2009-10 Outlook Charles E. Ramsey is hoping that the 2009-10 season will finally see his team at full strength. Now entering his fifth year as the head coach of the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team, Ramsey has had to deal with setbacks the past three years, the last two before the season even started. In 2006-07, the Eagles were cruising along midway through the season when starting point guard Carlos Medlock (6-0, 186, Sr.-Detroit, Mich.-Murray Wright) suffered a broken bone in his right foot and missed the final 12 games of the year. In 2007-08, forward Brandon Bowdry (6-6, 235, Jr.-St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor Truman), was sidelined before the season even started when he was diagnosed with a broken bone in his right foot and was out for the year. Move forward to 2008-09, and the bad breaks continued, this time with Medlock, a preseason first-team All-Mid-American Conference West Division selection, receiving the news that his broken right foot would require surgery for the second time in his career, forcing him to miss the entire season. Despite all of those literal bad breaks, the Eagles perservered and managed to finish each year on a positive note, including finishing in a tie for second in the MAC West Division in 2008-09. And now the Eagles will prepare for the 2009-10 season with both Medlock and Bowdry healthy to go along with seven other lettermen and a cast of five talented recruits, two from the juniorcollege ranks. Bowdry was named second-team All-MAC in 2008-09 after averaging 14.8 points, seventh best in the league, and 7.2 rebounds, good for the sixth-best MAC effort. Front line teammate Justin Dobbins (6-8, 245, Sr.-Cleveland, OhioGlenville) joins Bowdry after finishing 23rd in the MAC in scoring (10.0) and 18th in rebounding at 5.0 per game. Although missing the entire season with his re-broken foot, Medlock is expected to return to post 2008-09 form when he earned honorable mention All-MAC honors after averaging 14.8 points and 2.0 triples a game. Medlock, Bowdry and Dobbins continue to move their way up the EMU men’s bas6

ketball record boards. Medlock enters his medical redshirt senior year with 1,032 career points, good for the 23rd spot in school history while his 215 career rebounds is tied for 80th. Medlock is also a dangerous three-point threat with 138 career triples, good for eighth in the EMU record book. Dobbins is ranked 44th in school history with 776 points and 41st in rebounding at 399 while Bowdry is currently 49th in scoring at 725 points and tied for 39th in rebounding with 403 career caroms. Other lettermen returning to the fold and being counted on to make improvement from last season are forwards Will Cooper (6-6, 180, Jr.-Detroit, Mich.Pershing-Brigton Academy), Branden Harrison (6-7, 175, So.-Houston, TexMilby) and Kamil Janton (6-10, 230, So.-Tarnow, Poland-Chicago Bartlett) along with guards L.J. Frazier (5-10, 170, So.-Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) and Antonio Green (6-3, 195, So.-Inkster, Mich.-Robichaud). Cooper was named the team’s Earl Boykins Defensive Player of the Year recipient last season and finished ninth in the MAC in blocked shots with 0.78 per game. Cooper contributed offensively with a 2.9 scoring average and a 3.2 rebound mark. Green came on strong late in his freshman season in 2008-09 and was named the team’s Harold Simons Most Improved Player after scoring in double figures in five of his last six games. Green averaged 3.9 per game. At Central Michigan, Feb. 28, Green hit a trio of free throws in the final seconds to lead the Eagles to a one-point victory, 57-56, over the Chippewas. Frazier was called on to run the point guard position as a redshirt freshman last year when Medlock was lost for the season and he started 22 of 32 games. He was 10th in the MAC in three-point field goal percentage at 36.5 (42-of-115) and led the team in assists with 2.0 a contest. Harrison and Janton both saw limited action as true freshmen last year, but are being counted on for more playing time in 2009-10. Ramsey is excited about the potential of his incoming recruiting class. Highlighting that group are junior college standouts Jay Higgins (6-6, 205, Jr.-Fayetteville, N.C.-Hillsborough C.C.) and Quintin Dailey (6-3, 175, Jr.-Las Vegas, Nev.Sheridan C.C.). NCAA DIVISION I TOURNAMENT 1987-88 • 1990-91 • 1995-96 • 1997-98

Higgins averaged 17.0 points and 5.0 rebounds at Hillsborough while Dailey averaged 12.2 ppg. and 3.5 rpg. and will both help improve EMU’s three-point shooting output. The other three recruits, freshmen, Matt Balkema (6-10, 290, Fr.-Roseville, Mich.-Warren Cousino), J.R. Sims (6-3, 180, Fr.-Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) and Jamell Harris (6-8, 200, Fr.-Euclid, OhioEuclid) are all expected to contribute immediately. Balkema and Harris should both be in the mix on the front line in both scoring and rebounding. Balkema averaged 15 points and 9.6 rebounds and Harris checked in at 17 points and 7 rebounds as prep seniors. Sims will offer backcourt help after averaging 15 points and 4 rebounds in his senior year of high school. The Eagles also added a preferred walk-on, local Saline H.S. guard product Jake Fosdick (6-2, 170, Fr.-Saline, Mich.Saline). After beginning the 2009-10 season at home with an exhibition match-up with Concordia, the Eagles head down the road to Rochester, Mich. for a non-conference tilt against the Golden Grizzlies from Oakland University for their official season opener. The team will then make the trek to Springfield, Mo. for the Hispanic College Fund Classic, Nov. 20-22. The team will square off against the Citadel, Nov. 20, before taking on the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore and Missouri State University, Nov. 21 and 22. EMU will play its first official regular season home game Nov. 28 when it hosts Davenport for an afternoon tilt at 2 p.m. The Eagles open up MAC play on the road when they head to Kalamazoo to play Western Michigan University, Jan. 9. EMU plays its final regular season home game March 8 when it hosts the Chippewas from Central Michigan University for a MAC West tilt. The first round of the 2009 MAC Tournament will begin March 7 at campus locations throughout the league. The quarterfinals through the championship game will be held March 11-13 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

I have always had a great deal of respect for the University and the basketball program, which has had a commitment to both academics and athletics. I can truly say I am home now.” And not only did Ramsey begin his return on a positive note, directing his young Eagles to a 67-65 win over the University of California-Berkeley in his first game as an intercollegiate head coach, he also set in motion his plan to return the EMU program to a place of prominence in the Mid-American Conference. After that thrilling career coaching opener against California, the Eagles went on to finish the year with a 7-21 record. Included in that record was the fact that the Green and White lost seven games by five points or less, displaying the competitive spirit Ramsey expects from his team every time it takes the court. Under Ramsey’s leadership the Eagles have improved every season except one. In his second year at the helm, Ramsey saw his young Eagles make vast improvements, recording a 13-19 overall record and a 6-10 MAC mark in 2006-07. The Eagles continued to improve in 2007-

08 and made the season a memorable one with a tie for second in the Mid-American Conference West Division race with an 8-8 record, the best league finish for the Eagles since the 1995-96 team won the division title on the way to a regular-season and MAC Tournament championship. In the 2007 MAC Tournament, EMU won its opening round game, the first tournament win for the Green and White since the 1998 championship game. The Eagles then fought No. 1 seed Toledo to the final horn in game two before bowing by eight points, 62-54. Ramsey’s Eagles backed that post-season performance up in 2007-08 with a first-round win over Ball State before the Green and White bowed to Western Michigan in the second round.

In 2008, Ramsey had three seniors earn National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Honors Court accolades. Seniors Tyler Jones, Wendale Farrow, and Zane Gay were all selected to the Honors Court after completing their eligibility in 2008-09. Farrow had a 3.27 GPA as a communications major while Gay posted a 3.24 GPA as a finance major and Jones had a 3.20 GPA as a sport management major. In all, a total of 12 players have graduated from Eastern Michigan University under Ramsey since his arrival in 2005. Jones, Gay, Farrow, and former EMU standout Jesse Bunkley, each earned degrees from the University last year. “There is no doubt that the first four years were a learning experience for our players

and a rebuilding process for our coaching staff,” Ramsey said. “I think that only makes us stronger as we bring Eastern Michigan back to the top,” Ramsey said. “A series of unfortunate injuries over the past four years have been difficult to overcome, but our players have all stepped up to the task of elevating their play. We played a lot of young men the last four years and, combined with two very strong recruiting classes, we feel that we are poised to make a big impression on the Mid-American Conference in 200910.” The veteran head coach has enjoyed making himself and the men’s basketball program become very active in community outreach. The team has scheduled regular visits to local hospitals to cheer up patients, and has assisted with reading programs in the elementary schools. The men’s basketball program has also had a major role the past four years in helping make the “Score for Kids Jamboree,” a fund-raiser to assist the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern Michigan Huron Valley Chapter, a huge success. Ramsey has also volunteered for the past three years to serve as a celebrity waiter at the annual Meals on Wheels “Spring Fling” fundraiser. Ramsey’s ties to the Ypsilanti community were also rewarded in 2008 when he was named to the Ypsilanti High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Prior to accepting the head coaching du-

ties at EMU, Ramsey sharpened his coaching and teaching abilities while working and learning from some of the top coaches in the high school and college ranks. As a young football, basketball and baseball player at Ypsilanti High School, Ramsey first developed a passion for watching and learning about the intricacies of coaching from boys’ head basketball coach Dick Ouellette and boys’ baseball coach and assistant football coach Patrick Dignan. Ramsey was honored by his alma mater by being inducted into the Ypsilanti High School Athletic Hall of Fame in a special ceremony held during the 2008 football season. A 1979 YHS graduate, Ramsey went on to attend Fisk University from 1979-81 where he was named to the league’s All-Freshman team. He then transferred to EMU and went on to complete his bachelor’s degree in 1992 with a major in sociology. While an EMU undergraduate, Ramsey was an assistant boys’ basketball coach at Ypsilanti H.S. from 198287. To this day, Ramsey serves on the Board of Trustees for the Ypsilanti Public Schools Foundation. From the high school ranks Ramsey went on to enjoy great success as an assistant coach in college basketball. During his undergraduate career Ramsey served as a volunteer coach at EMU under Head Coach Ben Braun from 1990-93. He joined the EMU staff as a full-time assistant from May-Sept. 1996, before leaving to assist

Braun when he became the head coach at the University of California-Berkeley. As a volunteer assistant coach in 1991, EMU advanced to the Sweet 16 of the 1991 NCAA Tournament. He was part of the EMU program from 1990-93 before moving on as an assistant coach to help Tennessee State University win the Ohio Valley Conference title and advance to the 1994 NCAA Tournament. While at Tennessee State, Ramsey coached his first of several future professionals by helping develop Carlos Rogers into a lottery pick by the Seattle Supersonics. In his first year at Cal for the 1996-97 campaign, Ramsey was instrumental in helping the Bears post their best overall record since 1960 (23-9), as they reached the Sweet 16 of the 1997 NCAA Tournament. In 2001, he helped the Bears once again be selected for the NCAA Tournament with a 20-11 record. He was also a part of two Cal NIT teams, including the 1999 squad that captured the NIT championship. Ramsey was instrumental in recruiting Sean Lampley, the 2001 Pac-10 Player of the Year and Cal’s all-time leading scorer, and Joseph Shipp, the No. 3 all-time leading scorer. Other notable Bears mentored by Ramsey included 1997 Pac-10 Player of the Year and Atlanta Hawk lottery selection Ed Gray, Sacramento King draftee Michael Stewart, future NBA players Sean Marks, of the Phoenix Suns, Francisco Elson, of the world-champion San Antonio Spurs, as well as NFL All-Pro tight end Tony Gonzalez. Ramsey’s track record of success for developing players and team success afforded him the opportunity to work as an assistant coach at the University of Michigan from 2001-05. While an assistant at Michigan for four seasons Ramsey helped the Wolverines turn in two consecutive top 10 nationally-ranked recruiting classes, and helped coach the U-M team that won the 2004 NIT championship. Additionally, Ramsey helped develop 2003 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and current Miami Heat guard Daniel Horton. Other Wolverines to develop into professionals under Ramsey’s guidance include NBA player Bernard Robinson, Jr. as well as young men to play professionally overseas such as Chris Young and Lavell Blanchard. Ramsey carried his history of mentoring future professional players into his first season at EMU as Eagle center John Bowler developed into a first-team All-MAC performer and is currently playing professionally in Germany. The 48-year-old (3-25-61) Ramsey and his wife, Allison (Lester) Ramsey, live in Ypsilanti with their two sons, Charles (Tre) and Chandler.

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located

Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, seven miles east of Ann Arbor, 40 miles west of Detroit and just 20 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport. It is an area rich in academic, research, technological and recreational resources. The University also has sites in Livonia, Jackson, Traverse City, Flint, Detroit and Monroe. EMU’s 800 plus-acre main campus of scenic flora and wooded areas includes 18 miles of walkways and jogging trails and has 122 buildings throughout the academic and athletic campuses. Eagle Crest – Eastern Michigan’s conference center, golf course and resort – is located on the banks of nearby Ford Lake. Recently named “A Cool City,” by Michigan’s Governor Jennifer Granholm, Ypsilanti plays a leading role in industry and education. The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique

In 1849, with the passage of Act No. 138, the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Michigan formally paved the way for the establishment of Michigan State Normal School, with the exclusive purposes of instructing persons in the art of teaching; providing a good common school education; and giving instruction in the mechanic arts, husbandry, agricultural chemistry and the laws of the United States. Since its inception, Eastern Michigan, first as a Normal School, then as a College and finally as a University, has grown and developed to respond to the ever-changing needs of society. Over the years, EMU has educated thousands of sons and daughters of Michigan, the nation, and the world. The University currently serves nearly 22,000 students who are pursuing undergraduate, graduate, specialist, doctoral and certificate degrees in the arts, sciences and professions. In all, more than 200 majors, minors and concentrations are delivered through the University’s Colleges of Arts and Sciences; Business; Education; Health and Human Services; Technology, and its graduate school. Eastern Michigan’s exceptional faculty, students and alumni include CEOs from major businesses; a National Student Teacher of the Year, National Teacher of the Year, numerous Fulbright Scholars and Milken Family Foundation National Educators award winners; and several Michigan Teachers of the Year. EMU is regularly recognized by national publications for its excellence, diversity, and commitment to applied education.

