Wait...We've Already Played Them
Things did not go well for us at all when we faced them last. On January 12th, Buffalo traveled to Ypsilianti to build off of it's momentum of taking down one of the top teams in the conference. Eastern dominated on the defensive end and despite shutting down star freshman James Thompson for the first half, they also ran away with the offensive side of things as well.
What Has Happened Since
Since the ugly 81-69 loss, EMU has had a rough time. The Eagles lost five straight games before finally grabbing a win against Miami:
- Lost to BG 84-79
- Lost Akron 92-88
- Lost to Ball State 88-87 (WITH THE MOST RIDICULOUS OFFICIATING)
- Lost to Kent 73-58
- Lost to WMU 94-86
- Won against Miami 94-69
Can We Win?
I honestly think we can go 3-0 in this three game home stand as long as True Blue continues to be loud. I'm thinking it'll be a good day for the Bulls.
