Kirkwood men fall to SCC again

Bryan Petersen has a list and he's checking it twice, but it has nothing to do with buying Christmas gifts for the Kirkwood men's basketball team.

Petersen has a long list of problems the Eagles need to solve before they can become a championship team this season.

The Eagles ran into problems Wednesday night and lost to Southeastern Community College, 70-62, at Johnson Hall for their second loss to the Blackhawks this year.

Kirkwood committed 18 turnovers, suffered breakdowns on defense, missed open shots and saw two of its top scorers combine for only four points in the ballgame.

The setback dropped the Eagles to 8-4 heading into the holidays and a three-week break before their next game on Jan 2.

"We're not coming together and obviously we're not finding the solutions," said Petersen. "And that's on us as coaches as well.

"It's frustrating to lose at home and lose in the fashion that we did."
