Men's basketball suffers loss at Eureka

EUREKA, Ill. -- The men's basketball team received a career high 21 points from Isiah Price, but it was not enough to overcome a Eureka unit that had redemption on their mind as Greenville fell by a 131-109 final.  During the 2016-17 season, the Panthers took a pair of three point wins over the Red Devils.

The Panthers led as late as seven minutes into the game, but Eureka took over as they led Greenville 63-47 at halftime.

Greenville's constant pressure was handled by Eureka as the Panthers could only force the Red Devils into 21 turnovers while collecting 12 steals.  Price collected three steals.

Johari Dix ended with 16 points and four assists.

Barry Nixon totaled 14 points and eight rebounds.

The Panthers only made 39-of-113 shots, including a mark of 17-of-61 behind the three-point line.

Eureka shot 48-of-83 from the field to end with a 57.8 percent mark.

Greenville (2-4, 0-1 SLIAC) hosts Westminster on Saturday at 3 p.m. in H.J. Long Gymnasium.
