Eagle All-Access Matt Shepard Play-by-Play for Football The 2013 season marks the 13th year that veteran Detroit-area broadcaster Matt Shepard will call the action on the field for the EMU football broadcast team. Shepard first handled EMU football play-by-play duties during the 1999 season. He returned in 2002, and has held the post for nine straight seasons. A widely known football and basketball broadcaster, Shepard is the voice of University of Michigan men’s basketball as well as the morning drive host on WDFN (1130 AM) in Detroit. During his career, he has called NFL Europe games for FOX and, in 2005, Arena Football League games for Fox Sports Net and was the broadcast voice for a pair of WNBA Championships by the Detroit Shock. Shepard’s Fox Sports Detroit resume also includes extensive work as a reporter for the Detroit Lions, Detroit Pistons and Detroit Tigers, and play-by-play work for the Michigan High School Athletic Association football state finals and the CCHA hockey television package. In 2004, Shepard hosted the EMU Football Review with Head Coach Jeff Genyk on Comcast Local television.

ABOUT EAGLE ALL-ACCESS Eagle All-Access is a “virtual stadium” – a seamless Internet experience – where viewers can follow all of EMU’s athletic programs and all of the Eagles’ content they desire without ever having to leave home. It is a one-stop-shop for live games, news conferences, coaches’ interviews and upto-the minute scores, news and highlights. Subscription packages are just $6.95 for a 24-hour pass, $10.95 for an entire month or $79.95 for a full calendar year. A minimum of 60 events are scheduled in 2013-14 with further dates still being finalized for broadcast on All-Access. During the 2012-13 campaign, EMU streamed 75 live events with other features appearing in the On-Demand Archive section. Eagle All-Access will video stream every home football, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball game. In the spring, All-Access shifts to audio-only in its coverage of EMU baseball and softball. ABOUT WEMU WEMU-FM will again serve as the flagship for EMU football and basketball broadcasts, as part of its broad coverage of EMU athletics. Listeners in eight counties can catch Eagles’ games on 89.1 FM. As a public radio station with a large broad-based audience, WEMU’s signal extends from Washtenaw County to the Detroit metropolitan and Toledo, Ohio markets. Eagle fans around the world can access live game broadcasts, compatible with a variety of software and media players, at http://wemu.org.

Rob Rubick Analyst for Football The 2013 season marks the return of Rob Rubick as the color analyst for the EMU football broadcast team. After two years as part of the Grand Valley State University radio crew, Rob Rubick reunites with Matt Shepard in the booth. Rubick worked 12th years (1998-2010) as part of the EMU broadcast team before returning to his alma mater. Following an eight-year career as a tight end with the Detroit Lions, Rubick has established himself as a superb analyst, providing detailed and pertinent commentary from an insider’s perspective. Rubick’s broadcasting resume includes analyst work for Grand Valley State University, Detroit Fury and MHSAA game broadcasts. He has also provided studio analysis for Fox Sports Net’s and WXYZ’s Lions coverage, while provided color commentary for the Lions preseasons games the past few seasons. Rubick received a master’s degree in education from EMU.

Chad Bush Play-by-Play for Men’s Basketball, Volleyball and Baseball The 2013-14 season marks the sixth consecutive year that Chad Bush has been calling baseball, volleyball and basketball games for Eastern Michigan University. Bush received the call to broadcast the baseball team’s 2009 Mid-American Conference Tournament run on Eagle All-Access, before adding a complete schedule of volleyball, women’s basketball, baseball and softball games in 2009-10. Then prior to the 2010-11 campaign, Bush was tabbed to take over the main responsibilities of EMU men’s and women’s basketball on WEMU, while still working select volleyball, baseball and softball games on Eagle All-Access. Prior to joining the Green and White, Bush served from 2006 until 2009 as the broadcaster of Wayne State University football and men’s basketball. A graduate of Orchard Lake St. Mary’s High School, Bush was on the football team at Central Michigan University before transferring to WSU to finish his degree in Speech Communication.

Ryan Wooley Play-by-Play for Women’s Basketball Ryan Wooley has pursued a career in sports broadcasting since his childhood and is proof that anybody can do whatever they put their mind to. Wooley grew up in Westland Michigan where he graduated from John Glenn High School and then went on to Eastern Michigan University, where he received a Bachelors degree in “Electronic Media and Film”. While at EMU, Ryan worked for WQBR, a student radio station where he served as the host of two shows per week. He also anchored the weekly news, delivered halftime updates during football and basketball on 89.1 WEMU, and handled the play by play for both football and basketball on the campus television station “E-TV”. Currently, Wooley is the play by play voice of the John Glenn High School football team as well as the EMU women’s basketball team on Eagle All-Access. In his free time, Ryan likes to work on cars, play video games, watch sports and hang out with friends. He currently resides in Belleville with his wife Michelle and daughter Lilly.

EMU COACHING STAFF

In his first season as the head coach, Rob Murphy made an immediate impact on the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball program. After Murphy was hired on April 21, 2011, he and his staff worked tirelessly to implent his defensive philosophy and begin the process of reviving the EMU men’s basketball program. During Murphy’s inaugural season, 2011-12, the Eagles won Eastern’s first-ever MidAmerican Conference West Division Championship. For his efforts in leading the team to that West championship, Murphy was named MAC Coach of the Year and CoCoach of the Year in the NCAA District 14 Division I ranks by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). Although unable to win a second consecutive MAC West title, the 201213 season proved to be another success under Murphy as the Eagles made their first trip to Cleveland, Ohio for the FirstEnergy MAC Tournament since the 2009-10 season. That squad reached the quarterfinal round before falling to Western Michigan. Coach Murphy has been on the staff of two outstanding college basketball programs and was also a highly successful high school head coach in Detroit, leading Crockett to the Class B State Championship in 2000-01 and was the associate head coach on the staff of the Detroit Central High School team that won the Class A state title in 1997-98. Murphy took over the EMU job with

32

a strong understanding of high school basketball in the state of Michigan. He spent six years coaching in the Detroit Public School League (1996-2002), four as the head boys basketball coach at Detroit Crockett Technical High School. A graduate of Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio, Murphy was a two-year starter on the basketball team and the team’s Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. After graduating from Central State, Murphy returned to his hometown of Detroit to begin his coaching career at Detroit Central High School as the associate head coach in 1996-98. Central won the state Class A championship in 1997-98 after finishing runner-up in 1996-97. Murphy then moved over to become the head boys basketball coach at Crockett H.S. and after his first team posted a 5-13 mark, the Rockets improved to win three consecutive Class B District titles and captured the state championship in 2000-01. His Crockett teams had a 64-27 record and he was named AllMetro Coach of the Year by the Detroit Free Press in 2000-01. From Crockett, Murphy joined the Kent State University staff for two seasons, 2002-03 and 2003-04, and the teams turned in back-to-back 22-9 seasons on the way to two Mid-American Conference East Division crowns. Both teams were invited to the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). After that successful twoyear stint as an assistant for the Golden Flashes, Murphy joined Head Coach Jim Boeheim’s Syracuse University men’s bas-

ketball program as an assistant. During his seven years on the staff, the Orange recorded a 180-67 overall record and played in the post season every year, with five NCAA appearances and two NIT stops. A native of Detroit, Murphy attended Mumford High School where he lettered in both football and basketball, earning All-State honors in football. He and his wife, TeNesha, have one son, Robert II (6) and a daughter, Ryann (3).

EMU COACHING STAFF

Mike Brown is in his third season on the men’s basketball staff at Eastern Michigan University and his second as the Associate Head Coach. In two seasons at EMU, Brown has been an integral part of the turn around of the men;s basketball program. An assistant men’s basketball coach at the University of South Alabama from 2009-2011 and an Ann Arbor native, Brown was named an EMU assistant, May 5, 2011. The 34-year-old Brown has basketball coaching experience on the high school, junior college and college levels, including two stints as a head coach. In 2008-09 Brown was the head coach at Motlow State Community College in Tullahoma, Tenn. and led that team to the Tennessee Junior College Athletic Association (TJCAA) championship with a 22-8 record while coaching three All-TJCAA players and one All-American. Motlow reached the semifinals of the TJCCAA Tournament, falling to host Cleveland State Community College. Brown coached Tim Williams, an All-American and the coTJCCAA Player of the Year. During the 2006-07 season, he was the head men’s basketball

34

For his efforts, was named the MCCAA Coach of the Year. All five sophomores on that Schoolcraft team signed with NCAA-Division I schools. Brown began his coaching career at nearby Belleville High School as an assistant boy’s basketball coach, helping lead the Tigers to a 21-2 record and the MEGA Red Division championship in 2004-05. From Belleville, Brown joined the Schoolcraft C.C. program as an assistant men’s basketball coach in 2005-06 and helped that team to a 23-5 record before taking over as the head coach the next season. Brown left Schoolcraft to join the Kent State University men’s basketball program as the director of basketball operations in 200708. In that season KSU won the Mid-American Conference regular season and tournament titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Four players earned all-MAC honors and one was an All-American. The Golden Flashes were also ranked in the Associated Press and ESPN Coaches’ polls during the season. After that one season at Kent State, Brown was named the head coach at Motlow and following that one year, moved on to the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Ala. where he was an assistant men’s basketball coach and recruiting coordinator from 2009 through

the 2011 season. As an intercollegiate basketball player, Brown earned four varsity letters at Siena Heights (Mich.) University (1998-2000) and Wayne State (Mich.) University (2000-02). Siena Heights posted a 58-15 mark in his two seasons with two trips to the NAIA National Tournament, including a national semifinals appearance and two conference titles. As a sophomore he led the team in scoring, assists, and steals, was a third team All-American and first team all-conference and was named to the all-defensive team and all-academic teams. He played his final two seasons at Wayne State, earning all-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors as a junior after leading the team in scoring, assists and steals. Brown was named the preseason player of the year in 2001 but played in only seven games after suffering a season-ending injury. While a high school player at Ann Arbor’s Huron H.S., Brown was a sixth-team All-Stater and first-team All-Area player as a senior in 199697. Brown earned both his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree at Wayne State University, completing his B.A. in business in 2002 and his M.A. in sport management in 2004.

EMU COACHING STAFF

Kevin Mondro is in his third year as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Eastern Michigan University. He was named to the post, June 1, 2011. During Mondro’s tenure at Eastern, he has coached an All-MidAmerican Conference forward as Glenn Bryant was named to the All-MAC Honorable Mention list in 2012-13. Mondro joined the EMU staff after spending three seasons as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Loyola (Chicago) University. “Kevin is one of the hardest working coaches in college basketball,” said Murphy. “He brings dedication and commitment to our staff along with a wealth of knowledge in all areas.” The 38-year-old Mondro is a 1997 graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy where he earned three basketball letters while playing for the Titans. After graduation, Mondro joined the UDM staff as a director of basketball operations for four years before being promoted to a fulltime assistant position in 1998-99. He was on the staff for 11 years, the final five as the associate head coach. He was also the interim

36

head coach for the second half of the 2007-08 season when Head Coach Perry Watson took a leave of absence. During his UDM coaching stint, Mondro was part of the staff that posted four straight 20-plus win seasons, including qualifying for the NCAA Tournament in both 1997-98 and 1998-99 as well as being selected for two National Invitation Tournament bids, in 2000-01 and 2001-02. At Detroit, Mondro worked primarily with the Titans’ perimeter players and his influence helped current Philadelphia 76ers guard Willie Green earn Horizon League Player of the Year accolades in 2003. In addition to his on-thecourt coaching, Mondro played an active role in scouting and in scheduling, while also serving as the staff ’s recruiting coordinator and director of the Perry Watson Basketball Camp. Mondro left Detroit after the 2007-08 season to join the Loyola (Chicago) University men’s basketball staff as an assistant coach. Mondro had a tremendous impact on the Loyola program during his three seasons on the staff, coaching two of the top players ever to wear the Maroon and Gold - J.R. Blount and Andy Polka. During his tenure, Loyola recorded 44 total wins, and the Ramblers graduated each of its seniors during that stretch. A native of Dover, New Hampshire, Mondro grew up in Brownstown, Michigan and graduated

from Riverview Gabriel Richard High School in 1993 after earning All-Catholic League honors as a basketball player.

EAGLES TOO MUCH FOR WOLVES, 82-38, IN EXHIBITION TILT EMU puts four players in double figures YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team started the 2012-13 campaign on a winning note, as Head Coach Rob Murphy’s Eagles used a high-powered offense to take down the visiting University of Michigan-Dearborn Wolves, 82-38, in the only preseason game of the year Friday, Nov. 2, at the Convocation Center. Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy (Arkansas)) paced the EMU offense with 21 points, while Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale (SEMO)) posted 17. Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent-St. Mary (Wyoming)) poured in 15 points of his own, including going 2-for-3 from beyond the arc. As a team, the Eagles shot 54.5 percent (30-of-55) from the floor and 42.1 percent (8-of-19) from three-point land. On the glass, Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich.-Cousino) grabbed seven caroms. Eastern opened the game with a 12-0 run, including a 3-for-5 showing from beyond the arc. The Wolves responded with a pair of triples by Julius Porter and brought them back to within six, 12-6. Bryant ended an almost three-minute scoring drought for the Eagles with a baseline jumper, putting EMU up, 14-6, with 10:46 remaining. The Eagles proceeded to go on an 11-5 run to charge ahead, 25-11. That it did not deter UM-Dearborn, which posted a nine-point run of its own with a trio of three-balls. The Eagles responded by putting up six-straight to lead, 31-20, with 3:16 remaining. The Green and White closed the half outscoring the Wolves by four, and led, 36-21, heading into the break. Bryant led all scorers in the opening half of the game with 15 points, while Harrison posted eight and Thompson poured in six. The Eagles shot a blistering 45.8 percent (11-of-24) from the field, while hitting 41.7 percent (5-of-12) of their shots from three-point land. EMU held the Wolves to just 28.0 percent (7-of-25) from the floor, but UM-Dearborn did knock down 42.9 percent (6-of-14) of its three-point shots including four from Porter. The second half started similar to the first with EMU going on a 12-0 run to make it 49-21 with just under 15 minutes remaining in the game. Porter hit another three-ball at the 14:10 mark to give the Wolves their first points of the half, but Eastern return-fired with an 11-0 run to extend the lead, 60-24. The Eagles continued to cruise through the remainder of the second half, outscoring the Wolves by 11 for the 82-38 finish. EMU shot a blistering 61.3 percent (19-of-31) from the floor in the second half, while going 3-of-7 from beyond the arc. Thompson led the EMU offense in the half with 11 points, while Balkema and Still each came up with six in the final 20 minutes. J.R Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.Snider) and Austin Harper (Grand Haven, Mich.-Grand Haven (Western Michigan/Glen Oaks C.C.)) each added five points apiece.

