Ethan Eichhorst scored 21 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and Steve Artzer- ounian scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Cougars Men’s Basketball team beat Delaware Valley 73-59 Saturday January 21 at Anderson Center on Alumni day.

The Cougars got plenty of production out of their big men as reserve Cael Evans added 10 points on a perfect 4-4 shooting from the field. The Delaware Valley Aggies couldn’t handle Eichhorst, Artzerounian, and Evans underneath, as their defense struggled to contain the Cou- gars who shot a sizzling hot 57 percent from the field in the contest.

Matt Greene added 10 points on three three- pointers

in five attempts. After a tightly contested

first half, the Cougars lead 34-31. But they never trailed in the second half, answering every run the Aggies could put together, and with 10 minutes remaining MU’s Matt Greene nailed a three pointer from the top of the key to put the Cougars up 52-41.

A Jeff Slanovec breakaway layup put the game out of reach for Delaware Valley, 64- 46, with 4:30 remaining. Delaware Valley was lead by Jeremy Beckett who scored

17 points and grabbed 8 rebounds, while Jon Jernigan added 13 points.

The Cougars improve their overall record to 11-6, 3-3 in the conference. The Aggies drop to 2-14 overall, 0-6 in the conference.
