What you should know
The Western Michigan Broncos return home after three games. The WMU and Eastern Michigan Eagles will face off in a Central American bout Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. ET at the University Arena at Read Fieldhouse. The teams split their matchups last year, with the EMU winning the first 85-79 away and the Broncos winning the second 71-60.
WMU was expected to have a rough time last Friday and that’s exactly how things went. 2023 “greeted” them with a 102:74 victory thanks to the Toledo Rockets. Despite the loss, WMU had strong performances from center Titus Wright, who had 18 points in addition to eight rebounds, and forward Markeese Hastings, who had eight points along with 20 boards and three blocks. Wright hadn’t helped his team much against the Kent State Golden Flashes last Tuesday, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Wright’s points were the most he had all season.
Meanwhile, the EMU didn’t have much breathing room in their game against the Central Michigan Chippewas last Saturday, but they still walked away with a 62-56 victory.
The Broncos and Eagles now sit at an identical 4-11. A few defensive stats to keep in mind as you watch: WMU has allowed its opponents to average 45.60% shooting from the floor, which is the 39th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The EMU has seen some struggles of its own as it has allowed its opponents to shoot an average of 49% from the floor, which is the 360th highest shot percentage allowed in college basketball. The good news? The teams could see more of their shots coming.