MEN’S HOOPS OPENS SEASON WITH 66-52 WIN Victorious EMU kicks off “Ice Man” Classic YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team officially kicked off the 2012-13 college basketball season and the EMU “Ice Man” Classic with a 66-52 victory over Rochester College Friday, Nov. 9, inside the friendly confines of the Convocation Center. Prior to the contest, the 2011-12 EMU men’s basketball team received their championship rings and raised a banner for capturing the MAC West Division crown one year ago. Three Eagles reached double digits as senior Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich. - Melvindale) led the way with 14 points followed by 12 points each from redshirt junior Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio - St. Vincent St. Mary) and true freshman Ray Lee (Detroit, Mich. - Romulus). Rochester’s Maynard led all scorers with 27 points. EMU’s bench proved to be a huge factor throughout the contest outscoring the opponent 35-2. The Green and White shot 49.0 percent from the floor while the Warriors shot 40.4 percent during the game. The Eagles also dominated the boards grabbing 39 rebounds compared to Rochester’s 22, leading to 14 second chance points. With the victory, Eastern moves to 1-0 on the season, and Rochester drops to 5-2. EMU never allowed Rochester to lead in the contest. Both teams had to gather themselves as the game started out slow, but Harrison began the scoring, converting on three free-throws after getting fouled shooting from beyond the arc. That sparked a 9-3 Eagles run to begin the game into the first media timeout. The Eagles did not let off the gas as Head Coach Rob Murphy’s 2-3 zone defense along with back-to-back three-balls and a Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich. - Oak Hill Academy) dunk gave EMU a 19-5 lead. After being held scoreless for six minutes, Rochester responded, finding holes in the EMU zone prompting a 7-0 run for the Warriors to cut the Eagle’s lead in half. Thompson ended the 12-0 Rochester run with a three-pointer as the senior scored 11-of-17 first half bench points. However, Rochester senior Drew Maynard kept his team in the game by scoring half (14) of his team’s points as EMU went into the locker room with a 31-28 halftime lead. The Eagles and Warriors went back-and-forth to start the second half. A Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich. - Warren Cousino) put-back sparked a 7-0 EMU run as the Eagles built a 51-37 lead midway through the second half. Rochester would not go away though, as Stavros Schizaas’ three got the Warriors back within single digits at 52-44 with 7:10 remaining in the game. One minute later, the Green and White were able to get into the double-bonus taking advantage of Rochester’s foul trouble and going on an 11-0 run to put the game away.take a 43-29 lead and boosted that to 18 points with 16:57 left on two quick threes from Sims. From that point, Eastern would methodically boost its advantage to 25, 74-49, with 3:49 left and cruise to the 85-51 victory.

A trio of Detroit natives assisted in the win as Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy) added 11 points, Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit Mich.-Detroit Count. Day) posted 8 points to go with 11 rebounds, and Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale) followed with 7 points of his own. Averaging 15 points per game throughout the tournament, Thompson was named the “Ice Man” Classic’s Most Valuable Player. The Green and White exploited its size advantage, out-rebounding the Broncs, 39-27. The plus-12 rebounding margin led to 18 second-chance points and 30 points in the paint.

EAGLES NAB SIXTH STRAIGHT HOME VICTORY, 47-44, OVER PURDUE EMU posts first win over Big Ten school since 1997 YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team held off Purdue University, 47-44, Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Convocation Center. The Eagles (6-2) defeated a Big Ten Conference opponent for the first time since an 89-83 overtime victory against the University of Michigan, Dec. 17, 1997, in Ann Arbor. Saturday’s win was the first home victory over a Big Ten team since a 92-76 throttling of Wisconsin, Dec. 10, 1994 at venerable Bowen Field House. The Green and White trailed by as many as nine points early in the first half, but were behind by just one at the break after closing the period on a 6-0 run. Efficient three-point shooting and solid defense contributed to the Eagles charging ahead by as many as 10 in the second frame. A late push by the Boilermakers (4-5) proved not to be enough as the Eagles remained undefeated (6-0) at home this season. As a team, Eastern Michigan shot 17-of-55 (30.9 percent) for the game and 5-of-18 (27.8 percent) from long distance. Following a 0-for-8 mark from three-point range in the opening 20 minutes, EMU caught fire to the tune of a 5-of-10 effort in the second half. Senior Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale) had a pair of those three-pointers and led the Eagles in scoring with eight points. Saturday’s win was truly a team effort as all 10 players that saw action scored at least two points. Redshirt junior Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent-St. Mary’s) hauled in 11 boards and added four points. EMU also won the turnover battle, forcing 18 Purdue turnovers while making just five of its own. The Eagles also picked the Boilermakers’ pocket 11 times, with nine players turning in at least one steal. Junior Da’Shote Riley (Detroit, Mich.Detroit Country Day) and redshirt junior Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy) each posted a pair of blocks on the afternoon. For the Boilermakers, Terone Johnson (12 points), A.J. Hammons (11) and Ronnie Johnson (11) all reached double figures despite the rest of the team only contributing a total of 10 points. Purdue shot just under 30 percent for the game (14-of-47) and was 4-of-14 (28.6 percent) from downtown. Action began with the Eagles forcing a pair of early turnovers. However it would be the Boilermakers who would put away the first seven points of the game with Eastern Michigan failing to convert on its first five shots. A J.R. Sims’ (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) jumper at the 15:59 mark gave the Eagles their first points of the game and cut the deficit to 7-2. Ronnie Johnson made it an 11-2 score for Purdue before EMU put together a mini 5-0 run to again trail by five, 11-7. Freshman Ray Lee (Detroit, Mich.-Romulus) gave a great individual effort, driving the lane and scoring the basket while drawing a foul. Senior Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich.-Cousino) started and finished EMU’s next possession, grabbing the defensive board before putting back Lee’s missed three-pointer to bring EMU to within three, 14-11, with 6:18 to play. Purdue went 4:28 without a point until Ronnie Johnson sunk a pair of free throws at the 4:17 mark. Meanwhile, the Eagles were having trouble at the charity stripe, converting on just one of their first seven attempts. Eastern Michigan’s defense was efficient in the latter stages of the opening half, notching turnovers on three straight possessions while keeping Purdue off the scoreboard. The Eagles took full advantage of a pair of those turnovers, with Sims and Harrison cashing in. Lee added a jumper with four ticks remaining on the clock to send the Green and White to the locker room down by just one, 20-19. The period ended with EMU scoring seven points off of 11 Purdue turnovers. In contrast, the Eagles committed just three

EMU HOOPS FALLS IN WINDY CITY TUSSLE, 74-48 Eagles drop to 6-3 on the season CHICAGO, Ill. (EMUEagles.com) – In a battle between two of the best defensive teams in the country, the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team fell on the road in the Windy City to the University of Illinois-Chicago Flames, 74-48, Saturday afternoon, Dec. 15 at UIC Pavilion. Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy) led EMU in scoring and rebounding in the loss, notching 10 points and grabbing seven rebounds. J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) scored nine points, and Antoine Chandler (Windor, Ontario-W.F. Herman Secondary) added a career-high six points off the bench for the Green and White, who fall to 6-3 on the season. The Eagles ended the contest with a 33.9 shooting percentage. Former Eagle and Current UIC guard Daniel Barnes scored a career-high 30 points to lead UIC, shooting 6-of-13 from three point range. UIC shot 12-of-29 from beyond the arc including 9-of-13 in the second half. Fellow guard Gary Talton netted a dozen for the Flames as they improve their record to 9-1. UIC shot 17-of-28 in the second half to shoot 46.3 percent from the floor for the game. Surprisingly, both teams got off to fast starts as both teams hit 4 of their first 7 shots. Barnes hit two threes, giving UIC an early 10-8 cushion. Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.-Greensboro Day School) nailed a three to give the Eagles the lead; however, the Flames answered as Barnes converted the old-fashioned three point play to give the lead back to his team. On the next UIC offensive possession, Barnes hit two more freethrows, giving him 10 points and UIC a 14-11 advantage with 13:11 remaining in the first half. Derek Thompson’s (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale) jumper made it 16-15 in favor of UIC at the 10:44 mark in the opening half. The game slowed down immensely as both teams’ defenses settling in, and the offenses struggling to get any shots to fall. The game’s next point would not come until over six minutes later when UIC’s Gary Talton was intentionally fouled on a breakaway. Maintaining possession of the basketball, Barnes drilled another three to give the Flames a five point lead, 20-15 with 3:47 to go in the opening stanza. With the Eagles trailing, 24-15, with 1:30 remaining in the first twenty minutes, Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Detroit Country Day) finally ended EMU’s nine minute scoring drought with a thunderous dunk as he was fouled. Riley missed his free throw, but Eastern kept the ball after UIC knocked it out of play. Riley took advantage of the second chance opportunity with a turnaround jumper from fifteen feet, and EMU went into halftime trailing 24-19. EMU outshot (37.5 percent-30.8 percent) and outrebounded (20-16) UIC in the first half, but it was the Flames’ conversion of 12 points off 11 turnovers that gave them the lead at the break. The Eagles held UIC to 3-of-16 shooting from beyond the arc in the first half, but the Flames came out on fire to start the final twenty minutes. UIC hit its first four attempts as Barnes drained two more from long range along with Talton and Hayden Humes to give UIC a double-digit lead, 36-24 with 15:27 remaining in the game. The Flames continued to be blistering from downtown, as a 10-2 run with help from another pair of treys, increased the difference to 20 and prompted EMU Head Coach Rob Murphy to take a timeout. Following the timeout, Eastern responded with back-to-back buckets, but the Flames continued to find success on their side of the floor, keeping the game out of reach by outscoring the Eagles 50-29 in the second half.

MEN’S HOOPS DROPS ROAD TILT TO NO.2 MICHIGAN Ross and Chandler ser career highs, but EMU loses second straight ANN ARBOR, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) —The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team’s bid to knock off a second-straight Big Ten Conference opponent fell short in a 93-54 loss to the No. 2-ranked University of Michigan Thursday evening, Dec. 20, at the Crisler Center. The Eagles (6-4) held the lead early on a pair of three-pointers by freshman Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.-Greensboro Day) and redshirt junior Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy), but a fast-paced Wolverines’ (12-0) offense quickly turned the tables and owned the lead for the remainder of the contest. Redshirt junior Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent St. Mary) tallied 13 points on the evening and Bryant knocked down 10 to lead the Eagles offensively. Ross’ nine points were good for a career high and sophomore Antoine Chandler’s (Windsor, Ontario-W.F. Herman) eight points set a personal best as well. Overall, the Green and White went 22-of-62 (35.5 percent) including a 7-of-26 (26.9 percent) performance from beyond the arc. EMU went to the line just six times in the game, converting three. For Michigan, Tim Hardaway, Jr. led the way with 17 points and was one-of-five Wolverines to hit double figures. Mitch McGary turned in a double-double effort with 10 points and 11 boards. U-M shot a blistering 50.7 percent (35-of-69) from the floor and was just as efficient from long range, going 12-of-24 (50.0 percent). Trey Burke opened the scoring for Michigan off an EMU turnover, but Ross answered with a trey of his own, and Bryant did the same in back-to-back possessions to put the Eagles ahead, 6-2, less than two minutes in. But a rash of turnovers and missed shots combined with stealthy play in transition by the Wolverines allowed Michigan take an 18-6 lead as Head Coach Rob Murphy called his second timeout of the half with 12:45 showing. U-M would string together 20 consecutive points before a Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale) jumper snapped EMU’s skid at the 10:40 mark and made it 22-10 for the home team. A Bryant block led to a fast-break jumper by Ross with 3:19 to go and cut U-M’s lead to 3720. Another make by Ross and one from redshirt junior J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) before halftime made it a 16-point EMU deficit, 40-24, after 20 minutes. Ross led all EMU scorers at the break with nine points on 4-of-5 shooting with one longrange bucket. As a team, the Eagles shot 10-of-28 (35.7 percent) and 3-of-10 (30.0 percent) from beyond the arc. Despite their opponent’s 40-point output, the Eagles managed six blocks with three credited to junior Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Detroit Country Day), two to Bryant and one to senior Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio-Euclid). Burke paced the Wolverines with 11 points as Michigan completed the first half 16-of-36 (44.4 percent) overall with a 6-of13 (46.2 percent) effort from three-point range. The storyline remained the same in the second half, with EMU keeping pace, 49-32, following a Bryant three-pointer. Glenn Robinson III’s and-one layup and McGary’s fast-break bucket promptly nullified EMU’s short rally and gave U-M its largest lead of the evening to that point, 54-32, with 14:15 left. Chandler chimed in with his first points of the game off a three-point basket, and Harrison filled a layup and his free throw to bring EMU back to within 19, 64-45, at the 8:46 mark. The Green and White were unable to come any closer to pulling off an upset, as Michigan complied a 29-9 run over the final eight minutes of play to cruise to the 39-point victory, 93-54.

EMU COMEBACK FALLS SHORT, 59-57 Eagles drop first home court contest of the season YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped its first home contest of the season, falling to the Oakland Golden Grizzles, 59-57. Oakland’s quick ball movement and a first half deficit were too much for the Eagles to overcome despite late game heroics. Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.-Greensboro Day) scored a career-high 17 points shooting 6-of-13, while Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio-Euclid) led Eastern’s defensive effort with two blocks, two steals, and six rebounds. Oakland’s Travis Bader led all scorers with 21 points; shooting a perfect 6-of-6 from the line and nailing five triple tries. Eastern (6-5) shot 19-of-47 (40.4 percent) for the game, while Oakland (5-8) went 17-of-54 (31.5 percent). Oakland opened the scoring with a three from Ryan Bass. The Grizzles took an early 8-2 lead assisted by two quick turnovers by Eastern. Junior Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich. -Detroit Country Day) worked the glass impressively for the Eagles, tallying five rebounds in the opening 10 minutes of play and eight total on the day. Tough defense by Harris and seven first-half points from the hot hand of Ross kept the Eagles in the contest. Glenn Bryant’s (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy) huge dunk energized the entire Convocation Center and brought the Eagles back to within a two score game. Bryant then closed the half for Eastern with a long three. However, the Grizzles countered with a 4-0 run to extend their lead to 29-21. The Eagles shot 9-of-23 (39.1 percent) from the field in the first half scoring eight in the paint. The Grizzlies, who looked committed to taking three points shots, went 8-of-26 (30.8 percent) from the field and specifically 4-of-12 (33.3 percent) from downtown. Oakland opened the second half on a 6-0 run before Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.Melvindale) responded with a floater in the lane opening an 8-0 run for the Eagles. Midway through the half, Oakland scoring threat Bader hit back-to-back threes before EMU Head Coach Rob Murphy called a timeout to refocus his squad. The timeout worked, as Ross answered with a quick three of his own immediately following the break. Four hard-earned points and solid defensive play from junior Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent-St. Mary) powered an 11-4 Eastern run that cut Oakland’s lead to 49-40 with eight minutes remaining in the game. A late six-point surge by Thompson pulled Eastern to within two, which opened the door for Ross to tie the game up with two made free throws and a go-ahead layup by Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich.-Cousino). Balkema’s first points of the game gave Eastern their first lead of the afternoon. After Oakland retook the lead, smart defensive play earned redshirt junior J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) free throws and the opportunity to take the lead or send it to overtime. He converted 1-of-2 to tie the game. Oakland’s Bass, who scored the opening points of the contest, drained a mid-range jumper to take the lead with only five seconds remaining. The Eagles were unable to score on their final possession and in turn failed to defend home court for the first time this season.

