Despite the frigid temperatures outside, it was raining inside the George Gervin GameAbove Center - raining three-pointers that is. The Eastern Michigan University men's basketball connected on 14 three-point field goals, tied for the second-most in program history, as the team bested Miami University, 85-75, Saturday, Jan. 29.

EMU connected on a Gervin Center record 12 triples in the first half, surpassing the previous standard of 10 set against Olivet College, as it hung 55 points in the opening 20 minutes of work.

Offensively, the Eagles were led by freshman Noah Farrakhan (Newark, N.J.-The Patrick School (East Carolina)), who scored 28 points and dished out a team-best seven assists. Senior Nate Scott (Naperville, Ill.-Neuqua Valley (Northern Illinois)) produced 25 points, shooting an electric 6-of-12 from deep. Junior Bryce McBride (Jackson, Tenn.-Southside (Dyersburg State C.C.)) added nine points and an assist off the bench.

Eastern Michigan took advantage of fantastic ball movement in Saturday's game, piling up 15 assists on 29 made field goals. 

The Eastern Michigan defense held Miami shooters to just 39.5 percent from the field. N. Scott hauled in 10 rebounds to give him his first double-double as a member of the Green and White, and recorded a pair of blocks and steals. Freshman Mo Njie (Centerville, Ohio-Centerville (DME Sports Academy)) was solid around the glass with nine boards. In total, EMU out-rebounded the RedHawks 45-to-34
