USI and Tiffin square off in Great Lakes Region match-up
Next three games have regional implications

Men's Basketball Game Notes

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana men's basketball team begins a series of three straight Great Lakes Region games Saturday when it hosts Tiffin University at 7:30 p.m. The USI-TU match-up is the second of the Screaming Eagles' four-game homestand to close out the 2007 calendar year.

In addition to Tiffin, the Eagles are scheduled to host Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference teams Ferris State University on December 19 and Michigan Tech University on December 30. These three games could have large implications on the first regional poll that comes out on January 23 as the GLVC and the GLIAC vie for control of the region.

On the strength of its head-to-head margin in the region last year, the GLVC was represented by six of the eight teams in the NCAA II Great Lakes Regional Tournament.

USI (4-2 overall, 1-0 Great Lakes Region) has won two in a row with its homestand-opening victory over Ohio Valley University, 94-68. Eagles' senior forward/center Norman Plummer (Cincinnati, Ohio) led the way with his fourth double-double of the year, recording 27 points and 13 rebounds.

Plummer was followed in the scoring column by sophomore guard Darren Cloud (Evansville, Indiana) with 16 points, while junior forward Anthony Pimble (Bronx, New York) rounded out the double-figure scorers with 15 points.

For the season, Plummer leads the team and ranks third in the GLVC with 21.5 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. Pimble and Cloud follow Plummer in the scoring column with 15.5 and 14.8 point per contest, respectively.

The Dragons of Tiffin (1-8 overall, 1-6 Great Lakes Region) come to the Physical Activities Center after breaking their season-opening eight game losing streak by defeating Ferris State University, 72-62. Tiffin, which is joining the GLIAC next year, is led by sophomore guard Alex Strok with 13.0 points per game.

USI leads the all-time series with Tiffin 2-0 after defeating the Dragons, 87-53, at the PAC last season. Melvin Hall led the Eagles to last year's victory with 19 points, including five three-point field goals.