MEN’S HOOPS ROLLS PAST SIENA HEIGHTS, 87-49 Eagles put four in doubles figures, set season-high mark offensively YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team snapped its three-game losing skid with a convincing 87-49 victory over Siena Heights University Friday, Dec. 28, at the Convocation Center. The Eagles (7-5) started the game on a 14-0 run and did not look back. EMU shot 55.0 percent (33-of-60) from the floor and 6-of-14 (42.9 percent) from beyond the arc en route to their largest offensive output of the 2012-13 campaign. In addition to moving to 7-1 inside the Convocation Center, the Green and White held an opponent to less than 50 points for the fourth time this season. Senior Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale) notched a game-high 17 points and was one-of-four EMU players to hit double figures. Thompson was dangerous from outside, going 5-of-9 from three-point land and 6-of-10 overall. Setting a career-high in the scoring column was junior Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.Detroit Country Day), whose 5-for-6 effort gave him 10 points on the afternoon. Riley also chipped in on the defensive side of the ball with five blocks and five boards. Redshirt juniors Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent St. Mary) and Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich,-Oak Hill Academy) tallied 15 and 13 points, respectively. The Saints (4-11) struggled offensively particularly in the first half, when they amassed just 16 points. In the second stanza, Siena Heights scored 33 points to finish the game 17-of-53 (32.1 percent) with an 8-of-24 (33.3 percent) showing from three-point range. Ryan Hopson led all SHU scorers with 11 points. Eastern Michigan poured in the first 14 points of the game, with the Saints scoring their first bucket with 14:45 showing on the first-half clock. Harrison led the early charge with six points on 3-of-3 shooting, while Riley added a pair of jumpers for four points. With Siena Heights struggling to hit shots at a 20-percent (2-of-10) clip after nine minutes of play, Thompson was busy draining back-to-back three-pointers to increase the EMU lead to 20-5. As the first half wore on, the Eagles continued to convert field goals at rate of better than 50 percent while holding the Saints under 25 percent. A Thompson make at the 2:27 mark grew the Green and White’s lead to 30, 44-14. Jamison Webster ended a span of 6:30 in which the Saints did not register a point when he filled a fast-break layup with 28 ticks on the clock. What appeared to be a buzzer-beating trey from Corey Hungerford was overturned to send EMU to the locker room with a 47-16 advantage. EMU’s offense showed no mercy on the Saints in the first half, shooting a blistering 58.1 percent (18-of-31) overall and 42.9 percent (3-of-7) from long distance. The Eagles capitalized on 11 Saints’ turnovers to the tune of 26 points. Thompson led all scorers at the break with 11 points. Hopson paced the Saints’ offense in the first half with 10 points. As a team, Siena Heights was just 6-of-26 (23.1 percent) from the floor with three of those buckets coming from downtown. The Eagles increased their lead to 40, 72-32, with 8:14 left in the game when Bryant walked in all alone for the slam. Harrison and Thompson continued to be efficient for EMU, with Thompson tossing in his fourth and fifth three-pointers of the game in back-to-back possessions. Siena Heights outscored the Eagles, 17-15, over the final eight minutes of play, but it would not be enough to put a dent in EMU’s large lead 2013-2014 EASTERN MICHIGAN

EAGLES OPEN 2013 WITH LOSS AGAINST DEFENDING CHAMPION WILDCATS EMU closes out non-conference slate Saturday at UMass LEXINGTON, Ky. (EMUEagles.com) — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped a 90-38 decision to the defending National Champion University of Kentucky Wednesday evening, Jan. 2, at Rupp Arena. The Eagles (7-6) opened the scoring but quickly fell behind en route to starting the 2012-13 campaign 0-5 away from the Convocation Center. Redshirt junior Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.Oak Hill Academy) scored a team-best 10 points for an EMU squad which managed to go just 15-of-62 (24.2 percent) from the floor. Junior Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Detroit Country Day) also hauled down nine rebounds. The Wildcats (9-4) put five players in double figures, with Willie Cauley-Stein registering a double-double (11 points, 11 rebounds) and Kyle Wiltjer leading all scorers with 17. Kentucky dominated from outside to the tune of 10-of-26 (38.5 percent) and was 31-of-60 (51.7 percent) overall. From the charity stripe, UK went 18-of-24 (75 percent). The home team also controlled the glass, out-rebounding the Eagles, 52-27. Redshirt junior Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent St. Mary) opened the scoring with a three-pointer before the Wildcats rattled off seven points in-a-row to force Head Coach Rob Murphy to take a time out three minutes into the contest. At the 15:40 mark, Harrison broke a streak of 4:06 without an EMU bucket to make it a 9-5 game. The EMU defense held Kentucky without a field goal through the second media timeout at 11:55, with the only UK points coming by way of a pair of free throws from Alex Poythress. But the Eagles were unable to muster any offense themselves until Bryant filled a mid-range jumper to cut the deficit to 13-7. Offensive woes continued to plague the Eagles through the middle portion of the half. The Green and White converted only four of its first 17 shots as Kentucky built up a 30-7 lead with 5:22 showing on the clock. Harris broke another EMU scoreless streak at the 6:20 mark with a slam off a Kentucky turnover. With 20 minutes in the books, Kentucky held a 38-14 lead. The Eagles were held to a 21.4 percent (6-of-28) clip from the floor and 12.5 percent (1-of-8) from downtown. EMU went to the line just one time as the Wildcats committed just three fouls. Kentucky benefited from a 12-of-16 (75 percent) effort from the charity stripe and added 13 points off of 12 Eastern Michigan turnovers. At the break, Ryan Harrow led the way offensively with nine points for the Wildcats, while Bryant had five to pace the Eagles. Fortunes did not turn in the Eagles’ favor to start the second half as Kentucky amassed a 15-0 run while EMU failed to convert on its first 10 shots of the frame. Ross chimed in with the Eagles’ first score of the half with a three-pointer at the 13:30 mark to break a streak of 8:37 without a basket. A pair of buckets from freshman Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.-Greensboro Day School), one by Bryant and another from Harrison gave the Eagles a 9-2 run of their own which made the score 56-23, but efficient Kentucky shooting eliminated the chance of a comeback and put the home team even further ahead, 62-23, with 10:37 to play. Eastern Michigan finished the second half scoring 24 points while allowing 52. Redshirt junior Austin Harper (Grand Haven, Mich.-Grand Haven) turned in a strong second stanza, playing 11 minutes while picking up seven points.

EAGLESCOMPLETENON-CONFERENCESLATEWITH75-61SETBACKAT UMASS EMU opens MAC action with Ball State Wednesday, Jan 9 AMHERST, Mass. (EMUEagles.com) - The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team wrapped up its non-conference slate with a 75-61 setback on the road against the University of Massachusetts Saturday afternoon, Jan. 5. The Eagles head into Mid-American Conference play with a 7-7 record. Trailing by 13 at the half, the Green and White started the second stanza 6-of-6 from the floor and pulled back to within four. But the Minutemen (10-3) were able to keep pace and preserve their lead with 11 three-pointers on the afternoon. Redshirt junior J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) came within a point of his personal-best with 12 and was one-of-three EMU players to reach double figures. Redshirt junior Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy) turned in his second double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 boards. Despite early foul trouble, senior Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio-Euclid) recorded 10 points for EMU. As a team, the Eagles went 23-of-53 (43.4 percent) from the field which included a 6-of-15 (40 percent) showing from beyond the arc. EMU edged the Minutemen on the glass, 35-30, but committed 20 turnovers which led to 28 UMass points. UMass had four players score 10-or-more points including Freddie Riley, who threw down 18 on 6-of-9 shooting from three-point range. Chaz Williams (14 points), Maxie Esho (13 points) and Jesse Morgan (11 points) were the other Minutemen to reach double digits. The Minutemen finished the game shooting 26-of-58 (44.8 percent) overall and 11-of-25 (44 percent) from long range. Sloppy ball handling was the story early on for the Eagles, who fell behind, 8-2, while surrendering six turnovers. But a Bryant block led to a dunk in transition by junior Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Detroit Country Day), which was followed by a Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.Greensboro Day) three-pointer. That cut the deficit to one, 8-7, with 14:14 to play. Senior Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale) gave the Green and White its first lead of the afternoon, 11-10, when he struck from downtown off a feed from Ross. That advantage did not last, however, as UMass connected on seven of its first 13 tries from beyond the arc including five from Riley to take a 27-15 edge with seven minutes left. After breaking a 13-13 tie earlier in the half, UMass closed the first period outscoring EMU, 25-10, for a 13-point advantage, 38-25. Bryant’s seven points led the way for the Eagles, who went 8-of-25 (32 percent) from the floor and 2-of-4 (50 percent) from three-point land. Of the Minutemen’s 31 first-half shots, 17 came from behind the three-point line and nine hit paydirt for a 52.9 percent clip. UMass was 12-of-31 (38.7 percent) shooting and was paced by Riley’s 15 points. EMU’s converted on each of its first six shots to begin the second half and made it a four-point contest, 44-40, less than five minutes in. Redshirt junior Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent St. Mary) made it a six-point affair, 42-36, when he filled a jumper and Bryant benefited from a favorable bounce off the rim at 15:33 to bring the Eagles to within four. The Minutemen responded with a 10-0 run and opened up a 14-point spread. Harrison snapped that run with a bucket. Despite continued efficiency on the offensive side of the ball, the Eagles failed to cut into their deficit, which remained 15 points, 63-48, with 7:33 left. At that point, EMU was converting at a better-than 50-percent pace (9-of-17), but UMass was 11-of-18 (61.1 percent). Thompson hit a three-pointer with 22 seconds remaining to put EMU over the 60-point plateau, but it would not be enough as the Eagles fell for a sixth-consecutive game on the road.

EAGLES DROP LOW-SCORING TILT TO AIR FORCE EMU scores just 37 points in Cable Car Classic setback SANTA CLARA, Calif. (EMUEagles.com) — In the first Mid-American Conference game of the season, the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team fell in the final second against the Ball State University Cardinals, 60-58, Wednesday night, Jan. 9, at the Convocation Center. Chris Bond converted two free throws with 0.6 seconds left to give the Cardinals a two point win. The junior forward was perfect from the field making all eight of his shots and leading Ball State with 18 points. Jauwan Scaife also added 18 points for BSU, including four three-pointers. Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich. – Melvindale) led the Eagles in scoring, bringing in 16 points and sinking 8-of-9 shots from the charity stripe. J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind. – Snider) tied his season high with 12 points as the Eagles’ bench outscored the Cardinals’ bench, 28-2. The two MAC rivals were impressive from the floor all night long. Ball State drained 24-of-41 shots (58.5 percent) while Eastern made 21-of-41 (51.2 percent). The Cardinals controlled the boards, out-rebounding the Eagles, 29-16. EMU forced 19 turnovers while only giving up 11, but it was not enough as the Green and White dropped to 7-8 on the season and 0-1 in MAC play. With the victory, Ball State improved to 7-6 and 1-0 in the conference. Eastern began the scoring with a quick steal and breakaway layup by Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich. – Oak Hill Academy). Ball State responded with a layup of its own from Majok Majok within the first minute of the game. A minute later, Bryant took another steal to the hoop for a one-handed slam to give the lead back to the Eagles. Once again Ball State answered, this time with an NBA-ranged 3-pointer and a fastbreak layup, to give the Cardinals a 7-4 lead with 17:06 remaining in the opening half. Ball State continued its hot start hitting seven of its first eight shots, three of which came from beyond the arc, for a 17-11 lead. The Eagles’ defense tightened up forcing two turnovers, while the offense scored eight straight points to take back the lead, 19-17. After a nearly five-minute scoring drought for BSU, the Cardinals regained the lead after forcing two turnovers and scoring six points to make it a 23-19 game. Head Coach Rob Murphy took a timeout at the 6:47 mark in the first half. After the Eagles cut the lead to one, the Cardinals nailed back-to-back threes to give them a 31-24 advantage. With 1:23 remaining in the first half, things got heated between the two MAC foes. Following a scramble on the floor that led to a personal foul on Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich. – Cousino), the EMU senior exchanged words with Jesse Berry and both players were assessed technical fouls. With both players left on the bench for the remainder of the half, a bucket by Harris made it a 33-28 Cardinal lead at halftime. Scaife led Ball State with 11 first-half points, going 3-of-5 from the three-point line. Sims paced the Eagles with seven points off the bench as EMU outscored Ball State, 9-0, in bench points. The biggest difference in the first half came from beyond the arc where BSU sank 5-of-9 threes, while Eastern struggled, making only 1-of-6 attempts. Coming out for the second half, the Cardinals increased their lead to eight, 41-33, following a breakaway dunk by Chris Bond. After a block on the defensive end by Harris, he converted a bucket down low, courtesy of a nice look from Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio – St. Vincent-St. Mary) to cut the lead to four. With the Eagles down one and looking to take their first lead since early in the first half, Ball State was determined to hang on to the lead, going on a seven-point run to make it 52-44 with 7:42 remaining. Thompson interrupted the run with a long three, but the Eagles failed to convert free throws in the bonus, missing two front-ends of one-and-one attempts to keep the game in favor of the Cardinals. Another Thompson three-pointer kept EMU within striking distance, and a five-second violation gave the Eagles the ball back with only 3:28 showing on the clock. Following the final media timeout, Thompson gave the team three points after being fouled on another three point attempt, making the game 56-54 with the Cardinals on top. After both teams exchanged turnovers, Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio – Euclid) grabbed a missed BSU three and Coach Murphy asked for a timeout to set up a play with just 1:42 to go in the game. The play was set up for Thompson as the senior guard launched a three off a screen, but couldn’t connect. Although Ball State grabbed the rebound, the Eagles’ def Scaife missed the first free throw attempt, but an offensive rebound kept the ball with the Cardinals. With a second chance, Scaife converted both free throws to make it a four-point game. Sims drove quickly down the court for a layup, cutting the lead in half. Eastern was forced to foul again, causing Thompson to foul out of the contest with 14 seconds to go. A missed free throw and defensive rebound gave the Eagles life and Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day School) drove down the lane, drawing a foul. Ross drained the pressure free throws to tie the game with 8.3 seconds left. The Cardinals quickly advanced the ball up the court, and Bond drew a foul on Riley with just 0.6 left on the clock. Bond calmly made both free throws and the Cardinals knocked away the in-bound heave to hang on to a 60-58 win over the Eagles.

