The Eastern Michigan University basketball team toppled visiting Howard University on a rainy November Saturday by a score of 76-66 at the Convocation Center at home in Ypsilanti. The 4-0 Eagles shook off a slow start early in the first half and quickly dominated the 0-4 Bison by playing strong defense and out re-bounding Howard University 47-26.
EMU Junior Elijah Minnie scored a team high 21 points, while junior James Thompson contributed to the Eagle victory with 18 points. Thompson also snagged 14 rebounds. Junior Paul Jackson, out of Stone Mountain Georgia, played a stellar game at guard scoring 16 points.
This Eagles team looks good and appears to have a lot of positive chemistry.
Next up EMU takes on Indiana in Bloomington, Ind on Friday, November 24 at 4:30 pm.
