Men's Basketball - Fri, Nov. 12, 2010
The Golden Eagles fell behind early and trailed until 14:34 into the first half when Derek Kingshott sank a 2 point shot in the paint to tie the score at 9-9 but that would be the last lead for the Cougars as Cornerstone went on to defeat Spring Arbor 79-56 tonight.  The Golden Eagles went on a 14-4 run over the next six minutes to build the lead to 23-13.  Spring Arbor would respond with a run of their own and cut the lead to 35-31 at the half. Cornerstone started the 2nd half well and gradually built their lead back to double digits (46-36) in the first five minutes of the 2nd half.  The Golden Eagles continued to build upon their lead out scoring the Cougars 26-11 over the nine minutes of play to make the score 72-47 with 6:46 remaining.  Cornerstone was able to maintain their lead through the remainder of the game and finished with a 23 point victory (79-56) in the first game of the WHAC/MCC Challenge.

Senior Caleb Simons led the Golden Eagles with 24 points (9-11 from the floor and 6-7 from the foul line).  Bryan Pasciak scored 10 sinking 4 of 5 from the floor including 1 of 1 from behind the 3-point line and 1 of 3 from the foul line.  Justin Yoder scored 8 points and four Golden Eagles (Ronald Bates, Jake Plite, Wes Hudson, and Derek Kingshott) each scored 6 as Cornerstone used a very balanced attack to defeat Spring Arbor.

Cornerstone shot 52.8% (28-53) from the field for the game while limiting Spring Arbor to just 41.2% (21-51) in the contest.  The Golden Eagles struggled from the 3-point line dropping only 2 of 13 (15.4%) from outside the arc.  Spring Arbor didn't shoot much better making only 3 of 11 (27.3%) from long range.  Both teams shot fairly well from the charity stripe.  Spring Arbor made 11 of 12 (91.7%) but the Golden Eagles got to the line much more making 21 of 29 (72.4%) and Cornerstone dominated the boards grabbing 40 rebounds to Spring Arbor's 25. 

Cornerstone improves to 2-0 on the season and will take on Indiana Wesleyan tomorrow at 1:00 p.m.