LATE BOWLING GREEN THREE DROPS EMU HOOPS, 46-44 Eagles drop to 7-9 on the season, 0-2 in MAC play BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team fell in the closing seconds Saturday, Jan. 12 in Bowling Green, as a Jordon Crawford three with six seconds left gave the Falcons a two-point advantage over the Eagles, 46-44. Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich. – Melvindale) led the Eagles in scoring with 11 points off the bench, all in the second half. Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich. – Detroit Country Day) added seven points and 10 rebounds while Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio – Euclid) added six points and 11 boards. Eastern (7-9, 0-2 MAC) shot 15-of-32 for a 28.8 shooting percentage on the evening, going 5-of20 from the floor in the second half. The Eagles did find success at the foul line, making 10-of12 free throws. A’uston Calhoun led Bowling Green (6-9, 1-1 MAC) in both scoring and rebounding with 17 points and 7 caroms. Crawford was the only other Falcon in double-digits with 11 points. BGSU shot 18-of-52 from the floor for 34.6 percent as the Eagles’ defense forced 20 turnovers and held the Falcons to 5-of-22 shooting from beyond the arc. Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich. – Oak Hill Academy) got the Eagles the lead to start the contest on a smooth jumper from the charity stripe. After the Falcons responded with a bucket of their own, Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day School)nailed a three from the top of the key. A few possessions later, Ross took a steal to the bucket and couldn’t convert. However, Harris was there for the put-back slam to make it 7-2 EMU three minutes into the game. The Green and White defense came to play, forcing four turnovers along with just 2-of-9 shooting for the Falcons in the first seven minutes of the contest. After Calhoun scored the first eight points for BGSU, the Falcons took its first lead of the game with a three-pointer from Crawford. However, EMU took the lead right back with a jumper to Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio – St. Vincent-St. Mary). J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind. – Snider) added a layup to increase the lead to three, 14-11 with 9:06 remaining in the first half. The two MAC foes continued to go back-and-forth throughout the rest of a tightly-contested first half. Following four straight points by the Falcons to give them the lead back at the 3:17 mark of the first half, Head Coach Rob Murphy took a timeout to rally his squad. The timeout paid off as Eastern went on a 7-0 run to end the half, going into the locker room with a 25-20 lead. The Eagles shot 31.3 percent in the first half led by seven points from Harrison. Harris turned in an impressive first twenty minutes with six points and eight rebounds. On the defensive side of the ball, EMU forced 14 turnovers and didn’t let Calhoun score for the rest of the half after he scored the Falcons’ first eight points. Bowling Green came out firing on all cylinders to start the second half, making 4-of-6 shots and forcing five EMU turnovers to go on a 9-0 to take a 29-25 lead with 15:18 remaining in the game. Thompson finally ended the five-minute scoring drought, converting two free throws to cut the lead in half. The senior guard then added a deep three to give EMU the lead back. After both teams exchanged buckets and the lead, Eastern held a 32-31 advantage at the 12:43 mark of the second half. The Eagles’ defense continued to play a tough 2-3 zone defense as Bowling Green went through a six-minute stretch without a field goal. BGSU guard Anthony Henderson changed that, hitting a three to tie the game at 41. On the other side of the floor, Eastern answered with a Riley turnaround, baseline jumper to make it 43-41 EMU going into the final media timeout at the 3:55 mark. With the Green and White holding on to a slim one-point advantage, Bowling Green missed a three, but forced a jump ball to retain possession with only 12 seconds left. Coming out of a timeout, Crawford nailed a three from the top of the key to give the Falcons a 46-44 lead with six seconds remaining in the game, and Coach Murphy took a timeout to talk things over. Out of the stoppage of play, Thompson drove and launched a deep three that fell short of the rim as Bowling Green held on to take the win, 46-44.

EAGLES THROW BLOCK PARTY IN 58-52 WIN OVER CHIPPEWAS EMU records a season-high 11 blocks, Bryant denies five YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team ended its losing skid and earned its first Mid-American Conference win over Central Michigan University, 58-52, Tuesday evening, Jan. 15, at the Convocation Center. The Eagles (8-9; 1-2 MAC) avenged a pair of losses from last season against the Chippewas (8-8; 1-2 MAC). EMU’s defense posted a season-high eleven blocks and was anchored by forward Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich. – Oak Hill Academy) who denied a season-high five shots. Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day School) led the Eagles in scoring with 13 points and was one-of-three EMU players to hit double figures. As a team, EMU shot 16-of-32 (50 percent) from the floor and CMU went 19-of-59 (32.2 percent). The Eagles also shot a blistering 54.5 percent (6-of-11) from long range including a 5-of-6 showing in the opening 20 minutes. The Green and White struck first with a deep three pointer from Ross. The Eagles’ stingy defense held Central scoreless until 16:33 when Blake Hibbitts answered with a three of his own. The Chippewas went on a 6-0 run before Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich. – Detroit Country Day) slammed one down, followed by a J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind. – Snider) three pointer to recapture the lead to make it a 12-9 game. Ross and Bryant energized the Convocation Center with a fast break alleyoop to shift momentum and kick start a 12-4 run for the Eagles. At halftime the Eagles led the Chippewas, 30-19, shooting 11-of-19 (57.9 percent). Ross led with eight points and six from beyond the arc. The Eagles hit 5-of-6 (83.3 percent) three pointers in the first half. The Green and White’s zone defense appeared hard to crack for Central as the Chippewas shot just 7-of-20 (35 percent). Senior Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio – Euclid) set the tone for the Eagles, opening the second half with a block and a steal on the same defensive stop. It was the Chippewas who scored first in the second half though, with an Oliver Mbaigoto jumper. Both defenses pressed effectively as each team went scoreless for a five-minute stretch mid-half. Scoring picked up when Central’s scoring threat, Kyle Randall, got it going with a jumper in the paint and followed with a three-pointer to cut EMU’s lead to 11. With five minutes remaining EMU went on a 6-3 run to push the score to 49-36, giving them their largest lead of the night. Central then fouled on every possession in an attempt to chip away at EMU’s lead. The Eagles’ final 11 points were scored from the charity stripe.

EAGLES SNAP 16-GAME LOSING SKID TO REDHAWKS, 65-58 EMU wins ninth game at home, beats Miami for first time since 1997 YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) —The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team broke a 16-game losing streak against Miami University, defeating the RedHawks for the first time since 1997, 65-58, Saturday afternoon, Jan. 19, inside the Convocation Center. EMU’s second-straight conference win gets the team back to .500 (2-2) in Mid-American Conference play. The Eagles also improved to 9-9 on the season with a ninth-straight home victory while knocking off the RedHawks (7-9; 2-2 MAC) for the first time since an 82-77 decision Feb. 6, 1997, at EMU’s former basketball home, Bowen Field House. Derek Thompson (Detriot, Mich. – Melvindale) was one of three Eagles to score in double figures, leading his team with 16 points. Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich. – Oak Hill Academy) added 13 points and Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio – St. Vincent St. Mary) chipped in with 10. Freshman guard Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day) also turned in a solid performance, tallying eight points along with dishing out a career-high eight assists. EMU shot 51.2 percent, making 22-of-43 shots from the floor including 8-of-17 (47.1 percent) from beyond the arc. The Green and White dominated the boards, 34-24, and scored 17 second chance points. Will Felder led Miami in scoring and rebounding with a 12-point, nine-board performance. Like the Eagles, the RedHawks made 22 buckets, but attempted eight more, shooting 22-of-51 for a 43.1 fieldgoal percentage. Miami struggled from three-point range, launching 24 shots while only making six of them. With the loss, MU drops to 7-9 (2-2 MAC) on the season. Miami started off scoring the first four points of the game, but EMU responded with a 10-0 run that included back-to-back threes from Thompson and Harrison. A RedHawks’ three was answered by a Bryant dunk, and Eastern led, 12-7, at the 14:03 mark of the first half. The Eagles’ hot start continued as the Green and White hit consecutive threes, the latter coming as Thompson was fouled on the attempt. The senior guard converted the rare four-point play to increase the EMU lead to nine, 21-12, with 11:59 remaining. In the game’s first eight minutes, Eastern made 8-of-12 shots including 4-of-6 from long range. Miami made four shots from beyond the arc to try to stay within striking distance. However, the Eagles kept up their success from deep, making 7-of-11 threes to lead, 38-25, at the half. Coming into Saturday’s contest, Eastern led the MAC in three-point field goal percentage, making 42.4 percent of its attempts. Not only were seven first-half threes the most EMU has made in one half this season, but they were also the second most Eastern has made in an entire game all season. Thompson and Harrison led the Eagles with 10 points apiece in the opening half. Bryant scored eight first-half points, and J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind. – Snider) added a pair of threes for six points. While Ross did not score in the opening stanza, the freshman point guard dished out five assists. EMU went 15-of-26 in the first half to shoot 57.7 percent from the floor— the second consecutive game the Eagles made over 57 percent of its shots in the opening half. Miami shot 43.5 percent in the first 20 minutes, making 10-of-23 attempts. Bryant increased the Eagles’ lead coming out of the break with a thunderous slam from the baseline. However, the RedHawks scored six straight points to cut the EMU lead to single digits, 40-31, prompting EMU Head Coach Rob Murphy to call timeout with 16:48 remaining in the game. Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich. – Detroit Country Day) ended an 11-0 Miami run with an offensive put-back slam, but the RedHawks scored on their next possession to make it a four-point game. Eastern answered with a run of its own, scoring the game’s next seven points to make it 49-38 with 11:52 showing on the clock. Eastern maintained a comfortable lead throughout the next eight minutes, but the RedHawks made things interesting by trimming the lead down to five, 56-51, with just 3:07 left. Miami made it a 60-58 game with 1:35 left after a three from the corner. Following a RedHawk foul, Ross missed the front end of a one-and-one, giving Miami a chance to tie the game. However, a missed jumper was secured by EMU, and Ross was sent back to the line with 56.7 seconds remaining. This time, Ross converted both free throws to double the difference to four, 62-58. The EMU defense tightened up, holding Miami scoreless for the rest of the game, winning by a final score of 65-58.

EASTERN DROPS ROAD TILT AT WESTERN, 63-59 Despite leading by as many as 10, EMU fell at University Arena KALAMAZOO, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) —The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped its eighth straight road contest of the 2012-13 campaign Wednesday, Jan. 23, at University Arena. Despite not allowing Western Michigan University to convert a field goal in the final 2:42 of the game, the Eagles (9-10, 2-3 MAC) fell to the Broncos (11-7, 3-2 MAC), 63-59. Eastern had three student-athletes with double-digit point performances as Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent St. Mary (Wyoming)) led the offense with 15 points. Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy (Arkansas)) dropped 12 and Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio-Euclid) poured in 10 for the Eagles. Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.-Greensboro Day School) added nine points of his own. On the glass, Bryant, Harris and Harrison each had six caroms, while Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Country Day (Syracuse)) also pulled down six rebounds. As a team, EMU shot 23-of-58 (39.7 percent) from the floor and 6-of-16 (37.5 percent) from beyond the arc. Western hit 21-of-45 (46.7 percent) in field goal attempts, while knocking down 5-of-18 (27.8 percent) three point shots. After trading three-point baskets to open the contest, Ross gave EMU an early 6-3 lead with a deep ball of his own. The Broncos would return-fire, scoring the next three points, tying the game at six apiece. Eastern and Western traded a pair of buckets and saw an 8-8 tie with 14 minutes on the clock. It took nearly three minutes for Bryant to end that tie, knocking down a fade away jumper with just over 11 minutes left in the half. Out of the next media timeout the Eagles started to heat up, going on a 13-3 run, picking up a 21-11 lead with just over seven minutes remaining in the first half. Ross capped-off that run with another three-ball at with 7:10 left and the Eagles did not convert another field goal until the 1:57 mark, when they led 24-15. Western scored nine-straight in the final 1:30 of the opening frame to tie the game at 24 points apiece with 15 seconds on the clock, which is where the score remained heading into halftime. Ross posted eight first half points to lead EMU in the opening 20 minutes of play, while Harrison notched six. On the boards, Harris and Riley each pulled down four rebounds. As a team the Eagles were 9-of-21 (42.9 percent) from the floor and 4-of-9 (44.4 percent) from three-point land in the first half. The Eagles trailed, 26-24, for the first time in the game when Austin Richie knocked down a mid-range jumper to open the second half. The Broncos scored five more straight to give themselves a seven-point cushion, 31-24, with just over 18 minutes left in regulation. Bryan stopped the Western run, hitting a jump shot with 17:17 left on the clock, bringing EMU to within five, 31-26. After a flagrant-foul committed by WMU’s Darius Paul, Ross converted one-of-two from the charity stripe to make it, 31-27, with just over 16 minutes remaining. The back-and-forth offensive play continued over the next five minutes as Eastern trailed, 40-35, with less than 12 minutes to play in the rivalry matchup. Bryant made it a one-possession, 42-39, game after assisting Harris on an alley-oop dunk, then knocking down a pair of free throws. Harrison followed suit by cashing in a pair from the charity stripe to bring Eastern to within one, 42-41, at the 10:35 mark in the second half. The Eagles tied the game for the first time since the break at 45 points apiece when Harris converted a contested layup on a dish from Harrison. Harrison game Eastern its first lead since the opening half, 47-46, but it was short-lived as Western’s David Brown knocked down a threepointer to regain a 49-47 lead. Western extended its lead to 55-49 over the next two minutes as the Eagles looked to claw back with just 3:30 left in the contest. Despite bringing it to within four, Eastern was unable to mount the comeback necessary to top the Broncos and fell, 63-59.

