RICHMOND, Ky. – — Lachlan Anderson hit a career-high six 3-pointers to lead the Eastern Kentucky University men’s basketball team to a 70-57 win over Southeast Missouri State University on Saturday at McBrayer Arena. At 8-2 in the Ohio Valley Conference, the Colonels are off to their best start in league play in 41 years.

The last time EKU started conference play with eight wins in 10 games was during the 1978-79 season. That squad began the OVC schedule with a 9-2 mark.

Anderson came off the bench to make 7-of-13 shots from the field, including 6-of-12 from behind the arc. He finished with a game-best and season-high 20 points.
