Eastern Michigan Men Thump Siena Heights in “Education Day” Opener

The Eastern Michigan Eagles men’s basketball team got off to a hot start and never looked back as they dominated the Education Day double header from tip off to the final horn.

Eastern Michigan outclassed Siena Heights shooting an impressive 57.1% to SHU’s 33.9% field goal percentage. Six Eagles scored in double figures with 7 foot redshirt senior Boubacar Toure netting a double-double in just 18 minutes on the way to a 93-51 rout of the visiting Siena Heights Saints and provided the first of two 90+ point games for the Eagles as the EMU women also topped the number in their clash with Olivet College in the second game.
