Eastern Michigan Eagles Tickets for Sale

The backcourt will be interesting, with 5'-10' senior PG Mike Ross (7 ppg, 3 apg), who led the team in assists for the second straight season. And their big signee is freshman 6'-4' Darryl Garrett, Detroit's Public School League Player of the Year. Free throw shooting was a major weakness on this team, shooting 65% as a team from the line.

Can they win away from home? E-Michigan was 8-5 SU/4-4 ATS at home, 5-10 SU/6-9 ATS on the road. They certainly have the height to be better defensively, but they have to show it on the court. With so much experience and height, this looks like one of the more improved teams in the MAC and they may be an early-season surprise.
Eastern Michigan (13-15 SU, 10-13 ATS) plays a run and gun style with no trouble scoring (71 ppg, 46% FGs), but defense is weak, giving up 70 ppg and 45% FGs. After two-straight roughly .500 seasons, four starters return giving hope for this season.

The Eastern Michigan Eagles have a very good frontcourt in 6'-6' senior Markus Austin (13 points per game), 6'-9' senior James (Boo) Jackson (10 ppg, 8 rpg), and 6'-8', 255-lb junior John Bowler (13 ppg, 8 rpg). Throw in 6'-7', 240-lb center James Matthews, a big body transfer from Marquette, and the frontcourt appears very strong.
