Eastern Kentucky, under new head basketball coach Dan McHale, is off to a fast start. The Colonels have won four of their first five games, as they prepare for 1-1 Thomas More on Wednesday.

The Colonels will be heavy favorites against the smaller Saints, but McHale tells us he will not let his team take any opponent lightly.

EKU has had several players honored including wing Jarelle Reischel being voted the Player and Newcomer of the Week (he scored 37 in last Sunday’s win against Longwood), and forward Nick Mayo as Freshman of the Week.

In addition junior wing JaVontae Hawkins is the National Mid-Major Men’s Basketball Player of the Week by College Sports Madness. McHale talks about all his award winners, and his team in our latest skype with him.
