FAYETTE, MO -- In a rekindled rivarly, the Columbia Cougars took on the Central Methodist University Eagles for the first time in four years. In their 60th meeting all-time the Cougars took the victory on the road Wednesday night, defeating the Eagles 85-75. Columbia, ranked No. 10 in the NAIA preseason top 25 poll, improve to 3-0 on the year while Central Methodist drops to 4-2 overall.

The Cougars stumbled out of the gate tonight, falling behind 7-0 before regaining their footing to eight minutes into the contest and taking a 16-14 lead on a three-pointer by Derrick Dilworth. Dilworth would go on to contribute 15 first half points and help the Cougars to a 41-33 half-time advantage.

The Eagles wasted no time putting the pressure on the visiting Cougar squad in the minutes of the second period and knotted up the score at 43. After trading baskets for the next several minutes the Cougars went on an 8-0 run that stifled the Eagles' momentum. Columbia never looked back, pushing their lead to as many as 16 before walking away with the 10-point win.

The Cougars drained nine three-pointers on their way to victory, including three by Dilworth who finished with a career high 23 points. Tanner Sutton and Devin Griffin each added 14 points while senior Jordan Dressler wrapped up the double-digit scoring for Columbia with 12 points. Dressler also added a game-high 11 rebounds and Dilworth dished out five assists.

With the win, head coach Bob Burchard claims his 600th victory at Columbia College. In just his 25th season Burchard has averaged over 25 wins each year and sits at No. 11 in the NAIA in total wins. "In all honesty, those 600 victories belong to all the individuals and teams that have invested in the Cougar athletic depatment and in this program," said Burchard.

The Cougars return to the Arena of Southwell Complex on Friday, November 16 when they host Ottawa (Kan.) University. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
