Eastern Finishes on High Note


The Eastern Arizona College men's basketball team ended the 2004-05 campaign with a double overtime victory Friday night when they defeated Chandler-Gilbert 75-73.

Eastern led almost the entire ball game but never could push the lead to double figures. Chandler hung around until they were able to take a one point lead with just over a minute to go in the game. EAC was able to tie the game and force overtime. EAC trailed all of the first overtime until sophomore guard Ronald Thomas hit a three with 30 seconds left to force the second overtime. Eastern was in control of the second overtime but missed three out of four late free throws and survived a desperation three by Chandler to secure the win.

The Gila Monsters placed three players in double figures led by Brandon Woods who poured in 26. Jerryck Owens-Murrey added 15 and Ronald Thomas ended the year with his best performance by scoring 12. Hrvoje Pervan led EAC with eight rebounds and Phillip Harvey paced the offense with a career high ten assists.

Eastern ends the season with an overall record of 19-11 and a 13-9 mark in the conference.

On behalf of everyone associated with the Eastern Arizona College men's basketball program I would like to thank all of you who have supported us throughout the year - it has been greatly appreciated.
