The top-ranked Eastern Oregon University men’s basketball team continued to roll Saturday night with a 77-55 victory over Northwest Christian.

The Mountaineers (26-1, 14-1) turned an eight-point lead early in the second half into a 28-point lead en route to their 12th straight victory.

“I thought our guys played really hard defensively,” EOU head coach Isaac Williams said.

“They just played together and supported each other. So, I’m happy for them.”

The teams traded blows to start the game and were tied at 8-all three-and-a-half minutes into the game.

But EOU went on an 8-0 run to go up 16-8 and rode that momentum to take a 36-27 lead into halftime.

Northwest Christian (9-17, 3-11) only got as close as seven points in the second half before Eastern Oregon eventually pulled away.

“I think our depth kind of wore them down as the game went on,” Williams said.

“It was good to have people come off the bench and play well. 

“So, I think that was a big part of it.”

Thirteen players scored for the Mountaineers, who were led by Trent Roos with 14 points.

Anthony Brown added 10 points and six rebounds, while Tony Eackles Jr. put in nine points.

Jason Mumm, Kalvin Johanson, Zach Anderson and Graig Tucker all scored eight points.

The Mountaineers shot 47 percent from the field

The Beacons were paced by Travis Pacos with 12 points, while Greg Shepard scored 11.

The Mountaineers will play host to the College of Idaho Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Quinn Coliseum.

 

EOU 69, Corban 54

EOU defeated Corban University in Friday’s Cascade Colligate Conference matchup, 69-54 at Quinn Coliseum.

Anthony Brown led the Mountaineers with 14 points and eight rebounds. Trent Roos finished with 10 points and five rebounds, and Zach Anderson added 10 points and four rebounds.

Corban was led by Marcus Butler with 12 points, while Dustin Moore finished with 12 points.

EOU jumped out to an 8-2 lead. Eastern extended its lead to nine with 12 minutes left to play in the half. EOU took a 35-27 lead into the locker room.

 To start the second half, the Warriors closed the gap to just three points. 

The Mountaineers then went on a run to take their largest lead of the game, 48-38, with 13:21 left to play.

A three pointer by Brown followed by a blocked shot and dunk by Johanson with three minutes left to play put the Mountaineers up 64-50. Both teams would then clear their benches with just over a minute to play as the Mountaineers would go on to win their eleventh game in a row.
