MOUNTAINEER MEN PREVAIL IN FIRST ROUND Feb. 23, 2011 LA GRANDE , Ore. – The No. 11 Eastern Oregon University men’s basketball team advanced to the Cascade Collegiate Conference semifinals with a 53-43 win over Southern Oregon University.

taineers responded with an 11-0 run, but it was SOU that answered with an 11-4 run to cut the lead to two. Eastern was able to hold off the Raiders for the rest of the first half and take a 22-21 lead into halftime.

The Mountaineers (24-5) will play Northwest University Saturday in Quinn Coliseum at 7 p.m. The Eagles come to La Grande after sixth-seeded Corban upset thirdseeded Warner Pacific, sending Corban to Oregon Tech in the other semifinal matchup.

Southern Oregon opened the second half with a 4-2 advantage to take its first lead since the beginning of the game. EOU then took a four-point lead, but again it was the Raiders that responded and took a 31-30 lead after a Scott Tiefenthaler lay-up with 10:18 left in regulation. Eastern would regain the lead and have a 37-35 advantage with 5:25 left in the game. Over the next four minutes the Mountaineers went on a 10-0 run to provide the final cushion they needed.

Southern Oregon entered the game as the seventh seed, but it was the Raiders that controlled the tempo of much of the game. SOU slowed the Mountaineer offense down by holding possession of the ball for almost the length of the shot clock each time it had it. Eastern was held to season-lows of 53 points, 16 made field goals, and 38 field goal attempts. Eastern Oregon was led by JC Cook’s 12 points. The senior went 4 of 9 from the field, and 3 for 6 from behind the perimeter. Jason Mumm added 10 points, going 4 of 7 from the field. Anthony Brown grabbed a team-high seven rebounds. After three minutes of scoreless play, Jordan Highland opened the scoring with a Southern lay-in. The Moun

Kyle Tedder finished with a game-high 14 points leading Southern (14-16). The freshman was 5 of 13 from the field. Highland chipped in 13 points, shooting 6 for 12 from the field. He added a game-high eight rebounds. Jeff Bush threw a game-high three assists. Each team shot 42 percent from the field. EOU went 5 for 15 from behind the perimeter and Southern was 3 of 13. The Raiders finished 4 for 9 from the free-throw line, while Eastern was 16 of 27. The Mountaineers outrebounded Southern Oregon, 29-25. EOU won for the sixth straight time over the Raiders.

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – The No. 8 Oregon Tech men’s basketball team held off No. 11 Eastern Oregon University in the Cascade Collegiate Conference tournament championships, 88-83. The Mountaineers (25-6) stayed with top-seeded Oregon Tech for much of the game. In a game that featured the top two seeds in the CCC tournament, the Hustlin’ Owls’ perimeter shooting was the difference. OIT finished 11 of 19 from behind the arc, while Eastern was 7 for 18. The two programs entered the game second and third in NAIA Div. 2 in three pointers made per game and total three pointers made. Eastern Oregon fell for the 30th consecutive time to Oregon Tech in Klamath Falls, a streak dating back to Feb. 16, 1979, while OIT won its 56th straight home game. The Owls became the first team in the conference to win the tournament title three straight times. Jason Mumm recorded a career-high 28 points for EOU, scoring 19 in the first half. The junior finished 9 of 15 from the field and 3 for 4 from behind the perimeter. Josh Cottle scored a season-high 15 points, shooting 6 of 8 from the field. The senior added four assists. JC Cook grabbed a team-high seven rebounds. Tech opened the game with a 7-2 lead, before Eastern took its first lead on a Mumm three-pointer at the 11:50

Tech answered with an 8-0 run and held the lead for the rest of the game. The Mountaineers would come as close as three points three times in the final three minutes. Oregon Tech (29-4) was led by Joseph Foster’s 21 points. The senior was 6 of 9 from the field, and 4 for 5 from behind the perimeter.

WEEK EIGHT: SOUTHERN OREGON AND OREGON TECH LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARIES Eastern Oregon is one of four teams to have made it to the past four second rounds at the NAIA Div. 2 National Tournament. Two programs in those four, Oregon Tech and EOU, are from the Cascade Collegiate Conference. There are only 10 teams that have made the national tournament in each of the past four seasons, including Eastern Oregon. BASKETBALL HAS WEEKLY SHOW The Eastern Oregon University basketball programs will have their own radio talk show on Monday’s 12-1 p.m. on KUBQ 98.7 FM. Mountaineer fans can tune into 98.7 FM and listen to EOU basketball analysis, game recaps, game previews, and interviews with coaches and players. The whole hour is devoted to Eastern Oregon women’s and men’s basketball. THE TWENTY WIN CLUB Eastern had its fifth straight 20-win season in 2010-11. Before the five-year streak, the Mountaineers had four 20-win seasons in the 81-year history of men’s basketball, with the last coming in 1965-66. Last season’s squad became the 20th team to reach 16 wins in school history. The 2007-08 team had the school’s best record at 26-6. That team was 17-3 after 20 games, and started 25-4. MILES ABOVE THE REST With Oregon Tech’s win over Johnson and Wales last Saturday, Owls’ head coach Dan Miles picked up his 949th career victory in his 41st year in Klamath Falls. He trails only Harry Statham of McKendree (Ill.), the only coach in college basketball history to record over 1,000 wins. Miles is 62-17 against EOU all-time. CASCADE COLLISION The Mountaineers and Oregon Tech have had battles over the last few years. The 171st meeting between the Oregon Institute of Technology men’s basketball team and Eastern Oregon University will feature a pair of top 25 teams for only the 11th time. The Hustlin’ Owls have won 95 of the 170 games. EOU has won five of the last six meetings at home, but has not won in Klamath Falls since 1979. Tech and Eastern have finished in the top two of the CCC standings the past three seasons. They were picked one and two in the conference preseason poll this year.
