1. Big Second Half Lifts UTEP over Men's Basketball

[“I think we need to understand how important it is to be mentally tough on the road and we’re not there yet,” said GSU head coach Jeff Price. “We’ve got a lot of tough road games to go. We hung in there for quite awhile but they went on a spurt and I thought we caved in. We just can’t cave in in those situations. We couldn’t get back in the game.”]


2. Lady Eagles Set to Face #20 Auburn Wednesday

[The Georgia Southern Women’s Basketball team concludes a three-game in five-day stretch on Wednesday night (Nov. 19), playing host to 20th-ranked Auburn. Tipoff at Hanner Fieldhouse is set for 7 p.m.]


3. UTEP Miners glide past Georgia Southern Eagles

["Georgia Southern is a good team," Jackson said. "I got two quick fouls early and I played non-aggressive (in the first half). Coach Barbee told me to just be more aggressive."]


4. Final win gives Hatcher hope for '09

["For the first time since I've been the coach at Georgia Southern, I felt real comfortable that we were going to win the game," Hatcher said, "because defensively, we finally got it, and offensively, we were doing what I know."]


5. Hatcher Wraps up the Season

[Hatcher says, "You look at all the adversity we faced, all the things we had to overcome and then to put it all together the last game of the year, it really made for a special ending to what was a disappointing type season."]


6. Hatcher not happy about Eagles’ season being over

[“I can’t stand to sit and watch football on TV,” Hatcher said. “I’ll be sick Saturday because we’re not playing. I’ll do some yard work and something in the garage.”]
