CLEVELAND-NIU has made some big strides on the basketball court this season. But not enough to make it past the second round of the MAC Tournament. The Huskies lost to Eastern Michigan Wednesday evening 53-48. The Huskies had led by 11 points at halftime, but they were done in by turnovers and poor shooting in the second half.
The Huskies shot only 31.8% from the field for the game. They made only 5 of 17 three-point attempts.
Not one Huskie scored in double figures. Jordan Threloff had nine points.
NIU's final record is 15-17.
