by Scott Puryear of Aggie Sports on 12/09/05

Goodwell, OK- The Oklahoma Panhandle State Aggies traveled to Wichita Falls, Texas for a Thursday night game with a tough team from the Lone Star Conference – Midwestern State. Though the Aggies led at the half (38-37), Midwestern pulled away in the second half and won, 76-66.

The Aggies came out very fast to start the game and played exceptionally well in the first half, shooting 58% from the field. With 4:07 left in the opening period, OPSU junior guard Kyle Smith hit a short jumper to give the Aggies a 13-point lead (36-23), but Midwestern came back strongly to trim the OPSU margin to 38-37 at the intermission.

For most of the second half, it was anyone’s game and with 7:17 to play, the Aggies trailed 59-56. Midwestern finished strongly and pulled out the 76-66 victory, raising their record to 5-2.

OPSU’s fine senior forward, Nick Malinowski, led the Aggies with 17 points and a game high 11 rebounds. Teammates Juan Carson and Eddie Moss scored 12 and nine respectively.

Midwestern’s Eric Dawson led all scorers with 26 points.

The Aggies (0-8) will head to Portales, New Mexico for a Saturday night game with Eastern New Mexico.
