ST. JOSEPH, Mo.

It wasn't pretty, but the Western men were able to pull out a 63-61 win over Quincy on Saturday afternoon at the Missouri Western Fieldhouse.

The Western men played a nearly perfect 38 minutes of basketball. At one point, the Griffons held an 18 point lead with just three minutes to play, but had to withstand a monumental comeback, as Quincy went on 18-2 run in the game's final minutes.

Lavon Hightower led the way with 18 points, joining Seth Bonifas (10) and freshman Trey Brown (10) in double figures.

Western will now face a trio of away games starting on Tuesday, November 21 as they travel to Rockhurst. 

WESTERN WOMEN 53 - DRURY 80

No. 7 ranked Drury handed the Griffon women their first loss of the season, 80-53, on Saturday afternoon.

Drury blew the game open in the second quarter, out scoring the Griffons 24-12 as they built a 40-27 halftime lead.

Western was able to force 20 turnovers in this contest, but turned it over themselves 27 times.

Western will host the Fairfield Inn Thanksgiving Classic on November 24-25 at the Fieldhouse. They will play on November 24 against St. Mary at 7:30 p.m.

Snow showers have left the area and we saw anywhere from 2-4 inches of snow. Surface temperatures for the most part remain above freezing so accumulations were mostly on elevated and grassy surfaces. Skies slowly cleared throughout the day with temperatures warming into the mid to upper 40s. Conditions look to dry out and slowly warm throughout the next few days. Rain chances will return mainly through the morning hours on Friday with temperatures back in the 60s. Temperatures will continue to warm through the weekend with highs back in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Temperatures will be close to 80s for the beginning of next week under mostly sunny skies.
