Family Tree Game

RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ) – The EKU men’s hoops team is 2 shots away from being 8-3 and on a 5 game winning streak.

Considering just 2 guys on the roster who played DI basketball last season in Nick Mayo and Issac McGlone, that’s not bad.

The spark has come in large part thanks to freshman guard Asante Gist.

Gist is averaging 21.5 points this season. and he’s been the OVC freshman of the week 3 times.  This week, Gist was named the OVC player of the week, becoming the first freshman to win the award in 2 years..

The Colonels hit the road to Louisville Saturday.  Ties run deep in the Ville.  Eastern head man Dan McHale was a GA for Rick Pitino at UofL.

Hear from Gist in the video.
