TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) The Wright Physical Therapy Shootout day one is complete and the College of Southern Idaho Golden Eagles get the dub against Western Wyoming.
Stepping onto the court the eagles found their groove in the first half, and their play was exactly what head coach Jared Phay could've asked.
The Golden Eagles looked sharp early, shooting 55 percent from the field and holding Western Wyoming to 30 percent.
Even heading to the locker room at the half with a 31 point lead.
The second half is where things got a little lost in translation, and the mustangs almost looked like enough steam could make for an interesting game despite the score board.
The Eagles would hold out though, taking the win 110-90.
They were lead on the night by Thomas Miles, who coach Phay was extremely impressed with post-game.
He finished with 20 points, while Roberto Gittens and Jaxon Edelmayer each added 16.
CSI will face Portland Community College Saturday night.
Portland narrowly fell to USU Eastern in overtime Friday night.
Head Coach Jared Phay says his team has a few things to work on.
"Just overall I was telling them no scoreboard watching,” Phay said. “It felt like we did a little bit of that tonight. We got up early and then kind of let up a little bit. If we want to be the team we think we can, we can't let that happen."