EAGLES’ DEFENSE LEADS THE WAY IN 42-25 WIN OVER NIU EMU defense surrenders just four first-half points

YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) — The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team turned in a record-breaking defensive performance, defeating the Northern Illinois Huskies, 42-25, Saturday afternoon, Jan. 26, in the Convocation Center. For the Eagles (10-10; 3-3 MAC), the game stood as the first time since Dec. 7, 2004 that the team held an opponent to less than 30 points. That feat occurred against Rochester College, 8929. The 25 points given up were also the lowest points EMU has allowed since Jan. 21, 1943, when Eastern defeated Hillsdale College, 61-21. It was a dubious day for the Huskies (4-14; 2-4 MAC), who registered just one field goal and a pair of free throws in the opening half for a total of four points. That four-point output broke their own record-low of five first-half points from Dec. 1, 2012. It also tied the 2008 Savannah State Tigers for the fewest points scored in any half during the modern era. The one NIU basket also tied the NCAA record with Savannah State for fewest field goals made in one half. NIU shot 1-of-31 in the first half for a 3.2 percent conversion rate. That mark broke the record previously held by Savannah State, who went 1-of-23 en route to their four-point second half, Jan. 7, 2008. The Huskies started 1-of-2, but went on to miss their next 36 shots over 24:33 of play before making a basket with 14:27 remaining in the game. Deveon Balls scored seven of the Huskies’ 25 points to lead his team. The Eagles forced NIU to shoot 8-of-61 from the field including 1-of-33 from beyond the arc for a 13.1 shooting percentage making it the lowest field goal percentage in NCAA history since the beginning of the shot clock era in 1986. The previous record occurred, Dec. 29, 2001, when Miami University shot 13.3 percent from the floor, making 8-of-60 shots against Dayton. The Eagles were led in scoring by redshirt junior Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy) with 10 points, the only player in double digits for either team. EMU shot 13-of-35 from the field for a 37.1 shooting percentage. At the charity stripe, the Eagles converted 75.0 percent of its attempts, going 12-16. Eastern Michigan started the game hitting three of its first five shots compared to a 1-of-10 effort for NIU. Da’Shote Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Detroit Country Day) was a major contributor to NIU’s early offensive struggles, denying three of the Huskies’ opening 10 shots. A Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day) trey at the 14:24 mark gave the Eagles an early 8-2 advantage. The blocks and defensive stops kept coming for the Green and White as Bryant turned away NIU shots on consecutive possessions. At the other end of the court, Bryant was fouled on a dunk attempt and filled the resulting free throws to make it a 12-2 score with 10:45 to play. After scoring the game’s first basket one minute in, the Huskies did not strike again until a Mike Davis free throw fell through at 8:47. The scoreless drought spanned 10:13 and snapped a 12-0 EMU run. Eastern Michigan’s defense smothered NIU to the tune of 30 consecutive missed shots overall and 0-of-17 from behind the arc. The Huskies went into the locker room 1-of-31 (3.2 percent) from the field. The Eagles’ 18-4 lead at the half marked the fewest combined points in a half since North Carolina Central (13) and Savannah State (5) combined for 18 in the first half a game on Jan. 20, 2010. EMU needed little help from its offense in the first half but got just enough when called upon. Anthony Strickland (Ypsilanti, Mich. – D.H. Robichaud) and Bryant each chimed in with slams during the final five minutes to increase the lead to 14, 18-4. The Eagles completed 20 minutes of play shooting 6-of-13 (46.2 percent) from the floor, 1-of-5 (20 percent) from long distance and 5-of-7 (71.4 percent) from the charity stripe. Riley gave the Huskies a rude awakening on their first shot of the second half when he denied Abdel Nader for his fifth block of the afternoon. Bryant then cashed in on his first shot of the second stanza and put EMU further ahead, 20-4. Keith Gray ended NIU’s streak of 24:32 without a made field goal when he made a move under the basket and underhanded a layup in with 14:27 remaining in the game. EMU still held a 23-7 lead at that point. With NIU enjoying a mini 6-2 run, J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) answered with a threepointer from the left corner. A midrange jumper by senior Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich.-Warren Cousino) at 7:06 expanded the Green and White’s margin to 17, 30-13. A defensive-minded Eagles’ squad lived up to its reputation over the final seven minutes of play, limiting the Huskies to mostly outside shots. Balls registered NIU’s first long ball of the game on the team’s 33rd attempt with 2:05 to go. 2013-2014 EASTERN MICHIGAN

EAGLES DOWNED BY ROCKETS, 60-52 Daylen Harrison records career-high 19 points in the road loss TOLEDO, Ohio (EMUEagles.com) — Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio – St. Vincent St. Mary) recorded a double-double, registering a career-high 19 points along with ten rebounds, but it wasn’t enough as the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team fell on the road to the University of Toledo, 60-52, at John F. Savage Arena, Feb. 9. Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich. – Oak Hill Academy) scored 9 to follow Harrison. Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich. – Detroit Country Day) added six points and four blocks to go along with 13 rebounds, tying his career-high. The Eagles (11-12, 4-5 MAC) could only muster 33.9 percent from the floor, making 20-of-59 attempts including 4-of-17 from beyond the arc. EMU outrebounded Toledo 43-36 while also converting 19 second chance points. However, 19 EMU turnovers turned into 19 points for the Rockets. Rian Pearson tallied a double-double to lead Toledo (11-10, 7-3 MAC), scoring 29 points and grabbed 14 boards, going 13-of-19 from the foul line, making his final 10 free throw attempts. As a team, the Rockets went to the line 31 times, sinking 20 of their attempts while EMU made 8-of-11 from the stripe. UT shot 18-of-52 from the field for a 34.6 shooting percentage while registering the same mark of 4-of-17 from three point land. The Rockets started off the game with a pair of threes from Dominique Buckley to take an early 6-0 lead. A Riley offensive put-back got Eastern on the board, but the Eagles started out 1-of-8 from the floor and found themselves trailing 8-3 at the first media timeout. However, the Eagles would hit three of their next five shots as a Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich. – Melvindale) 3-pointer tied the game at 11 with 10:58 to go in the first half. The Green and White would take its first lead of the game after Bryant took a steal to the rim for a one-handed slam. Nonetheless, the Eagles’ 7-0 run ended following a pair of free throws from Toledo’s Matt Smith. Making 3-of-4 from the charity stripe, Eastern would take a 16-13 lead. A nearly five-minute scoring drought would haunt the Eastern as the Rockets scored the next six points to take a three-point lead of their own. Harrison finally stopped it with a jumper, and Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio – Euclid) added a basket to regain the lead for the Eagles, 20-19, at the 4:09 mark of the first half. Toledo would later regain the lead, taking a 24-22 lead into the break. Both teams struggled shooting-wise in the first half, making only eight buckets. While Eastern shot 27.6 percent from the floor (8-of-29), UT made one-third of its shots, going 8-of-24 from the field. The Eagles controlled the boards, 23-16, but the Rockets were able to convert eight points off of eight turnovers. Thompson led the way with six points for the Eagles in the first half while Harrison put together a very statistical first half. The junior from Akron, Ohio recorded five points, six rebounds, two steals, one block and one assist. Riley also added four points and seven first half boards for the Green and White. For the hometown Rockets, Pearson recorded nine points and seven caroms off the bench in the first half. Toledo struggled from the charity stripe making only 6-of-12 attempts. Bryant would knot the game up at 24 with the first bucket of the second half, but Toledo would answer to grab the lead as Pearson scored six of his team’s first eight points of the second half, giving the Rockets a 32-26 lead. Harrison would answer with old-fashioned three-point play to make it 32-29 with 15:58 left in the contest. Eastern would get into foul trouble with nine team fouls at the 8:58 mark of the second half, and Toledo would make free throws to increase its lead to six. A Bryant jumper would cut the lead to four, 41-37, with 8:11 to go. After nearly three minutes of no scoring, Toledo would tally four straight points, doubling its lead to eight. However, the Eagles would not go away as backto-back threes by Harrison and Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day) made it 45-43 with 3:59 left. Ross would add another jumper in between a pair of Buckley threes, and EMU would find itself trailing, 51-45, with just 1:45 remaining in the game. Toledo would not let the Eagles get within five for the rest of the game as Pearson made six free throws to put it away, 60-52

EMU RALLIED FOR FIRST ROAD WIN AT BALL STATE EMU makes is 5-6 against the MAC MUNCIE, Ind. (EMUEagles.com) – A 20-point performance by Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.Oak Hill Academy (Arkansas)) propelled the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team to a 56-50 victory on the road Saturday, Feb. 16, over Ball State University. It was the first win away from the Convocation Center for the Green and White this season. The Eagles (12-13, 5-6 MAC) were led by Bryant who posted a career-high 20 points, along with four rebounds, while J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) notched a career-best 18 points. Bryant shot 8-of-14 (57.1 percent) from the floor, while Sims hit 7-of-8 (87.5 percent) including 4-of-5 (80 percent) from beyond the arc. Austin Harper (Grand Haven, Mich.-Grand Haven (Glen Oaks C.C.)) chipped in six points. On the glass Anthony Strickland (Ypsilanti, Mich.-D.H. Roubichard (Adrian)) posted a team-high five rebounds. As a team, EMU shot 22-of-39 (56.4 percent) from the floor, while hitting 5-of-11 (45.5 percent) from three-point land. Ball State opened the scoring when Chris Bond dropped in a bucket underneath the basket. Eastern’s only response in the first four minutes of play was the backend of a pair from the charity stripe by Strickland. The Cardinals were sparked by four EMU turnovers in the first five minutes of play and went on a 7-0 run to make it 9-1 in their favor with 15 minutes left on the clock in the opening half. A fast break bucket by Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich.-Cousino) put an end to the BSU run, bringing Eastern within seven, 9-3. The Eagles and Cardinals traded buckets back and forth through the next few minutes bringing the game to its next break with EMU trailing, 14-5. Indiana native, Sims knocked down a three-ball out of the media timeout to bring the Eagles to within six, 14-8, with just over 11 minutes left on the clock. Sims followed up with the next bucket after picking Scaife’s pocket and finishing a layup on the fast break, making it 14-10 with 9:45 left in the half. Chase Brogna finished the Eagles miniature 5-0 run with a triple, but Strickland return-fired with a jumper of his own, making it 17-12 in favor of Ball State. The Eagles were the first to strike out of the break with Sims knocking down another threeball to bring EMU within two, 17-15, at the 5:41 mark. Scaife converted on both free-throws of a one-and-one to extend the Ball State lead to 19-15 with 4:27 on the clock. Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.-Greensboro Day School) hit a floater, making it a two-point, 19-17, game with just under four minutes to play, then Bryant filled up a jumper from the elbow to tie the game for the first time since the opening tip. After Matt Kamienicki converted on a tip-in, Sims gave EMU its first lead of the ball game, 22-21, after he hit his third triple of the half. Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio-Euclid) stuffed home an open dunk with 1:25 left on the clock, giving Eastern a three-point, 24-21, lead. However, Brogna answered at the other end connecting on a three-pointer with 56 seconds left on the clock to knot things up at 24 apiece, which is where the score stayed heading into the half. Bryant opened up the second half scoring four-straight giving EMU a four-point, 28-24, lead. After Sciafe knocked down the back-end of a pair of free ones, Eastern dropped four straight as Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent St. Mary (Wyoming)) knocked down a runner and Bryant hit a fast break layup to make it a seven-point, 32-25, lead with 14:08 left in regulation. Scaife hit the second of a pair from the charity stripe to end EMU’s quick 4-0 run. Marcus Posley hit both of his free-throws out of the second media timeout of the second half to bring the Cardinals to within four, 32-28, with 11:30 on the clock. Majok Majok followed Posely with a pair of free ones to make it 32-30 at the 10:37 mark. Sims responded with his first bucket of the second half, and his fourth three-pointer of the game with 9:43 on the clock to end EMU’s almost five minute scoring drought and put the Eagles back up five, 35-30. Bryant followed with a runner to put EMU up seven. After trading buckets, the Eagles took a 13 point lead, 50-37, with 2:48 left when Sims converted on a layup. Scaife filled up a pair of free throws and a three-ball in straight trips making it a 50-42 tally with 2:19 left. Bond followed with a layup after getting a pass on a backdoor cut the Eagles lead to six, 50-44. After Bryant knocked down the first of a one-and-one, Majok knocked down both free-throws to make it 51-46 in favor of Eastern. Scaife then made it a three-point game, 51-48, on the next trip with a jumper, but a pair of back-to-back buckets for iced the game for EMU, 56-50.

could not end the nation’s current longest winning streak, as the Eagles fell to the University of Akron, 70-62, Wednesday night, Feb. 13, at the Convocation Center. Akron (20-4, 11-0 MAC) remained unbeaten in Mid-American Conference play and extended its win streak to 16 games. With the loss, EMU drops to 11-13 and 4-6 in the MAC. Three Eagles eclipsed double digits in scoring as Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich. – Oak Hill Academy) led the way with 11, while J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind. – Snider) and Anthony Strickland (Ypsilanti, Mich. – D.H. Robichaud) each tallied 10 points off of the bench. Eastern’s bench outscored the Akron bench, 27-11, but the Green and White only shot 19-of-51 from the field for a 37.3 shooting percentage. The Zips made over half of their shots, going 25-of-47 for a 53.2 percent clip, including 9-of-23 from three point land. The Zips ended the contest with four starters in double figures as Brian Walsh led this team with 16 points. Nick Harney added 14 and Zeke Marshall scored a dozen points all coming in the second half. Forward Demetrius Treadwell added 11 on 5-of-7 shooting. Both teams made many trips to the charity stripe with Eastern going 18-of-23 from the line, including a perfect 8-of-8 from Stickland, while Akron made 11-of-17 attempts. The Eagles were able to convert 20 Akron turnovers into 21 points. The Zips controlled the boards on the night, 34-26. The Eagles got on the board first with a Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day) layup. However, Akron responded on the next possession with a three-pointer from Alex Abreu. Two easy buckets down low by the Zips on their next two trips down the floor forced EMU Head Coach Rob Murphy to take a timeout with his team trailing,7-2, three minutes into the game. A Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio – St. Vincent St. Mary) free throw ended the 9-0 Akron run. After missing the second attempt, Harrison got a chance for redemption and knocked down a jumper from beyond the arc to make it 9-6 in favor of UA with 14:25 remaining in the opening half. Through the first 10 minutes of the first half, both teams attempted 13 shots each, with EMU making three and Akron sinking seven. Three of Akron’s seven made-baskets came from three-point land as the Zips held a 17-11 advantage. A pair of conversions from the charity stripe along with a layup, all from Strickland cut the lead to two. Following an Akron layup, Bryant nailed a three, cutting the deficit to one, 19-18, with 7:31 to go in the first half. With EMU trailing by six, Bryant turned defense into offense with a block on an Akron fastbreak before Strickland found him on the other end for a layup and the foul. The Detroit, Mich. native completed the old-fashioned three-point play to cut the difference in half, 28-25, with 2:36 left until halftime. The teams would make one-of-two from the line, giving the Zips a 29-26 lead at the break. The Eagles only mustered 7-of-23 shooting from the floor in the first half for a 30.4 field goal percentage. In contrast, the Zips made half of their shots, going 12-24 including 4-of-9 from long range. The Green and White made up its poor shooting with success from the foul line, draining 9-of-11 from the stripe as Akron only went to the line twice, making one. Another big reason for the Eagles only trailing by three at the half was due to its strong defensive effort on Akron’s 7-footer Marshall. Leading the Zips in scoring averaging 12.5 points per game, Marshall was held to a scoreless first half by the stingy EMU 2-3 zone. Harrison tied the game up with a three to start the game’s final 20 minutes, but Akron answered with a three of its own to bring the margin back to three. Marshall finally scored his first points of the game with a baby hook shot from the block. After a Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich. – Detroit Country Day) dunk, Marshall made one-of-two free throws along with a Harney jumper to give Akron a 37-31 lead. Following two more free throws from the Zips, Eastern made a run, scoring eight straight points to tie the game up at 39 with 10:14 left. With the game tied at 45 apiece, UA produced a 7-0 of its own. Ross responded with a three to cut the margin to four, 52-48, with 4:55 left as Coach Murphy asked for a timeout. Forcing an Akron turnover out of the timeout, Eastern sped down the court, finding Strickland who couldn’t convert a layup due to a foul. The Ypsilanti, Mich. native sank both free throws to make it a two point game. Nonetheless, the Zips hit back-to-back threes to increase their lead to eight, 58-50, at the 3:24 mark in the second half. 2013-2014 EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY MEN’S BASKETBALL

