The Generals started off hot against the College of Southern Idaho Golden Eagles Saturday night as they took and early 7-2 lead in the opening minutes of the game. The #13 Eagles battled back to take a 6 point lead in the final seconds of the first half, until sophomore guard Frederic Dure sank a 3-point basket as time expired cutting the deficit to 46-43 at half. A tied game at 69-69 in the second half was eventually turned into a Golden Eagle 15 point lead with 5:43 seconds remaining. A late surge by the Generals saw the CSI lead cut to 4 points before a controversial call negated an offensive rebound the Generals obtained and the Golden Eagles sank a pair of free-throws extending their lead to 6. The Generals could not string together enough late game stops and saw the Eagles walk away with a 104-99 victory. CSI improves to 7-1 on the year while the Generals fall to 8-2 on the season.
