GSU winning the battle of boards
Georgia Southern forward Kyle Doyle draws a foul after a rebound while being undercut by Furman's Keith Belfield during the second half of the Eagles' 88-81 overtime victory at Hanner Fieldhouse on Thursday.
There are not many basketball teams that live up to the term “underdog” more than the Georgia Southern Eagles. They’ve played three conference games and won the rebounding battle in each game despite being undersized in all of them. The leading rebounder for the Eagles (9-9, 2-1 SoCon) is Angel Matias, a 6-foot-4, 225-pounder who plays about five inches taller than he is while pulling in 7 rebounds per game.