On the next possession, NIU’s Darrell Bowie and EMU’s Bryant were issued with double technical fouls following a heated verbal exchange along with some pushing and shoving. Retaining possession, the Huskies were able to knock down a pair of free throws to cut the EMU lead to one, 3-2. With the game tied, 5-5, the EMU 2-3 zone tightened up, and the Eagles went an 8-0 run. The run included a free throw after the game’s third technical was called on Kevin Gray, his third personal foul of the half. J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind. – Snider) found Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich. – Warren Cousino) on a successful pick and roll, forcing a NIU timeout with the Green and White on top, 13-5, with 11:57 remaining in the first half. NIU would score four more points to cut the lead to one. However, Bryant would make sure his team would not surrender the lead as he added an offensive put-back as well as a thunderous dunk after a crisp pass courtesy of Sims. Thompson increased the lead with the next eight points for EMU, and Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day)added a deuce to send the lead into double digits, 30-19 with 2:37 remaining in the first half. NIU would hold Eastern scoreless for the remainder of the half while scoring three points of its own, as the Eagles took a 30-22 advantage into the locker room. Thompson led the way for EMU with 11 points in the first half, including 3-of-5 shooting from beyond the arc. Bryant added seven points along with three rebounds, one block and one steal. The Eagles shot 36.7 percent from the floor, draining 11-of-30 shots. The EMU defense forced eight turnovers in the first half, converting them into 13 points. The Green and White held the rebounding advantage, 18-15, with the help of 10 offensive boards that assisted to 10 first half points in the paint. Christian and Nader paced the Huskies with six points apiece in the opening 20 minutes. Nader also corralled six rebounds to lead his team. NIU made one-third of its shots in the first half, going 6-of-18 for a 33.3 percent clip. The Cardinal and Black also converted 7-of-10 attempts from the charity stripe. With the Eagles using stifling defense that caused them to miss their first seven shots, the Huskies finally recorded its first basket of the second half at the 14:58 mark. The bucket would not phase EMU as Rob Murphy’s ballclub went on a 7-0 run to take a 17-point cushion, 43-26, with 11:05 remaining in the contest. Bowie would score seven straight points for his team to cut Eastern’s lead to 10, 45-35, with 7:44 showing on the clock. Once again, the Eagles countered five straight points along with preventing buckets on the defensive end. With 4:40 left in the game, EMU found itself on top, 50-35.

Improve to 7-7 in MAC play team took to the hardwood of the Convocation Center Saturday, March 2, where they needed overtime to beat the Western Michigan University Broncos, 50-49, in the 2013 Hall of Fame Game. After 45 minutes of play, it took a defensive stand to seal the victory for the Green and White (14-15, 7-7 MAC). The Green and White won the jump ball and scored the first basket of the extra period, but did itself no favors putting Western (18-10, 9-5 MAC) on the line in both of the Broncos’ first two possessions of overtime. WMU converted each of its three attempts from the charity strip to gain a one point lead, 47-46. With less than thirty second on the clock, the Broncos fouled J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind. – Snider) who knocked back both of his free-throws. WMU answered with a Nate Hutcheson layup to cut EMU’s lead to 50-49. Bryant led all scorers with 15 points and had an equally impressive day on the defensive side of the ball, tallying two steals and two timely blocks. Junior Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio –St. Vincent St. Mary) concocted a terrific stat line with 13 points and six rebounds. Guards Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich. – Melvindale) and Sims handed out three assists each. The Eagles shot 21-of-53 (39.6 percent) from the field, but possibly more importantly shot 3-of-5 (60.0 percent) in overtime. The Broncos shot 18-of-43 (41.9 percent) and were led by Shayne Whittington with 11 point and 11 rebounds. Bryant put EMU on the scoreboard first with a mid range jumper facilitated by a crafty pass from Thompson. The Eagles sent an early message defensively, blocking Western’s first shot attempt and forcing a shot clock violation during the Broncos’ second possession. With 6:33 remaining in the opening stanza, Paul hit a jumper from just inside the arc to give Western its first lead of the game, 15-14. Thompson responded quickly, getting a step on his man and making a runner in the lane to recapture the lead for the home team. At the four minute mark, Harrison started to work up a lather, first making a turnaround from the low post, then nailing a fast break three to push the Eagles lead back up to six. Riley put on a defensive clinic in the closing minutes of the first half, single-handedly stifling four consecutive Bronco scoring attempts, including a crowd energizing steal where he simply ripped the ball out of a WMU player’s hands. The Eagles shot 10-of-29 (34.5 percent) compared to 8-of-19 (42.1 percent) by the Broncos in the first half. Harrison led all first half scores with seven. Brandon Pokley led the Broncos with five. The rebound battle was close with the Eagles barley edging the Broncos, 17-14. EMU tallied seven steals leading to 13 points off turnovers. Pokley opened the scoring in the second half making a deep three on the Broncos’ first possession. WMU’s Austin Richie then chipped in a triple to tie the game, 24-24, at the 17:00 minute mark. With 6:16 remaining in the second half, a Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C. – Greensboro Day) steal started a fast break which ended with a Bryant layup to bring the Eagles back to within one of the lead. After a forced throw-away, Bryant made a mid-ranger to reclaim the lead for the Eagles. David Brown converted a triple from the corner to put the Broncos up, 42-39, with only three minutes remaining, but Thompson immediately tied things back up with a three of his own, bringing the crowd at the Convo to its feet. With less than one minute on the clock, Riley produced a block to give the Eagles an opportunity to put the game away, however they were unable to score on their last possession, and the game went into overtime.

EMU ON THE WRONG SIDE OF A 61-59 HEARTBREAKER Eagles had three players with double-digit scoring performances MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) - The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team dropped its final road contest of the 2012-13 campaign. Eastern was led offensively by Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale (SEMO)) with 14 points, while Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy (Arkansas)) had 13 and Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent St. Mary (Wyoming)) posted 12. Bryant led EMU on the glass, pulling down seven rebounds while Harrison and Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Country Day (Syracuse)) each had five caroms. As a team, Eastern shot 25-of-54 (46.3 percent) from the floor, while hitting 6-of-16 (37.5 percent) from beyond the arc. EMU also out-rebounded the Chippewas, 36-24, in the loss. Kyle Randall exploded for Central with a game-high 23 points, while Oliver Mbaigato notched 14 and Blake Hibbits contributed 13. Randall was 8-of-17 (47.1 percent) from the floor, including a blistering 6-of11 (54.5 percent) from three-point land. Hibbits knocked down three triples for CMU. Central shot 20-of-47 (42.6 percent) from the floor while hitting 9-of-24 (37.5 percent) from long range. The Chippewas opened the scoring with a three-ball from Randall, but Bryant responded with a putback dunk to make it a 3-2 game. Central came back to score five-straight points, extending its lead to 8-2 with 17:29 left in the half which sparked EMU Head Coach Rob Murphy to call the first timeout of the contest. Out of the timeout Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio-Euclid) knocked down a short-range jumper to cut the Chips lead to four, 8-4. After forcing a CMU turnover, Bryant filled up the bucket from 18-feet out to make it a two point game. Central scored four in a row to take a six point lead after Mbaigato drained a jumper from the elbow. Thompson stopped the Central run with a triple, followed by a put-back layup from Riley, bringing Eastern to within one, 12-11. Central knocked down a three and held Eastern scoreless for over five minutes when finally, Riley hit the backend of a pair from the free throw line to make it 15-12, in favor of the Chippewas. CMU outscored the Eagles 13-7 in the next five minutes to take muster a nine point, 28-19, lead with just under three minutes left in the first half. Out of the final media timeout in the half Thompson converted on a three-ball to bring EMU to within six, 28-22, with two minutes to play in the first, but the Chippewas return-fired with five in a row, making it 33-22. Harris slammed one home on the Eagles’ ensuing possession to make it 3324 with a minute left, which is where the game stayed heading into the break. Bryant scored the opening bucket from the elbow to begin the second half for Eastern. J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) drove the lane and converted on a layup then hit a mid-range jumper to bring the Eagles within three, 33-30, as the Green and White scored the first six in the second half. Central finally got on the board when Randall converted on an old-fashioned three-point play by taking a foul on a layup and converting the free throw that followed to make it 36-30 in favor of Central. Randall knocked down his fifth three-ball of the game to take a 39-30 lead, but the Eagles scored the next nine-straight to tie the game with just over 12 minutes to go. Harrison gave the Eagles their first lead, 41-40, when he knocked down a jumper in transition with 11:53 on the clock. The lead did not last long as Mbaigato converted a three-point play on the next possession to put the Chips back on top 43-41. The Eagles and Chips traded buckets through the next few minutes until Thompson tied it up at 49 with a running jumper with under seven minute left in play. The Chips scored the next five points, but Thompson hit his fourth three-pointer of the game to bring EMU with two, 54-52, with nearly six minutes to play. After Finis Craddock knocked down a pair of free throws to give CMU a 57-54 lead at the 3:34 mark, both squads traded field goals before Bryant took flight, flushing home a dunk after leaping from just inside the charity stripe to tie the game at 59 points apiece. Mbaigto hit a jumper to give CMU a lead with just over a minute to go and the score remained 61-59 until Coach Murphy called a timeout with 14.1 seconds left to go. In the final possession for Eastern, the Eagles were plagued by a costly turnover which left the Eagles on the wrong side of the final, 61-59. The Cardinals’ Koch would hit another three to cut the deficit to seven, 54-47, with 1:43 left and once again, the Eagles answered with free throws to boost their lead to 11, 58-47, with 54 seconds left and went on to post the 11-point win, 61-50, to sweep the two-game series with the Cardinals this season. The Eagles will now go on the road for their final two regular-season games of the year. Eastern is slated to play at Western Michigan Wednesday, Feb. 29, and then close out with a Saturday, March 3, afternoon tilt at Toledo.

MEN’S HOOPS SUFFER SETBACK TO UT IN REGULAR SEASON FINALE Derek Thompson throws down 25 in losing effort

YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team fell short in its final regular season game to the visiting University of Toledo. Saturday’s contest was EMU’s Senior Day Celebration. Before the game, seniors Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale (SEMO)), Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich.-Cousino), and Jamell Harris (Euclid, Ohio-Euclid) were honored for their dedication and leadership. The Eagles were outpaced in the second half, only scoring 32 points compared to 47 second half points by the Rockets. The Eagles’ second half shooting woes erased their first half lead. EMU shot 22-of-53 (41.5 percent) whereas UT shot 27-of-53 (50.9 percent). Thompson led all scorers with a season-high 25 points including the Eagles’ final four buckets. Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy (Arkansas)) chipped in 15 points and eight rebounds. J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) tallied 13 for the Green and White. Toledo’s Dominique Buckley led the visitors in scoring with 21 points. Four Rockets scored in double digits. Seniors led the opening charge for the Eagles. Harris was first on the scoreboard, scoring from the top of the lane. Thompson then finished at the hoop during the Eagles’ second possession. Rian Pearson scored the Rockets’ first points putting in a fast-break layup. Five minutes into the first half, the Green and White went on a 12-0 run, five of those point contributed by Bryant. Coach Rob Murphy’s zone was able to hold the Rockets scoreless for a three and-a-half minute stretch until Pearson ended the drought at the 12:09 mark. The Eagles built an 18-8 lead. Midway through the first, the Eagles committed three consecutive turnovers and opened the door for Toledo to chip away at their lead. The Rockets were on a 6-0 before Thompson hit a step back three to regain some of EMU’s momentum. EMU led 26-20 after Thompson made a jumper from the wing at the five-minute mark. Thompson and Bryant each scored 10 of EMU’s first 26 points. Another 6-0 run by Toledo, capped off by a triple from Dominique Buckley, tied the game for the first time since the opening jump, with four minutes reaming in the first half. With under three to play in the opening half, Sims got involved in a big way, scoring his first points of the contest and then on the next Rocket possession, stealing the ball to set up his own transition three pointer. The Eagles led, 35-31, at the break. Both teams shot well in the first half. EMU hit on 12-of-23 (52.2 percent) from the field and UT made 12-of-25 (48.0 percent). The Green and White was perfect form the strip in the opening half, making all seven of its attempts. Eastern got a boost from the bench as the home reserves outscored UT’s bench, 16-3, in the first 20 minutes. Thompson picked up the second half just how he left off in the first, scoring a smooth jumper on his initial touch. A three from Buckley marked the first score for the Rockets in the second stanza. At the 17:17 mark, Buckley converted another three-point attempt to give UT its first lead of the game, 40-39. After Harris tied things up with a free-throw, Buckley put the Rockets back in front with his third triple of the half. UT went on 12-1 run over a three minute stretch to give the visitors their largest lead to that point, 52-41. The Eagles went nearly 10 minutes between field goals. Thompson ended the drought scoring a three from way out to put the score at 58-44 with 9:55 remaining. Back-to-back treys from Sims cut the Rockets’ lead to 12. However, Buckley continued to have a hot hand for the visitors, scoring back-to-back three pointers of his own. With 2:32 remaining in the contest, the Eagles were down 14 points, 76-62, and began to foul on each of the Rockets’ possessions to see if they could climb back into the game. Despite some late game heroics from Thompson, the home team was not able to overcome the deficit.