Enrollment Profile

EMU’s Economic Impact

Since its founding in 1849, Eastern Michigan has provided quality services to the residents of Ypsilanti, Washtenaw County, the State of Michigan and other states and nations. EMU’s total impact on the Michigan economy of an estimated $3 billion annually reflects a return of more than $30 for each dollar received from the state. The University’s total impact on the Michigan economy results in a contribution of $115 million in state tax revenue. Thus, EMU’s impact on state government tax revenue is $1.25 in taxes for each dollar received from the state.

Our History

1897: MSNS is the first U.S. teacher’s college to become a four-year institution.

When the state of Michigan was just 12 years old, Michigan State Normal School was designated by the state legislature as the first institution to educate teachers to serve the public schools. The University thus began, somewhat humbly, as the sixth teacher education institution in the nation. A campus that today comprises more than 800 acres was once a four-acre plot with one building and two programs of study – a classical course and an English Course. The school’s name has changed several times ­– to Michigan State Normal College in 1899; to Eastern Michigan College in 1956; and finally to Eastern Michigan University in 1959. During its first 100 years, the institution certified thousands of teachers and developed the broad-based curricula that ultimately prepared it for university status. Within that new university, three colleges emerged: Education, Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School. The University has since expanded three more times; adding the College of Business in 1964, the College of Health and Human Services in 1975 and the College of Technology in 1980. More recently Eastern Michigan has developed Extended Programs that include Continuing Education, the Centers for Corporate Training, the World College and numerous community-focused institutes. The University has enhanced its learning environment through structural initiatives during the past several years. Recent construction includes the Terrestrial and Aquatic Research Facility (1998), the Convocation Center (1998), the Bruce T. Halle Library (1998), the John W. Porter College of Education Building (1999), the Everett L. Marshall College of Health and Human Services Building (2000), the Village residence hall (2001), University House (2003) and the Student Center (2006).

Ypsilanti is a city in Washtenaw County with a population of 22,362. Originally a trading post established in 1809 by Gabriel Godfroy, a FrenchCanadian fur trader from Montreal, a permanent settlement was established on the east side of the Huron River in 1823 by Major Thomas Woodruff. It was incorporated into the Territory of Michigan as the village Woodruff’s Grove. A separate community a short distance away on the west side of the river was established in 1825 under the name “Ypsilanti”, after Demetrius Ypsilanti, a hero in the Greek War of Independence. Woodruff’s Grove changed its name to Ypsilanti in 1829, and the two communities eventually merged. Henry Ford and the automotive industry came to Ypsilanti in the 1930s and beautiful Ford Lake was created to generate hydroelectric power for the manufacturing plants. During World War II, Ypsilanti became home to the Willow Run Bomber Plant, a factory that would employ 100,000 workers.

Sports Medicine

The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine Department has a long history and reputation for excellence in the health care of student-athletes and the education of athletic training students. Founding practitioners Gary Strickland, Ron Venis and Dr. Wally Roeser envisioned a goal of first-class prevention, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries for all student-athletes. Although the department continues to grow, its primary mission remains the same. More than 500 student-athletes participating in intercollegiate athletics receive comprehensive health care from an expansive sports medicine team. The Eastern Michigan University Sports Medicine staff is led by Dr. Wally Roeser and head athletic trainer Steve Nordwall. Additionally, the staff consists of two primary care sports medicine fellows, three full-time staff athletic trainers, two full-time athletic training clinical educators, five graduate assistant athletic trainers. Our sports medicine staff works in conjunction with various medical professionals within the community who provide nutritional, dental, vision and other specialized services for our student-athletes. At Eastern Michigan University, the philosophy of the Sports Medicine staff is two-fold: to provide a high standard of medical care through effective preventive and management

programs, and to facilitate an effective post-injury rehabilitation process for a safe return to competition. In all cases, the ultimate well-being of each studentathlete is considered our number one priority, not only while they compete at Eastern Michigan University, but during their lifetime as well. The Sports Medicine staff oper- Head Athletic Trainer Steve Nordwall, ates out of three campus athletic MS, ATC training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building. Each of the athletic training facilities contain taping and practice preparation areas, treatment and rehabilitative equipment, and physician exam areas that allow for daily, on-campus physician care for athletic injuries and illnesses. Our facilities provide an appropriate environment for Head Orthopedic Team Physician the care of our student-athletes and serves as a proper clinical Wally Roeser, M.D. education venue for our athletic training students In the fall of 1997, the Athletic Education Training Program became accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. Students who are accepted into the education program must demonstrate not only excellence in the athletic training room, but in the classroom as well. The academic workload of the education Orthopedic program is based heavily in the sciences and Team Physician includes courses in human anatomy, physiolBruce Miller, M.D. ogy, physics, chemistry, biomechanics, kinesiology and exercise physiology. Academic and clinical instructors monitor the athletic training students as they progress through the required course work which includes five clinical experience courses. In their final semester each athletic training student completes a 15-week internship at an affiliated internship site. Upon completion of the program, all athletic training students must pass the national certification examination prior to advancing into their Neurologist careers or continuing on in their education as Jeffrey Kutcher, M.D. an athletic trainer. It is our ongoing mission to constantly reevaluate the roles and responsibilities of our program in order to best exceed the expectations and needs of our student population. The interaction between the sports medicine staff, the student-athletes and the athletic training education program creates a productive atmosphere which enhances both the student-athlete experience and athletic training students’ clinical education.

Strength and Conditioning An eagle by definition is a large bird of prey noted for its strength, size, keenness of vision and powers of flight. These are skills that can only develop in the right setting and environment. At Eastern Michigan University, it is the job of head strength and conditioning coach Mike Szerszen to guide student-athletes down the path that will help them develop those and other skills that will allow them to excel in competition. The main focus of the EMU strength and conditioning program is to develop the complete student-athlete. This is achieved through a program that is not based solely on weight training, but rather on the development of all aspects of athletic performance. Everything that is incorporated into the training program is geared towards enhancing success on the playing field. Areas of focus include speed, agility, strength, quickness, flexibility, explosive power, sports nutrition and mental toughness. One major area of focus is the development of running speed and quickness. Great focus is placed on strength development, flexibility and proper running mechanics. The goal is to produce strong physical athletes who improve their foot speed and quickness. While every athletic program lifts during the year, EMU student-athletes will also participate in year-round conditioning. The strength and conditioning staff push the student-athletes to excel throughout a continually physical and mentally demanding program. “We believe highly competitive athletes should never get out-of-shape,” Szerszen said. “Our workouts are intense and designed to challenge our student-athletes to surpass levels they have not yet achieved. Because of this aggressive training we help develop not only a physically tougher athlete, but also a mentally tougher one who excels in competition. Our goal is simple ... to be the best conditioned and physically toughest team in the country.” Physically developing student-athletes is a year-round endeavor. During the season, football players at EMU will spend as much time with the strength and conditioning coaches as they do on the field with their position coaches. “A highly motivated athlete is a program’s greatest asset,” Szerszen said. “We strive for excellence both mentally and physically. We have individual goal meetings prior to each segment of our training. Short and long-term goals are set and we work diligently to achieve them. “Our athletes at EMU are second to none in terms of their hard work and effort,” Szerszen added. “We work hard, but have fun in the process. The camaraderie and work ethic they develop in the weight room carries over directly to their success in competition.” Strength and conditioning at EMU is a full-time commitment. There is no such thing as being a part-time champion. At EMU, the eventual goal of all athletes is to be successful on the MidAmerican Conference and national level. Through our hard work and commitment to excellence, we believe we can achieve that goal.”

Conditioning

Strength Training

This is the foundation of all of our training. Improvements in all areas begin here. We use systematic periodic planning when developing our strength program. We use many compound movements and isolate muscle groups with machines and specific dumbbell exercises. We focus on working many different joint angles. We use as many different training variables and a mix of training philosophies to attain our goals. By training in this manner we can avoid being one-dimensional which will help us eliminate plateaus and staleness in training. Core lifts include: bench press, squat and hang clean. Many injury prevention exercises are implemented as well.

Speed and Agility

We believe speed and agility drills should be utilized every time we work out. We incorporate some form of speed or agility drills into every workout. The reason for this philosophy is to provide constant reinforcement so that we can achieve maximum speed and quickness. Speed and agility is separated into long and short distances. Several examples of speed drills include resistant runs with harnesses and chutes, stance and start drills, running mechanics, form running and competitive sprints. Some of our agility drills include: cone drills, speed ladders, dot and t-drills, 20-yard shuttles, ladder runs, reactive drills, jump rope and quick feet drills.

EMU Strength Training Philosophy “The philosophy here at EMU is to train the student-athlete in an organized and systematic manner to develop all elements of athletic performance. Training is performed in a highly intense manner which develops a high level of mental toughness and pride to be the best.” – Mike Szerszen

NCAA DIVISION I TOURNAMENT 1987-88 • 1990-91 • 1995-96 • 1997-98

We believe that great student-athletes should never get out-of-shape and because of that we condition year-round. Of course, the intensity of the conditioning will be dictated by what we are doing during that period of training or at that point in the season. During the season, conditioning will be short and brief as it will be during the winter conditioning period. During the summer preseason training period, conditioning will be very intense as we prepare for the season and as we acclimate for the heat of two-a-day practices during August. Forms of conditioning include: 1.5 mile run, 110-yard sprints, step down sprints ranging in distances from 100 yards to 10 yards, position specific conditioning, gassers and half gassers, and 300-yard shuttle and ladder runs. All conditioning runs have goal times that the student-athletes must meet.

Goal Setting and Evaluation

Student-athletes will set individual goals for the end of winter conditioning, summer conditioning and the post-season. Each athlete has his own personal goal booklet to monitor gains. The goals are used as a method of monitoring the studentathlete and providing them with a target to attain in training to help improve their performance on the field. Student-athletes will be tested three times a year. These tests help our staff evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Testing will include the following at various points in the year: bench press, squat, hang clean, vertical jump, 1.5-mile run, 16 x 110 yard sprints, 15 second bag jumps, 20-yard shuttle, 10-yard sprint, 225-lb bench press reps max, body fat percentage, sit and reach flexibility, height and weight.


Student-Athlete Support Services While success on the field is important, success in the classroom is the number one priority. Student Athlete Support Services (SASS) is dedicated to the academic success of the Eagles. Led by Erin Burdis and her staff of counselors, SASS strives to make sure every student-athlete finds academic success at Eastern. Our philosophy is to offer an academic support program, integrated with the University, that will assist all student-athletes with their transition into college. This all-encompassing support continues throughout each student-athlete’s collegiate career, until the day he or she receives a diploma, lands a job or enters graduate school. Being proactive rather than reactive, our staff does not wait for an academic crisis to occur. We gather important background information and build an academic profile on each studentathlete, assessing his or her needs in advance. Services provided through SASS include the following: programs that focus on student-athletes’ special needs, monitoring academic performance, providing learning assistance, assisting with registration procedures, assisting in monitoring athletic eligibility, providing priority registration and making sure that athletes are advised about current NCAA, MAC and University rules and regulations. Freshmen and transfer student-athletes encounter a major transition when making the switch from high school or community college to a university. These students, while adjusting to their new routines, receive extra attention and support. College is not easy, but with hard work and dedication from both the student-athlete and the support staff, the student-athlete can have a successful college experience. The success of Eastern’s student-athletes hinges on their willingness to seek assistance from SASS as well as other University student services. SASS staff members continually refer student-athletes to the admissions office, Academic Advising Center, Career Services Center, health services, the records office, financial aid and The Holman Learning Center. Faculty members also provide assistance to student-athletes through advising in course selection and providing additional help with courses when requested.

EMU director of athletics Derrick Gragg explained. “We are very proud of our student-athletes’ work in the classroom and will continue to support them as they move forward to reach the ultimate goal of graduating.” “Obviously, our staff and student-athletes work closely to make sure that a major emphasis is put on the academic success for our teams and this 2009 winter report is the proof that all of that hard work is paying off,” said Student-athletes from the men’s and women’s basketball Erin Burdis, EMU’s Director teams joined forces for the fourth annual EMU Pride Day in of Student-Athlete Support the summer of 2008.

The athletics department cumulative GPA is currently at 3.060 after the 2009 winter semester. The swimming & diving team leads the men’s teams with a 3.228, while the gymnastics team leads the women’s side with a 3.543. “We feel that academic achievement is the cornerstone of the student-athlete experience,”

The Eastern Michigan University Office of Athletics Compliance is committed to a comprehensive compliance program that educates student-athletes, prospective studentathletes, institutional employees, community members and boosters about the importance of adhering to NCAA, Mid-American Conference and institutional rules. The commitment to compliance ensures institutional control over the department of athletics. The existence of a successful compliance program depends on the willingness of coaches, administrators, staff, student-athletes and boosters to be cognizant of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules.

ONCE A BOOSTER ALWAYS A BOOSTER. Once an individual is identified as a booster, the person retains that identity forever! This is true even if the individual no longer contributes to, or is involved with, EMU's athletics program.

WHAT IS COMPLIANCE? At Eastern Michigan University, the Office of Compliance works within the department of athletics and the University to ensure EMU's compliance with all applicable NCAA, MAC and institutional rules. In doing so, the compliance office is charged with the following tasks: • Educating administrators, coaches, staff, prospective student-athletes, current student-athletes and boosters about NCAA, MAC and institutional rules; • Developing monitoring systems to ensure compliance with NCAA, MAC and institutional rules (e.g., recruiting, academic eligibility, financial aid, awards and benefits, amateurism and agents); • Investigating and reporting violations of NCAA, MAC and institutional rules.

