Posted on 28 February 2015 by admin

Corey_Walden_vs_Tennessee_Tech

RICHMOND, Ky. – Behind a career-high 35 points from Corey Walden, Eastern Kentucky clinched first place in the Ohio Valley Conference East Division and the No. 2 seed in next week’s league tournament with a 70-67 victory over Tennessee Tech on Saturday.

EKU (19-10, 11-5 OVC) won eight of its final nine regular season games. As the No. 2 seed in the OVC Tournament, the Colonels will play in the semifinals on Friday at 9:30 p.m. ET. The game, at Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, will air live on ESPNU.

Eastern will face the winner of the quarterfinal contest between the No. 3 seed Belmont and the winner of the No. 6 Eastern Illinois/No. 7 SIU Edwardsville first round game.

With the game tied 38-38 and 53-53, Walden stepped up with big baskets. The first time he was fouled on a three-point attempt from the right corner and hit all three free throws. With the game knotted at 53-53 and 6:05 showing on the clock, the senior drove to the basket, converted the lay-up, was fouled and made his ensuing free throw.

Walden connected on 11 of his 14 attempts from the field and with five steals tied the EKU career record for thefts. Walden has matched Jamie Ross (1988-92) with 221 career steals.

Charles Jackson’s two free throws got the Golden Eagles to within 57-55, but Eric Stutz had the answer. The senior drained a three-pointer from the right wing for a 5-point Colonel lead.

Javon McKay’s three-pointer cut the TTU deficit to one, 66-65, with 50 seconds left to play. Once again, Walden had the answer. He laid it in off a pass to the hoop from Stutz to stretch the margin back to three with 23 seconds to play. Walden capped the game by rebounding Aleksa Jugovic’s game-tying three-point attempt with 5.5 seconds left and scoring his final two points at the free throw line.

Stutz contributed 17 points and five assists. Jackson finished with 15 points and 17 rebounds for Tennessee Tech (12-18, 4-12 OVC). Torrance Rowe had 16 points and five assists for the visitors.

The Golden Eagles went 7-for-15 from three-point range in the first half, but made just 3-of-9 in the second and shot 39 percent from the field for the game. The Colonels shot 51 percent from the field.

NOTES
Seniors Robbie Stenzel, Deverin Muff, Timmy Knipp, Eric Stutz and Corey Walden were honored before the game.

Corey Walden began the day as the only player ranked in the top-10 in the OVC in scoring (2nd), field goal percentage (9th), assists (7th) and steals (1st). He finished with 35 points, five steals, two rebounds and one assist.

Corey Walden’s previous career-high was 33 points set on Nov. 26, 2014 as Southern Utah and matched on Dec. 30, 2014 at Coppin State.

With its 19th win of the season, the 2014-15 team is now tied with the 1990-91, 1986-87 and 1964-65 teams for the 10th most wins in program history.

Corey Walden now needs one more steal to break the EKU career record of 221 held by Jamie Ross (1988-92).

Eastern has shot 50 percent or better in six of its last eight games and eight times in its last 13 contests.

EKU is 39-6 in its last 45 home games.

Tennessee Tech began the day 10th in the OVC in scoring defense (69.8 ppg).

Eastern Kentucky entered the game second in the nation in turnover margin (+7.8) and fifth in steals (9.8 spg). EKU had four fewer turnovers and seven steals.

EKU now leads the all-time series 72-58 and is 43-22 against the Golden Eagles in Richmond.

Colonels one win away from No. 2 seed

Posted on 27 February 2015 by admin

IMG_0251

RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky held Jacksonville State scoreless for the majority of the final three minutes, resulting in a 63-57 victory in McBrayer Arena on Thursday.

The win kept Eastern (18-10, 10-5 OVC) on pace to win the Ohio Valley Conference East Division. With another home court victory on Saturday against Tennessee Tech, the Colonels will clinch first place in the East, the No. 2 seed in next week’s conference tournament and the double bye that comes along with it.

After D.J. Felder capped a 14-6 Gamecock run with a three-pointer to get within one, 55-54, with 2:48 left in the game, JSU didn’t score again until 18 seconds remained. #Corey Walden# hit a lay-up and two free throws, and #Denzel Richardson# made two from the stripe for six straight EKU points.

Jacksonville State (12-18, 5-10 OVC) missed two 3-pointers and two free throws in the final minute before Malcolm Drumwright made a trey with 17.7 seconds left to cut the Eastern lead to four, 61-57. Walden made two more free throws with 12 seconds remaining to seal the win.