EAGLES SLIP BY NIU, ADVANCE IN MAC TOURNAMENT Jalen Ross hit game-winning three with 32 seconds YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team avenged a 2012 Mid-American Conference Tournament first round exit at the hands of Northern Illinois University, beating the Huskies for the third time this season. Freshman Jalen Ross (Greensboro, N.C.-Greensboro Day School) nailed a three from the wing with 32 seconds left as the Eagles emerged from what turned into a nail-biter, winning by a score of 45-44. The Eagles’ big man Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Detroit Country Day), had himself a big day, scoring a career-high 13 points, getting 11 rebounds, and blocking four shots; leading all players in those statistical categories. All-MAC Honorable Mention Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy (Arkansas)) also had an impressive outing with 10 points and eight rebounds. Northern’s J.J. Cravatta and Aksel Bolin each scored a team-leading nine points. EMU (15-17) shot 17-of-38 (44.7 percent) and made 7-of-13 (53.8 percent) of its free-throws. NIU (5-25) converted 14-of-45 (31.1 percent) of its field goals and went 7-of-18 (38.9 percent) from the line. Eastern won the battle of the boards, outrebounding the Huskies 33-28. Eastern opened play of the defensive side of the ball. Junior center and Detroit native Riley set the tone bodying a Husky out-of-bounds to earn a possession for the Eagles. Bryant put EMU on the score sheet, nailing a long range two pointer from just inside the top of the arc. NIU’s Antone Christian answered with a three from the wing, scoring the first points for the visiting team. Riley owned the paint in the opening minutes, tallying two blocks in the Huskies’ first three possessions. Four minutes in, sharp-shooters Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich.-Melvindale (SEMO)) and J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.-Snider) got involved making back-to-back threes to give the Green and White an early 10-3 lead. Sam Mader’s turn-around floater gave the Huskies more points within eight minutes of play than they scored in the entire first half during their Jan. 26 visit to the Convo. The Huskies had pulled within three points until Sims came off a screen and hit an open jumper to give the Eagles a little separation, 15-10, with eight minutes remaining in the opening half. Thompson showcased his ability to create his own shot, penetrating and then making the stepback to earn the Eagles two more points. Three consecutive Northern Illinois triples tied the score at 21-21 with just over three minutes remaining in the first half, but Coach Rob Murphy’s squad responded. Another three from Thompson, a Riley hook shot and put-back, and a timely strip by Ross gave the home team a seven point lead heading into the break. The second half started sloppily for the Eagles, with a turnover in their first possession and backto-back shooting fouls. Luckily, the Huskies were unable to convert on any their four attempts from the charity stripe. The first point of the half wasn’t scored until the home team again fouled, putting NIU’s Mike Davis on the line, who made one of his two free throws at the 17:33 mark. Bryant scored the Eagles’ first points of the second half on a line drive jumper during the Eagles’ next possession. Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio-St. Vincent-St. Mary) got into the act five minutes into the second half, dipping under a Cardinal and Black defender , filling the cylinder to score his first points of the game. Harrison’s score followed by two converted Riley free throws put the Eagles up, 34-23, their largest lead of the game thus far. Midway through the second half, the Huskies had cut into the Eagles’ lead with back-to-back threes to bring the score to 36-29. Riley tipped in a teammate’s miss, and Bryant hit one of his signature mid-range rise-up jumpers to once again extend the Green and White’s lead to 11. Northern Illinois kept itself in the game by making three pointers along with some Eastern assistance. With just over five minute remaining, the Eagles gave up back-to-back turnovers, and continued to put NIU on the line committing 10 second half fouls. With under three remaining in the win-or-go-home contest, NIU’s Bolin scored an old-fashioned three-point play to make it a one point game, 42-41. Travon Baker followed that with a three pointer to give the Huskies their first lead of the evening, 44-42. After a wild scrum for a loose ball, Sims recovered possession and found Ross while sliding across the floor. Ross converted a gutsy three to recapture the lead for the Eagles. With two seconds remaining, Bryant produced an unconventional block, but NIU kept possession. After a timeout by the Huskies, a corner three bounced off the back of the iron to seal the victory for Eastern.

EAGLES SOAR PAST REDHAWKS AND INTO MAC QUARTERS EMU hoops advances to battle Western Michigan

CLEVELAND, Ohio (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team won its second round matchup of the 2013 FirstEnergy Mid-American Men’s Basketball Tournament Wednesday, March 13, in a hard fought defensive battle with Miami University, 58-47. It was the Eagles (16-17) first win in Cleveland since the 2007-08 campaign when EMU defeated Ball State University, 59-55, March 12, 2008. It was also the first time EMU has won two tournament games in a row since 1997-98 campaign when then-Head Coach Milton Barnes led the Eagles to their most recent MAC Tournament Championship. Derek Thompson (Detroit, Mich. – Melvindale (Southeast Missouri State)) led the Eagles into the MAC quarterfinals with 14 points to go along with five assists and four rebounds. Thompson was one-of-four players in double figures as Daylen Harrison (Akron, Ohio – St. Vincent St. Mary) tallied 11 points and five boards while Glenn Bryant (Detroit, Mich.-Oak Hill Academy (Arkansas)) added 10 points, all coming in the second half. Coming off of his first career double-double, EMU junior center Da’Shonte Riley (Detroit, Mich.-Country Day (Syracuse)) padded the stat book, recording 10 points, grabbing nine boards, stealing four balls and blocking three shots. Eastern shot 43.2 percent (19-of-44) from the floor, including 4-of-11 from beyond the arc. The Green and White went to the charity stripe 23 times on the evening, converting 16 attempts. The Eagles found success in the paint, scoring 24 points compared to only 10 for Miami. EMU’s zone defense forced 20 turnovers into 19 points. The stingy defense prevented MU to shooting just 14-of-40 from the floor for a 35.0 percent clip. The RedHawks made half of its shot from beyond the arc, nailing 7-of-20 from long range. Miami was led in scoring by Will Felder and Jon Harris as both tallied 14 points. The Eagles opened the scoring with a jumper from the elbow by J.R. Sims (Fort Wayne, Ind.Snider), but the RedHawks answered with five-straight points to jump out to an early 5-2 lead. After trading three-pointers with the RedHawks, the Eagles saw an 8-5 deficit with just under five minutes to play in the opening half. The Green and White held Miami scoreless for almost five minutes as they converted on a layup at the 10:53 mark to make it 10-5 in favor of the RedHawks. It was the first Miami points since there was 15:42 on the clock. Thompson answered with a runner to give the Eagles their first field goal since the 16:33 mark at 10:15. Eastern then scored five-straight to take its first lead, 12-10 of the contest. The Eagles built on their lead out of the next time out with another bucket from Sims, extending to a four-point margin, 14-10. Miami finally converted on its first field goal in over five minutes at the 6:46 mark to cut the EMU lead to two, but Matt Balkema (Roseville, Mich.-Cousino) converted on the other end to re-take a four-point margin, 16-12. EMU and Miami traded points throughout the remaining seven minutes of play, until the RedHawks scored five-straight to tie the game at 22 points apiece with 1:37 left in the opening half. Harrison knocked down a three-pointer, but Harris responded with a triple of his own to keep it tied at 25. Thompson hit one from downtown with just four seconds on the clock to give EMU a 28-25 edge heading into the locker room at half. The Eagles converted on their first two attempts in the second half to score four-straight and jump out to a seven-point, 32-25, lead with 18:25 on the clock. Bryant put the back-end of a pair of free throw in to extend the EMU lead to eight. It was his first point of the game with 17:43 to go. Miami responded with four straight to bring the EMU lead to four, but Bryant responded with an old-fashioned three-point play after getting hacked and hitting a jumper and the free throw that followed, putting EMU back up seven, 36-29. Bryant sparked a 7-0 run to give the Eagles their first double-digit lead of the game, 40-29, with 13:43 left in the contest. Eastern held the RedHawks scoreless for over seven minutes until Reggie Johnson knocked down the first of two free throws to make it a 10-point, 40-30, tally in the Eagles favor. EMU was held scoreless from the 13:43 mark until just 7:28 left to play when Sims hit the second of a pair from the charity stripe. Eastern saw its lead extend to 13 when Harrison converted on a pair of free ones, but Johnson cut it back to 10, 43-33, with a triple. Riley gave Eastern its first field goal in 10 minutes and six seconds at the 3:37 mark to put EMU up 12, 47-35, with under four minutes to play. EMU and the RedHawks traded buckets through the final four minutes of play to take the game, 58-47, and advance to the quarterfinals.

THE EMU IDENTITY 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. On 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.

MID-AMERICAN CONFERENCE Providing leadership in education and diversity, the MidAmerican Conference moves into its 67th year of service to the student-athlete. 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 ten football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) conferences, the MAC named Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher as its eighth commissioner in March of 2009. The league has grown its commitment to championships by expanding to seven its number of neutral site post season events – football (Ford Field, Detroit), volleyball (SPIRE Academy, Geneva, Ohio), men’s and women’s basketball (Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland), softball (Firestone Stadium, Akron) and baseball (All Pro Freight Stadium, Avon, Ohio). In addition, the SPIRE facility will also serve as the site for the 2014 women’s swimming & diving championship and 2015 men’s swimming & diving championship. In 2012, the MAC set a conference record with seven teams receiving a bowl invitation, including the first ever BCS Bowl invitation with Northern Illinois playing in the Discover Orange Bowl on Jan. 1, following a thrilling 44-37 double overtime win over Kent State in the 2012 Marathon MAC Football Championship game. The seven MAC programs that were extended bowl invitations included: Toledo (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl); Ball State (Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl St. Petersburg); Central Michigan (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl); Bowling Green (Military Bowl); Ohio (Advocare V100 Independence Bowl); Northern Illinois (Discover Orange Bowl) and Kent State (GoDaddy.com Bowl). The 2012 season witnessed four football programs ranked in the top 25 of national polls – Northern Illinois, Kent State, Toledo and Ohio—as the BCS Standings had two MAC programs in the Top 25 at the end of the regular season with No. 15 Northern Illinois and No. 25 Kent State. The MAC also set a conference record for the most wins against FBS opponents with 16 victories. MAC programs were 4-4 against the Big East Conference, including wins over Rutgers, Cincinnati, UConn and South Florida, and three wins against opponents from the Big Ten Conference, including wins over Penn State, Iowa and Indiana. The dramatic 2012 football season was capped as Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher was selected as the first overall selection by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 NFL Draft, becoming the first football player from the MAC with such an honor. For the first time in league history, the MAC will have seven bowl relationships--three primary and four secondary. The three primary agreements are with the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl (Detroit, Mich.), GoDaddy Bowl (Mobile, Ala.) and Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Boise, Ida.). In addition, the MAC has secured secondary agreements with the BBVA Compass Bowl, the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, the Beef O’Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowl and the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. In its partnership with ESPN, the MAC is in the fifth year of its eight-year rights agreement (through 2016-2017 academic years) for football, as well as men’s and women’s basketball. The deal is the most extensive in the 67-year history of the conference. The agreement 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 Game and a minimum of 11 regularseason football games. In men’s basketball, the MAC witnessed Akron reach the FirstEnergy MAC Men’s Basketball Tournament for the seventh consecutive season, as the Zips won their third title in five years. Also, Ohio University earned an invitation to the NIT, while Western Michigan reached the College Basketball Invitational Final Four after wins over North Dakota State and Wyoming. Kent State received an invitation to the CollegeInsider.com Tournament and defeated Fairfield in the opening round. Akron center Zeke Marshall and Ohio point guard D.J. Cooper were selected to play in the 2013 Reese’s Division I College All-Star Game, as Cooper garnered MVP game honors. During the 2012-13 academic year, the University of Akron men’s soccer team won its ninth MAC championship and fifth in the last six years, as the Zips advanced to their fifth consecutive NCAA Round of 16 appearance after defeating Michigan. Akron witnessed senior midfielder Scott Caldwell named as the All-America Scholar Athlete of the Year by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)

and a semifinalist for the Hermann Trophy. The MAC had two student-athletes selected in the first round of the 2013 Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft – No. 3 overall Akron goalkeeper David Meyes (Portland Timbers) and No. 12 overall West Virginia defender Eric Schoenle (Philadelphia Union). The MAC also welcomed the addition of West Virginia as an affiliate member in men’s soccer for the 2012-13 academic year. In wrestling, the MAC welcomed Missouri, Northern Iowa and Old Dominion (2014-15) as affiliate members. Missouri won the 2013 conference tournament title as an affiliate member, snapping Central Michigan’s 11-year reign as champions. The MAC had a conference-best 40 wrestlers earn an invitation to the NCAA Division I National Championship and 11 wrestlers earned All-America status – Central Michigan seniors Ben Bennett, school’s first four-time All-American, and Jarod Trice; Kent State senior Dustin Kilgore, schools first three-time All-American; Missouri’s Alan Waters, Nathan McCormick, Drake Houdashelt, Mike Larson, and Dom Bradley, matching the schools most All-Americans in a single-season; Northern Iowa’s David Bonin and Ryan Loder; and Ohio redshirt freshman Cody Walters. In men’s cross country, Eastern Michigan claimed its 17th conference championship, while the Eagles captured their 31st conference title in men’s swimming and diving. The 31 championship titles for Eastern Michigan in men’s swimming and diving is a conference record. In addition, Eastern Michigan won the program’s 14th conference championship in indoor track and field. Kent State won the program’s fifth consecutive and 19th overall conference title and received its 26th NCAA appearance. Kent State and Ball State both advanced to the NCAA Men’s Conference Championship, marking only the fifth time since 1983 the conference had two programs advance in the NCAA postseason tournament. In men’s tennis, Western Michigan won its second consecutive conference championship and tenth title in the last 15 years. In men’s outdoor track and field, Akron won its third consecutive conference title and program’s fifth championship in the last six years. In baseball, Bowling Green won the program’s first conference title since 1999 as the No. 6 seed in the conference tournament. Women’s athletics continued to shine for the MAC this past year. The MAC had a total of six women’s basketball programs invited to postseason tournaments. Central Michigan claimed the MAC tournament title for the first time since 1984 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament, while Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Miami and Toledo all received at-large invitations to the WNIT Tournament. Three MAC programs – Ball State, Bowling Green and Toledo – all reached the WNIT Sweet 16. In women’s soccer, Miami earned its fourth MAC title in program history and Central Michigan earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, becoming the first team in conference history to earn an at-large bid. Central Michigan fell to Michigan in overtime, 2-1, while Miami defeated Tennessee 3-2 (OT) in the first round of the NCAA tournament and fell to Duke in the second round. Miami senior forward Jess Kodiak was named third team All-America by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Kodiak, along with Katie Slaughter of Central Michigan and Kayla Zakrzewski of Miami, were named All-Great Lakes Region First Team by the NSCAA.

