Mountain Lions cant get on track in Chadron

By Nathan Gibson published February 17, 2012

CHADRON, NE - The UCCS men's basketball team played against the Chadron State College Eagles in the Armstrong Gymnasium in Chadron, Nebraska Friday night.

The UCCS men's team came in playing for pride after dropping their last eight games.  UCCS came in confident after taking care of business against Chardon State earlier in the season with a 78-73 victory in the Gallogly Events Center back in January. 

However, Friday night did not see the Mountain Lions get back to their winning ways.  The Eagles beat UCCS by a final of 76-69 dropping their record to 7-17 overall and 6-12 RMAC.

Alex Koehler and Kyle Clark led the way by scoring 15 points each. Koehler went 5-10 from three-point range and Clark chipped in 7 boards.

The Mountain Lions will travel to Kearney, NE, tomorrow to play the UNK Lopers to finish their final, regular season road trip of the year.
