Aggies on the Road this Week

By Laura Nelson on 02/13/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—Oklahoma Panhandle State University's men's and women's basketball, softball, and baseball all play on the road this week.

The basketball teams continue conference play as they travel to Newman University in Wichita, Kans. on Feb. 14. The women, now 4-17 and 1-8 HC, take on the Lady Jets (8-13, 3-5 HC) at 5:30 p.m. The Aggie men are currently 5-18, 1-9 HC coming off last week's win over the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. Newman (17-4, 7-3 HC) shares the top spot in the Conference standings with the University of Arkansas-Ft. Smith (12-9, 7-3 HC), and the men match up with them on Saturday. The women tip off against the Lady Lions (6-15, 2-6) at 2 p.m., a team they beat 66-62 at home earlier in the season and the men's game follows at approximately 4 p.m. Live stats will be available for both games and fans can find the link on the respective schedules on the OPSU website at www.opsu.edu. A video feed will also be available for a fee at www.uafortsmithlions.com.

The baseball team, still looking for their first win, will also be at Newman for a three game series with a doubleheader scheduled for Feb. 15 and a single game on Feb. 16. The softball team (2-6) travels to Bentonville, Ark. to play in the UAM 7-State Classic hosted by the Univ. of Arkansas-Monticello. They face eight different D-II schools over the four day tournament that runs Feb. 14-17.
