Roller coaster week for the YSU men's basketball team

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - It's been a roller coaster of a week for the YSU men's basketball team.

The good news, Damian Eargle is set to return after missing a couple games with a broken nose.

The bad news, Kendrick Perry apparently injured his knee during practice and is still being evaluated. He'll be a game time decision on Saturday when the Penguins host Central Michigan.

This is a key game for YSU. A win puts them one game away from 17 on the season which should be enough to earn a postseason tournament berth.

Plus it would build momentum as they hit the road for the final two Horizon League games.

Saturday is the last time seniors Blake Allen and Damian Eargle suit up in a regular season game at home.

"Farewell, especially this year, to two guys that just have had just great careers here, and guys that i clearly appreciate and respect. Obviously you are going into two games next week that are league games that are going to lead into playoff games so you want to go into that with good momentum," said Coach Jerry Slocum.
