CEU men fall flat against Snow

Snow College came to town on Saturday and they came to play. The crowd was decent, and those that came were shown some good playing by both teams. Michael Glover led the Eagles with 25 points and nine rebounds.

The effort put up by the team was valiant but in the end proved to be less than needed for the win. Overall the night proved to be a good show but the end result was less than welcomed. CEU ended the weekend with two losses to teams they beat at home previously. Snow ended the night with more made baskets from inside and outside. The Eagles came out for the first half and quickly lost the home court edge to Snow, the Badgers ran the floor and made no qualms about showing their ability to control the tempo. CEU tried to rally several times and started to do so until fouls switched the momentum.

The Eagles stepped up to the line more often and made more attempts. Snow had four players foul out while CEU had none. Poor ball control also hurt the Eagles as more than once missed passes or stolen balls provided Snow with an oportunity to regain momentum. The sad truth of the evening was that no matter when the Eagles tried, something seemed to slap them down, whether fouls or missed shots.

Towards the end of the game it was easy to see the frustration on the players faces as they tried to support each other and rally against a previously beaten foe. They beat Snow by 15 when they first faced them this year.

One member of the audience also tried to raise the level of support given by the crowd but most paid no attention and sat in relative silence. The final minutes were exciting with CEU getting close and Michael Glover hitting almost all his free throws. Missed shots by the Eagles proved to be their downfall and kept Snow ahead. The Eagles never seemed to find their rhythm and looked like a poor oponent at times, this in contrast to the few glimpses that the crowd saw of a fluid team playing much better than their adversary. With two losses for the weekend CEU dropped to third in SWAC standings from their height at first place before Friday.
