USI Men’s Basketball Week 10 Notes: 

USI receives votes for a national poll. USI received votes for the D2SIDA Media Poll this week. The Screaming Eagles received votes two-straight weeks in December but has not appeared in the D2SIDA Media Poll or the NABC Top 25 Poll this year.

Eagles sweep GLVC weekend. USI posted a 2-0 GLVC weekend with a 98-78 victory over Missouri University of Science & Technology and an 85-76 thriller over Truman State University. Freshman forward Emmanuel Little recorded the Eagles’ first 20-20 game since 2014 in helping lead USI to a 98-78 victory over Missouri S&T. Little scored a season-high 29 points and grabbed a season-best 21 rebounds to become the first 20-20 Eagle since Aaron Nelson had a 24 point, 23 rebound night versus Missouri S&T January 9, 2014.

USI had to battle back from a 13-point second half deficit to defeat Truman State. Junior guard/forward Nate Hansen posted a season-high 23 points to lead the Eagles comeback win over the Bulldogs while tying season-bests with eight rebounds and two steals.
