In the first 11 minutes of play, the teams traded points, neither getting ahead by more than six until the Aggies went on a 31-13 run and ended the half ahead 50-32. The Mountaineers started to methodically chip into the Aggie lead in the second half and finally tied the score 76-all with three and a half minutes left to play. Damar Hill's clutch free throw shooting with two and a half minutes remaining made the difference, as he went 6-7 at the line.

Hill led the Aggie scorers with 23 points and also had five assists. Mountaineer Terrence Boyd took overall honors with 27 points, shooting a perfect 8-8 from the field, one of those for three points and an additional 10 points from the free throw line.

Trestin Clay added 20 points for the Aggies while Tavien Rosemond added 16 and contributed eight rebounds.

OPSU improved their season record to 3-3 while WSCU's dropped to 1-3.

The men play their first Heartland Conference game this Saturday, Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. at home against Dallas Baptist University. Admission to OPSU basketball games is $5 for adults, $2 for children 12 and under and senior citizens aged 65 and above. Children under five and OPSU students are admitted free.