WHAT IS AN EXTRA BENEFIT? An extra benefit is any special arrangement by a EMU employee or booster to provide a prospect, student-athlete or their relatives or friends a benefit not expressly authorized by the NCAA. Examples of impermissible benefits include, but are not limited to, the following: • Gifts of cash, clothing, equipment or any other tangible item; • A special discount, payment arrangement or credit on any purchase or service; • Loan of money or co-signing of loans; • A vehicle, use of a vehicle, or any transportation expenses; • Free or reduced-cost services, purchases or rentals; • Entertainment on- or off-campus; or • Free or reduced-cost rent or housing.

ARE YOU A BOOSTER? You are a booster if you are or ever have: • Been a member of a booster organization that supports EMU athletics (e.g., EMU Athletic Club, E-Gridiron Group); • Made any financial contributions to the athletics department; • Been involved in promoting EMU's athletics program; • Been a season ticket holder; or • Provided benefits to enrolled studentathletes or their relatives or friends. You can become a booster if you provide benefits to prospects, student-athletes, their relatives or friends and any of the following statements are true: • The relationship between the athlete (or parents of the athlete) and the individual providing the benefits developed as a result of the athlete's participation in athletics or their reputation as an athlete; • The relationship began only after the athlete become a prospect; • The relationship began only after the athlete had achieved notoriety due to his or her athletic ability or reputation; • The pattern of benefits increased after the athlete attained notoriety as a talented athlete.

NCAA DIVISION I TOURNAMENT 1987-88 • 1990-91 • 1995-96 • 1997-98

WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete (prospect) is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade, students enrolled in preparatory schools and two-year colleges are also considered prospects. An individual remains a prospect even after he/she signs a National Letter of Intent.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES? EMU is responsible for the actions of its boosters. If a booster provides an impermissible benefit to a prospect, student-athlete, their relatives or friends, EMU may be subject to penalties from the NCAA and Mid-American Conference. When a violation occurs, regardless of intention, it can: • Jeopardize the eligibility of prospective and current student-athletes; • Result in the EMU athletics program being penalized by the NCAA and/or the Mid-American Conference; and • Cause you to lose benefits or privileges associated with the athletics department (i.e., booster club membership, ticket privileges). QUESTIONS? The above information is a brief overview of compliance and rules pertaining to boosters and their interactions with prospective student-athletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, MAC or institutional rules, please contact the Dr. Melody Reifel Werner at 734.487.2327 or mreifel@emich.edu.

Convocation Center

The Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, in its 11th season as the crown jewel of EMU athletics, opened up a new era of excitement on the west campus of EMU in the fall of 1998. The state-of-the-art, $29-million facility is the result of a decade-long effort to improve and upgrade University facilities and followed closely the opening of the $41-million Bruce T. Halle Library on the main campus. Construction of the Convocation Center began in the spring of 1997 and culminated with its dedication game, Dec. 9, 1998, with a men’s basketball game against the University of Michigan in front of a crowd of 7,647. Since its opening, the Convocation Center has served as home court for the Eagles’ men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams. The EMU wrestling team and women’s gymnastics team have held several meets on the arena floor. The Convocation Center has also served as the site for four Mid-American Conference Championships. EMU hosted the 2000 and 2007 MAC Gymnastics Championship and the 2002 and 2009 MAC Wrestling Championship. The arena has been the host site for four first-round MAC Women’s Basketball Tournament games, four first-round MAC Volleyball Tournament games and one first-round game for the men’s basketball squad. The Convocation Center also played host to the 2008 WNBA’s Eastern Conference Finals and the WNBA Championship, as the Detroit Shock utilized the facility for the playoffs. Along with their commitment to EMU Athletics, the Convocation Center staff has brought some of the finest entertainers in the world to Ypsilanti. The Convo has hosted concerts by the Black Crowes, Indigo Girls, Godsmack, Smashmouth, Ludacris, Bob Dillion, Toby Keith, Matchbox Twenty, Goo Goo Dolls, Dave Chapelle and John Mayer.

The Convocation Center is also the site for EMU’s spring and winter commencement ceremonies. Among other events that have taken place include numerous youth sporting competitions, high school commencements, trade shows, job fairs, conventions, charity and community awareness events as well as a circus. The 204,316-square-foot facility features three user-friendly levels — arena, concourse and office — and three seating configurations to maximize crowd capacity and space usage. The largest seating capacity is for center-stage entertainment activities, with 9,500 seats available. The capacity for basketball games is approximately 8,800. EMU’s athletic administration is located on the office level, along with offices for the EMU football, men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball coaching staffs. The EMU Athletic Media Relations Office, as well as offices for the Convocation Center staff, are located on the office level. The main athletic training room and office space for EMU’s sports medicine staff is located on the arena level as are strength and conditioning facilities and equipment rooms. There is no doubt that the Convocation Center has become a special place for athletic events, but there is a warm spot in the hearts of Eastern Michigan fans for Bowen Field House, the home for men’s and women’s basketball games for 43 years. Bowen was built in 1955 at a cost of $1.25 million. The facility has 79,529 square feet of floor space and includes an eight-laps-tothe-mile indoor track. An additional 9,394 square feet, along with new permanent seating, a new court and upgrading of the facility was completed in 1982 at a cost of $506,938. Bowen still serves as home to EMU’s track teams and also serves as a practice facility for many of Eastern’s varsity squads.

E-Hoops Group Over the past year, a leadership group of former Eastern Michigan University basketball players, led by former great Earle Higgins, has developed plans to launch the E-Hoops Group to make a significant effort to reconnect all former Eastern Michigan basketball players back to the program. The E-Hoops Group is patterned after the highly successful E-Gridiron Group (EGG) that helps support the EMU football program. The EGG has raised more than $700,000 since its inception in the spring of 2006. “One of the E-Hoops Group’ missions is to be a proactive group,” Higgins explained. “ I will be acting as the liaison along with the alumni in supporting our group’s shared vision of delivering the highest level of participation from our alumni and former players in supporting our men’s basketball program. “We will work with the University, Athletic Director Dr. Derrick Gragg, and his staff, to create and development an open, honest, value-added involvement with contributions from every person connected to this great University to maximize better outcomes,” Higgins added. “ With strong support and participation from every corner we will help leverage our participation, resources and opportunities in bringing back the glory days of Eastern Michigan University basketball.” The E-Hoops Group program for this year will be targeted at former basketball players, but will eventually be expanded to all family and fans of EMU basketball in future years. Membership, which will be free to men’s basketball alumni this first year, will include the following benefits: • Specially designed E-Hoops Group Shirt (like the EMU coaches wear during casual times) • Invitation to E-Hoops Group member-only events throughout the year • Inside access to EMU Basketball through special e-mails and conference calls with Coach Charles E. Ramsey.

Mid-American Conference Since its inception in 1946, the Mid-American Conference has progressively grown and developed into one of the most aggressive Division I conferences in the country. One of only 11 football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in the 63-year history of the league this past March. Steinbrecher came to the MAC after serving for six years as the commissioner of the Ohio Valley Conference. The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to six its number of neutral site post season events – football (Detroit’s Ford Field), volleyball (Toledo’s SeaGate Centre), men’s and women’s basketball (Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena), softball (Akron’s Firestone Stadium) and most recently baseball (Chillicothe’s VA Memorial Stadium). The MAC tied a league record in 2008 with five schools participating in bowl games – Buffalo (International); Ball State (GMAC); Central Michigan (Motor City); Western Michigan (Texas); and Northern Illinois (Independence Bowl). The 2008 season also saw the first MAC football team ranked in the Top 25 since 2003. Ball State was ranked as high as 12th in the BCS Standings, 12th in the AP and 13th in the USA Today Poll. The Cardinals were ranked in all three polls for 10 straight weeks. MAC football teams won a league record four games versus opponents from the Big Ten. Toledo became the first MAC team to ever beat Michigan in Ann Arbor; Ball State won its first-ever game against a Big Ten foe when the Cardinals beat Indiana; Central Michigan also defeated Indiana; and Western Michigan beat Illinois in a game played at Ford Field. In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC signed an eight-year rights agreement through the 20162017 academic year for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal will be the most extensive in the 63-year history of the conference. The new deal calls for a minimum of 25 events annually to be produced and aired on an ESPN platform including the men’s and women’s basketball championships, a regular-season MAC presence on ESPN, the Marathon MAC Football Championship and a minimum of 11 regular-season football games. Women’s athletics shined for the MAC this past year. For the first time in the history of the conference the MAC sent three teams to the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament (Miami, Ohio and Western Michigan). Western Michigan became only the third team to make it to the Sweet Sixteen (Ohio 2005 and Western Michigan 1983). In women’s basketball MAC Tournament Champion Ball State upset perennial national power Tennessee in the first round of the NCAA tournament handing the Lady Vols their first ever loss in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. The victory was named “Pontiac Game Changing Performance” of the 2009 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament, while first year head coach Kelly Packard was named Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year by the WBCA. Akron continued its dominance of MAC men’s soccer with its 11th regular-season championship to go along with its sixth MAC Tournament title – both league records. The Zips were ranked as high as No. 2 during the season and reached the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Northwestern, 1-0. Steve Zakuani, who helped guide the University of Akron men’s soccer program to a record-setting campaign in 2008, was the

82

first overall pick of the 2009 Major League Soccer Super Draft. Zakuani earned 2008 MAC Men’s Soccer Player of the Year honors and was a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, which goes to the best men’s soccer player in the country. The conference now has national leadership positions on the following NCAA committees: Warde Manual, Buffalo (Academic Cabinet); Susan Lipnickey, Miami (Leadership Council and Infractions Appeals); Derrick Gragg, Eastern Michigan (Legislative Council); Dr. John Peters, Northern Illinois (Board of Directors); Tom Collins, Ball State (Amateurism Cabinet); Kelly Andrews, Toledo (Awards, benefits, Expenses & Financial Aid Cabinet); Stephannnie Harvey-Vandenburg, Eastern Michigan (Recruiting & Athletic Personal Issues Cabinet); Brad Bates, Miami (Academic Performance); Eileen Jennings, Central Michigan (Infractions); Ted McKown, Kent State (International Students Records); Jim Klein, Toledo (Legislative Review & Interpretations); Karin Lee, Ball State (Minority Opportunities and Interest); Melody Reifel Werner, Eastern Michigan (Research); Catharine Marsszeky, Kent State (Student-Athlete Advisory); Lee Merserve, Bowling Green (Walter Byers Scholarship). The MAC also has representation on Division I Sport Committees and related governing groups: Cathy O’Donnell, Kent State (Field Hockey); Dave Heeke, Central Michigan (Football Issues); Marling “Newt” Engle, Akron (Rifle); Karin Lee, Ball State (Tennis); Rich Ceronie (Track & Field); Laing Kennedy, Kent State (Men’s Basketball); Charlie Coles, Miami (Men’s Basketball Issues); Jim Schaus, Ohio and Reggie Witherspoon, Buffalo (Men’s Basketball Rules); Steven Cady, Miami (Men’s Ice Hockey); Mary Lu Gribschaw, Akron (Men’s Soccer); Greg Christopher, Bowling Green (Women’s Basketball); Anucha Brown-Sanders, Buffalo and Donyale Canada, MAC (Women’s Basketball Issues); Curt Miller, Bowling Green (Women’s Basketball Rules); Jerry Reighard, Central Michigan (Gymnastics); Matt Wolfert, Ball State (Women’s Soccer); Dee Abrahamson, Northern Illinois (Women’s Softball Rules); Derek van der Merwe, Central Michigan (Wrestling). From two-time Super Bowl quarterback winning Ben Roethlisberger (Miami University), NFL Defensive MVP James Harrison (Kent State University), British Open winner Ben Curtis (Kent State University), World Series winning manager Bob Brenly (Ohio University) and Olympic bobsled team member Brock Kreitzburgh (University of Toledo), the Mid-American Conference continues to excel in producing leaders in the world of athletics.

In 1946 men’s basketball was the first competitive sport in the MAC, which now sponsors a total 23 sports. Women’s sports were brought into the conference’s structure in 1980. For men, championships (11) are sponsored in football, basketball, baseball, cross country, soccer, swimming and diving, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, golf and tennis.

Men’s Basketball Opens With Exhibition Win Eagles’ offense rolls in 79-43 win over Alma YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team came up with a fast-paced offense , added a strong rebounding effort and played some stingy defense on the way to a 79-43 win over a visiting Alma College team here Sunday, Nov. 9, afternoon in an exhibition game played in the Convocation Center. The Eagles scored 38 points in the first half and 41 in the second half and out-rebounded Alma, 59-29, to cruise to the 36-point victory. Head coach Charles E. Ramsey’s Eagles had four players in double figures led by junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) with 14 points while Kyle Dodd (Rockwood, Ontario, Canada-Ross Collegiate) and sophomore guard Solomon Farris (Detroit, Mich.-Osborn) added 12 each and sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor Truman (Mich.)) scored 10. The Eagles shot 47.1 percent (33-of-70) from the field and limited the visitors to just 24.6 percent (15-of-61). After a slow start, Alma scored the first points at the 18:18 mark on a jumper by sophomore guard Jordan Reddit. Eastern then scored the next six straight points on a jumper by Dodd, a follow-up tip off a missed shot by Wendale Farrow (Sacramento, Calif.-Mira Loma-Indian River C.C.) and two foul shots by Dodd. Alma came back with a quick flurry of its own over the next four minutes and cut EMU’s lead to 11-9, on a three-point field goal and a two pointer by Reddit. Eastern bounced back by out-scoring the Scots, 11-2 over the next five minutes to take a convincing 22-11 lead at the 5:32 mark. The Eagles would continue their offensive onslaught, rolling to a 27-11 advantage with 4:21 left on the clock, but the Scots would mount a quick comeback at that point, cutting the EMU lead to 12, 29-17 with 1:57 left. Eastern would close out the half with nine unanswered points to head into the locker room with a 38-17 lead.

