Men's Basketball - Dec 14, 2014

METROSPORTSREPORT.COM- CEDAR RAPIDS, IA-- These rematches are killing the Kirkwood men's basketball team. It happened again Saturday when the eighth-ranked Eagles blew a 16-point lead and lost to Iowa Western, 82-76, in overtime at Johnson Hall. This is the third time Kirkwood (10-3) has lost a rematch with an opponent after beating them the first time around.

The Eagles topped John Wood 84-63 in their first meeting this season, then dropped the rematch 75-65. They beat Southeastern 72-63 the first time, then got hammered 95-66 in the rematch. And now it's happened with Iowa Western.

Kirkwood poured in nineteen 3-pointers when it defeated the Reivers 95-82 two weeks ago, but the Eagles hit only three triples Saturday and let things slip away. "Defense and rebounding," said Kirkwood Coach Bryan Petersen, pointing to the two main culprits in the second half.
