Bball Men vs. Southwestern College


The Eastern Arizona College men's basketball team returned to action Friday afternoon when they defeated Southwestern College 83-54.

After a tie at nine early in the first half Eastern slowly took control of the game building a 44-23 half time lead. The second half saw Southwestern battle EAC even for much of the first ten minutes before the Gila Monsters made one final run to push ahead to the final margin of 29 points.

Eastern placed three players in double figures - all of whom came off the bench. Hrvoje Pervan led the team with 19 points while pulling down a career high 18 rebounds. Russ Murrey chipped in with 16 and Justin Booker added 15. Chris Booker scored 8 points while passing out 6 assists and grabbing 5 rebounds and point guard Anthony Kidd paced the offense with 7 assists.

Eastern moves to 8-4 and will have one final non-conference game on Tuesday when they play host to Madison Area Technical College. Game time is 7:30 pm MST and all of the action can be heard live via the internet at www.swsn.net.
