The Aggie men’s basketball team battled Oklahoma Panhandle at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8 in the Aggie Gym. Cook and Foster led the Aggies in the season opener. Aggies won 85-74 over OPSU.

During the game, Cook scored 21 points with nine boards. Craig Foster made 21 points with seven boards and six assists of his own. CU struggled in a rebounding battle against the OPSU Aggies in their opener, coming up at 39-24 before the win.

“Rebounding was big for us and we challenged our guards in the first half,” Gamet said.

“We aren’t very deep in the posts…so we challenged our guards that if we get consistently every night then it will take the pressure off the big guys.”

For their second home game, the Aggies played the University of Texas of the Permian Basin at 6 p.m. on Nov. 9. CU lost 76-79, breaking their 15 home game winning streak that dated back to Jan. 2012.

During the first half of the game, CU was down by one at 32-33.  CU was up in the beginning of the second half at 34-33.

Cameron played the majority of the second half without All-American, Craig Foster, who had his fourth personal foul four minutes into the second half.

Aggies will hit the road Nov. 13 to play Northwestern Oklahoma State University.
