Yeah, so this game was CLASSIC NIU - EMU BRICKsketball. The type of game that leaves you scratching your head and questioning your sanity. EMU trailed by 12 at one point, and yet somehow came back, despite shooting below 30 percent for the night and having Da'Shonte Riley foul out midway through the second half. Yeah, it makes no sense.
It's a truly puzzling display of basketball, and the officials were as awful.
Still, EMU "won" and thus advances to the quarterfinals to take on No. 3 Buffalo Thursday night.
