USU Eastern teams look to finish strong at home

After a long season in the tough Scenic West Athletic Conference, both the USU Eastern mens and womens basketball teams are hopeful for good results heading into the season finale at home this weekend.

For the USU Eastern women, the final home stand offers an opportunity to gather momentum heading into the SWAC tournament starting next week. After two tough weekend losses to Salt Lake Community College and Snow College, head coach Dave Paur said the team will look to get past the losses which have been mentally draining on the team.

The women lost to SLCC 57-53 despite having the lead in the final minute of the game and suffered a loss the following day against Snow 61-43 in which they had a lead with 12 minutes left in the second half.

The Eastern women (14-14 overall, 6-7 SWAC) still have a chance to get a higher seed in the conference tournament in Salt Lake City next week with wins against College of Southern Idaho and North Idaho College this weekend.

For the Eastern men, the final home stand represents the last chances for them to hit the hardwood in 2011-12.

The Eastern men defeated SLCC 91-85 and fell to Snow College 88-82 last weekend. The men used a strong second half to propel them to a win over SLCC, but against Snow the team succumbed to a hot shooting Badgers team that came back after a halftime deficit.

With NJCAA sanctions banning them from participating in postseason play, the Eastern men (16-11 overall, 4-9 SWAC) will look to shock CSI and NIC in their final two games of the 2011-12 season.
