The Trailblazers kept the new year flame going last night with a 70- 66 victory over visiting Southeastern Illinois.
The men are now 7-6 on the season, having won their last three games.
"It was a tough game last night. SIC came out ready to play, but with hard work and solid defense we were able to hold on and come out with a win," said Head Coach Deon Thomas.
The Trailblazers were led by Aqui Shareef with 19 points and 5 rebounds. Dominique Walls had another strong game with 13 points and 11 rebounds and Princeton Steward came off the bench to have a very strong game with 15 points and 4 rebounds in 16 minutes.
"It was a very good team effort and there were a host of players that were key to this win even though it doesn't look that way in the stat books," Thomas said.
