That train you heard Tuesday night coming from Ann Arbor was the Eagle Express that pulled into the station with another victory as the train just keeps on rolling down the line.
While the Skyline offense wasn’t perfectly in tune in the first half the Eagles were able to still build a 21-10 lead over visiting Lincoln and never looked back in an 83-53 win.
Skyline (12-0 overall, 5-0 in SEC RED Conference play) hosts league rival Monroe on Friday.
Skyline had some uncharacteristic turnovers in the first half against the Railsplitters. The Eagles also did not shoot a great percentage but kept up the pressure defense to hold a 40-27 lead at halftime.
Skyline started the third quarter stronger and continued to build the lead throughout the second half, switching up the defensive looks with better positioning, rebounding and settling in to a better rhythm offensively.
