Most Valuable Player Dion Rogers (6'0''-PG) scored a game-high 28 points to lead No. 3-seeded Texas Wesleyan to an 86-76 win over third-seeded Life (Ga.) Tuesday evening in the championship game of the 2017 Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I Men's Basketball National Championship at Municipal Auditorium. Texas Wesleyan (29-7) won its second national championship in program history, also capturing the 2006 crown with a 67-65 win over Oklahoma City in that season's championship game. Life (26-11) fell short of its fourth title in program history, claiming the red banner in 1997, 1999 and 2000. Rogers led all scorers with 28 points to earn Most Valuable Player honors for the championship, while also dishing out eight assists. Ryan Harris (6'1''-G) tallied 21 points and seven rebounds, Naiel Smith (6'4''-G) added 17 points, six assists and four rebounds, and Najeal Young (6'6''-G) posted 11 points and 10 rebounds. 'I can't explain the way I feel right now, I'm just so happy for our team,' said Rogers. 'This was our goal going into the year. It's a long season and we had a lot to accomplish on the way here. We had ups and downs, but we got through everything and reached our goal.' The defense of the Rams set the tone in the first half, limiting the Eagles to 28.6 percent shooting (8 of 28) that included a 3-of-15 clip from three-point range. Texas Wesleyan also forced nine turnovers that turned into 11 points, while posting a 21-19 rebounding advantage. Texas Wesleyan (29-7) took control of the first half over the final 4:03 before intermission, scoring the final 10 points to take a 35-23 advantage into the break. Following a jumper by Rogers, Harris converted a steal by Smith for a field goal before draining a three-pointer. Smith, who assisted on the Harris trey, finished the scoring for the half with a put-back and a single free throw. A three-pointer by Jonathan Beausejour (6'5''-F) brought Life as close as it would come in the second half, closing the gap to 49-44 with 11:02 remaining. However, Texas Wesleyan answered with 10-straight points to reclaim the double-digit advantage that remained intact for the remainder of the contest. 'We've got senior leadership and we're tough,' said Texas Wesleyan head coach Brennen Shingleton. 'It's almost as if we got in better shape as we went along. We never lost touch with who we are, and we just stayed the course.' The Rams dominated the second half at the free throw line, converting 25 of 30 attempts (.833). Rogers and Harris each knocked down 11 of 13 from the charity stripe, while Life made 17 of 22 (.773) in the entire contest. Though the Eagles managed to force 10 turnovers in the second half that turned into 18 points, the free throw discrepancy was too much to overcome. 'I think there was one team that was ready for the importance and the challenge of this moment and there was one team that wasn't,' said Life head coach Keith Adkins. 'I think Texas Wesleyan was that team who was ready. They were aggressive throughout the game. We just were not ready for it. We had our spurts to get back into it, but ultimately this was Texas Wesleyan's night and you have to give them all the credit.' Dalarian Williams (6'6''-F) tallied 25 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals for Life. Zach Landis (6'4''-G) added 21 points, 11 rebounds and three steals for the Eagles.
