Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The UW-Eau Claire men's basketball team returns to conference play on Saturday, when the Blugolds visit War on 94 rival UW-Stout.
The team has enjoyed its time away from the WIAC, posting a season-best three game winning streak during the holiday break. That's helped the team improve to 7-5 on the year. Head coach Matt Siverling feels his team is rounding into form.
"I think we're starting to understand how to play better together. Hopefully that continues. The last three games have been out of conference. We know once we start conference things are going to get a bit tougher, but we can take a lot of positive things from these last three games and hopefully continue to play better," says Siverling.
It will be a double-header at Johnson Fieldhouse on Saturday. The women play at 3:00 p.m. with the men tipping off at 5:00 p.m.
