  • Texas — For a third-straight game it was a nail-biter that came down to the wire for Lady Bulldog basketball.
    Unfortunately for Mac, this time was no different than the rest in the end as Southwestern Assemblies of God University overtook MC 46-48.
    The two teams battled to a 22-22 tie at the end of the first half, with the the low scoring affair continuing into the second.
    McPherson once again got up early but could only get in front by as many as five, letting the Lions hang around. With 7:21 showing on the clock, SWAG took the lead and didn't trail for the remainder of the game.
    Down the stretch, SWAG got up eight points but then three-straight threes by Mac pulled the Bulldogs within one with 1:20 left.
    Two turnovers and a pair of fouls by MC left the ball in the Lady Lions' hands for the final minute, allowing SWAG narrowly escape with a 48-46 win.
    It's a quick turnaround for the Bulldogs as McPherson now plays Texas Wesleyan today at 1 p.m. in the SWAG Classic.
