Current Records: Western Illinois 4-1; Eastern Michigan 1-3
What to Know
The Western Illinois Leathernecks’ road trip will continue as they head to Convocation Center at 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday to face off against the Eastern Michigan Eagles. WIU should still be feeling good after a victory, while EMU will be looking to right the ship.
The Leathernecks have more to be thankful for after their matchup against the Northern Kentucky Norse on Monday. WIU skirted past NKU 69-67.
Meanwhile, EMU was expected to have a tough go of it this past Saturday, and that’s exactly how things played out. They suffered a grim 83-59 defeat to the Michigan State Spartans. One thing holding the Eagles back was the mediocre play of guard Monty Scott, who did not have his best game: he played for 31 minutes with and six turnovers.
The Leathernecks are now 4-1 while EMU sits at 1-3. WIU is 2-1 after wins this year, and EMU is 1-1 after losses.