Seniors #Timmy Knipp#, #Eric Stutz#, and Walden led the charge with 43 of Eastern’s 63 total points. Knipp and Stutz both had 14 points and five rebounds apiece. Walden had 15 points – all in the second-half – eight rebounds, and four steals.

After the halftime break the Gamecocks came out on an 8-2 run to tie the game, capped by a three-point shot from the right wing from Darion Rackley. Rackley then scored another triple to give JSU their last lead of the game, 36-35, with 14:47 on the clock.

Eastern answered with a 14-4 run, polished off by a lay-up and free throw from Walden. The Gamecocks scored just four points during a stretch of 7:18.

Despite trailing by nine, with its postseason hopes on the line, JSU didn’t fold and began its own run that would get the visitors within one with less than three minutes to play.

Jacksonville State had three players in double digits. Felder finished with a game-best with 21 points and nine rebounds. He hit on 5-of-9 three-point attempts. Rackley and Drumwright had 10 each.

The Colonels shot 94 percent (15-of-16) from the free throw line while JSU made 16.7 percent (1-for-6). EKU out-rebounded the Gamecocks by one and had five fewer turnovers.

Eastern will conclude its 2014-15 regular season on Saturday at home against Tennessee Tech. The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Senior Day activities will be held before the game.

NOTES
Corey Walden now needs six more steals to break the EKU career record of 221 held by Jamie Ross (1988-92).

EKU is 38-6 in its last 44 home games.

Eastern Kentucky entered the game second in the nation in turnover margin (+7.8) and fifth in steals (9.8 spg). EKU had five fewer turnovers and 11 steals.

The Jacksonville State bench scored one point on Thursday night. EKU received 16 points off its bench.

Eastern has won nine of the last 10 games against Jacksonville State and is a perfect 11-0 all-time against the Gamecocks in Richmond.

#12 Louisville beats Eastern Kentucky 5-2

Posted on 25 February 2015 by Bret Shroats

EKU Baseball TJ Alas

For a while it looked like a repeat of 2009. What happened in 2009? Eastern Kentucky upset nationally ranked Louisville 7-5.

Eastern Kentucky (3-4) scored first in the first inning of the game when a Kyle Nowlin single drove in Shea Sullivan.

Eastern Kentucky would hold that lead into the 4th inning when Louisville would tie the game up with a RBI single. Louisville would take the lead in the 5th on a RBI double.

A McKay double for Louisville would score two runs and make it 4-1.

Eastern Kentucky would try and fight back in the 8th when TJ Alas doubled scoring Sullivan. Louisville would get that run back in the 8th to make it 5-2.

Shea Sullivan would go 3-3 and scoring 2 runs for the Colonels. Brian Mroz started the game for the Colonels on the mound. He pitched 4.2 innings striking out 2 and giving up 2 runs.

Next up for the Colonels is Bowling Green State (1-2) in Emerson, GA. SEMO took 2 of 3 from Bowling Green two weeks ago. They were suppose to play three games vs Morehead State and one against Dayton but all were cancelled.

Softball Splits Again.

Posted on 07 February 2015 by Bret Shroats

Pittsenbarger

Similar to yesterday Eastern Kentucky went into today knowing they had two tough games and one being against a nationally ranked Alabama team. Again, they found themselves splitting the two games. This time though they would beat that nationally ranked Alabama team.

In game one Eastern found themselves battling Florida International (3-1). The Colonels and Panthers would be tied at 1-1 in the sixth inning. That’s when FIU would put the game away. FIU would score three runs in the sixth to lead them past Eastern Kentucky 4-1.

Eastern Kentucky (3-2) then would face #23 South Alabama five minutes later at their home field.

Leanna Pittsenbarger would prove she was up for the Colonels. She would give up eight hits in seven innings pitched while striking out six Jaguars. Pittsenbarger would only give up one hit in the last three innings.

Eastern would drive in the game winning run in the fifth inning. Sophomore Krislyn Campos began the frame with an infield single and proceeded to steal second base. Two wild pitches later in the inning and Eastern Kentucky leads 1-0, which would be all they needed.

The win was Eastern Kentucky’s first over a top-25 team since defeating No. 5 Missouri on Feb. 18, 2012.

Eastern Kentucky finishes play at the Sand Dollar Classic tomorrow at 11 A.M. vs Lamar (2-2).

