The 2011 Patriot League Tournament is underway, and D.C.'s own American U. Eagles are representing the city well so far. Led by Vlad Moldoveanu, the Eagles defeated the Colgate Red Raiders 69-53. Moldoveanu, the senior forward from Bucharest, scored 31 points and grabbed six rebounds tonight to lead the Eagles to victory. Junior forward Stephen Lumpkins also contributed 19 points and 15 rebounds in the win.
