Indiana vs Eastern Michigan Prediction Tonight
With returning leading scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker from last season, Trayce Jackson-Davis, the Hoosiers are in a great position to make a statement win at home to open up the season.
Despite having 8 freshmen on the roster, this Indiana team is still retuning a number of its key players from last year and should be able to quickly build upon that chemistry.
While the Hoosiers’ offense was nothing to write home about last year, Eastern Michigan was one of the worst defensive teams in the nation last year, ranking 333rd in the nation in opponents’ points per game. Don’t expect the Eagles to be much improved on night one of the new season in a hostile environment against an experienced team.
It’s hard to imagine Eastern Michigan doing much to stop the Hoosiers’ offense, lay the big number.
Indiana 85, Eastern Michigan 59
