Men’s basketball goes to rival Western Michigan Saturday to bounce back from two straight losses

Last Friday, the Central Michigan men’s basketball team was in first place in the Mid-American Conference West division and preparing to face 1-13 Northern Illinois before returning home.

A week later, the Chippewas (7-10, 2-2 in MAC) are falling fast, currently in fourth place and heading to Kalamazoo to face rival Western Michigan (8-10, 2-2) with hope to stop a two-game losing streak 2 p.m. Saturday in Kalamazoo.

CMU head coach Ernie Zeigler said the Chippewas have to shoot better, among other things.

“We have to trust each other,” he said. “The issue for us is getting off to a good start defensively.”

The Broncos lost 62-59 in overtime against rival Eastern Michigan Wednesday night.

    Find a bookie and bet your savings on WMU. I was at the WMU – Duke game and despite the 30 point blow-out, WMU played them tough. Duke hit 17 of 20 3-pointers in the first half and never looked back. CMU wont hit 5 of 50 3-pointers.
