Men's Basketball falls to Otero Junior College

Friday, January 10, 2014
With the third loss in a row, the Golden Eagles drop to 12-6.

The Laramie County Community College Golden Eagles men’s
team got back into South Sub region basketball with a road game
Wednesday, Jan. 8, against the Rattlers from Otero Junior College.

The Golden Eagles (12-6) came into the game on a two-game
losing streak and were looking to get back on track against the Rattlers, but
the Eagles were snake-bit with poor free-throw shooting. The Rattlers struck an
88-73 victory.

Golden Eagles got off to a nice a start early on and set the
tempo for the game. The Golden Eagles took a 41-40 lead into halftime.

Leading about midway through the second half, the Golden
Eagles were called for a technical foul that gave the Rattlers momentum. The
Rattlers went on an 11-0 run and gained control of the game. The Golden Eagles
were 26-62 from the field for 41.9 percent, and the Rattlers caught fire and
shot 55.2 percent from the field. The Golden Eagles shot a season low from the
free-throw line, going 16-29 for 55.2 percent. The Rattlers were 100 percent
from the line (15-15).

Sophomore Deon Edwin led the way for the Golden Eagles with
22 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and a steal. As a team, the Golden
Eagles had a season-high 18 assists on the night.

With the third loss in a row, the Golden Eagles drop to 12-6
on the year and 3-2 in the South Sub Region play. Up next, the Golden Eagles
hit the road Saturday, Jan. 11, to Trinidad, Colo., for a matchup with Trinidad
State Junior College. Tipoff is set or 4 p.m.
