Aggies Hit the Road

—By Laura Nelson on 01/22/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—Both OPSU basketball teams head to Texas later this week to take on McMurry University in Abilene and St. Edward's in Austin and the men's team has a third game scheduled in Edinburg against the University of Texas-Pan American.

McMurry is still a provisional member of the Heartland Conference and the games on Thursday, Jan. 24 do not count as conference games. The women take on the women War Hawks, currently 6-10 overall, at 5:30 p.m. and the men's game will tip off about 7:30 p.m. The men War Hawks are 10-4 overall. For live stats, video, and audio options, see www.mcmurrysports.com.

The women play conference rival St. Edward's, currently 10-6 and 3-1 HC, on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m. and the men face off against the Hilltopper men, now 11-10 and 1-4 HC, at about 4 p.m. Live stats will be available for both games at www.stedwards.edu/athletics/.

The men then head south to Edinburg, near McAllen, to play the University of Texas-Pan American, an NCAA D-I school that will join the Western Athletic Conference in July. One of the Broncs' assistant coaches is Tim Anderson, a 2006 OPSU graduate who was a guard on the Aggie basketball team. In fact, Anderson was named OPSU's 2006 Male Athlete of the Year for his outstanding performance on the court and in the classroom. Live stats will be available at www.utpabroncs.com/ by choosing the men's basketball link. Live video is also available from UTPA for a fee.

Both teams return to their home court on Thursday, Jan. 31 for games against Texas A&M International.
