EKU Wins on Last Second Shot at Coppin State

Dec 30, 2014

The Eastern Kentucky University Colonels got a last second win Tuesday.  The winning basket came from an EKU junior playing in his hometown.  Back in Baltimore, Colonel guard Denzel Richardson hit a three pointer with less than a second to lift EKU to a 66-63 win over Coppin State.  Eastern’s Corey Walden tied his career best with a game high 33 points.  As the clock wound down, Walden was under the basket, but couldn’t get a shot off.  So, he found Richardson in the corner for the game winner.  EKU moves to seven and five on the year.  The Colonels return home this Saturday for the final

The Eastern Kentucky University basketball Colonels hit the hardwood Friday night for their first contest of the season. EKU enters this season as the defending Ohio Valley Conference Champion.


Eastern Kentucky University’s first contest in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament will likely have both teams recalling their previous match just over a month ago.  

 The E-K-U men's team takes on Southeast Missouri State Thursday evening in Nashville.  Last month, the Colonels’ Glenn Cosey hit a 40-foot bank shot with time running out to secure a one point Eastern win.
