CMU climbs standings on moving week
Central Methodist men’s basketball head coach Jeff Sherman may start pleading his case to make every Eagles home game the “Blow Pop Game” at Puckett Field House.
The Eagles are now a perfect 3-0 in the annual “Blow Pop Game” following Thursday night’s 77-51 win over Graceland. The promotion honors Martha Holman and her late husband, Bill Holman, both of whom began a tradition many years ago of handing out Blow Pops to Eagles players after every home basketball game.


Yellowjackets find winning touch

Yellowjackets find winning touch
Blake Hackman didn’t take many shots for Glasgow. The 1,000-point scorer only made one field goal Tuesday night.
That wasn’t the case when the Yellowjackets faced New Franklin last month in the Glasgow Tournament semifinals. Hackman hit three straight 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to lead his team to a come-from-behind victory, scoring 23 points.
This time, the two teams met in New Franklin, and first place in the Central Activities Conference was on the line. Once again, Hackman came to the rescue for Glasgow, but not beyond the arc.
Hackman was a perfect 8-for-8 from the free-throw line in the final 2:04 and made all 10 of his shots from the charity stripe. He scored a team-high 13 points, leading Glasgow to a 59-52 come-from-behind win against the Bulldogs.

The two teams have split their first two games this season — Glasgow beat New Franklin 28-22 in the third-place game of the Glasgow Tournament — and they will meet again on Feb. 13 in Glasgow.
