The Zips overcame a double-digit first half deficit to beat 79-61 Eastern Michigan for their eighth win in a row.
Dru Joyce, Nate Linhart, Romeo Travis and Rob Preston all played well. Matt Futch fouled out and had four points. However, he is my player of the game for playing killer defense on John Bowler, who leads the MAC in points and rebounds per game.
Fan turnout was great for the credit union game. Hopefully it won't drop off next Thursday against Miami. Before that, the Zips will travel to Athens to play Ohio.
Coach Keith Dambrot will not release Bubba Walther from his scholarship, which would keep him from going on scholarship at Ohio University for his first year there.
