TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The CSI men’s basketball team was just 4-for-31 from the floor in the first half against Northeastern Junior College, but a furious second half comeback and a game-winning layup helped the Golden Eagles overcome a double-digit halftime deficit.

Down a point with under ten seconds left, Deng Dut traveled the length of the court and made a layup with under two seconds on the clock to give CSI their first lead of the game at 68-67. A final heave from Eddie Trinkle’s Northeastern squad was no good. With the 68-67 victory, CSI moves to 2-0.

Final score: CSI 68, Northeastern 67