Eastern Kentucky Softball Opens 2015 Season at 2-1

Posted on 06 February 2015 by Bret Shroats

Kayla Joyce

Despite the cold weather in Kentucky, the Eastern Kentucky softball team has warmed up in the Sand Dollar Classic in Gulf Springs, Alabama this weekend. Eastern Kentucky has started the season 2-1 with that one loss coming to #3 Alabama.

In Game one of the Sand Dollar Classic Eastern Kentucky defeated Jackson State 1-0. Junior Kayla Joyce knocked in the only run of the contest with a third-inning triple to score freshman Paige Murphy. While Leanna Pittsenbarger picked up win #1 on the season. She would face six batters in two innings while striking out five.

Hayley Flynn would come on and pitch the next three innings giving up one hit and striking out six batters. Shaylon Robb would close it out pitching the last two innings to preserve the 1-0 win.

The Eastern Kentucky softball team then split a pair of games on Friday. First game would be against #3 Alabama. Unfortunately, for the Colonels Alabama would pitcher Sydney Littlejohn would be redhot. She would throw a perfect game against Eastern Kentucky as #3 Alabama would beat the Colonels 8-0 in five innings. It is just the second perfect game in Alabama history, the first came on April 1, 2006 against Kentucky.

Eastern Kentucky would wake up offensively in game two of the day vs Houston Baptist. They would beat Houston Baptist 4-2 to advance to 2-1 on the season.

Eastern Kentucky will face Florida International (2-1) and #23 South Alabama (1-1). The game against FIU is at 1 p.m. and the game against #23 South Alabama is at 4 p.m.

Stutz Scored Career-High 27, EKU Beats Belmont

Posted on 06 February 2015 by admin

Stutz_Eric_Belmont

RICHMOND, Ky. – In a game of runs, it was Eastern Kentucky that took control of the game with a 15-4 spurt in the second half on its way to a 81-69 victory over Belmont on Thursday at McBrayer Arena.

The Bruins (15-8, 7-3 OVC), the leaders of the Ohio Valley Conference East Division, opened the second half with 10 straight points to close within one, 40-39. It took three minutes for the Colonels (13-9, 5-4 OVC) to score their first points of the half, but once Eric Stutz got it started with a lay-up EKU scored 15 of the next 19 to build a 12-point advantage.

Stutz took a pass from Timmy Knipp and thundered down the lane for a dunk. Corey Walden came up with a steal at the other end, took it to the house for a lay-up and drew the foul. His free throw capped the game-changing run and put Eastern ahead 55-43 with 12:41 left to play.

EKU essentially put the game away by extending its run to 21-7 to go in front by 15 with 9:39 remaining. Belmont got as close as six with just over four minutes to go.

“Our team did a really good job tonight of coming out with a lot of energy and playing with a lot of enthusiasm,” Eastern Kentucky Head Coach Jeff Neubauer said. “There certainly was a crowd in here tonight, really happy to see the students in here making so much noise. Best environment we’ve easily had this year.”

Stutz made 10-of-11 from the field, including 2-of-3 from three-point range, to finish with a career-best 27 points. He also had six rebounds and three steals. Walden finished with 15 points, eight assists, five rebounds and three steals.

Taylor Barnette and Reece Chamberlain scored 14 points each for the Bruins. Evan Bradds had 11 points and 12 rebounds. Craig Bradshaw, the third leading scorer in the OVC at 18.7 points per night, finished with just six on 2-of-6 shooting.

EKU shot 62 percent in the second half and 57 percent for the game. The Bruins made 53 percent of their shots but turned the ball over nine more times. Eastern out-scored BU 32-10 off turnovers.

The first half was a series of runs. With Belmont leading 5-3 early, the Colonels rolled off a 19-4 run that had the large crowd going crazy. Eastern hit three 3-pointers during the run. A triple from the right wing by Walden followed by a steal and lay-up from the senior finished it off and put the home squad in front 22-9.

Later in the half, the Bruins scored 12 unanswered to close a 15-point deficit to two. Seven of Belmont’s points came off four EKU turnovers. Chamberlain’s three-pointer made it 31-28 with 4:18 left in the first half.

Eastern had a scoring drought of 3:36 during the Belmont run, but then the Bruins went the final 4:18 scoring only one free throw. Stutz went to work inside. On headband night at McBrayer Arena, the senior who has made headwear a campus-wide trend scored six straight points. Knipp’s three-pointer with 36 seconds on the clock made it a 9-1 run and sent EKU to the locker room in front by 11, 40-29.

Knipp finished the night with 12 points.

