Lee hits 3-pointer, Eagles win on shot at buzzer again over Missouri Valley
2/10/2016

The final 8.6 seconds of Saturday’s rivalry game at Missouri Valley could not have played out more perfectly for the Central Methodist men’s basketball team.
Down two points, the Eagles waited as Kyle Hickey attempted his second free throw. If he made it, Central Methodist would need a 3-pointer just to send the game into overtime.


Hale’s three gives CMU back-to-back road wins, Eagles still in first place
2/10/2016

Winning on the road has been a little tougher on the Central Methodist women’s basketball team the second time through the schedule in Heart of America Athletic Conference play. But as the old cliché goes, “A win is a win.”
For the second time in as many games, the Eagles used a late 3-pointer to secure a road victory. This time, it was DaJonee Hale who made the winning shot, and it was Missouri Valley who was the victim of defeat. Hale’s 3-pointer from the right corner with five seconds remaining on the clock was the difference in an 85-82 Central Methodist victory on Saturday in Marshall.


High-octane offense: Higbee boys rattle off 95 points to beat Bucklin/Macon County

High-octane offense: Higbee boys rattle off 95 points to beat Bucklin/Macon County
It has become the norm for the Higbee boys basketball team to run its offense as quickly as possible, as if the Tigers are playing against a 10-second shot clock. So when they Tigers face a team that’s in just as quick of a rush on the offensive end, they more than welcome it.
Entering Higbee’s Courtwarming game against Bucklin/Macon County on Friday, the Tigers averaged 65 shot attempts per game, roughly one shot attempt per 30 seconds. A good night for Higbee is when the team shoots close to 40 percent from the field. When the Tigers shoot near 50 percent, it’s a great night.

Lady Bulldogs snap Higbee girls’ home winning streak
The fourth quarter seemed like it was never going to end between Higbee and Bucklin/Macon County, and that actually worked toward Higbee’s favor.
In total, 37 free throws were shot in the quarter. Bucklin/Macon County’s last 12 points came from the free-throw line. Higbee had three players foul out and two others were on the verge of reaching five fouls.
In the end, Higbee nearly overcame a 15-point deficit with three minutes to play, but the Lady Tigers saw their 12-game home win streak snap Friday night with a 74-65 loss to the Lady Bulldogs on Courtwarming night.
