Men’s B-Ball holds on

The men’s basketball team at the College of Eastern Utah has gone through a tough stretch the last couple of weeks.   Two weeks ago, they battled Snow College, who stands at the top of the SWAC.   The Eagles fell in both games in Ephraim, 78-69 and 82-68, respectively.

Amazing recovery for women’s BB player

On Friday, October 24 the women’s basketball team was in a regular practice session scrimmaging against each other. As Marcy Nielson stood at high post ready to pass the ball, she was bumped from behind, the ambulance came, and practice ended early.
“My foot was planted because I was ready to pass. When I got bumped from behind my body turned one way as my foot stayed planted. My knee popped out and was hanging off to the side,” Nielson said while recounting her horrific experience.
