ST. DAVIDS, Pa.—Eastern Men’s Basketball fell at home in Saturday afternoon’s conference matchup against the Delaware Valley College Aggies.

The Eagles are an even 3-3 (1-1 Freedom) after the 69-56 loss.

Malcolm Garrison and Jimmie Willis were the Eagles' leading scorers for consecutive nights. Garrison shot 50 percent from the floor and finished with 12 points. Willis finished with 10 points and went 6-for-6 from the free throw line. Caleb Knudsen added eight points in the start and Jacob Clark brought in seven points off the bench. The Eagles bench scored 24 of their 56 points.

Aggies’ Francis Arnold, a quick 5-foot-8 point guard, led Delaware Valley’s offense with 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Swingman Zach Sibel 18 points on four 3-pointers and six free throws. Chris Moran added 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Aggies. 

Eastern trailed by four points with just under five minutes to play in the first half, but trailed by 12 at the half.

The Aggies’ lead escalated to as much as 24 points midway through the second half, but the Eagles continued to apply full-court defensive pressure and chipped away at that lead.

The Eagles forced the Aggies to turn the ball over 19 times. Eastern only committed 10 turnovers.

Buckets were hard to come by Saturday, as the Eagles shot a season low 33.9 percent from the floor.

Having played the first two conference games of the year, the Eagles will now play a stretch of seven non-conference games that includes two games played in Miami, Fla., on Dec. 30 and Jan. 1.
