Eagles could not get out of first half hole in loss

Saint Joseph's 75, Southern Indiana 57

The University of Southern Indiana men's basketball team dug itself a hole it could not get out of and fell to Saint Joseph's College, 75-57, Thursday night at the Physical Activities Center. USI falls to 11-9 overall and 5-7 in the GLVC, while SJC goes to 13-7 overall, 9-3 GLVC.

The Screaming Eagles could not get off the ground in the contest, going scoreless in the first five minutes of the game and spotted the Pumas a 12-0 lead. The Pumas would continue to build the lead and had a 40-21 advantage at the intermission.

USI outscored the SJC, 36-35, in the second half, but was never able to go on the big run that would cut down the margin. The Eagles were hampered by poor free throw shooting, hitting just three-of-11 from the stripe.

Individually, USI sophomore forward Anthony Pimble (Bronx, New York) was the only player to reach double figures in scoring with a game-high 16 points.

In the GLVC standings, USI remained in second place in the West Division and one game ahead of third place Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. The Eagles also are two-games ahead of Quincy University, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and Rockhurst University, which are all tied for fourth in the division.

The Eagles continue the four-game homestand with their homecoming game Saturday at 3:15 p.m. against the University of Indianapolis. The Greyhounds dropped to 12-8 overall and 6-6 in the GLVC with a 81-63 loss to at Kentucky Wesleyan College on Thursday.
