Eagles overcome slow start, stay undefeated at home


STATESBORO, Ga. (WSAV) – A trip to Hanner Fieldhouse seemed to be just what the doctor ordered for the Georgia Southern men’s basketball team.

After a long road trip, the Eagles snapped a two-game losing skid and downed ULM 67-56 at home Thursday night. Georgia Southern fell behind 6-0 early, but the offense found its way and went into halftime with a double-digit lead. Isaiah Crawley finished with a team high 17 points and Elijah McCadden added 13 points of his own to pace the Eagles.

With the win, Georgia Southern moves to a perfect 7-0 at home in the 2019-20 season. The Eagles (10-7, 4-2) will host Louisiana Saturday at 4 p.m.

Sports director Greg Talbott brings you the highlights, plus postgame interviews with the players and Coach Mark Byington.
