Good sign for the Demons

Normally, a three-point loss (79-76) at Oklahoma State would be a bitter one for the Northwestern State Demons.

This one was different. The Demons knew they were going into an arena where they couldn't sneak in under cover. They had won there last year. Oklahoma State had five returning starters. There would be no surprises.

When the Demons got down by 19, many figured it was just what they expected.

Instead, they saw the Demons claw back into the game and briefly take a lead. They eventually lost by 3, but NSU did have a3-point attempt to tie.

I'm saying this is a good sign for the Demons this year. They probably won't find a team on their schedule more determined to beat them than Oklahoma State was on Wednesday.

And yet the Demons took them to the wire. They certainly impressed Sean Sutton, the Cowboys' coach.

"They’re a good team. I think that team’s going to win a lot of games," Sutton said.
