A not-so-funny thing happened in Oklahoma Wesleyan University’s march toward an undefeated season in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference men’s basketball game.

A stunning loss.

On Monday, Bethany (12-9, 8-7) shocked the OKWU Eagles (19-2, 14-1), 66-61, in Lindsborg, Kan.

It was a setback with major repercussions beyond the immediate stab. OKWU had just climbed to #2 in the NAIA national poll last week and was about to climb to #1.

The Eagles also saw their 15-game winning streak end.

The good news?

As Scarlett O’Hara said to herself in the final scene of Gone With the Wind, “After all, tomorrow’s a different day.”

As the Eagles continue to get healthier, they could overcome this jolt like a small bump in the road and continue their ride toward bright potential.
