EASTERN MICHIGAN EAGLES
Per Steve Wiseman
The Eagles went 22-13 last season, 11-7 in Mid-American Conference play, and should be one of the league favorites this season. Eastern Michigan returns its top three scorers, led by 6-9 senior forward Elijah Minnie (16.9 points per game). The Eagles also have 6-10 senior forward James Thompson (14.5 points, 11.2 rebounds) and 6-2 senior guard Paul Jackson (14.9 points, 4.6 assists) returning. This looks like a sneaky good test for the Blue Devils against an experienced team.
