Oakland beats EMU 66-53, paced by Kangas’s 25
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP)—Erik Kangas scored 25 points and Johnathon Jones added 15 Monday to lead Oakland to a 66-53 victory over slumping Eastern Michigan.
Kangas hit six 3-pointers for the third time this season for the Grizzlies (8-6), who have won seven of their last nine games.
Oakland led from start to finish, opening the game by scoring 10 of the first 15 points.
Brandon Bowdry and Justin Dobbins had 17 and 10 respectively for the Eagles (2-9), who have yet to beat an NCAA Division I team this season. Eastern Michigan is off to its worst start since opening the 2000-01 campaign with a 2-17 record.
