Congratulations to Coach Larry Eustachy and the Golden Eagle basketball team on making it into the second round of the C-USA Basketball Tournament and the chance to play rival Memphis for the third time this season.
After two close losses to the Tigers this season, one a last second three by Memphis, the Eagles have revenge on their minds and are excited they drew the same bracket. Both teams will be battling for a spot in the prestigious NCAA Tournament.
This is the closet the Eagles have been to the NCAA event in 20 years.
Congratulations to Gary Flowers as he becomes the first Eagle to win the Howell Trophy as the best college player in Mississippi and the first to be named to the first team all-conference team since 1994. Stay tuned for the Memphis game, and although most will be watching or listening from a far, make some noise and continue to be Loud and Proud!
