Kirkwood Community College - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Eagles overwhelm Joliet, 87-39

Kirkwood handed Joliet an 87-39 defeat in the first round of the Clarion-Kirkwood Classic Friday night at Johnson Hall.

For the third time in as many games the Eagles (3-0) simply overwhelmed their opponent.

A full-court pressure defense that smothered Joliet’s offense in combination with an efficient Eagles offense that saw 12 different players score was more than enough to put away the Lady Wolves.

No. 7 Kirkwood men open year Friday

The Kirkwood Eagles have a 6-foot-11 center from Nigeria who resembles former NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson at times with a left-handed baby hook near the basket.

Unfortunately for Kirkwood, Henry Uwadiae is academically ineligible this season and won't be able to play for the Eagles until next year.

It's doubly unfortunate, because 6-foot-8 sophomore center Matt Tiby won't play for Kirkwood in their first two games this weekend due to a violation of team rules. That leaves the Eagles a little shorthanded as they begin the new campaign.
