Grumley, a 1,000-point scorer in his Golden Eagle career, scored 29 points on 10 of 21 shooting in his final home game, and what is scheduled to be the final home game ever in what we currently know as Tippin Gym.

Renovations on the gym, which amount to basically a complete teardown and rebuild of the facility, are supposed to start at some point in March making Saturday afternoon’s contest the final one for the Golden Eagles, who fell to 3-23 overall and 0-20 in the PSAC West.

Clarion led by as many as 11 points in the second half, but Edinboro used a furious 21-8 run to regain the lead with just under 10 minutes to play.

The Golden Eagles trailed by just two points, 67-65, with about five minutes left to play, but they got no closer and the Fighting Scots held on for the victory.

Brandon Williams had a solid game for Clarion netting 16 points while freshman Maqi Watson recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The Golden Eagles close out the 2017-2018 season with two road games next week, at Gannon Wednesday and at California (Pa.) Saturday.