Eastern Kentucky continues its three-game home stand on Saturday against Tennessee State. Tip-off at McBrayer Arena is set for 7 p.m.

NOTES
Eric Stutz set his previous career-high of 24 in Eastern’s previous home game, against Southern Illinois Edwardsville on Jan. 17.

These two teams began the day at the top of the OVC and in the top-12 in the nation in three-pointers per game. Belmont was seventh with 10.1 and EKU was 12th with 9.1 per game. The Bruins had 12 threes and Eastern made 10.

Corey Walden now needs 21 more steals to break the EKU career record of 221 held by Jamie Ross (1988-92).

Belmont entered the game leading the OVC in scoring at 74.3 points per game but scored 69 on Thursday.

Corey Walden began the day as the only player in the OVC ranked in the top-8 in scoring (2nd), field goal percentage (8th), assists (7th) and steals (1st). He finished with 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting, eight assists and three steals.

Belmont’s Evan Bradds began the day ranked first in the nation shooting 69.8 percent from the field. He made 5-of-6 shots on Thursday.

Eastern Kentucky entered the game second in the nation in turnover margin (+8.1) and fifth in steals (10.0 spg). The Colonels had nine fewer turnovers and grabbed 10 steals.

The series is now tied 4-4, and the Colonels have won three of the last four meetings. EKU is 3-1 against the Bruins in Richmond.

Second Half Comeback Bid Comes Up Short For EKU in Loss to TSU

Posted on 06 February 2015 by admin

Harper_Shelly_TSU

RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University’s women’s basketball team closed an eight-point second half deficit to two on three occasions, but couldn’t complete the comeback in a 68-62 loss to Tennessee State University at home on Thursday.

The Lady Tigers (9-12, 6-4 OVC) used a 16-2 run midway through the second half to turn a six-point deficit into an eight-point lead. Briana Morrow and Jayda Johnson each scored four points during the run. Johnson’s jumper with 11:27 left finished off the run and put the visitors in front 50-42.

After going 5:03 without scoring, the Colonels (8-12, 3-7 OVC) bucketed six points in 44 seconds to get within two, 50-48, with 8:34 left to play. Shameekia Murray converted a lay-up off a long transition pass from Michaela Hunter and was fouled. Her free throw polished off the EKU spurt.

Four free throws by Miranda Maples got Eastern within 62-60 and 64-62, but the Colonels could never tie or take the lead.

Murray led EKU with 15 points off the bench. She made 6-of-9 from the field, dished out three assists and had three steals. Hunter finished with 13 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

Imani Davis and Briana Morrow had 15 points each for the Lady Tigers.

Eastern shot 46 percent from the field but committed nine more turnovers. Tennessee State out-rebounded the home team by just one, but turned 11 offensive rebounds into a 12-0 edge in second chance points.

The Colonels trailed 18-17 in the first half before going on a late 11-2 run to take an eight-point lead. Hunter got it started with a lay-up and Murray followed with a three-pointer. Hunter’s basket with 3:45 remaining in the opening half made it 28-20. The Lady Tigers scored just one basket during a six-minute stretch. Eastern took a 29-25 lead into the locker room at the break.

Eastern Kentucky will face Belmont at home on Saturday at 4 p.m.

Colonels sign 13 on signing day

Posted on 04 February 2015 by admin

hood0324

 

RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky University head football coach Dean Hood announced today that 13 student-athletes will join the Colonel program beginning this spring and next fall.

The 2015 signing class includes four defensive backs, two linebackers, two defensive linemen, two running backs, one quarterback, one tight end and one kicker. The class features seven players from Florida, two from Tennessee, one from Georgia, one from Virginia, one from Ohio and one from Pennsylvania.

“This is not a big class,” Hood said. “But it certainly addresses all of our needs, looking to next year and even beyond. We graduated three all-conference players in defensive back Brandon Stanley, linebacker Tyrelle Johnson and kicker Andrew Lloyd, so there are spots to fill and some of these guys could come in and contribute immediately.”

Colonel fans are invited to Arlington for lunch on Thursday, Feb. 5 to listen to Hood’s thoughts on the 2015 signing class. The luncheon is scheduled to start at noon.

Last fall, Eastern Kentucky (9-4, 6-2 OVC) reached the FCS playoffs for the third time in seven seasons under Hood and finished second in the Ohio Valley Conference standings.

EKU is poised to return eight starters on both offense and defense for 2015. The Colonels kick off their 2015 schedule with a home Thursday night contest against Valparaiso on Sept. 3.
