**For Immediate Release**
Aggies Fall to Texas A&M International, 76-66
- by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 2/9/07

Goodwell, Okla. - The Oklahoma Panhandle State men’s basketball team was in Laredo on Thursday for a tough game with Texas A&M International. Although the game started out slowly, it developed into a hot one, but it was not quite enough to give the Aggies the win as TA&MI came out on top, 76-66.

The Aggies trailed at the halftime break, 34-24, but had no intention of going away quietly in the second half, and they fought hard until the final buzzer.

OPSU’s LaChawn Anderson has been the hottest scorer in the Heartland Conference over the last few weeks and the 6’4 junior drilled in 27 points to lead all scorers. Sophomore forward Luke Ogden posted a personal career high of 22 points.

Anderson also led both teams in rebounds with eight and freshman guard Chuck Salisbury had a game high ten assists and added a pair of steals. Junior forward Will Stephenson scored nine and pulled down six rebounds.

The Aggies (6-17) will continue their road swing on Saturday night in Austin with a Heartland Conference contest against league leading St. Edward’s (17-4). Game time is set for 8:00 p.m.
