Farewell, Linas: AU will miss its hoops seniors

Initially, I planned on being done with The Eagle after the end of basketball season, but apparently my one reader was going to be disappointed with that, so here I am.

Basketball takes first-round game over Colgate

Andre Ingram scored a game-high 16 points and the Eagles held Colgate to 1-15 shooting from three-point range to earn a 59-44 victory in the Patriot League Tournament Quarterfinals on Wednesday night at Bender Arena.
