FGCU men’s basketball loses sixth straight during afternoon fundraiser

The FGCU men’s basketball team hoped to use their afternoon game to collect toys for Golisano Children’s Hospital. The Eagles also hoped to snap a 5-game losing streak, but the Eagles only accomplished one of those things.

FGCU shot 32.4 percent (23 for 71) overall, as the Colgate Raiders handed the Eagles a sixth straight loss, 74-56, in Alico Arena Sunday.

The Eagles effort was led by freshman guard Zach Scott, who scored 13 points off the bench for the first double figures of his career.

Next up: FGCU (2-8) heads to Oklahoma Wednesday, Dec. 5 to play Oral Roberts, a team that beat the Eagles 83-64 when the two programs first met last season.
