Men's Basketball Game Week Hampton at EMU December 21
Getting close to wrapping up the non conference schedule. Hampton has a game tomorrow at Bowling Green. Currently they are 4-6 before that game. A starting lineup may look like

Kyrese Mullen 6'7 So.
Tedrick Wilcox Jr. 6'6 Gr.
Ja'Von Benson 6'8 Jr.
Jordan Nesbitt 6'6 Jr.
Tristan Maxwell 6'3 Jr.

First option off bench is Jerry Deng 6'9 Fr.

We should win this game.

Rick Mahorn is not walking through the door for Hampton, I like EMU in this one.

Interesting trivia… I now have so much more respect/intrigue for the Hampton basketball team.

This should be a win. A loss at home to such a low ranked team would be devastating (#338 in the NET before their loss today against Bowling Green).

The line in Draftkings is currently EMU -3.5. The O/U is 148.5.

I smell a parlay.

Hmmmm, maybe. Hampton averages 81 ppg, BUT that includes 3 lower division games in which they scored high. In D1 they are averaging only 71 ppg. AND Eastern is averaging only 66.8 ppg- might be higher with a lesser opponent. So definitely a decent bet to parlay. I am just more confident on the point spread… but don’t listen to me, I have a horrible track record with betting 03-lmfao

I know it’s the week before Christmas, but the 1 PM start time on a weekday for a home game is really annoying.

My guess so Hampton can get home this evening.

Jihad’s development as a shooter has been remarkable.

RE: Men's Basketball Game Week Hampton at EMU December 21
Well, we were really good for about 36 minutes and then down right terrible to close the game. A win is a win, but it was tough to watch the bottom fall out like that. I don’t know how we are so bad at inbounding the ball, but it’s a problem that won’t seem to go away. Need to get that shored up fast.

On a positive note, Tyson Acuff is still special. Best all around scorer we’ve had since I’ve been associated with the school. We will compete with any team in the MAC when he’s playing like this.

I think any of us would’ve been VERY happy going 5-5 in OOC D1 games back in October, so kudos to these guys for exceeding expectations. There’s a long way to go, but you can see the signs that this is a decent MAC team IF (big if) they can clean up the weaknesses, like inbounding and offensive rebounds.

Also, sorry to y’all who bet them at -3.5. Baddddd beat there. Thought for sure you’d get it with some free throws at the end.

Or both are bad bets… 03-lmfao

Jihad’s overall game just completely clicked this year. A little bit of a down game offensively for him today. But 3 blocks! He may not be dominant, but we have a consistently good big man in Jihad this year.

Losing a 2-legged parlay by a single point sucks.

Acuff is indeed incredible. He is almost a Ray Lee, but actually works on his game. We need, however, to get Osojnik, Jihad and others to establish an offensive threat as well. Otherwise, we will see a whole lot of "box and one" and diamond and one" defenses going forward.
