foul which led to the
first timeout of the half for OPSU. Immediately following the timeout Z.
Jones sunk a shot from beyond the arc for the Aggies' first three-pointer of
the game. The Aggies went on to score 14 points in the following five
minutes, but with only 2 shots made after the 10-minute mark they were
unable to gain the momentum needed to climb ahead. OPSU improved in the
second half shooting 25 percent from the field, 23.1 percent at three-point
range, and were 2-3 in free throws. Tarleton came out with a 90-35 victory
opening their season at 7-0 for the first time in school history. The
Aggies' record falls to 0-7*.

 

Lee led the Aggies in scoring with 15 points and tied with Z. Jones in
rebounds at six apiece; Jones was second in scoring with nine points.
Tarleton took advantage of turnovers, scoring 27 points off takeaways. The
Texans' bench was very productive and brought in 57 points to the Aggies
six.

 

The Aggie men will have plenty of time to regroup and prepare for their
upcoming re-match against the 4-3 Buffaloes of West Texas A&M. The Aggies
kept it close in their last meeting with the Buffs in November (65-58) and
look to take their first win of the season in Canyon, Texas on Saturday,
Dec. 14.
