Coach Olson and the Aggies knew they had a tough task in front of them, but were ready to step up to that challenge.

OPSU started the game out with a bang as Damar Hill recovered the tipped ball and then alley-ooped it to Tavien Rosemond for a huge dunk and an early momentum starter for the Aggies. The Fighting Tigers responded and it seemed as if it was a tennis match on the court as the scoring was going back and forth at a very quick pace for the entire first half. The Aggies went into half with a 64-62 lead.

After playing the whole first half running a full court press, the Tigers backed off and returned to regular defense, helping them regain the lead within the first minute of the second half. They kept the momentum for the next seven minutes and had their biggest lead of the night with a 79-71 advantage with 14:31 remaining. However, thanks to great defense and three consecutive 3-pointers by the Aggies, the home team regained the lead 80-79. Paul Quinn fought right back and went back up by 8 with 8:45 remaining in the ball game. OPSU came back to within one point thanks to a Krys Randolph trey and the score with 6:33 left was 94-93 in favor of the Tigers. After the leading scorer for the Tigers, Myron Dempsey, hit a layup that put them up by three, T. J. Farrell came back and tied it up with a clutch 3-pointer. The score was again tied up at 99 each with 3:09 left, but after Hill hit one of two free throws, Randolph and Brandon Caruthers hit back-to-back 3-pointers and the crowd went wild. Paul Quinn was unable to hit the shots they needed and OPSU came away with the 113-104 victory.

Krys Randolph was leading scorer for the Aggies with 24 points, but there were six total Aggies in double figures. Following Randolph was Caruthers with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Michael Patterson scored 17, Hill and Farrell both had 16, and Rosemond ended up with 14. With this victory, OPSU becomes .500 on the season with a 4-4 record. They travel to Laramie, Wyo. this weekend to take on the University of Wyoming on Saturday afternoon. Fans can follow live stats and live video of the game through the men's basketball Gameday Central page at www.gowyo.com. The next home game for the Aggies is Dec. 15 against Fort Hays State University.
