It has been a season of definitive ups and downs for the Mountaineers, and an overtime loss is just another dip for a program with high hopes coming into the 2022-2023 season.


On Friday, the Mountaineers frittered away a 31-29 halftime lead and surrendered the lead in the second half. The Mountaineers tied the game at 64-64 with 1:50 left on a pair of Dylan Mackey field goals. However, despite plenty of opportunities, the Mountaineers couldn’t convert in the final 90 seconds — sending the game to overtime.

Southwestern surged in that overtime period, outscoring the Mountaineers 18-13 to seal the victory. Beau Cervantes led Schreiner with 16 points, including four 3-pointers. Kamden Ross added 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Mountaineers.

Schreiner’s continued struggles with shooting proved fatal again — the Mountaineers were just 23-of-67 shooting (34%). Southwestern turned in a 40% shooting effort, including 13 3-pointers.

Schreiner plays host to Texas Lutheran at 6 p.m.
