**For Immediate Release**
Aggies Fall to Nebraska-Omaha 68-48
by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 11/26/05

Goodwell, OK - After a heartbreaking overtime loss (79-77) on the night before to South Dakota, the Oklahoma Panhandle State men’s basketball team went up against the University of Nebraska-Omaha on Saturday Night. It was the second round of the Marriot Classic in Omaha and UN-O won the contest 68-48.

The Aggies had the lead three times in the opening half, and a three-pointer by OPSU guard Kyle Smith tied the score at 19-19. However, UN-O got hot from three point range and scored 18 unanswered points to take a 37-19 advantage.

The Aggies scored the final five points of the first half, and the teams went to the intermission with UN-O leading 37-24.

OPSU, working to improve on their first half shooting, were game for a run and closed the gap to ten (42-32) on an Eddie Moss three point shot with just over 17 minutes to play. However, that was as close as they would get as UN-O shot 50% in the second half and pulled away for the 68-48 victory and raised their record to 4-4.

OPSU (0-5) was led by Smith’s 11 points, Moss scored 10 and Nick Malinowski scored eight. Juan Carson scored seven and had five rebounds.

The Aggies will travel to Bolivar, Missouri for a Tuesday night game with Southwest Baptist. They will then get a much deserved week off before they return to their home court for a rematch with Southwest Baptist on December 6th.
