After a season which included a 10-game losing streak, a winless home game streak stretching three months and 0-6 start to Patriot League play, the Eagles ended with a 67-66 win over the Greyhounds, extending their winning streak to four and notching their ninth wins in the last 12 games.

(02/08/16 6:36pm)

After an unexpected five game win streak, AU reverted back to the underperforming team they were early in the season against the Lehigh Mountain Hawks in a game plagued by missed easy shots, long scoring droughts and flat defense.

Lehigh raced out to a 10-0 advantage in the first four minutes, and the Eagles never recovered, eventually losing 72-49.

Last night, however, AU played like a completely different team, beating Bucknell 69-55 in Bender Arena.
