Northeastern Huskies vs Eastern Michigan Eagles 12/17/2019
It has been a see-saw ride for the Northeastern Huskies for their first 10 games of the season. They started with two wins, lost two, won one, lost two, won two and lost their last. Carrying a 50% win-loss card, they aim to put themselves in the winning column against the Eastern Michigan Eagles. NBA prospect Jordan Roland is expected to carry the offensive load as he averages 25 points per game. He also got a good range with a three-point efficiency at 46%. But the Huskies are all Jordan Roland with not much support to back him up. Only Tyson Walker averaged barely above double-digit scoring per night. Other than that, Tomas Murphy and Bolden Brace are nearly on the double-digit averages. There should be a consistent second and third scorer for the Huskies as they go along the season.
Players to watch:
J. Roland G (10 GP 37.3 MIN 25 PTS 3.1 REB 2 AST 1.7 STL 0.3 BLK 1.9 TO 54.9 FG% 92.2 FT% 46.1 3P%), T. Walker G (10 GP 28.2 MIN 10.4 PTS 1.5 REB 3.6 AST 2.1 STL 0.3 BLK 2.7 TO 46 FG% 66.7 FT% 38.5 3P%), T. Murphy F (4 GP 29.3 MIN 9.3 PTS 2.8 REB 1.5 AST 0.3 STL 0.8 BLK 2 TO 70.8 FG% 75 FT% 0 3P%).
Eastern Michigan Eagles
The Eastern Michigan Eagles are boasting a deep roster with Ty Groce leading the charge with 12.9 points per game. The numbers don’t justify his performance in the season since most of their games are blowouts. Other than Groce, Yeikson Montero, Boubacar Toure and Noah Morgan had been good prospects and contributors for the team. Toure is flirting with a double-double average with 9.9 points and 8.4 rebounds per night. He has been the most consistent contributor across the board for the Eagles. Against the Huskies, they will be hosting but it should be a good game as Roland will give the Eagles defense a challenge. A win here will potentially start another winning streak for the Eagles but it should be a good morale boost for them since this match is expected to go down the wire.
Players to watch:
T. Groce F (9 GP 30.4 MIN 12.9 PTS 5.2 REB 1.1 AST 1.9 STL 0.9 BLK 2.1 TO 47.9 FG% 73.1 FT% 28.6 3P%), Y. Montero G (9 GP 22.7 MIN 10.7 PTS 2.3 REB 1.8 AST 1.9 STL 0 BLK 2.4 TO 37.5 FG% 69 FT% 29.4 3P%), B. Toure C (9 GP 23.9 MIN 9.9 PTS 8.4 REB 0.4 AST 1.7 STL 1.3 BLK 2 TO 66.1 FG% 53.6 FT% 0 3P%).