EMU Opens Regular Season With a 119-48 Win Over Marygrove Eagles roll to 50-21 halftime lead on the way to a 71-point victory YPSILANTI, Mich. — A high-energy “Education Day” crowd provided plenty of vocal support for the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team as the Eagles rolled to a 119-48 non-conference win over Marygrove College here Friday afternoon, Nov. 14, in the Convocation Center. The game was the 2008-09 season opener for EMU and leaves Marygrove with an 0-2 record. The victory margin of 71 broke the EMU record of 59 set Jan. 17, 1968 against Western Ontario. A group of approximately 1,500 area elementary and middle school students were on hand to scream and cheer the Eagles on to victory and their presence helped the EMU offense roll up a 50-21 halftime lead on the way to the 71-point victory. The 119 points was the first 100-point effort for the Eagles since a 115-80 win over Concordia, Dec. 2, 2002. Head coach Charles E. Ramsey’s Eagles had 12 players crack the scoring column with EMU sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) with a career-best 26 points to go along with 14 rebounds. Freshman forward Branden Harrison (Houston, Texas-Milby) added 21 points while sophomore guard Solomon Farris (Detroit, Mich.-Osborn) chipped in 14 points and seven rebounds and junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) scored 11 points with seven rebounds. The Eagles shot 55.3 percent from the field (47-of-85) while holding Marygrove to just 22.8 percent (18-of-79). Eastern also posted a 73-37 advantage in rebounding. Marygrove was led by Walt Williams with nine points while Darius Kellar and James Lomax added seven each. Marygrove jumped out to a quick 7-3 lead in the game’s first three minutes with all seven coming off the hot hand of junior guard Walt Williams. The Eagles came up with a flurry of their own after that slow beginning, however, running off 10 unanswered points to take a 12-7 lead at the 15:51 mark and the Eagles never looked back, building up a 50-21 halftime advantage. Bowdry led all scorers with 16 first-half points while Farris and Dobbins added nine each. The Eagles will head to West Lafayette, Ind. Monday-Tuesday (Nov. 17-18) to play in the first round of Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off. Eastern is slated to meet Purdue Monday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m. in Mackey Arena.

EMU DROPS NIT OPENER AT PURDUE Dobbins and Bowdry in double figures for the Eagles WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Eastern Michigan University Eagles men’s basketball team dropped an 87-58 loss to No. 11/10 nationally ranked Purdue University Boilermakers Monday night, Nov. 17, here at Mackey Arena in the first round of the NIT Season Tip-Off. With the loss, the Eagles drop to 1-1 on the season and move onto the consolation game Tuesday, Nov. 18. Tip-off is set for 4 p.m. versus the University of Georgia, who lost to Loyola (Chicago), 74-53, in Monday night's second contest. Junior forward Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) was one of two EMU players to reach double figures against Purdue, leading the Green and White with 16 points. Redshirt sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.)Truman) chipped in 15 points and six rebounds. Sophomore guard Solomon Farris (Detroit, MichOsborn) grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds. For the game, Eastern Michigan shot 23-of-59 form the field, making just 3-of-14 three pointers and 9-of-19 free throws. Purdue shot 32-of-66, 8-of-23 three-point field goals and hit 88.2 percent (15-of-17) from the charity line. The Boilermakers had four players in double-figures, with Robbie Hummel leading the way with 18 points. E'Twaun Moore chipped in 17 points and a game-high six assists. The Eagles opened the game on an 8-0 run, as Bowdry put the first two points onto the board for the Green and White at the 19:24 mark. Back-to-back buckets by Dobbins and a jumper by Farris gave the Eagles the eight-point edge, but the Boilermakers would not stay silent long as Purdue's JaJuan Johnson found the bucket. Purdue would continue to carry its momentum, stringing together an 11-point stretch, to take the lead, 16-10, before a jumper by Farris and a dunk by Dobbins cut Purdue's lead to just two points, 16-14. The Boilermakers continued to make a run at the basket, going on another run, this time for 10 points, putting the Eagles' deficit at 10. Purdue would head into the locker room at half time with a 20-point lead, 42-22. Dobbins would lead all Eagle scorers with 10 points going into the half. Both teams went point-for-point to begin the second half, but the Boilermakers were too much for the Eagles, as Purdue closed out to take the 87-58 win.

EAGLES FALL IN HEARTBREAKER TO GEORGIA Dobbins leads the way with a game-high 22 points WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team came up one point short against defending Southeastern Conference champion the University of Georgia, 61-60, here Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 18, in Mackey Arena in the consolation game of the North Regional of the Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off. The Eagles built an 11-point lead, 53-42, with 8:56 left in the game, but a relentless Georgia offense would whittle away at the scoreboard, taking a 56-55 advantage of its own with 3:56 remaining in the game. Sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) would score with 1:13 remaining to give the Eagles a slim one-point margin, 59-58. Trailing by one point, 61-60, junior Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) would grab a rebound off a missed free throw with 5.2 seconds left and pass the ball off to freshman Antonio Green (Inkster, Mich.-Dearborn Heights Robichaud), who was unable to get off a shot before time expired. Dobbins recorded his fifth straight double-figure game, leading all EMU scorers with 22 points. Bowdry put up 14 points while grabbing eight rebounds, and Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) added 13 and six, respectively. Redshirt freshman L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) dished out a game-high nine assists, while putting up six points and four rebounds. For the Bulldogs, Corey Butler led three UG players in double-figures, scoring 12. Terrence Woodbury and Dustin Ware added 11 apiece. The Eagles out-shot the Dogs, going 48.9 percent (22-of-45) from the field and 64.7 (11-of-17) from the charity stripe, compared to 35.9 percent (23-of-64) and 50 percent (6-of-12), respectively. For the second night in a row the Eagles would jump out to an early lead, rolling to an 8-0 start Monday, Nov. 17, against Purdue and an 8-2 advantage against the Bulldogs. Georgia came back from that rocky start, however, and went into the locker room at halftime with a two-point lead, 32-30. Eastern came out strong in the early stages of the second half also, slowly building its lead to eight and then 11 before Georgia fought back to make it a one-possession game over the game’s final few minutes.

EAGLES DROP NON-LEAGUE DECISION AT DETROIT Poor second half dooms EMU in 62-47 setback DETROIT, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped a 62-47 non-conference decision to the University of Detroit Mercy here Saturday evening, Nov. 22, in non-conference action at historic Calihan Hall. In a game that was plagued with a combined 48 turnovers, the Titans used a 30-15 run to open the second half and effectively put the game out of reach. Eastern Michigan drops to 1-3 on the young season, while Detroit picks up its first win of the year to improve to 1-2. A pair of Eagles reached double figures led by L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) with a career-high 14 points. Solomon Farris (Detroit, Mich.-Osborn) poured in 13 to go along with a personal-best eight rebounds. Three Titans reached double figures in points led by Eulis Stephens with 13 points in addition to Xavier Keeling and Thomas Kennedy who each had 12 points. EMU managed just 36.6 percent (16-of-45) from the floor compared to 45.1 percent (23-of-51) for UDM. In the second half the Titans managed blistering 57.1 percent (16-of28) clip from the floor and a 50.0 percent (6-of-12) ratio from behind the arc. Out of the gate the Titans raced out to an early 6-0 edge, but a Frazier layup and a pair of Justin Dobbins’ (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) free throws with 14:39 showing in the first period. Two more free throws by Frazier and Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) gave Eastern the 8-6 edge, as the UDM offense went silent for nearly six minutes before Keeling rolled one in to end the skid and tie it back up with 10:14 to go. The methodical style of play continued for both sides, as the two rivals tried to establish the game’s tempo with EMU holding a slim 10-8 edge with 8:30 remaining. After exchanging scores, the Eagles were able to take their largest lead of the contest at five, 18-13, with 3:21 left when Bowdry banked in a pair off free throws. However, just as quickly the lead disappeared as Detroit would go on a 5-4 run to close the half down just three at 21-18. Following the break the momentum was swinging back in favor of the Titans, as Detroit was able to go back on top 27-26 via a Donavan Foster three-pointer with 16:11 to go. The sides would exchange possessions as turnovers continued to mount. Later in the half things continued to fall in favor of the home team, as a Keeling expanded the lead to as many as 17 points, 55-38, with 5:11 left. EMU would get no closer than 12 points the rest of the way, as the Titans cruised to the 62-47 decision. The Eagles to return to action in the consolation round of the Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-off, Nov. 25-25, at Carnesecca Arena in Queens, N.Y. EMU will face St. John’s University Monday evening at 8 p.m. followed by a Tuesday afternoon tilt with Cornell University at 5:45 p.m.

MEN’S BASKETBALL FALLS AT ST. JOHN’S Four Eagles reach double-figures against the Red Storm JAMAICA, N.Y. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped a 7361 loss to the Red Storm from St. John’s University, Monday, Nov. 24, here at Carnesecca Arena in the team’s third game of the Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off tournament. The Eagles drop to 1-4 with the loss, while the Red Storm improves to 4-1 with the victory. Despite matching St. John’s basket for basket in the second half, the Eagles couldn’t find an answer for the Red Storm on the glass, as St. John’s out-rebounded EMU, 50-28. A two point advantage seconds into the game would be EMU’s only lead of the game, as the team quickly found themselves down 10 with 14:04 remaining and by as many as 17 points in the first frame. But the Eagles managed to weather the Red Storm going into intermission, cutting St. John’s lead to 37-25 at the half. Junior forward Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) recorded nine points and three boards in the first 20 minutes, and finished the contest with 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting and three steals. The Red Storm came out firing to start the second half, taking a 20 point advantage with 12:29 remaining, as back-to-back jumpers by Quincy Roberts gave St. John’s its largest lead of the game. The Eagles limited the deficit to 12 points with under a minute to play, but were unable to mount a comeback, as the Red Storm’s inside play proved to be the deciding factor. Sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) played a team-high 35 minutes and recorded 13 points on 6-of-13 shooting, while freshman forward Branden Harrison (Houston, Texas-Milby) pitched in 12 points off the bench on 4-of-7 shooting from the field. As a team, the Eagles shot 63.2 percent (12-of-19) from the free throw line and 37.9 percent from the field (22-of-58), while the Red Storm shot 68.4 percent (13-of-19) from the charity stripe and 45.2 percent (28-of-62) from the field. The Eagles will wrap up the Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off tomorrow evening when they take on the Big Red from Cornell University at 5:45 p.m. at St. John’s Carnesecca Arena. The Eagles hold a 2-1 all-time mark against the Big Red, but the two teams have not met since Dec. 2, 1978 when Cornell claimed a 90-81 overtime win in Ypsilanti.

EMU FALLS, 67-54, TO CORNELL The Eagles will play at Brown Saturday, Nov. 29, at 1 p.m. JAMAICA, N.Y. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped its final game of the Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off tournament, as the Big Red from Cornell University handed the Eagles a 67-54 loss Tuesday, Nov. 25, here at Carnesecca Arena on the campus of St. John’s University. The loss drops EMU to 1-5 this season, while Cornell improves to 4-2 with the win. Redshirt freshman point guard L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) and redshirt sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) each finished with a team-high 11 points, while senior guard Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) and junior center Kyle Dodd (Roockwood, Ont.-John F. Ross) pitched in nine and eight off the bench, respectively. The EMU offense came out firing in the first frame, as back-to-back jumpers in the post from Dodd gave EMU an 18-10 advantage with 10:49 remaining in the first half. But the Bears would eventually put the breaks on the Eagle offense, as a 13-5 run made it a 23all game with 5:53 remaining in the first half. Cornell would take a 31-28 lead going into intermission, as Geoff Reeves led all scorers with eight points in the first 20 minutes. Cornell’s potent defense held the EMU offense in check in the second half, and the inside play of Jeff Foote gave the Big Red an 11 point advantage with 11:59 remaining in the game. The Eagles would limit the deficit to nine points down the stretch, but couldn’t manage to find a rhythm on offense in the second half, as the team shot just 39.3 percent in the final 20 minutes. The Eagles committed 15 turnovers in the loss, while the Big Red turned the ball over just four times in the game. Cornell’s Ryan Wittman led all scorers with 19 points. The Eagles will be in action again on Saturday, Nov. 29 when they head to Providence, R.I. to take on the Bears from Brown University at 1 p.m. The Bears played spoiler last season for EMU’s home opener, as they escaped Ypsilanti with a 74-55 win, Nov. 9, 2007.

