The Eastern Kentucky University Colonels have found playing on the road a tough task so far this season. The men’s team fell to one and six away from home following an 84 to 59 loss to West Virginia Monday Night. It was a better day for the EKU women’s team and the Western Kentucky football team.
EKU led early in its game with the mountaineers of the Big 12 conference. But, a 40 to eight run for West Virginia to close out the first half was something Eastern could never recover from in the second half.
Eastern was without its leading score Jarelle Reischel, out with a back problem. Eastern takes on Manhattan College next Tuesday at home. The Lady Colonels yesterday defeated St. Francis 88 to 82 in the Gator Holiday Classic in Gainesville Florida.
And the Western Kentucky University football team took the Miami Beach Bowl with a 45 to 35 win over South Florida.
