As a team the Aggies only managed to make 52.6 percent of their free throw attempts, while Calvary hit on 65.2 percent of their attempts from the line.

With an even 1-1 record on the season, Head Coach Jerry Olson offered his comments after the game, "I was pleased with how unselfish we were with the ball (15 assists). We got up quick, but then took a break at the half defensively, we didn't stay consistent. But, when you have seven freshmen, you expect a few mistakes early in the season." He spoke on individual efforts noting, "Kerr played great tonight, and Sumo can be a great one here for us; Landers also had a great night."

Thursday's game begins at 7 p.m. and Friday's contest tips off after the women's home-opener against Langston at 6 p.m. Live stats and free live video streaming for all home games is offered online at opsuaggies.com.