EAGLES lose a 53-51 Heartbreaker at Brown Brown posts a 7-2 run in the closing moments to claim the victory PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped a heartbreaker this afternoon, Saturday, Nov. 29 in Providence, R.I., as the Bears from Brown University handed the Eagles a 53-51 loss at the Pizzitola Sports Center. The loss drops the Eagles to 1-6 this season, while Brown improves to 3-3 with the win. With the score tied at 51-all with 2:12 remaining the game, Brown’s Peter Sullivan would hit a 15-foot jumper to give his team a two point lead. After forcing the Bears to turn the ball over on a shot clock violation, the Eagles got the ball back with seven seconds left, but could not get a shot off in time as the clock expired. There were 16 total lead-changes in the game, and the teams were tied six times in the contest. With the Eagles down one with 13:47 remaining in the first frame, senior guard Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) gave EMU a one point advantage on a fast-break layup after redshirt freshman guard L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) ripped Brown’s Chris Skrelja. Frazier would knock down a three-pointer less than a minute later to extend EMU’s lead to 15-11. Sophomore guard Solomon Farris (Detroit, Mich.-Osborn) would connect from long-distance again with 8:50 remaining to force a Brown timeout and give the Eagles a nine point advantage. Farris finished with a team-high 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting, including three baskets from long-distance. The Bears got some momentum going late in the half as Morgan Kelly drilled a pair of three’s with under a minute remaining to give the Bears their first lead since the 13 minute mark, but a Gay three-pointer as time expired gave EMU a 28-26 advantage going into intermission. Frazier and Brown’s Peter Sullivan led all scorers with eight points at the half. EMU forced 10 Brown turnovers in the first half on seven steals, but the Bears maintained a 17-14 advantage on the boards. The two teams traded shot-for-shot in the second half, and with 7:40 remaining in the game, Farris drilled his third three-point bomb of the game to give EMU a 45-44 lead and force a Brown timeout. The Eagles would extend their lead to three after Gay blocked Brown’s Adrian Williams as the shot clock expired and took it coast-to-coast for the layup, giving EMU a 49-46 lead. The Eagles dominated the Bears in the paint, out scoring Brown 26-14, but rebounds late in the game proved to be the deciding factor, as the Bears preserved their advantage on the boards by out-rebounding the Eagles, 36-28. Sullivan led all scorers with 20 points on 5-of-10 shooting from field and 8-of-12 shooting from the charity stripe. The Eagles will be back in action again Monday, Dec. 8, when they host the Warriors from Wayne State University at the Convocation Center at 7 p.m. The two teams have not met since Nov. 23, 1991, when EMU cruised to a 105-63 victory in the season opener in Ypsilanti.

EAGLES GET BACK ON WINNING TRACK Strong second-half defense leads to 67-47 win over Wayne State YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team ended a sixgame losing streak, rolling to a 67-47 non-conference victory over a visiting Wayne State University team here Monday night, Dec. 8, in the Convocation Center. The victory puts EMU at 2-6 this season, while WSU drops to 3-3 with the loss. The Eagles played without head coach Charles E. Ramsey, who was suspended from the game due to an incident that occurred after the team’s Nov. 22 game at the University of Detroit Mercy. Associate head coach Derrick McDowell handled the head coaching duties in Ramsey’s absence. Redshirt sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) Bowdry finished with a game-high 19 points on 8-of-17 shooting and seven boards, while Farris and Dobbins added 15 and 13 points, respectively. Bowdry got the Eagles off to a hot start, as he scored eight of EMU’s first 12 points of the contest en route to a 12-5 advantage. Freshman forward Branden Harrison (Houston, Texas-Milby) would extend EMU’s lead to 13 as his three-pointer with 8:48 remaining in the first half gave the Eagles a 27-14 advantage. The Warriors battled back in the final minutes of the first half to cut EMU’s lead to one, but the Eagles’ hot shooting allowed the team to preserve a 39-31 lead at intermission. The Eagles shot 62.5 percent from the field on 15-of-24 shooting in the first 20 minutes – their best first half output this season, while the Warriors shot 40 percent (12-of-30) from the field. Sophomore guard Solomon Farris (Detroit, Mich.-Osborn) and junior forward Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) each tallied a team-high 11 points for the Eagles in the first 20 minutes, while Wayne State’s Bryan Wright led all scorers with 14 points at the half. The Eagles would continue their hot shooting to start the second half, as back-to-back three-point bombs from redshirt freshman guard L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) and layup by Bowdry gave EMU a 15-point advantage with 16:28 remaining, forcing a Warrior timeout. The Eagles would keep WSU at arm’s length for the remainder of the contest, as a Bowdry free throw with 2:31 remaining capped a 14-0 run for the Eagles and gave the team a 28-point lead. The team’s stingy defense held WSU scoreless for more than half of the second frame, as EMU held the Warriors to just 17.9 percent (5-of-28) shooting in the second half.

EMU FALLS AT MICHIGAN Strong start not enough for Eagles in loss ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team came out with a hot start, but in the end it was Michigan’s hot shooting that doomed the Eagles in a 91-60 non-conference loss here Saturday afternoon, Dec. 13, in Crisler Arena. Eastern opened up a a seven-point in the first half before the Wolverines used stellar outside shooting to take a 10-point lead, 44-34, at the half. Michigan, now 7-2 on the year, would go on to finish the game with a school-record 16 three pointers made on 33 attempts. Eastern would dominate the boards, however, holding a huge 44-28 advantage. EMU, now 2-7 on the year, was led by redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) with 16 points and seven rebounds while teammate Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) added 13 points and a game-best eight rebounds. After a quiet first half with just a single field goal, Michigan’s Harris came alive for 20 points in the second 20 minutes of action to finish with 22. DeShawn Sims and Jevohn Shepherd followed with 18 points and 13 points, respectively. Eastern shot 40.3 percent (25-of-62) for the contest while Michigan boasted a 52.2 percentage (35-of-67), including the school-record 16 three-point field goals. EMU also turned the ball over 17 times, compared to just five for U-M Eastern jumped out to an early 6-0 edge, however, Michigan promptly answered with a 7-0 run of its own to take the lead with 15:41 showing on the clock. The Wolverines, who were playing without head coach John Beilein due to an illness, struggled to find their offensive stroke early on in the contest. It didn’t help either when sophomore guard Manny Harris picked up his second foul on a charging violation at the 11:49 mark with EMU still clinging to a 15-11 lead. Sharp-shooting by Gay and inside action by Bowdry upped the margin to seven, 26-19, the Eagles’ largest lead of the half The momentum would quickly evaporate though, as Michigan would control the final 7:48 of the stanza, going on a 25-8 run. Consecutive treys by U-M pulled it back to a single-possession, 26-25, with 6:09 to play in the first half. Bowdry again answered the bell for the Eagles with a put-back and Will Cooper (Detroit, Mich.-Pershing-Bridgton (Maine) Academy) added a runner in the lane to keep EMU in front 30-27. But moments later a three-pointer by C.J. Lee knotted the score at 30, and a pair of free throw tosses from DeShawn Sims with 3:07 gave Michigan its first lead. U-M continued to light up the nets from long-range as the Wolverines connected on eight three-pointers, as the Wolverines took a 44-34 advantage into the lockerroom at the half. The second half belonged entirely to the Wolverines, who out-scored EMU 47-26 in the frame.

EAGLES DROP 86-78 DECISION TO ST. BONAVENTURE EMU loses non-conference tilt on “George Gervin Day” YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped a 86-78 non-conference decision to the visiting St. Bonaventure University Saturday, Dec. 20. The game, dubbed “George Gervin Day,” honored EMU and NBA legend George “Iceman” Gervin in a halftime ceremony. Gervin received an honorary baccalaureate degree from Eastern Michigan. With the loss, the Eagles fall to 2-8 on the season while the Bonnies improve to 7-3. SBU hit 58 percent (29-of-50) for the game, including 60 percent (3-of-5) from behind the arc, compared to 44.8 percent (26-of-58) and 37.5 percent (6-of-16), respectively, for the Eagles. Sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor, Mich.-Truman) led the Eagles with a game-high 21 points and seven rebounds. Senior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) chipped in 15 points while adding five off the glass. Sophomore guard Solomon Farris (Detroit, Mich.-Osborn) notched in 13 points of his own. Andrew Nicholson led four SBU players in double-figures with 19 points. After trailing by as many as 19 in the first half 18 at the break, the Eagles came out firing at the start of the second half, putting together an 11-2 run to open the second frame and closing the St. Bonaventure lead to just nine, 52-43, with 17:39 remaining in the game. The Bonnies would not go away, putting together a 10-point run over the next 1:25 to lead, 62-43, with 16:13 showing on the clock. After a Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) layup and a bucket by SBU’s Ray Blackburn, Bowdry drained a jumper to spark a 7-0 EMU run, cutting the deficit to 12, 64-52. After two charity throws by SBU’s Chris Matthews, a Will Copper (Detroit, Mich.-PershingBridgton Academy) dunk and a Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville) free throw would close the gap to 11, 66-55, with 10:42 remaining. With 48 seconds remaining in the game, the Eagles would cut its deficit to just six points, 83-77, but SBU would hold on for the win. The Eagles would strike first, as Farris connected to Bowdry for the bucket, but the Bonnies were quick to respond and the two teams traded scores before St. Bonaventure took a two-point lead, 8-6, with 17:00 showing in the first frame. St. Bonaventure continued to build upon its lead, with its largest advantage coming with 1:10 remaining in the half. A layup and charity shot by Dobbins cut the Eagles’ deficit to 16, but a jumper by SBU’s Maurice Thomas with 27 seconds remaining would but the visitors up by 18, 50-32, heading into intermission. Dobbins led all EMU scorers at the break with eight points and four rebounds, while Thomas hit double-figures for the Bonnies with 14. The Eagles will be back in action Monday, Dec. 22, as the Oakland University Grizzlies invade the Convocation Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

EAGLES FALL AT HOME TO OAKLAND Three pointers and free throws prove to be the difference YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped a tough game tonight, Dec. 22, at the Convocation Center, as the Golden Grizzlies from Oakland University came away with a 66-53 victory in non-conference men’s basketball action. Both teams connected on 22 field goals, but Oakland won the three-point battle, 8-2, and also made 14 free throws to seven for EMU. After trailing by as many as 12 points, 47-35, with 12:30 left, the Eagles put on a surge to cut Oakland’s lead to five, 47-42, with 9:37 remaining on a three-point field goal by Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville). That would be as close as it would get the rest of the way as the Golden Grizzlies increased their lead to double figures near the six-minute mark and went on to post the 13-point win. Redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) led the Eagles, now 2-9 on the year, with 17 points while junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) added 10 points and eight rebounds. Oakland, now 8-6 on the year, was led by guard Erik Kangas with a game-high 25 points. It was all Oakland from the get-go, as Kangas drilled a pair of three’s in the first minute of the game to give the Grizzlies a 6-0 advantage. Oakland would extend its lead to 19-10 with 8:57 remaining in the first half on a Keith Benson jumper, forcing an EMU timeout. Freshman guard L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) would cut Oakland’s lead to six with 5:27 remaining in the half, as his three-pointer made it a 23-17 game. The Eagles would pull within a basket with 1:55 remaining in the frame, as Jones cut through two Grizzlies for a lay-up, making it a 25-23 game. The Eagles shot 42.3 percent (11-of-26) from the field in the first 20 minutes and limited the Grizzlies to 39.3 percent (11-of-28) shooting from the field, but Oakland led, 2925. Dobbins led the Eagles with eight points and four rebounds at intermission, while Oakland’s Johnathon Jones and Kangas each tallied 10 points. The Eagles and Grizzlies would trade shot for shot to begin the second half, but Oakland would quickly jump out to an 11 point lead with 14:14 remaining after a Kangas three and Matt Samuels lay-up off an EMU turnover. Jones would pull the Eagles within a handful with 9:37 left in the game, as his three-pointer limited the Grizzlies to a 47-42 lead. The Grizzlies would keep the Eagles at arms-length for the remainder of the game, as a Kangas three-pointer with 3:58 remaining all but sealed the victory, putting Oakland ahead, 57-46.

EMU DROPS 62-53 DECISION AT ILLINOIS Defense lets Eagles keep it close throughout CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team came up with a strong defensive effort, but dropped a 62-53 non-conference game here Sunday, Dec. 28, in Assembly Hall. The Eagles shot 45.8 percent from the field to 44.0 for the Illini and EMU held a 3028 advantage on the boards, but Illinois recorded the win behind the 25-point effort of 7-foot-1 center Mike Tisdale. EMU, now 2-10 on the year, was once again led by the dynamic duo of Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville), with 14 points and three rebounds despite fouling out with 6:24 left in the game, and Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman), who added 13 points and five rebounds. Sophomore Solomon Farris (Detroit, Mich.Osborn) added 12 for the Eagles. Illinois, now 12-1 on the year, was led by Tisdale’s 25 with Trent Meacham added 16. Eastern trailed by just three, 26-23, at the half, and the second half was almost a carbon copy with Illinois out-scoring Eastern, 36-30, to post the 62-53 victory. Dobbins jump-started EMU in the early stages of the game, scoring 10 of the Eagles’ first 15 points of the game to keep it close in the Eastern came up with a big sequence late in the first half. Trailing by a 26-17 margin with 2:21 left, Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville) made two free throws to cut it to 26-19. Dobbins followed up with a layup and was fouled with 27.5 left to make it 26-21. When Dobbins missed the charity toss, Will Cooper (Detroit, Mich.-Pershing-Bridgton) rebounded the missed free toss and laid it in to make it 26-23 in favor of Illinois. Cooper missed the free throw and neither team was able to score over the final 20 seconds to give the Illini the three-point lead at intermission. Dobbins led all scorers in the first half with 12 while Illinois was paced by Tisdale with eight. Eastern shot 39.5 (9-of-23) from the field in the first half while Illinois was making just 34.5 percent of its shots (10-of-29). Eastern also held a 19-16 advantage on the boards. Illinois jumped out to a quick 37-28 lead with 15:29 left in the game before Bowdry cut the advantage to six with a reverse layup and a free throw to make it 37-31 at the 15-minute mark. The home squad built its first double-digit lead of the second half, 43-33, when Tisdale hit back-to-back shots, the second with13:20 left in the game. After increasing its lead to 12, 45-33, it looked like the Eagles would suffer a major setback when Dobbins picked up his fourth personal foul of the game and went to the bench with 11:30 left. EMU did not allow the Illini to take advantage of Dobbins’ absence, however, and kept the lead under double figures until Dobbins was able to return with seven minutes left. Dobbins’ return did not last long as he was whistled for his fifth personal with 6:24 left in the contest and the Illinois kept the lead the rest of the way.

