Eagles ready for another shot at Whitewater

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW)  The UW-La Crosse men's basketball team is in the conference tournament semifinals for just the 4th time in school history.

They will play UW-Whitewater Friday night in Whitewater.

They got there thanks to a very workmanlike win over UW-Oshkosh Wednesday night.

The eagles out rebounded the Titans 43-24 on their way to the 15-point win.

Now come the Warhawks, a team ranked 2nd in the nation.

But the Eagles handed Whitewater one of their 3 losses last month.

"It gives us a lot of confidence as well. I mean, knowing that we beat this team, we can play with these guys it's a real confidence boost for us. That's going to help a lot," said junior forward Lucas Collom.

"We have a tough challenge ahead of us. We've already proved to ourselves that we're capable of beating that team. We've got to go into their place. It will be a tough environment. But I think our guys are ready and they're up to the challenge. I like our focus and we had it tonight," said UW-L Head Coach Ken Koelbl.

The winner advances to the WIAC Championship Sunday.
