Eagles play final home game of season


    Today in Georgia Southern basketball, it’s all about the seniors.
    Cameron Baskerville and C.J. Reed will play their last game in Hanner Fieldhouse when the men’s team hosts Furman at 7 p.m., in Hanner Fieldhouse.
    As for the women, Meredyth Frye has a chance at history.
    Frye, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder each of the last two years, needs five points to pass the 1,000-point milestone when the Eagles play Wofford at 2 p.m., in Spartanburgh, S.C.
    Perhaps the most versatile player in GSU history, Frye has played every position from point guard to center during the last four seasons.
    “We’ve known she can score, and we’ve asked her to do it from a variety of positions,” first-year GSU coach Chris Vozab said. “Having to jump around and use her versatility to help us grow as a team this year has probably taken away from some of her opportunities to score, but she has always just cared about doing what she needs us to do to put us in the best chance to win.”
    With Frye’s career winding down, Vozab has noticed even more spring in her step.
    “She always plays hard and she’s always a competitor,” Vozab said, “but I feel like she’s just got this additional emotional energy where she’s really having fun, and her teammates are thriving off of it.”
    For the men, Reed enters the Furman game as the team’s second-leading scorer (12.8 points per game). He scored his 2,000th-career point on Feb. 16 in a loss to Charleston. Reed did most of his scoring at Bethune-Cookman, where he played the first three seasons of his career.
    Baskerville was the first GSU recruit to sign with head coach Charlton Young in 2009.
