The Eagles Tame the Broncos
Tonight found the Eagles facing off against the Broncos of Western Michigan in the battle of the Wolverine Line. Eastern was coming off against their hard fought battle against Toledo and the Broncos were coming off a victory against the Chippewas. I was hoping for a good game and I think I got one.
1. Eastern had four players scoring in double digits: Mangum with 16, Thompson with 14, Toney and Lee with 13 each.
2. Thompson was two rebounds from another double-double. Like I said for the last game, I think if he can gain more discipline, he will be something special.
3. Once Eastern got a build up of steam, it seemed like they weren’t going to look back (except for a moment…more about that below).
1. The second half free throw shooting was hovering around 55%. I really think they need to work on that a little more.
2. They came flat for about the first 3 or 4 minutes of the second half, but once they built up that steam again…
3. I think they will live by the three and die by the three.
1. Once again…the refs.
