2020-21 MEN’S BASKETBALL STANDINGS
|RV Oklahoma Wesleyan||0-1||.000||2-2||1|
It was a quiet but crazy week in the KCAC, with only three games played. A whole slate of games in the mid-week were postponed, setting up two on Friday and one on Saturday to round out the action. Hopefully, Covid postponements will be less impactful this week for the league. Stay safe and mask up everyone!
Games From This Past Week
RV Oklahoma Wesleyan def. Tabor 79-78
It was not easy for the Eagles of Oklahoma Wesleyan as they squeaked out a one-point road win over at-the-time undefeated Tabor. Brooks Haddock and Kaleb Stokes combined for over half of the Eagles’ points to help pull off the victory and avoid going 0-2 in conference. If there is any indication on how improved the Bluejays are this season, in their last two meetings with OKWU they have lost by an average margin of 41.5 points.
Kansas Wesleyan def. Bethel 71-68
AJ Range led the Coyotes with 20 points and 12 rebounds to help earn a tough road win in the KCAC over Bethel. The Coyotes responded nicely since their last game, which was over a week ago at the time to climb back to .500. The Threshers have now dropped to straight games by a combined five points after their conference-opening win over Oklahoma Wesleyan.
York def. Southwestern 82-78 (OT)
The Moundbuilders of Southwestern fought all the way back from double figures in the second half to take the lead late in the game, but a three-pointer with 0.3 seconds left from York’s Keyaun Hoskin tied the game up to force overtime, where they then hung on for their first victory of the season. York ended the night 13-29 from the three-point line compared to the Builders’ 3-17 mark. It was the first loss for Southwestern in conference play.
