EKU BASKETBALL | Colonels finding success with backs against the wall

01/31/2017 07:00 PM

The Eastern Kentucky basketball team is on a much needed winning streak. The Colonels won two straight OVC East games on the road last week, beating Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech.

Those games were crucial to keeping EKU’s post season hopes alive, and head coach Dan McHale told us today that the team had its back against the wall, and was proud of how the players responded.

After five consecutive games on the road, Eastern Kentucky finally returns to Richmond for a game against Austin Peay on Tuesday night.
