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.