In volleyball, Bowling Green claimed the MAC title for the second time since 1991 and became the first team in program history to win a NCAA Tournament match. The Falcons defeated Yale in the first round, 3-2, and fell to Penn State in the second round. In women’s cross country, Toledo claimed its fifth title in school history in record fashion.

Eastern Michigan University Where We’re Located Eastern Michigan University is located in historic Ypsilanti, about 10 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 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. Ypsilanti plays a leading role in industry and education. The city and the University have forged close ties that have lasted more than 160 years.

What Makes Us Unique In 1849, 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 23,000 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.

Our History

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

Founded in 1849, 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 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 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), new Student Center (2006), and the new Science Complex (2010).

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.

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. 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 student-athletes 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.

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. 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 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. 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 MidAmerican 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 studentathletes. If you have any questions about any NCAA, MAC or institutional rules, please contact the Christopher Hoppe at 734.487.3263 or choppe3@emich.edu.

Student Athlete Support Student-Athlete Support Services Academic, personal and professional support are essential to college success. At EMU, Student-Athlete Support Services (SASS) helps student-athletes reach their full potential. 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 student-athlete, 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 studentathlete 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.

Athletic Training and 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. The 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. Tara MasterHunter, Dr. Zoe Foster, Dr. David Alvarez, Dr. George Pujalte, Dr. Wally Roeser, Dr. Bruce Miller, Dr. Don Wurtzel 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 and the team dentist. 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 student-athlete 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 operates out of three campus athletic training facilities in the Convocation Center, Bowen Field House and the Rynearson Stadium team building.

Sports Performance/Strength and Conditioning Our Sports Performance Program applies a complete approach to scientifically and practically progress each individual athlete. Our purpose is to improve all components that will aid in achieving maximal athletic performance while reducing the occurrence of injury. We incorporate athletic based, free weight, multi-joint, and multi-directional movements which vary from a diverse collection of strength and conditioning disciplines to prepare each athlete for the general and specific demands of their sport. Standards that will be implemented at all times are: Integrity, Attention to Detail, Quality before Quantity, and Execution before Innovation. Assuming quality thought and effort have been put into a sports performance program, all else being equal, the program feels that these three components are usually separating an elite level program from the average. Incorporating Daily Competitions – The ability for athletes to compete in an every day setting is critical to the success of team and individual sports. Anything from team relay’s, to 1 on 1 tug of wars, to using a dumbbell weight heavier than the previous week. I simply make the statement to my teams, “WIN THE DAY.” Work harder – beat your last weeks sets/reps/weight/time, COMPETE! There is competitive nature in all mankind. Sometimes it takes a little extra effort on the coaching end to see it. Fill your team with competitors and your program will take care of itself. Physical and Mental Sport Transfer – Training to the specifics of the sport, and style that the head coaches are teaching is an essential way to succeed at any level. Find out what the sport coaches are looking to achieve and speak their same language. You are an addition to their staff, hop on board and cater your philosophy to their needs. Giving each athlete specific examples of on field/on court experiences where success can either be earned or an opportunity can be lost. Being able to make athlete’s understand the importance of mental toughness that is needed in the weight room and how it transfers over to their sport. The pain, the physical and mental struggles they endure in each training session is setting them up for success for their competitive season. Fight for every rep just as you would for any rebound, blocked shot, interception, or stolen base. Make references back to their closest contests that might have been decided by one play – (or one rep). Positive Influential Environment – Do athletes leave the weight room looking to return for more or dreading the next time they have to mope through one of the most silent hours of their day? Each session, from the minute the first athlete walks in, to the last grueling minute they are dragging out, fill the room with ENERGY!!! Push them through their toughest moments and coach every rep. Show each and every athlete that you care about their progress. Stay vocal, provide positive feedback as well as constructive criticism, play that latest hip-hop track and find a way to create a positive training environment.

Convocation Center

The Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, in its 15th 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 seven first-round MAC Women’s Basketball Tournament games, four first-round MAC Volleyball Tournament games and four first-round game for the men’s basketball squad. The building also played the host for the EMU women’s basketball team’s upset of the University of Michigan in the First Round of the 2011 Women’s National Invitational Tournament (WNIT). 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, John Mayer and Jay-Z. The Convocation Center is also the site for EMU’s spring and winter commencement ceremonies. Among other events that have taken

92

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. In the summer of 2012, the Convocation Center received a major face-lift, as a YESCO four-sided ceiling hung display sign, featuring video boards on all four sides, was installed above center court in the arena. The fixture features four 10MM full color video boards, with each board’s active area measuring 15.7-foot wide by 11.5-foot tall. In addition, the system also features three ribbon displays on the west and east sides and under the scoreboard. The arena will also showcase an integrated light emitting diode (LED) courtside scorer’s table. 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-to-the-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.

Indoor Practice Facility

YPSILANTI, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) -- Eastern Michigan University’s Indoor Athletic Practice Facility, also known as “The Bubble,” is paying dividends for the University, the community and EMU athletics in its second year of operation. “I think the facility has been invaluable,” said former Eastern Michigan University’s athletic director Derrick Gragg. “It is the first time in EMU athletic history that our football team has been able to do conditioning and practice in the winter months without interruption. We also have seen improvement in our baseball and softball programs, and the practice facility has had something to do with that. This facility should help reduce the competitive advantages that other programs have had in the past and is helping EMU catch up to other schools.” “Everything has gone very smoothly,” said Mark Monahan, director of the EMU Convocation Center, which oversees the indoor practice facility. “Since January, it has been booked all the time. We have had a ton of youth sports use it.” The indoor practice facility, which cost $3.9 million to build, was inflated during February 2010. The facility is a permanent airsupported structure that is 410 feet long, 210 feet wide, and 75 feet tall; and includes a welcome center (1,100 square feet) and convertible space (86,000 square feet) that can be configured for a football field, an international soccer field, four youth soccer fields or two youth baseball/softball fields. A full-time supervisor and students staff the facility. The facility, located at 150 Westview Drive, is open Monday-Friday, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Youth soccer, Little League baseball, high school football teams, EMU club sports, recreational groups and six intercollegiate teams have used the facility since it opened last year, said Monahan. The six intercollegiate sports that use the facility are football, baseball, softball, women’s soccer, and men’s and women’s golf. “It’s been fantastic for our league,” said Dave York, soccer manager for Total Sports Complex. “We are able to incorporate more Ann Arbor-based clubs so they don’t have to drive so far to play.” Total Sports Complex runs youth soccer programs — that includes approximately 700 players — in southeastern Michigan and Ohio. Monahan said there has been one challenge for the facility. “Parking has been an issue because business is so good,” he said. The facility has 100 spaces, but the volume associated with its use has led Monahan to request additional parking. Currently, Mo-

nahan said that a shuttle service to and from additional parking at Westview has helped offset the situation. “We need about 50 more spaces,” said Monahan. He said there is a proposal to add additional spaces on a hill near the existing spaces. Monahan said the facility had netted $325,000 in user fees as of March and is “in the black.” However, he said some utility billing issues are still being worked out so determining a profit margin is difficult at this point. “I think it was a great decision by the University,” said Monahan of building the facility. “The community seems pleased. It has been wonderful for the University and it is paying for itself.”

EMU Athletic Club

Supporting EMU StudentAthletes Since 1994 The EMU Athletic Club provides vital financial support to more than 550 student-athletes at Eastern Michigan University as they strive for excellence on the court and in the classroom. Nearly 1,000 donors generously supported our outstanding scholar-athletes each year. Established in 1994, the EMU Athletic Club raises funds in three key areas for EMU’s 21 varsity athletic teams: annual-use operating funds, endowment, and facility related projects. Today, annual-use giving is the most critical area of support needed by the Athletic Department. These contributions directly support the operating budgets of our teams and help provide the most basic needs to our coaches and student-athletes, including comprehensive national recruiting efforts, out of region travel to maintain nationally competitive schedules, equipment such as uniforms, balls, nets, bats, and much more. Gifts to any of our teams, or to the Eagles for Excellence Fund (which will be used for the most urgent needs of the athletic department), are an investment in the future leaders of the state of Michigan. Join the EMU Athletic Club today and make a difference for EMU Athletics.

NCAA 1987-88: “FIRST DANCE”

FIRST DANCE After recording a fourth-place finish in the MidAmerican Conference in 1986-87, the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team entered the 1987-88 season with hopes of challenging for the league title. The then-Hurons did indeed win the school’s first-ever MAC men’s basketball title and a whole lot more by the time the season officially came to a close, March 18, 1988, in Lincoln, Neb. Senior center Grant Long and freshman point guard Lorenzo Neely were the catalysts for an over-achieving EMU squad that won the MAC regular-season and post -season titles, while qualifying for the school’s first-ever NCAA-Division I Tournament appearance. With Long providing the inside scoring punch with a 23.2 scoring average and Neely running the offense as the point guard, the Hurons won the MAC’s regular-season title with a 14-2 record. Heading into the MAC Tournament as the No. 1 seed, the Green and White knocked off Western Michigan, 9588, in the first round and handed Ohio University a 94-80 setback in the championship tilt. From there it was on to the Bob Devaney Sports Complex at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln for the NCAA regional. The No. 15-seeded Hurons squared off against the No. 2-seeded University of Pittsburgh in the first round, March 18, 1988. The Panthers, paced by the highly touted threesome of Charles Smith (31 points), Demetreus Gore (24 points) and Jerome Lane (22), knocked off the Hurons by a 108-90 count. Eastern was led by guard Brad Soucie with 26. Long, in foul trouble from the start, was limited to 15 points. Neely added 18 points. For the season, Long was named MAC Player of the Year and Neely was voted MAC Freshman of the Year.

HITTING THE ROAD FOR THE NIT It just doesn’t get any more exciting than the Eagles’first-ever appearance in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) March 16, 1995. A young Eastern squad finished third in the Mid-American Conference regular season but came on strong in the league’s postseason tournament before bowing to Ball State in the championship game. With Ball State and Ohio receiving NCAA bids, the Green and White anxiously awaited a call from the NIT. Eastern got the nod from the NIT and was sent to Peoria, Illinois, to face off against the Bradley Braves. The Eagles made their first-ever NIT a memorable one with a heartbreaking 86-85 doubleovertime loss to Bradley. With 0:34 left in regulation and trailing by three, EMU guard Brian Tolbert connected on a three-point field goal to tie it and force the first overtime. Eastern raced out to a 76-72 lead in the early stages of the first OT before Bradley rallied to tie at with 0:05 left, making a second overtime a necessity. The Eagles held an 85-84 lead after Theron Wilson made two free throws but Bradley won the game with 0:07 left on two free throws. Eastern had four players in double figures, led by Brian Tolbert with 23, Theron Wilson adding 20, Kareem Carpenter, 19 and Earl Boykins, 13.

The third trip to the NCAA Tournament was a charm for the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team. The 1995-96 Eagles turned in one of the most memorable seasons in school history, notching their third regular-season and postseason MAC titles and qualifying for a third appearance in the NCAA tournament. Bowen Field House was charged with electricity Sunday, March 12, 1996, when the EMU squad, along with a huge group of fans and supporters, was on hand for the nationally televised NCAA Pairings Show. The packed house of fans roared with excitement and anticipation when it was announced that Eastern Michigan and Duke would be opponents in the Southeast Regional to be played at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis, Ind. The Duke Blue Devils entered the game seeded No. 8 while the underdog Eagles of Eastern Michigan were seeded No. 9. Playing before a raucous crowd of 31,373 in the RCA Dome, along with a national television audience, the Eastern backcourt tandem of Earl Boykins (23 points) and Brian Tolbert (20) dominated, while Derrick Dial added 12 up front to lead the Eagles to a 75-60 decision in the first round.

NCAA 1997-98: “A TEAM OF DESTINY”

The 1997-98 EMU Men’s Basketball Squad: Front row (L-R) Manager Chad Double, Manager Nate Purcell, Assistant Coach Mike Shedd, Assistant Coach Lorenzo Neely, Head Coach Milton Barnes, Assistant Coach Tony Harvey, Assistant Coach Todd Lickliter, Manager Lonnie Griffin, and Manager Ben Bosserd. Back row (L-R) Jon Zajac, James Head, Derrick Dial, Jamaal Jenks, Avin Howard, Earl Boykins, Sharif Fordham, Charlie Eibeler, Corey Tarrant, Nkechi Ezugwu, and Ajani Williams.

A TEAM OF DESTINY HEADS TO CONNECTICUT If there was ever a team of destiny, it was the 1997-98 Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball squad. Those 1997-98 Eagles seemed to have it all. Eastern possessed one of the most dynamic backcourts in the country in Earl Boykins and Derrick Dial. Add to that a veteran front line of Jon Zajac, James Head and Nkechi Ezugwu, and the Eagles were ready for postseason action. That group of four seniors, Boykins, Dial, Head and Ezugwu, had gone through the NIT wars as freshmen, and were joined by transfer Zajac in time for the NCAA Big Dance in 1995-96, where the Eagles gained a national reputation with an upset win over Duke before falling to No. 1 seed UConn. Yet, despite a brilliant 22-10 record in 1996-97, the Eagles sat home at tournament time. That postseason snub worked on the competitive egos of the Eagles and they responded with three great outings and won the Mid-American Conference post-season tournament title and the crown of MAC Champions. As the MAC representative to the NCAA Tournament, Eastern had hopes of making some noise at the dance, and when it was announced that EMU would meet Michigan State in the first-round game in Hartford, Conn., the players were excited to get a shot at the Big Ten Co-Champion Spartans. With a national television crowd watching, and a sellout crowd of 16,105 on hand in the Hartford Civic Center, the No. 13- seeded Eagles displayed the poise that they had exhibited over the past four years, racing to an early, 16-9 lead. No. 4 seeded Michigan State then went to its huge size advantage and shut down the Eagles and record an 83-71 win. Dial closed out his brilliant career with a game-high 29 points to go along with eight boards while his backcourt mate, Boykins, was held to 18 points in his final game for the Eagles. Zajac added 10 points for the Eagles.
