This is Eastern: James Thompson
At this year's Ypsi's (ESPY-style award show for EMU athletics), they had some fun with James Thompson's propensity for technical fouls.

RE: This is Eastern: James Thompson
James is an awesome player, student and I bet a great person (I never met him) ; however, he needs to improve controlling his emotions because that could sway a game, alter his career path and impact his future post basketball career. I know they were making light of the situation, but I believe it's poor taste.

I actually think it pokes fun at referees more than Thompson. It was kind of funny.

Nickle that's my point.They are making fun of the referees which is basically sayin it's their fault and not Thompson. Anyone who has ever seen James play know that he plays very aggressively at times and several Ts are his fault. Now I love JT4 as a player, and I also love his aggressiveness but he has earned Ts that could sway an outcome either way. He needs to hone that aggressiveness and just play ball. He should be All-MAC the next two years if the coaching staff takes advantage of his talent!

RE: This is Eastern: James Thompson
Man, I can't wait until basketball season!! I will think this might be the year. My rationale, this will be the best front court I have seen at EMU since Wilson/Carpenter/Head/Ezugwu/Penissi. I think Minnie/JT4/Steel/LWF will be top of the MAC.

The loss of such a talented trio of guards may hurt. But it also may help to put more focus on the front court. Hopefully the newcomers Harris/Jackson/etc will contribute enough to maintain some balance.

I agree.

A team of Jackson (PG), Minnie (PF), JT4 © and Bond (SF) should be the best quartet in the MAC.

If my understanding is correct, these four should mesh together just perfectly. A lot of athletic ability and quicks.

As everyone has mentioned, SG????????????

Article is wrong, JT4 will be a junior.

Ramy,

JT4 is talented and we saw good spurts from Steele. Minnie is a big question mark in Murphy's system. I agree that we will again have the most talent in the front court.

My vote for our best front court player would be Grant Long. Best front court : Kory Halas and Marcus Kennedy (a bruiser, who was tough, athletic, strong, and very talented). He was a tweener and had a very successful European career after EMU. Plus that team had size and strength role players off the bench. Ah the good ole days..........
