Central Michigan wrap-up

January 21, 2010

Well, the Eagles had balanced scoring, with five players reaching double digits, but the depth (no other scorers) certainly leaves something to be desired. The Chippewas weren’t much better, getting 83% of their scoring from just three players. Ultimately, the difference was shooting. Eastern finished at 35.7%, 28.0% on 3-point attempts, and 59.3% on free throws, compared to 51.2%, 41.2%, and 66.7% for Central. Eastern was only able to keep it close by taking 13 more attempts.

With this loss, Eastern falls to 9-8 for the season (7-8 against Division I opponents) and the 1-3 conference records drops them to fifth place in the MAC West, a game ahead of Toledo, with three quarters of the conference schedule still remaining. Next up, the Eagles will host Ball State, coming in at 8-8 (2-2), this Saturday at 2pm at the Convocation Center.