EMU FALLS AT CHICAGO STATE Brandon Bowdry records double-double with 23 and 10 CHICAGO, Ill. ­— The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team could not put two strong halves together as the Eagles dropped a 79-61 non-conference decision to Chicago State University here Sunday afternoon, Jan. 3, in the Emil and Patricia Jones Convocation Center. Head coach Charles E. Ramsey’s Eagles fell to 2-11 on the year while Chicago State improved to 8-7.The nation’s second-leading scorer, Chicago State senior guard David Holston, a native of Pontiac, Mich. who played high school basketball at Auburn Hills’ Avondale, was held to just three points in the first half on a strong defensive effort by the Eagles. Holston managed 13 second-half points to finish with 16. Teammate John Cantrell, also a native of Pontiac, added 15 and Mike Wilson scored 18 for the Cougars. Eastern was led by redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) turned in a double-double with 23 points and 10 rebounds while sophomore Will Cooper (Detroit, Mich.-Pershing-Bridgton) scored a career-best 16. The Eagles came up with a strong defensive effort in the first half, holding Chicago State to just 34.4 percent (11-of-32) from the field while shooting 57.9 (11-of-19). That story was turned completely around in the second half, however, as the Cougars connected on 17-of-28 field goals (60.7) in the second half while limiting the Eagles to just 30.6 percent on 11-of-36 shooting. The Eagles did manage a 40-34 advantage on the boards. The Eagles started the game on a quick 11-4 lead to start the game with Bowdry accounting for six of those points on two field goals and two free throws. Eastern kept that early lead and improved it to nine points several times, holding a 1910 advantage with 7:44 left in the half before Chicago State came back to pull within two, 21-19, after guard Mike Wilson connected on three consecutive 3-point field goals. Chicago State then fought back to tie the game at 27-all on two straight inside buckets by 6-foot-10 Nemanja Stankovic. Those two scores by Stankovic proved to be the final scores of the first half. The Eagles held Holston, who entered the game with a 26.9 scoring average, to just three points in the first 20 minutes. Bowdry led EMU with eight first-half points while Wilson topped CSU with nine. Eastern held the Cougars to just 34.4 percent shooting (11of-32) in the first half while the Eagles were shooting The Cougars bounced back from that early shooting drought to connect on three straight 3-pointers by Cantrell to start the second half, giving the home team a 37-32 advantage with 17:14 left in the game, a lead that they would not relinquish.

EAGLES DROP NON-CONFERENCE DECISION TO TEMPLE Brandon Bowdry lone Eagle to score in double figures with 16 YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team finished its non-conference schedule on a sour note with a 67-45 loss to Temple University here Wednesday, Jan. 7, night in the Convocation Center. Redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) was the lone Eagle in double figures with 16 points, hitting 8-of-9 field goals in just 17 minutes of action. He was in foul trouble early in the game and fouled out with 7:06 left in the contest. The loss drops EMU to 2-12 on the season while Temple improves to 7-6. The Owls were led in scoring by Dionte Christmas with 17 followed by Lavoy Allen with 14. The EMU offense sputtered the entire game, shooting just 34.5 percent (20-of-58) on the evening. Temple, meanwhile, was hitting at a 54.2 percent clip (26-of-48) for the game and the Owls also connted on 9-of-18 3-point attempts while also winning the battle of the boards, 34-31. Bowdry got the scoring started with a basket at 19:22 of the first half. Over the next four minutes, the Eagles and Owls would trade leads several times. Christmas forced a turnover under the Eastern basket at the 16:07 mark of the first and shot it home to put Temple ahead, 9-6. A rash of fouls in the offensive zone plagued the Eagles and hindered their scoring chances throughout much of the latter part of the half. Bowdry had already accumulated three fouls at the 2:30 mark of the opening frame. After a short 4-0 run by the Owls, Eastern ended the half on a high-note thanks to a dunk by sophomore Will Cooper (Detroit, Mich.-Pershing-Bridgton (Maine) Acad.), to put the score at 32-23 in favor of Temple heading to the break. The second half started off with four straight points from Bowdry which included an acrobatic reverse layup in the paint to cut the Eagle deficit to five, 32-27. Any hopes of a quick comeback would be silenced, however, as the Owls strung together seven straight points to go ahead 39-27. At the halfway point of the final half, the Owls possessed a 43-34 lead. After hitting double digits in the points column early in the opening period, Christmas was completely kept off the second half scoresheet as of the 10 minute mark. He would get back on the board, however, with back-to-back two-point efforts with just over six minutes to play to bring Temple’s advantage to 12, 52-38. In the closing minutes, Temple’s stranglehold on the lead became stronger as the Eagles had little answer for their offensive troubles. At the 7:06 mark, Bowdry recorded his fifth and final foul of the game. Temple ended the game on a 15-7 run to notch the win.

OFFENSE FALL SHORT IN MAC-OPENING LOSS Eagles tie Convocation Center record with 42 YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team tied an EMU record for low point total in the Convocation Center in a 46-42 loss to Ball State University here Saturday, Jan. 10, in the 2009 Mid-American Conference opener for both teams. The Eagles not only tied the EMU record for least points scored in a Convocation Center game, but a 13-point first half was also a Convo record low for an EMU squad. For the game the Eagles made just 14-of-49 field goals (28.6 percent). Ball State was not much better, however, hitting just 36.2 percent of their field-goal attempts (17-of47). The Cardinals did win the rebound battle, 43-33. Eastern, now 2-13 overall and 0-1 in the MAC, was led by redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) with 16 points, including a personal-best 9-of-11 from the free-throw line. Ball State, now 6-7 overall and 1-0 in league play, was paced by freshman center with jarrod Jones with 15 while senior Anthony Newell scored 10. Newell suffered a broken lower leg with 12:04 left in the game and was scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery Sunday morning. The Eagles struggled to find a rhythm on offense in the first half, as the team shot just 17 percent (4-of-23) from the field, including 0-for-9 from beyond the arc. Ball State’s Anthony Newell led all scorers with 10 points at intermission, including a three-pointer as time expired to put EMU down, 24-13, in the opening frame. EMU’s 13 points is the second-fewest points scored in the first half in Convocation Center history and the lowest for the Eagles since moving to the arena in 1998. The previous low for EMU was 15 points, which occurred Jan. 9, 1999 against Ball State, while Rochester’s 12 first-half points on Dec. 7, 2004 remains the fewest scored in Convocation Center history. The Eagles managed to cut the Cardinals’ lead to six with 7:57 left in the game, as jumper at the top of the key by senior center Kyle Dodd (Rockwood, Ont.-John F. Ross Collegiate) made it a 35-29 game. Senior guard Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) drilled a three pointer with four seconds remaining in the game to put the Eagles within four, but the Cardinals managed to hold on at the end for the victory. The Eagles will be back in action Tuesday, Jan. 13, when they host in-state rival Central Michigan University for a Mid-American Conference match-up at 7 p.m.

EAGLES WIN DOUBLE OT THRILLER OVER CMU Tyler Jones and Brandon Bowdry lead the way with 22 each YPSILANTI, Mich. — In the end it came down to clutch shooting and the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team made the most of its opportunities to record a thrilling 84-77 double-overtime victory over a visiting Central Michigan University squad here Tuesday night, Jan. 13, in a Mid-American Conference West Division game in the Convocation Center. EMU’s Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) turned in one of the game’s first clutch shots on a 3-point field goal with 1:04 left in regulation to give the Eagles an eight-point lead, 55-47. The Chippewas rebounded from that deficit, however, and trailed by three points, 59-56 with nine seconds left. CMU guard Robbie Harman came up with his own clutch bucket, connecting on a 3-pointer at the buzzer in regulation to knot the score at 59-all and sending the game into the first overtime. EMU sophomore guard L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) was the next hero, making a huge 3-point field goal followed by two free throws to give the Eagles a 71-68 lead with just 27 seconds left in the first overtime. Not to be outdone, CMU guard Jordan Bitzer tied the game at 71-all on yet another long 3-point field goal with 12 seconds left. After that shot by Bitzer, EMU turned the ball over, but EMU senior guard Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville) came up with a steal and an off-balance shot from the right corner was just off the mark, forcing the second overtime. The Eagles would not let that second overtime faze them as Gay connected on a big 3-point field goal with 20 seconds remaining to give EMU a six-point advantage, 83-77. Senior forward Wendale Farrow (Sacramento, Calif.-Mira Loma-American River J.C.) added a free throw for the Eagles to make the final score 84-77. After trailing 32-28 at halftime, the Eagles opened the second half with some tenacious lock-down defense, holding the visitors scoreless for the first eight minutes while building a 40-32 lead, setting up the late-game heroics. Jones and Frazier each turned in career-best scoring performances with Jones tallying 22 and Frazier adding 17, including 3-of-6 from beyond the arc. Redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) turned in the fourth doubledouble of his career with 22 points and 14 rebounds while Gay added 13. The double-overtime game for the Eagles, now 3-13 overall and 1-1 in the MAC, was their first extra-session game since a 75-72 loss, Dec. 29, 2007, against Texas A&M Corpus Christi in the second game of the Islander Invitational in Corpus Christi, Texas. The last double-overtime win came on Feb. 28, 1996 when EMU won, 81-77, over a visiting Ohio University squad. EMU now has a 10-10 record in the last 20 overtime games.

EAGLES FALL AT TOLEDO, 69-57 Brandon Bowdy leads EMU with 14 TOLEDO, Ohio — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team could not overcome a poor shooting night, dropping a 69-57 Mid-American Conference West Division game to the University of Toledo here Saturday (Jan. 17) night in Savage Arena. The Eagles came up with a steady defensive effort, especially in the first half when they held Toledo to just 26 points, but Eastern made just 18-of-49 field-goal attempts (36.7 percent) which proved to be the difference in the game. Toledo, on the other hand, connected on 53.7 percent from the field (22-of-41). The loss leaves EMU with a 3-14 overall record and a 1-2 MAC mark while Toledo improves to 3-14 and 1-2 in league play. Redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) led the Eagles with 14 points while senior Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville) added 10 and Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) scored nine. Toledo, 3-14 overall and 1-2 in league play, was paced by sophomore center Justin Anyijong with 17 while Tyrone Kent scored 13 and Jonathan Amos added 12. After Eastern’s stingy defense held Toledo to just 26 first-half points, the Eagles trailed at intermission, 26-22. The Eagles started the second half with a flurry, tying the game at 27-all with two free throws by Bowdry at the 17:46 mark. Toledo’s offense then came alive over the next seven minutes, rolling to a 48-31 lead with 10:08 remaining in the game. From that point on the Eagles could not make a significant dent in the Rocket lead and the home team closed it out with the 12-point win. Both teams traded buckets through the early going and the game remained close before the Eagles opened up a four-point lead, 21-17, on a 3-pointer by Will Cooper (Detroit, Mich.-Pershing-Bridgton Academy) with 9:03 left in the half. The Rockets came bck to take a 26-22 lead at the 4:10 mark on a layup by Justin Anyijong and the score stayed that way into halftime. Cooper led the Eagles in the first half with five points while Bowdry added four, sitting for most of the first half with two fouls. Anyijong paced the Rockets in the first half with eight points.

EAGLES DROP 72-52 WEST DIVISION GAME AT NIU Poor shooting dooms the Eagles in loss DeKALB, Ill. ­— For the second game in a row the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team could not overcome a poor shooting night, dropping a 72-52 Mid-American Conference West Division game to the Northern Illinois University Huskies here Tuesday night, Jan. 20, in the Convocation Center. The Eagles, now 3-15 overall and 1-3 in MAC play, made just 19-of-50 field goal attempts in the game for 38 percent while NIU was hitting 27-of-43 field-goal attempts. EMU also suffered at the charity stripe, making only 13-of-29 attempts (44.8 percent) Redshirt sohomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) led the Eagles with 16 points and nine rebounds while junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) added 10 before fouling out of the game at the 8:29 mark of the second half. NIU, now 6-10 overall and 2-2 in league action, was paced by center Sean Kowal with 20 while Darion “Jake” Anderson chipped in 16. The home squad opened the game by racing to an 11-4 lead at the first media time out with 15:11 left after four of the five starters contributed. The Huskies continued their offensive onslaught, increasing their lead to 18-4 before the Eagles managed a layup by Kamil Janton (Tarnow, Poland-Chicago Bartlett) at the 12:16 mark. The Eagles could not get their offense untracked over the final 12 minutes, however, making just 8-of-25 field-goal attempts (32.0 percent) and 1-of-8 free throws. NIU connected on 61.9 percent of its field goals (13-of-21) while also controlling the battle of the boards, 21-12, to build a 35-17 halftime lead. The Eagles began the second half with a flurry, scoring six unanswered points, four by Dobbins, but the EMU big man was called for his fourth foul with 16:12 left in the game and went to the bench. Northern picked up its offense with Dobbins out of the lineup and built an 18-point lead, 49-31, with 12:33 left. From that point the two teams traded buckets the remainder of the game with NIU closing out with the 20-point win, 72-52.

