The Eastern Oregon University men’s basketball team picked up an important Cascade Conference win in Quinn Coliseum Saturday.

Tony Eackles Jr. found a way to put points on the board during a 74-65 win against Corban despite an off night from the field.

The Mountaineers’ leading scorer went 4-of-15 from the floor, but went 8-of-9 from the free-throw line to score a team-high 17 points.

With the win, EOU stayed in the close to the middle of the pack in conference play, improving to 3-6. The Mountaineers are three games out of second place. 

Kevin Attila went 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point arc, and finished with 13 points. Kyllian Wood added 11 points, while Kalvin Johanson scored 10 points. Johanson also had 10 rebounds. 

Jordan Carter led the Warriors with 22 points. Cyrus Ward added 12 points, while Josiah Sebens scored 10 points.

EOU pushed the lead to 20 points with 11:51 in the second half after Brady Barrett connected on a pair of free throws. However, the Warriors cut the lead to four points, 68-64 with 1:28 left in the game following a pair of free throws by Jordan Carter. 

Deonta Edwards and Wood each hit a pair of free throws in the final 40 seconds to preserve the win.

The Mountaineers (12-7 overall) will play Oregon Institute of Technology at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Austin Kuemper had a statement game in Quinn Coliseum Friday night against the Eastern Oregon University men’s basketball team. 

The 6-foot-9 sophomore helped No. 25 Northwest Christian University pick up a 76-59 win after climbing into the NAIA Division II rankings for the first time in the school’s history. Kuemper scored a game-high 22 points, with 16 coming in the first half. The University of Oregon transfer also added eight rebounds.

Riding Kuemper, who went 5-of-7 from the floor in the first half, the Beacons built a 38-30 halftime lead.

Any chance the Mountaineers had at getting back into the game disappeared when the 3-point shots stopped falling. EOU went 5-of-13 from behind the arc in the first half, but struggled in the second half, as Northwest Christian pushed the lead to 24 points. The Mountaineers missed their first 11 shots from 3-point range, and finished 1-of-17 from behind the arc in the second half.

EOU (11-7, overall, 2-6 CCC) was led by Tony Eackles Jr. with 15 points. Trevor Phillips scored 11 points, while Kyllian Wood added 10 points. Wood finished with a double-double with 12 rebounds.

As a team the Mountaineers shot 25 percent from the floor in the second half, while Northwest Christian shot 61 percent in the final half.

Spencer Coleman added 17 points for the Beacons, while Coleton Baker scored 13 points.
