Aggie men host SWOSU, women at Harding
Cameron men get the next shot for a basketball victory against state rival Southwestern Oklahoma State University when the Bulldogs come to the Aggie Gym for a 3 p.m. matinee contest this afternoon.
The Southwestern women came to the Aggie Gym and walked away with a 98-81 victory over the CU women to go to 5-0 on the season. The Bulldog men, however, aren't playing nearly as well as their female counterparts, bringing a 1-4 record to Lawton today.

Individually, Charles Beauregard leads the Bulldogs with 15.4 points per game, while Jerry Hurt is second, averaging 14.4 points. Beauregard also leads the team with 5.2 rebounds per contest, while he and Hurt are tied for the team lead with nine assists and eight steals each.
The Aggies are 2-3 on the young season after falling to Dallas Baptist in their last game by a score of 85-79. Johann Tate had 18 points, while making five three pointers in the loss. He's now sixth in the Lone Star Conference in three-point shooting.
Cameron is averaging just over 80 points per game while shooting 49.6 percent from the field, 42.3 percent from three and 72.4 percent from the free throw line. CU is turning the ball over 13 times per game, while recording an average of 14.4 assists.

Additionally, JV Long averages 11 points and 5.2 assists per game and Tyler Williams leads the team with an average of six rebounds and is scoring 10.8 points per game.
After today's game, the Aggies will prepare for the start of Lone Star Conference action, hosting Texas A&M-Commerce Thursday and Tarleton State next Saturday.
Women at Harding
While the men are in the friendly confines of the Aggie Gym, the Cameron women will be on the road today to face Harding University at 2 p.m in Searcy, Ark.
Cameron, 2-2 on the season, is coming off a home loss to SWOSU on Wednesday. Sophomore Jamie Bonnarens had 28 points, bumping up her average to a team-leading 18.3 points per game.
