ST. DAVIDS, Pa.--Eastern Men's Basketball jumped to an early lead in Saturday afternoon's home game against Delaware Valley College, but ultimately fell 73-61.

With the loss, the Eagles dropped to 3-7 in the conference. The Aggies, 8-2 in Freedom play, moved into a tie for first place in the conference.

Eastern's Malcolm Garrison put the Eagles on the board early, canning a 3-pointer on the Eagles opening possession. The Eagles built a 20-12 lead with 9:49 to go in the first half, but the Aggies responded with a 12-0 run to take the lead. From that point, the Aggies retained the lead the remainder of the game.

With leading-scorer Anthony Parenti sidelined for all but a minute of the action, the Eagles had no players score in double-digits Saturday. Starting big men Tyler McGrath and Kyle Malloy each scored nine, as did Matt Tyson in 13 minutes off the bench. The Eagles bench accounted for 24 of their 61 points.

Aggies' forward Daulton Derr netted 17 points while Jeremy Beckett and Jay Donovan each scored 16.

Delaware Valley shot an even 50 percent from the floor (23-for-46), while Eastern also made 23 shots, but in 62 attempts (37.1 percent). The Aggies connected on 20-of-25 free throws while the Eagles hit 12-of-21 from the stripe.

The Eagles host Misericordia on Wednesday at 8 p.m.
