The Eastern Michigan Eagles look to continue their hot start at the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks.
I don’t really know what the Eastern Michigan Eagles bring to the table because three of their four wins have come against sub division squads including Saturday’s 79-63 decision over Madonna. The Eagles built a 22 point lead after 20 minutes before going in to cruise control despite just a 41.5%-39.7%shooting edge. A 22=2 advantage at the charity stripe did the job with James Thompson IV pouring in a game high 23 points and logging 15 rebounds. Willie Mangum added 14 points and six pulls with Brandon Nazione netting eleven points and snagging seven boards.

Even though the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks are just 3-3 the defeats have been close to decent teams although the wins haven’t been against anybody of note. The Mavericks are coming off of a 93-90 loss to Minnesota in a track meet style contest where defense wasn’t on the menu. Both teams connected in the 48%-49% range where Nebraska Omaha sank four more baskets but the Golden Gophers sank more threes and free throws. Jake White led all scorers with 23 points with Tre’Shawn Thurman adding 16 points and ten rebounds. Tra-Deon Hollins contributed 13 points, seven pulls and nine helpers while JT Gibson and Randy Reed scored eleven points each.
The over is 14-3 in Eastern Michigan’s last 17 overall and the under is 18-7-1 in their last 26 Tuesday games. Neither team is expected to do much in their respective conferences but I feel I know a little more about Nebraska Omaha although not enough to bet either squad…
