SANCTUARY Point product Kyle Zunic has made a strong start to his junior season with the Winthrop Eagles, helping his side record a massive 61-59 against the Saint Mary's Gaels.
The Gaels, ranked 18th in the country, couldn't make the most of their home court advantage on Monday, as they fell by two points to Zunic's Eagles.
This road victory is the Eagles second of the campaign, following their season-opening win at Chase Arena (Reich Family Pavilion) against Hatford (67-57), where guard Zunic recorded 14 points, five rebounds and two assists.
These two victories were split by a tough 77-74 loss to Fresno State at the Save Mart Centre, where Zunic, who helped the Emerging Boomers claim the bronze medal at Summer Universiade in July, added five points and six rebounds.
The Eagles have one more road game against East Tennessee State (November 14), before returning to Rock Hill for a three-game home-stand, starting with a Mid-Atlantic Christain (November 16), followed by clashes with Tennessee Tech (November 21) and Pfeiffer (November 25).
