Weather hinders Eagles

A postponement by one day proved not to be beneficial to the Georgia Southern University men’s basketball team as it fell to University of North Carolina Greensboro by a score of 68-56.

The game, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday at 7 p.m., was moved to today due to inclement weather that closed to the school.

The Eagles seemed out of place throughout the game despite leading at halftime 31-30.

Junior guard Jelani Hewitt struggled from the field connecting on a pair of shots in the sixteen he attempted as the Eagles as a team shot 31 percent.

The Spartans (12-14) outscored the Eagles in the second half 38-25 mainly because of the ability to hit from the three point line as they shot 50 percent from beyond the arc.

The loss dropped GSU down to 11-15 overall and 4-7 in the Southern conference with 5 games left in the regular season.

GSU will be back in action against Davidson College on Saturday at 2 p.m in Hanner Fieldhouse to try and prevent a four-game losing streak.
