A record recently fell at Eastern Oklahoma State College. 

The Mountaineers (9-0) traveled to Osceola, Ark. to take on Faith Prep Academy on Tuesday, emerging victorious, 135-94. Those 135 points broke the old mark of a 133-77 win against Hillsdale Baptist College in 2013. The all-time mark was a 144-93 victory, also against Faith Prep Academy, in November 2016.

Eastern had five players in the Tuesday win go for double figures, including Elisha Hobbs, who led the team with 32 points. That victory propelled the Mountaineers to 8-0.
