Murphy mentioned his willingness to do this in the press conference at UDM last season. Looks like it worked out.

Why this makes SO MUCH SENSE.

If we play home and home with Vermont or a team from Florida, we keep the revenues from our home game but incur significant travel costs for the return game (like how much will it cost us to go to Long Beach State this year? Not cheap).

The Oakland series is financially like playing a NAIA team. Costs are minimal for both games.

Also the Dec 22 is a local game right after finals and before Christmas.

I love it! I hate Oakland!! This is a must win for recruiting the metro Detroit area.

Good for him. I am huge fan of Ray Lee's basketball abilities, but it is very select few that can make it to the NBA. And I agree best case would be a summer league invite. But who knows, maybe in another environment he will shine...

Yeah, he still has shots at NBA D league or Europe.

Not EMU or MAC-related but interesting to the MBB landscape:

Sounds like Blake Brown transferred to Rochester College. Best of luck to him. Hard working young man.

He was a walk-on at EMU. Hopes he is on scholarship at RC.

Agree he worked hard. Best wishes to him. I don't know if RC is on our schedule, but I hope JT4 goes easy on him. Lol.

Woah!!! Bad news, but big news. Thanks for sharing.

I am guessing 6-7 Greene will play a short but athletic center position as backup. EagleSam was speculating he would play center as it was. So big loss, but not disastrous.

Interesting that the great John Bowler made this announcement. Wish him well.

And wish Baylee Steele best of luck too!
