Women's basketball travels to Eastern Michigan


Ball State women's basketball travels to Eastern Michigan on Feb. 27, against an Eagles team that has won five straight games.

The last time the two teams played was on Jan. 20 when Ball State won 76-54.

Eastern Michigan, 18-8 (9-6 Mid-American Conference), has since recovered from that game, winning six of its next nine and is currently competing for one of the top sports in the MAC.

Ball State, 18-8 (10-5 MAC), is now two games back of first place in the MAC West Division after its 1-point loss to division leader Central Michigan.

It will be a well balanced game as Eastern Michigan focuses its offensive attack while Ball State focuses on defense.

Eastern Michigan averages 72.4 points per game compared with Ball State's 69.5. The Eagles allow 64.7 points per game, while the Cardinals allow 60.8 points per game.

This will be the third to last game of the regular season for the Cardinals and their second to last away game. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m. in Ypsilanti, Mich.
