Eagles lose road trip finale at #3 UIndy

INDIANAPOLIS (WFIE) -

The University of Southern Indiana men's basketball team could not complete a first half comeback and fell to the third-ranked University of Indianapolis, 84-67, Saturday afternoon in Indianapolis, Indiana. USI goes to 11-3 overall and 4-2 GLVC, while UIndy sees its record go to 15-0, 7-0 GLVC.
 
The first half did not start on a good note for the Screaming Eagles as they fell behind by as many as 13 points twice, 28-15 and 30-17, by the 7:26 mark and suffered through a five minute scoring drought midway through the half. USI would rally with a 7-0 run to cut the deficit to six points, 30-24, with 5:44 remaining before the intermission.
 
The Eagles would close to within six points twice more by the end of the first 20 minutes before the Greyhounds would take a nine-point advantage into halftime, 43-34. USI finished the half by shooting 50 percent from the field (15-30), while UIndy shot 58.6 percent (17-29) during the first stanza.
 
The second half saw the Greyhounds race out of the locker room and quickly extend the halftime advantage to 17 points, 57-40, with 14:24 left to play in the game. USI, which shot only 37 percent from the field in the second half (11-29), was never able to put together a run to challenge UIndy in the remainder of the second half and would trail by as many as 24 points.
 
For the game, the Eagles were uncharacteristically outrebounded, 37-25, and out shot 55 percent to 44.1 percent.
 
Individually, USI was led by junior forward George Edwards (Chicago, Illinois) with 19 points on eight-of-12 from the field and three-of-three from the line. Senior guard Gavin Schumann (Cincinnati, Ohio) followed Edwards in the scoring column with 18 points, while senior guard TeNale Roland (New Albany, Indiana) rounded out the double-digit scorers with 11 first half points.
 
USI returns to the friendly surroundings of the Physical Activities Center Monday at 7:30 p.m. when it hosts fourth-ranked Bellarmine University. The Knights are 13-2 and 5-1 in the GLVC after defeating Saint Joseph's College, 91-71, this afternoon in Rensselaer, Indiana.
 
The Eagles, who won all three of the meetings last year, lead the series with the Knights, 49-34, and have won 11 of the last 13 meetings with Bellarmine at the PAC.
