The Eagles lost to the Cardinals 77-65 at South Shore on Jan. 6.
Both teams came out shooting the ball well from the floor on Friday, making a number of 3-pointers in back-and-forth action.

Jake Winge led the Cardinals (9-8, 7-6 Indianhead Conference) with 18 points. Koy Nelson added 17 points, and Doug Hipsher had 15.
