Ball State 89, EMU 88 (2OT): #MACrefs

January 23, 2016

Very simply, a referee who lets something like that final sequence happen is not fit to be working a middle school game, much less Division I.

Today’s refs were Todd Williams, John Gaston, and Robert Kruger. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Williams has refereed a game that was decided on an erroneous call in the final seconds.

January 19, 2016

Once again, EMU fought hard and took a tough opponent nearly to the final buzzer, but once again, EMU came up just short, with bad decisions and defensive failures ultimately costing the Eagles the game. Read more…

Bowling Green Falcons 84, EMU 79

January 16, 2016

Never let anyone say that this EMU team doesn’t fight hard.

Down 20 points with 16 minutes left in the game, the Eagles clawed their way back, tying the score with less than two minutes left. Unfortunately they weren’t able to close it out, as the Falcons got ahead and then made their free throws, but it was a great effort nevertheless. Read more…
