EOU MEN STRUGGLE FROM THE FLOOR IN LOSS TO CONCORDIA

PORTLAND — An off shooting night hurt the Eastern Oregon men in their 84-65 Cascade Collegiate Conference loss Tuesday against Concordia.

"We had open shots around the basket," Eastern coach Art Furman said. "We had good looks from the outside. They just didn't fall."

Eastern (3-3 overall, 0-1 CCC) shot 36 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 22 times.

Furman said early foul trouble kept Larry Smith, who came in to the game averaging 30 points per game, to just two points in the first half. Smith finished the game with six.

Concordia shot 44 percent from the field and 43 percent from beyond the three-point arc.

Five Concordia players scored in double figures, led by Andre Johnson's 19 points.

After Eastern went on a run to go into the half down just 41-35, Concordia pulled away in the second half.

Eastern cut Concordia's lead to 69-60 with five minutes left, but Concordia finished the game out with a 15-5 run.

Nate Cauffman and Jason Crawley led Eastern with 13 points each. Tyree Jones chipped in 12 points.

Eastern plays at Western Baptist today.
