The lead changed hands 13 times in the first half as both teams fought for control of the game. The Aggies led by one with 6:18 left, but in those final minutes before half, St. Mary's outscored OPSU 14-6 and left the court ahead 42-35.

Three minutes into the second half, the Aggies tied it up at 44 all following a jump shot from Damar Hill and a three-point shot from Michael Patterson. The Rattlers responded and were ahead by 10 points halfway through the period, but Bill Lee went on a tear, scoring six quick points to cut St. Mary's lead to four. The game remained close until the final minute of play when the Rattlers put in six consecutive free throws.

Lee led the Aggie scoring with 18, going 8-11 from the floor followed by Patterson with 13 and Damar Hill with 11. Daryell Taylor and Kevin Kotzur both scored 19 for St. Mary's.

The Aggies play the University of Texas of the Permian Basin on Sat., Feb. 9 at 4 p.m. Enjoy the OPSU Homecoming festivities as well as the annual Staff Silent Auction. The women's team will be raising funds for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund as part of the Play 4Kay initiative and fans are encouraged to wear pink.
