Box Score

The University of Southern Indiana menís basketball team could not rebound from a 17-point second half deficit and stumbled at the University of North Alabama, 78-75, Saturday afternoon in Florence, Alabama. USI falls to 1-1 in 2004-05, while UNA goes to 3-0 in the young campaign.

After the Lions opened the game with a three-point field goal, the Screaming Eagles came back to take a 7-5 lead with 15 minutes to play in the first half. The Lions responded with a 13-2 run to take an 18-9 lead.

USI battled back to within one, 18-17, before UNA resumed the attack and built at 15-point half time lead 48-33.

The Lions increased their lead in the second half to 17 points on two different occasions before the Eagles began their run to get back into the game. USI used a 16-6 run to get the Lionsí lead under double-digits, 57-50 with 13:12 to play.

The Eagles continued to nibble away at the UNA lead, pulling to within a point, 66-65, with 5:43 to play. That would be as close as the Eagles would get. The Lionsí stubbornly held onto a one or two possession lead the rest of the way.
