1. Eagles Prepare for Wofford, Furman in Men’s Basketball Play

[The Georgia Southern Men’s Basketball team returns to Hanner Fieldhouse for two consecutive Southern Conference games this week. The Eagles play host to Wofford on Thursday night (Jan. 22) at 7:30 p.m. followed by a Saturday night game against Furman (Jan. 24) at 7 p.m.]


2. Martz and Creighton Named Swimmer and Diver of the Week

[The Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association tabbed Courtney Martz (Woodbine, Ga.) and Katie Creighton (Snellville, Ga.) as swimmer and diver of the week respectively.]


3. Reeling Eagles hope to show sign of life against Wofford

[“I think we need to tempo the game a little bit,” Price said. “Their scoring defense is first in the league. They play a motion-pattern offense. They will push it some, but they like to be patient and that’s why they keep the score down. Obviously, I don’t think we’re the type of team right now that I think needs to be playing a half-court game and playing slow because of our liabilities inside somewhat. So, we’re going to have to find a way to get the ball up and down the floor.”]


4. Miss Waukegans are treated like queens

[For their efforts, they got to meet Chicago Bears running back Adrian Peterson. Or, as our reigning Miss Waukegan put it after discovering that the three "Misses" were sitting directly behind the Bears player in the stands, "My heart stopped for a second. He was so cool. He was like ... amazing. I expected him to be ..., but he was awesome."]


5. Sea Dawgs corral Stampede for third straight win

[Cedric McGinnis, who led the Sea Dawgs with 29 points and five rebounds, had that loss all too fresh in his mind. "Coach (Kuhl) reminded us that we had a 25-point lead and lost by three," McGinnis said. "Once we started playing hard, and playing focused, it's really hard to beat us, and that's what we did."]


6. Angels welcoming 25 players to Tempe

[Promising Hank Conger, the club's No. 1 pick in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, will be joined by fellow receivers Anel de los Santos, Ben Johnson, Alberto Rosario and Flint Wipke.]
