EKU BASKETBALL | Despite rough stretch, Colonels still believe

02/17/2016 11:30 AM

It has been a rough stretch for the EKU Colonels. They’ve lost two in a row and five of their past seven games. They are just 14-14 overall, 5-8 in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Colonels are in danger of missing the post season since only the top eight teams get into the OVC Tourney.

However, Eastern Kentucky still controls its fate, and Head Coach Dan McHale still believes his team has the ability to make a run. It will need to start Thursday against a very good Belmont team. The Bruins are tied for first in the OVC East, but less than two weeks ago, the Colonels upset Belmont in Nashville. Now the return match is scheduled for Thursday night in Richmond.

We spoke 1 on 1 with Coach McHale about his team’s stretch run.
