Wayland to wrap up its regular season Saturday
PLAINVIEW — Wayland Baptist’s warm-up tops have “Team Player” written across the back of each.
For 30 minutes of game time Thursday, it appeared that philosophy might help the Pioneers survive without their leading scorer. But Royal Crouch’s absence with a hip-pointer injury eventually was too much to overcome.
Oklahoma Baptist rallied from 10 points down in the second half and upset No. 14 Wayland 85-79 at Hutcherson Center, snapping the Pioneers’ seven-game winning streak and denying them a shot to play for the Sooner Athletic Conference championship on Saturday.
