By Doug Fitzgerald published November 24, 2010

GOODWELL, Okla. - Marcale Marshall had 24 points and five assists to lead the Oklahoma Panhandle State Aggies to a 79-68 victory over the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Wednesday evening at OPSU Gym.

Ben Feilmeier led the Mountain Lions (1-2) with 15 points and five assists, while Brent Jones had 13 points on 5-for-6 shooting and a team-best six rebounds. Jordan McClung added 11 points, followed by freshman Dalton Patten with nine and Luke Hristou with eight.

Two first-half runs pushed the Aggies to a 35-30 edge at the intermission. The first was a 10-point burst that turned a 14-11 deficit into a 21-14 lead with 8:55 remaining. After UCCS clawed back to tie it, OPSU ran off seven straight to go up 35-28 with 1:45 left.

The second half was more of the same. Two Feilmeier free throws helped the Mountain Lions close to within four with 16:32 left in the game, but Ray Pinckney came back with a short jumper and a three-point play followed by a Marshall jumper to extend the gap to 48-37.

Another spurt came with 13:02 remaining when the Aggies put up yet another seven straight to make it 58-42 two minutes later. UCCS worked it back to nine at 61-52 when, yes, another 7-0 run put it away for good.

Pinckney finished with 17 points and nine rebounds for Panhandle State (2-4).
