After a series of close, disappointing losses, it was nice to get back to winning ways for the CEU Golden Eagles. They took on Snow College for a pair this past weekend and handily beat them in both games.

On Friday the final score ended up CEU 90, Snow 78. On Saturday, it was another game and another win with the Eagles taking the contest 83-68.

With the pair of wins the Eagles moved back into a third place tie with CSI in the SWAC.

It rained threes in the first half on Friday night as both teams combined for 29 attempts. Aaron England was eight of 12 from the field. He hit seven of nine treys to give him 23 first half points. Chandler Pearson also hit a pair of three's. Cliff Colimon added another long ball. The Eagles held a 12 point edge at the break.

In the second period CEU withheld a strong comeback effort from a balanced Snow team. The Badgers had four players score double digits. The game turned into a never ending trip to the free throw line. Snow ended up with 17 of 22 and CEU went 24 of 30 from the line. England led all scorers with 28 points and made eight from downtown. The only other Golden Eagle to score double figures was Phillip Thomas with 14 points.

CEU team shot 51 percent from the field But it was the free throws that dropped in for the home team as they shot 80 percent for the game and secured a much needed conference win.

On Saturday the three's again ruled in the play as the game began. Snow's first 18 points were all from beyond the arc. Once the Eagles defense shut down the outside game, the Badgers had a hard time scoring.

The Eagles had a more balanced offensive attack and quickly took the lead for good early in the contest.

CEU dropped Snow for the third time this season and got back to a winning conference record at 7-6 and this places them in tie again with CSI for third place.

CEU meets SLCC for their final weekend of home game this Friday and Saturday. Game times are 7:30 p.m. on Friday night and 5 p.m. on Saturday at the BDAC.

It is the communities last chance to see this year's team in action.
