McMurry came out hot and fast, scoring eight points that OPSU did not answer until three minutes were off the clock when Bill Lee hit a two-point shot. McMurry increased their lead by as much as 14 points, but the fighting Aggies started cutting into it. With just over a minute left in the first half, Jared Messer nailed a trey to get the Aggies to within four. The War Hawks came right back, scoring eight points to take a 40-28 lead going into the half.

The Aggies had a tough time scoring in the second half and even though they never quit playing, the War Hawks had no trouble making great plays and left for home with a 76-51 victory. McMurry's Alfred Perez and A. J. Peralta led the scoring with 17 and 16, respectively, and had nine rebounds each. Bill Lee led the Aggies with 14 points followed by Kysahn Sands with 11 and Michael Patterson with nine. Sands and Damar Hill each had five rebounds.

The Aggie men face St. Edward's University at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23 in their final home appearance of the season. Chris Capinia, Damar Hill and Jared Messer will be honored as they suit up in their Aggie uniforms one last time.
