This Tuesday, there is an NCAAB matchup between the Ball State Cardinals and the Eastern Michigan Eagles. This game will take place at the Convocation Center at approximately 7:00 P.M EST.
Eastern Michigan Looks To Get Back On TrackThe Eastern Michigan Eagles have looked like a very inconsistent basketball team so far this season. The Eagles enter this conference game with a 10-6 record despite losing to Northern Illinois by three points on the road in their last game. In that game, Eastern Michigan's offense struggled as it only scored 68 points while shooting just 24.0% from the three-point line. After starting the season with victories in nine of its first ten games, Eastern Michigan has fallen apart as it has lost five of its last six games. Now, the Eagles will be looking to get back on track with another home game up next.
Leading the Eagles offensively is junior forward Ty Groce who has been pretty good so far this season. He is averaging a team-high 11.6 points per game along with 5.4 rebounds. In addition, he has also been extremely solid defensively as he is averaging 2.1 steals per game. However, he is shooting just 39.5% from the floor so he has been pretty inefficient.

In addition, he is also averaging 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks so he has been very active on both sides of the ball up to this point.
