Our Eastern Michigan Eagles lost a tough one at the Covocation Center in Ypsilanti to an unrelenting Kent State team. Although Eastern lost, fans were treated to one of the closest match-ups of the season for the 13-9 Eagles as the lead see-sawed back and fourth throughout the entirety of the game.
The 12-10 Golden Flashes of Kent State jumped to an early 9-0 lead that set the tone for a tight and tense contest that wasn't decided until the final 2 minutes of the game.
EMU shot 21 of 57 from the field, while notching six from three point range. Eastern's league dominating defensive play created 23 turnovers.
Senior Willie Magnum was EMU's high scorer with an impressive 22 points.
Next up for our EMU Eagles will be the Northern Illinois Huskies in DeKalb with a 3:30 tip off.
