Following one of the toughest game stretches in the country this past fall semester, The Ecclesia men's basketball team earned their first win of the season on Saturday, defeating North American University 91-87. The Royals jumped out to an early lead in this one, but NAU made it competitive throughout. Ecclesia held a 54-43 lead at halftime. Senior Guard Dequcelan (DQ) Bagsby (Dallas, TX/Northwood University) led the way in the first half with 17 points coming from five 3s. Junior Cash Krueger (Denton, TX/Lyon College) added 15 points of his own.

Ecclesia was outscored in the second half, but held on to come out with the four point win. Krueger finished with a team high 21 points. Bagsby finished with 20. Freshman forward Noah Banks (Cashion, OK/Green Country Home School) added 16 of his own. Chris White (Smackover, AR/El Dorado HS) finished with 14 to round out the balanced scoring attack for the Royals.
