Things didn’t go the way the Rhema Eagles wanted at their annual Rhema Classic tournament November 15-16 at the Ninowski Recreation Center. In the first contest, the Eagles fell 87-77 to the visiting Victory University Eagles. The next night, the Rhema squad fought hard but suffered a 103-94 loss at the hands of the Southwestern Adventist University Knights.
At the start of the season, Rhema Eagles head coach Perry Shockley said his 2013-2014 squad was the deepest he has ever worked with. He’s right. This year’s Eagles are a very athletic bunch. They're still learning how to bring their talent together on the court. And that will take more than two games.
