Eagles cruise to easy win over CNCC

After three straight losses, the Golden Eagles were thankful for both the comfort of home, only one weekend game and a fairly easy opponent to face. All the factors combined to lead them to 103-49 victory over Colorado Northwestern Community College on Friday night.

Before the game Coach Brad Barton was very hopeful that this would be the relief his team was looking for.

"The three losses were tough. One was a blow-out (North Idaho College), but it was the game I had to sit out because of being ejected from the Salt Lake came. I'm not making excuses, but it was a tough opponent and with a different person running things, it makes it hard to stay on track. The other two games (Salt Lake Community College and College Southern Idaho) were close and we should have really won both of them," he said.

Jonathan Mills opened the scoring on his first trip down the court and the team never looked back. Between dunks and threes the offensive effort of EU was right on track. They had the Spartans down 41-23 by the half. The second period of play was more of the same as the Eagles cruised to a much needed easy win. Solid defense from EU held CNCC to only 29 percent scoring from the field.

Six players scored in double figures. Mills ended with another double-double as he was a huge force on the defensive boards with 16. He ended with 11 points and 24 total rebounds. James Kinney came off the bench to be the scoring leader for the Eagles with 18. Trevor Bamgartner, Cameron Evans and Renan Custodio contributed 14 each while Aaron Hawk-Harris finished with 12.

The team will be playing a makeup non-region game on Tuesday night against Western Wyoming at the B-DAC starting at 7:30 p.m. They then hit the road for a 7:30 p.m. game Friday at SLCC and a 5 p.m. game at Snow on Saturday.
