Jones’ 15 points leads Ball State past EMU
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP)—Jarrod Jones scored 15 points to help Ball State defeat Eastern Michigan 46-42 on Saturday afternoon.
The Cardinals (6-7, 1-0 Mid-American) led 24-13 at halftime thanks in large part to a 4-for-23 shooting performance by the Eagles. Eastern Michigan’s 13 points were the fewest in the first half of a game played at the Convocation Center since its opening in 1998.
Brandon Bowdry was the only Eagles player in double figures, finishing with 16 points on 3-for-19 shooting. Eastern Michigan (2-13, 0-1) is still looking for its first win over a Division 1 opponent this season.
Cardinals senior guard Anthony Newell had 12 points and 10 rebounds before injuring his right leg midway through the second half. Newell was carried off the court with his leg in a brace and didn’t return.
