1. Eagles Cruise Past Wofford, 74-53

[“We just had a really solid second half. Our first half wasn’t bad, we had an 11-point lead. The only difference was we let them get back in it. There were three or four straight bad shots that led to good shots (for Wofford) on the other end,” said head coach Jeff Price.]


2. Hanner Hooligan Tailgate set

3. Little Eagles Baseball Camp and Meet the Baseball Eagles schedule is set

[“Last year was the first year we had the Little Eagles Baseball and Meet the Baseball Camps, and the response from our fans and the Statesboro community was overwhelming. It has become a popular event at Georgia Southern already, and we are only into year two,” said Brent Jones, Director of Eagle Sports Marketing. “This is a great way to kick off the start of baseball season and get everyone ready for the spring.”]

5. Eagles scrap for big win

[“We’re a pretty talented offensive team,” said Price. “I keep getting our team to buy into that — we’re going to find ways to score. We’ve got to find a way to not trade baskets and to defend, and it was nice to see us do that.”]