BRONCOS HAND EAGLES HOME SETBACK Late second-half EMU rally falls just short YPSILANTI, Mich. — A late second-half surge by the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team came up just short, as the Eagles fell to in-state rival Western Michigan University, 53-45, in Mid-American Conference action, Saturday, Jan. 24, at the Convocation Center. The Eagles were without head coach Charles E. Ramsey, who missed the game with what is believed to be a benign case of vertigo. Associate head coach Derrick McDowell coached in his absence. With the loss, EMU falls to 3-16 (1-4 MAC) on the season while Western moves to 7-11 (4-1 MAC). The Eagles were led by redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) with 12 points and nine boards. Freshman Antonio Green (Inkster, Mich.-Dearborn Heights Robichaud) chipped in nine for the Eagles. Neither team shot well from the floor, as Eastern Michigan managed a 33.3 percent clip (19-for-57) compared to 39.6 percent (21-for-53) for the Broncos. WMU had a pair in double-figures with David Kool and Shawntes Gary going for 16 apiece. After Western increased its lead to 14 at the 10:03 mark of the second half, the Eagles began to whittle away at the lead. A three-point play by Green brought the Eagles back within six, with 5:17 remaining in the contest. The two teams then went scoreless over the next two minutes before the teams traded baseline jumpers with 2:42 remaining, with the Broncos hanging to a 49-43 lead. The Eagles then went 2-for-4 from the line to get within four, 49-45, with 1:43 remaining. On the ensuing WMU possession, Green blocked Kool’s lay-up attempt, giving the Eagles the ball back with 1:24 to go. A costly turnover by the Green and White turned into two points for WMU, putting the game out of reach. The Broncos would then hit a pair of free throws to seal the victory. The first half was one of runs, as the Eagles started the contest on an 11-2 run over the first six minutes of the game to stake an early lead. After increasing the lead to eight, 14-6, the Broncos responded with a 10-0 run of their own to take their first lead of the contest, 16-14, at the 6:50 mark. The run for the visitors would continue over the rest of the half as WMU out-scored EMU 10-5. Western Michigan’s Derek Drews’ three-pointer to end the half gave the Broncos a 26-19 halftime advantage. The Eagles had three players with five points in the first frame, with Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville), Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) and Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) all chipping in five.

EAGLES DROP 68-46 DECISION AT KENT STATE EMU shoots just 28.1 percent from the field in loss KENT, Ohio ­— The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team’s first foray of the season into action against a Mid-American Conference East Division foe proved to be a disappointing one as the Eagles fell, 68-46, to Kent State University here Tuesday night, Jan. 27, in the Memorial Athletic Center. The Eagles started out on a strong note, rushing to a 9-4 lead in the early going, but poor shooting proved to be the difference the rest of the way as the Eagles made just 16of-57 field-goal attempts (28.1 percent) in the game. Kent State connected on 25-of-59 attempts for 42.4 percent. The loss drops EMU to 3-17 overall and 1-5 in MAC action while Kent State improves to 9-11 and 2-4 in league play. Junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) led the Eagles with a season-best 19 points, 12 in the first half. Dobbins also added five rebounds. Redshirt sohomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) added 12 points. Kent State was led by Al Fisher with 17 points while Tyree Evans scored 15 and Jordan Mincey added 13. Dobbins was on fire early, recording six of the Eagles’ first nine points to stake the visitors to an early 9-4 lead in the first five minutes of the game. The Eagles took an 11-8 lead at the 10:56 mark, but then went scoreless over the next five minutes as the home squad build a five-point lead, 20-15, with 4:12 left in the half. Kent would hold on to its lead through the final stages of the half, taking a 27-21 advantage into the lockerroom at intermission. Both teams suffered through poor shooting efforts the first half with the Eagles hitting just 34.5 percent (10-of-29) from the field while Kent State was not much better, making just 11-of-31 attempts for 35.5 percent. The Golden Flashes lead came via the foul line, despite a poor effort, making just 5-of-12 shots. Eastern did not attempt a free throw in the first 20 minutes. Dobbins led all first-half scorers with 12 points and added five rebounds. Bowdry, the Eagles’ leading scorer came up with just two points while playing only five minutes in the first half because of foul trouble. Freshman guard Daniel Barnes (Chicago, Ill.-Oak Park) gave the Eagles a spark off the bench, hitting a triple and a two-point field goal to cut Kent’s lead to 10, 55-45, with 8:01 left, but Mincey came right back with a big 3-point field goal to put Kent back up by, 13, 58-45, at the 7:38 mark. Kent State would increase its lead to as much as 20 points, 65-45, with two minutes left and the Golden Flashes went on to record the 22-point win.

EAGLES HANDLED BY REDHAWKS, 66-51 Bowdry and Green only Eagles in double figures YPSILANTI, Mich. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped its fifth straight Mid-American Conference tilt, falling 66-51 to the Miami Redhawks here Saturday, Jan. 31, at the Convocation Center. Sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) led the Eagles in scoring with 16 points while freshman Antonio Green (Redford, Mich.-Robichaud) hit a career-high 11 points in the contest, which included two three-pointers and four buckets from inside the arc. T he Eagles, 3-18 overall and 1-6 in the MAC, were without Head Coach Charles E. Ramsey for the third straight game. Ramsey continues to be sidelined with a benign case of vertigo Associate Head Coach Derrick McDowell has assumed the head coaching duties in the meantime. Miami improves to 12-7 and 5-2 in MAC play. Both teams shot under 50 percent from the field for the game. The Eagles went 21-for46 (45.7 percent) while the Redhawks shot 27-for-55 (49.1 percent). The Green and White drained just three of 11 shots from three-point range while Miami sunk four of 12. Miami out-rebounded the Eagles, 35-23, in the game. Michael Bramos, Tyler Dierkers and Adam Fletcher all hit double figures for the Redhawks with 14, 18 and 16 points, respectively. An exciting four minutes of end-to-end action got the game started with both teams remaining deadlocked at 4-4 until a Bramos three-pointer gave the Redhawks an early 7-4 lead with 17:07 remaining in the first half. Despite commanding ball control by the Eagles, they could not get the rock to fall, which allowed Miami to quietly put together an 8-0 run to go ahead, 12-4. A pair of buckets by junior Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) and senior Wendale Farrow (Sacramento, Calif.-Mira Loma (American River J.C.) ended the streak and cut the deficit to four, 12-8, with 11:59 to play in the first. With 6:52 remaining in the first half, Dobbins drew the and-one foul and made the ensuing free throw to make the score 18-13 in favor of the Redhawks. Bowdry then made it 20-17 with a two-pointer under the bucket with 4:50 to play. In the closing minutes of the half, EMU failed to convert on several possessions including a costly turnover which resulted in an easy fast-break layup for Miami, putting it ahead, 27-19. Redshirt freshman L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) added a bucket in the closing seconds to make the halftime score 27-21 for the Redhawks. Green got the second half scoring started for the Eagles with a three-pointer at 18:45 to make it a 33-24 game after Miami started the half on a 6-0 run. At 16:14, he hit a second trey to make it 34-27. Both sides were fairly consistent in trading-off baskets in the closing four minutes of the game, but it would be the Redhawks who had the advantage in the end as they went on to record the decisive victory, 66-51.

EAGLES DROP 78-41 HOME DECISION TO AKRON Early deficit hurts EMU in setback YPSILANTI, Mich. ­— The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team fell behind early and could not catch up, falling to the University of Akron Zips, 78-41, here Tuesday, Feb. 3 at the Convocation Center. The game marked the return of EMU Head Coach Charles E. Ramsey, who had missed the previous three contests with a benign case of vertigo. With the loss, EMU falls to 3-19 (1-7 MAC) on the year while Akron improves to 14-8 (5-3 MAC). The Eagles went scoreless for almost eight minutes in the first half, falling into a hole they could not climb out of. EMU was led by redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) with 12 points while Akron had four players reach double figures with Nate Linhart and Darryl Roberts leading the way with 13 each. The Eagles struggled offensively, shooting just 33 percent (16-of-49) while Akron shot 46 percent (27-of-59). The Eagles came out of the gate strong, taking a 5-2 lead just over two minutes into the contest. The Zips then rattled off 16 unanswered points, forcing an Eagle time out with 11:52 remaining. After going almost eight minutes without scoring, Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) ended the drought for the Eagles with a runner in the lane, making it 23-7 in favor of the Zips. Akron went to the break with a 41-18 lead. The Zips were hot from beyond the arc, connecting on 6-of-14 trey attempts, compared to just 1-of-3 for EMU. Branden Harrison (Houston, Texas-Milby) and Gay led the Eagles in the first half with four points each at the intermission. The Eagles were plagued by foul trouble in the first frame, as they were whistled for 14 fouls with three players registering three fouls apiece. EMU is back in action Saturday, Feb. 7, when the Eagles travel to Athens, Ohio to take on the Ohio University Bobcats. Tip-off is set for 5 p.m. at the Convocation Center.

The loss drops EMU to 3-20 overall and 1-7 in MAC action while Ohio improves to 1210 and 5-4 in league play. Eastern was once again led by the tandem of redshirt sohomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) and junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) with 11 points each. Senior Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) added 10. Senior Jerome Tillman led the Bobcats with 14 while Steve Coleman added 10. The Eagles shot just 38 percent from the field (16-of-41) and made only 8-of-19 free throws (42.1 percent) while Ohio was hitting 48 percent of its field goals (24-of-50) and adding 5-of-7 free tosses (71.4) percent. Eastern once again won the battle of the boards, 30-28. The two teams traded baskets through the early stages of the game before the Bobcats built a 17-10 lead at the 7:43 mark after scores by Tommy Freeman, Tillman and Justin Orr. Bowdry cut the deficit to five, 17-12, at the 7:04 mark and from that point the Eagles stayed even before cutting the margin to 24-20, on a free throw by Dobbins at the 1:04 mark. Neither team could score over the final minute of action and the Bobcats held the four-point halftime lead. Bowdry paced the Eagles with seven first-half points while Dobbins and Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville) added five each. The Bobcats were led by Tillman with seven points in the first 20 minutes. Dobbins opened the second half on an inside field goal to cut the lead to two, 24-22, but the Bobcats bounced back with seven unanswered points to take a 31-22 lead with 16:15 left. Eastern fought back to cut the Ohio lead to five, 37-32, when Bowdry connected on a long jump with 10:57 left, but once again the Bobcats answered, this time on a big 3-point field goal by Michael Allen followed by a lay-up from Tillman for a 10-point advantage, 42-32, with 8:58 remaining in the game. The Eagles would keep it under double digits for the next four minutes, but the Bobcats came up with a steady offense and some timely defense to keep the lead through the final few minutes, posting the 57-45 victory.

EAST DIVISION LEADER BUFFALO DROPS EAGLES Tough defensive effort not enough YPSILANTI, Mich. – The Mid-American Conference East Divison leading Buffalo Bulls proved up to their lofty spot in the standings, recording a 58-49 win over the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team here Thursday night, Feb. 12, in the Convocation Center. Head Coach Charles E. Ramsey’s Eagles came up with a tough defensive effort, holding the visiting Bulls nine point below their season average, but Eastern could not get its offense running smoothly, suffering the team’s eighth-straight setback to go to 3-21 overall and 1-9 in MAC action. The win boosts Buffalo to a conference-best 17-5 overall record and a 9-1 MAC mark. Redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) turned in a team-high 11 points and nine rebounds in the loss, while Rodney Pierce registered a game-high 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting for the Bulls. Buffalo wasted no time showing why they hold the best record in the MAC, as the Bulls started the game on a 10-0 run until Bowdry split a pair of free throw to make it 10-1 with 16:18 remaining in the first period. EMU faced a 34-24 deficit at intermission after shooting just 36 percent in the first half on 9-of-25 shooting from the field, while the Bulls shot 50 percent on 13-of-26 shooting from the field. The Eagles managed to cut UB’s lead to four with 13:21 remaining in the contest, as senior Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) connected from downtown to make it a 39-35 game. Gay finished with six points on 2-of-5 shooting from the field. The Bulls would go up by as many as 13 in the second half, as a hook shot in the post by Vadim Fedotov put the Eagles down, 49-36, with 8:23 remaining in the game. Junior Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) tallied 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field, while freshman L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) scored nine points on 3-of-10 shooting from the field. The Eagles will be back in action Sunday night, Feb. 15, when they travel to Bowling Green, Ohio for a MAC cross-divisional tilt with the Falcons of Bowling Green State University. Tip is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Anderson Arena. In their last meeting, the Eagles rolled to a 78-68 win over the Falcons in Ypsilanti behind a game-high 26 points from guard Carlos Medlock (Detroit, Mich.-Murray Wright), who also tied a career-high in points in the victory.

EMU BREAKS ROAD DROUGHT WITH WIN AT BGSU Bowdry records double-double to lead the Eagles BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team combined some outstanding three-point shooting with some clutch free-throw shooting down the stretch to record a 65-57 Mid-American Conference win over Bowling Green State University here in a rare Sunday, Feb. 15, evening game in Anderson Arena. The win was the first road victory in 12 attempts this year and also snapped an eightgame losing streak for the Eagles, leaving them with a 4-21 overall record and a 2-9 MAC mark. Bowling Green goes to 14-10 overall and 7-4 in MAC action. Eastern, which never trailed in the game, connected on a season-best 10-of-19 threepoint field goals and also made 20-of-42 field goals (47.6 percent) while holding Bowling Green to just 34 percent from the field (18-of-53). Senior Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) led the Eagles with 17 points, connecting on 5-of-8 three-point attempts. Redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.Taylor (Mich.) Truman) turned in his fourth double-double of the year with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Bowling Green opened the game with a zone defense and the Eagles quickly made them pay, racking up a 10-3 lead in the first five minutes. Freshman guard Antonio Green (Inkster, Mich.-Dearborn Heights Robichaud) did the most damage in that stretch with two straight three-point field goals. Eastern continued to go to the three-point shot, with Gay and L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) both connecting on shots from beyond the arc to give the Eagles an 18-11 lead at the 7:14 mark of the first half. After posting a 21-11 lead on another three-pointer by Gay at the 6:37 mark the Green and White hit a cold spell and did not score again until Bowdry made two free throws with 1:29 left for a 23-15 advantage. Bowdry would then add his only field goal of the first half with 47.9 seconds left to send the Eagles into intermission with a 25-15 lead, their first half-time advantage in the last nine games. The Eagles opened the second half by matching baskets with the Falcons through the first two minutes before Gay hit a three-pointer to give Eastern a 32-20 lead, forcing a BGSU time out at the 17:03 mark. Holding a slim 53-49 lead Bowdry hit a huge three with 1:50 left to put the Eagles up by seven, 56-49, and the Eagles increased it to what looked like a comfortable 10-point lead, 59-49, with just over a minute left to play, but BG’s Nate Miller bombed in two long threes to cut it to four. 59-55. From that point it was a game of free throws and Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.Belleville) made two, Frazier connected on three-of-four and Bowdry hit one-of-two to enable the Eagles to keep the lead and leave with the eight-point victory.

