Golden Eagles close out home season with a W

Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Victory for men's basketball team makes 8 in a row.

The Laramie County Community College men’s basketball team won in its home season finale 104-87 over Trinidad State Junior College Tuesday at LCCC.

LCCC led the majority of the game and had a nice 53-40 lead at the half. Early in the second half, Trinidad was able to make a bit of a push and cut the lead to single digits, but wasn’t able to take the lead. It was a very physical game with a total of 46 fouls called. The Golden Eagles were able to turn that into points by sinking 33 of 37 free-throws, icing the game. This victory extends the Golden Eagles’ winning streak to eight.

The team finishes the regular season on the road with a pair of games this weekend. The guys face Northwest at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Powell and then head over to Sheridan for a battle with Sheridan college at 5 p.m. Saturday.
