Men's Basketball: Kuemper leads Beacons over Mountaineers

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.

EOU will host Corban University at 7:30 p.m. tonight.
