Benched him awhile ago.  Apparently there were a bunch of scouts here.

Guarantee they are watching his every move and how he reacts to adversity. Judging by him sitting on the bench covering his face with a towel, he's not doing well.

That was stunning. Amani Lyles could have had 20 points if he hadn’t missed a few open ones. He fouled out in like 20 minutes!

 

Heath sucks. They play like an NBA team with low major talent. Bates may fill it up against us in a month, but he didn’t want to play tonight. Nobody did for them. Worst effort I’ve seen from a D1 team at the JAR in a loooong time. 
 

I’m gonna head home and crack a beer, cheers to a rare easy one. Go Zips!

Never quite seen something like that.

 

Being at the game, it was pretty insane how in Emoni Bate's head our students were. His family was motioning guns, middle fingers, etc. at them all game. 

 

His brother even walked over to confront some students about it at half time. 

 

I have never seen a fall from grace like this from a player. Seeing how his family acted, it is pretty clear the apple does not fall far from the tree.

That was a combination of the Zips being ready to play, hitting shots and EMU not wanting to be there and playing some of the worst defense I have ever seen. I have been to and watched a lot of D1 basketball in my lifetime but I am not sure I've seen a performance worse. Great atmosphere though, students definitely brought the energy and got into Bates' head quickly. Hard to think of a more lopsided MAC game in recent memory

Was in the student section. Bate’s brother came to the section to started a scene because of the “Jail” chants coming from the from of the crowd. His brother flipped a pizza and was escorted back to his seat. Got very heated for a bit there until the employees told the students to stop that chant. Electric night but almost got scary