EMU SECOND HALF RALLY NOT ENOUGH IN LOSS Bowdry leads the Eagles with 13 points

EMU DROPS BRACKETBUSTER GAME TO GEORGIA STATE Eagles lose at home in E-Club Athletics Hall of Fame game

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – A spirited second-half rally fell just short for the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team here Wednesday night, Feb. 18, in a Mid-American Conference West Division battle with the Western Michigan University Broncos in University Arena. Eastern came back from a horrid first-half that saw the Eagles make just 6-of-24 fieldgoal attempts (25.0 percent) to cut it to one point late in the game, but the Eagles went six minutes without a score at the end of the game and dropped a 46-38 decision. After trailing by a 27-15 halftime deficit the Eagles began to sneak back into the contest in the early stages of the second half. L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) connected on back-to-back threes to cut the lead to three, 37-34, with 9:38 left and Wendale Farrow (Sacramento, Calif.-Mira Loma-American River J.C.) added a layup to make it a one-point game, 37-36, at the 6:41 mark. EMU failed to score from that point to the 33.1-second mark while Western tallied 10 and that was the difference in the game. Eastern had a huge advantage on the boards, grabbing 33 caroms to just 21 for the Broncos, but Western connected on 46.2 percent of its field goals (18-of-39) while Eastern was making just 30.4 percent (14-of-46). The loss leaves Eastern with a 4-22 overall record and a 2-10 MAC mark while Western improves to 9-16 overall and 6-6 in the league. Eastern was led by redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) with 13 points and seven rebounds while junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) hauled down 12 rebounds. Guard David Kool paced the Broncos in scoring with 19 while Shawntes Gary added 10. The Eagles opened the game with a quick 6-0 lead after Frazier and Bowdry both hit three-point field goals. The Broncos chipped away at that advantage over the next few minutes to go up by two, 8-6, but the Eagles responded by taking an 11-8 lead on a layup and free throw by senior at the 12:02 mark. Western bounced back with some timely shooting a tough defense to score the next 14 unanswered points to go on top, 20-11 before Farrow stopped the bleeding with a short jumper and Dobbins added a layup to make it 22-15 with 1:12 left in the half. WMU would go on to score the final five points of the half to enter halftime with a 2715 lead. The Broncos connected on 12-of-22 field goals in the first half for 54.5 percent while EMU was shooting 25 percent. The Eagles did manage to win the first-half battle of the boards, however, snatching 17 to 11 for the Broncos. Bowdry jump started the Eagles in the first five minutes of the second half, scoring seven points with Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville) adding a three to make it 34-25 at the 15:25 mark.

YPSILANTI, Mich. – A strong second-half rally fell apart in the last few minutes as the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped a 63-58 decision to a visiting Georgia State University team here Saturday, Feb. 21, afternoon in the Convocation Center in a Bracketbuster contest. The game was also the E-Club Athletics Hall of Fame contest. For the Eagles it came down to missed free throws as they connected on just 10-of-21 (47.6 percent) in the loss. With the loss, the Eagles fall to 4-23 overall on the season, while Georgia State improves to 10-18. The Eagles shot 41.2 percent from the field (21-of-51) compared to 44.7 percent (21-of-47) for the Panthers. The visitors also held a 37-32 advantage on the boards. Leading the way for the Eagles was freshman Antonio Green (Inkster, Mich.-Dearborn Heights Robichaud) with 13 points and a team-high seven rebounds. L.J. Frazier (Ypsilanti, Mich.-Ypsilanti) and Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) chipped in 12 and 11, respectively. For Georgia State, Dante Curry recorded a game-high 14 points, while Rashade Chase and Ousman Krubally added 11 each. After trailing by 29-18 at the half, the Eagles came out for the final 20 minutes and chipped away at Georgia State’s lead, gradually cutting it to two, 47-45, at the 5:26 mark on jumper by Green. The Eagles managed to knot the score at 50-all at the 4:22 mark on a three-point field goal by Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) but the Panthers bounced right back on a three by Dante Curry, followed by three free throws by Trae Goldston to go up 56-50 with 2:52 remaining in the game. Eastern would get no closer than four the rest of the way as GSU held on for the 63-58 win. It was a low-scoring affair during the first half of the game with the two teams trading scores for much of the half. The Panthers began to pull away late in the half, taking an 11-point lead, 29-18, heading into the break. Leading the way for the Eagles at the half was Frazier with seven points. For the visitors, Curry chipped in nine in the first frame. The Eagles will return to the friendly confines of the EMU Convocation Center Wednesday, Feb. 25 against the University of Toledo. Tip-off is schedule for 7 p.m.

CLUTCH FREE THROWS BY GREEN LEAD EAGLES TO WIN Freshman makes all three charity tosses with 13 seconds left MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — A trio of free throws by freshman Antonio Green (Inkster, Mich.- Robichaud) in the final seconds proved to be the difference Saturday night, Feb. 28, at Rose Arena, as the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team registered a 57-56 Mid-American Conference West Division victory over the Central Michigan University Chippewas. With Central Michigan holding a 56-54 lead with just 13 seconds remaining in the game, Green pump faked from beyond the three-point arc to draw a foul on CMU’s Jordan Bitzer, sending Green to the free throw line where he made all three freebies to give the Eagles a 57-56 lead. The Chippewas had one last shot, but when it fell short, EMU’s Tyler Jones (Belleville, Mich.-Belleville) managed to tie up the rebound on the floor as time expired, giving the Eagles their sixth win of the season against 23 losses. The victory helped the Eagles improve to 4-10 in league play. The loss drop CMU to 9-18 overall and 5-9 in the MAC. Green tallied eight points in the victory, while senior Zane Gay (Olivet, Mich.-Olivet) and redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) each tallied a team-best 12 points and five rebounds. CMU’s Marcus Van finished with a game-high 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting and grabbed nine boards. The Eagles and Chippewas went shot for shot in the opening frame, but with under a minute let and the shot clock winding down, Bowdry drew a foul from CMU’s Jacolby Hardiman at the three point line to earn three shots at the charity stripe. Bowdry hit drilled two of three from the line to put EMU ahead, 28-27. But the Chips would take the lead at intermission, as Adrian Hunter connected from long distance as time expired to give CMU a 30-28 advantage. The Eagles shot 47 percent (9-of-19) from the field in the first half, including 3-of-9 from beyond the arc, but CMU was not far behind, shooting 46 percent (12-of-26) from the field. The Eagles battled back to take the lead early in the second half, as Gay hit from long distance to give EMU a 37-36 advantage. Gay again came up with the big shot down the stretch, as his three point bomb with 3:45 remaining in the game put EMU ahead, 51-50. The Eagles managed to stay within striking distance down the stretch, as Green’s free throws in the final seconds coupled with stingy EMU defense allowed EMU to leave Rose Arena with the victory. EMU shot 64 percent (18-of-28) from the free throw line in the victory, while CMU shot just 6-of-10 from the charity stripe. The Eagles play their final home contest of the season Wednesday, March 4, as the Huskies of Northern Illinois University invade the Convocation Center for a 7 p.m. MidAmerican Conference West Division tilt. The Eagles look to avenge their loss to the Huskies from earlier this season when NIU registered a 72-52 win over EMU in DeKalb, Ill.

EAGLES MAKE IT FOUR IN A ROW WITH OT WIN Brandon Bowdry turns in sixth double-double of the season MUNCIE, Ind. — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team came back from an early deficit to win in overtime, as the Eagles held on for a 55-53 Mid-American Conference West Division win over Ball State University Sunday, March 8, in Worthen Arena. Eastern finished the regular season with four straight wins, two on the road, and the Eagles recorded an 8-23 overall record and a 6-10 MAC mark to finish the season. The win gives EMU the No. 10 seed for the tournament and the Eagles will square off against Central Michigan Tuesday, March 10, at noon in the first round of the FirstEnergy MAC Tournament in Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The Eagles were led by redshirt sophomore Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) with a double-double on 13 points with 11 rebounds. Junior center Justin Dobbins (Cleveland, Ohio-Glenville) added 11 points and nine rebounds while freshman guard Antonio Green (Inkster, Mich.-Dearborn Heights Robichaud) added 11. Ball State falls to 13-16 overall and 7-9 in MAC play. The Cardinals were led by Rob Giles with 18 points and 14 rebounds while Laron Frazier added 10. The Eagles held Ball State’s top two scoers, Jarrod Jones and Brandon Lampley to just seven and eight points respectively. Eastern had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Giles hit a big three with 24.5 seconds left to tie the game at 41-all and the Eagles turned in over with 6.3 seconds remaining, and BSU’s shot at the end of regulation was off the mark, forcing the overtime session. In overtime the Eagles jumped out to quick five-points lead, 46-41, on two free throws by Bowdry and a big three from Will Cooper (Detroit, Mich.-Pershing-Bridgton Academy). Eastern kept the advantage at four points before BSU’s Frazier tallied a long three with 23.5 left to cut the lead to 54-53. Green then hit the first of two free throws to give Eastern a 55-53 win. That score would prove to be the final as the home squad missed two shots in the final few seconds as EMU posted the overtime win. Ball State opened the game with a flurry, running out to a 13-2 advantage until Eastern slowly closed the gap, trailing by four, 23-19, at half. The second half proved to be a a tight one as both teams traded leads through the first 15 minutes before the final five minutes of regulation and another five minutes of overtime.

EAGLES FALL TO CMU IN MAC TOURNEY Bowdry leads EMU with 13 points and six boards CLEVELAND, Ohio – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team could not capture its third victory over the Central Michigan University Chippewas this season, as the Eagles saw their 2009 season come to an end with a 62-49 loss in the opening round of the FirstEnergy Mid-American Conference Tournament Tuesday afternoon, March 10, at Quicken Loans Arena. The Eagles finish the season with an 8-24 record, while the Chippewas improve to 12-18 and advance to the quarterfinals of the MAC Tournament to face No. 2 seeded Ball State University, Thursday, March 12, at noon. Redshirt sophomore forward Brandon Bowdry (St. Louis, Mo.-Taylor (Mich.) Truman) tallied a team-best 13 points and six rebounds in the loss, while CMU’s Marcus Van led all scorers with 17 points. Freshman guard Antonio Green (Inkster, Mich.-Robichaud) recorded 11 points for the Eagles on 4-for-9 shooting, including a trio of three-pointers. The Eagles found themselves down seven with 8:47 remaining in the opening frame, as CMU’s Adrian Hunter connected from long distance to give the Chips an 18-11 advantage. The Eagles managed to cut CMU’s lead to one, as a pair of Bowdry freebies with 6:12 remaining limited CMU to an 18-17 lead. The Chippewas held a 26-21 lead at intermission, as Van led all scorers with 11 points on 5-for-9 shooting from the field. The Eagles shot just 32 percent (6-for-19) in the first half, while CMU shot 46 percent (11-for-24) from the field and a maintained a 19-9 advantage on the boards. The Chippewas built extended their lead early in the second half, as Jordan Bitzer hit a jumper in the lane with 16:34 remaining to give CMU a 32-23 advantage – their largest lead of the game. The Eagles limited the Chippewas’ lead to three with 13:19 left in the contest, as a 10foot jumper by Bowdry made it a 32-29 game, forcing CMU head coach Ernie Zeigler to call a timeout. CMU responded after the timeout, as Robbie Harman gave the Chippewas a commanding 10 point lead after scoring seven consecutive points to put the Eagles down, 43-33, with 9:26 remaining. Jeremy Allen extended CMU’s lead to 13 points with 7:53 left, as his three-pointer from the corner gave the Chips a 48-35 advantage. The Eagles responded with a 7-0 run to pull within six points, 48-42, but a pair of free throws coupled with an easy layup by Jacolby Hardiman put the Eagles back down 10 points. The Chippewas kept the Eagles at arm’s length for the remainder of the contest to seal the victory and advance to the next round of the tournament.

Since the 1991 season, Eastern Michigan University athletic teams have gone by the nickname “Eagles.” The Eagles name was officially adopted on May 22, 1991, when the EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the existing Huron nickname and logo with the new one. EMU originally went by the nicknames“Normalites,”“Men from Ypsi” and various other titles through the years before “Hurons” was adopted in 1929. The “Hurons” first came into being as the result of a contest sponsored by the Men’s Union in 1929. Oct. 31 of that year, a three-person committee, composed of Dr. Clyde Ford, Dr. Elmer Lyman and Professor Bert Peet, selected the name“Hurons”from the many entries in the contest. The name was submitted by two students, Gretchen Borst and George Hanner. Hanner was working at the Huron Hotel at the time of the contest and was no doubt as much influenced by his place of employment as by the Huron Indian tribe. The runner-up name in that contest was Pioneers. EMU began investigating the appropriateness of its Huron. Indian logo after the Michigan Department of Civil Rights issued a report in October 1988 suggesting that all schools using such logos drop them. The report indicated that the use of Native American names, logos and mascots for athletic teams promoted racial stereotypes. At that time, four colleges, 62 high schools and 33 junior high/middle schools in Michigan used Indian logos or names. The EMU Board of Regents voted to replace the Huron name with Eagles, taken from three recommendations from a committee charged with supplying a new nickname. The other two final names submitted were Green Hornets and Express. The logos pictured below are the current EMU Athletic Department logos. EMU LOGOS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS
