Game 21- Eastern Michigan

Recommended Posts

The Zips stay on the road this Tuesday heading to Ypsilanti to face 9-11/2-6 Eastern Michigan.  EMU is coming off of a ten-point home win over Buffalo.  Their only other win was over PCCC.

All-MAC 6’4” junior guard Tyson Acuff leads the Eagles and the MAC at 21.6 ppg.  No other EMU player scores in double digits, with 6’2” sophomore guard Orlando Lovejoy as the second leading scorer at 9.4 ppg.  They are 10th on scoring and 7tn is defense in the MAC.   They’ve already won more games this season than they won all of last season during the Emoni Bates mess of a season.

Stan Heath has a 26-55 record at EMU and 236-262 record over 16 years as a head coach.   He started 30-6 at PCCC.  That's a pretty rough ride.


Acuff's 21.8 ppg going into Saturday was 5th in the NCAA.


EMU Starters in their last game:

Tyson Acuff- 6'4" guard- 21.6 ppg

Arne Osojnik- 6'6" guard- 7.7 ppg

Orlando Lovejoy- 6'2" guard- 9.4 ppg

Jalin Billngsley- 6'8" forward- 6/8 ppg

Javantae Randall- 6'11" forward- 1.7 ppg


6'8" forward Jusuf Jihad also plays a bit, averaging 7.6 ppg.

On an unrelated note, App State beat James Madison yesterday dropping JMU into a third place tie in the Sun Belt.  App. State has handed JMU its last 2 losses.

JMU should be undefeated in the Sun Belt.  Zips should be undefeated in the MAC.  Game is irrelevant now 🙄

No doubt our program is in its prime under Groce (unfortunately likely looking at a down year next year), but didn’t realize we had the best win % in the MAC since 2019..would have guessed Toledo over us with their hype every year, or maybe even Kent.
