(Shawnee-AP) -- U-S-A-O got 26 points from Delvan Washington and 21 from Theron Jackson to offset a 39-point performance by Oklahoma Baptist's Dejuan Brown and the Drovers held off O-B-U 93-to-89.

Sixth-ranked in N-A-I-A, U-S-A-O took an eleven point lead midway through the second half, but saw the 17th-ranked Bison tie the game at 85 with just over two minutes to play. A three-pointer by Washington and five free throws down the stretch put last night's game away for the Drovers.

O-B-U won the women's game 71-to-52.
