 Eastern Michigan, led by 11 points from Jordan Price, used strong rebounding and a slow shooting night from Michigan to hand the Wolverines their second upset loss at home in four days, beating the crosstown foe 45-42 on Tuesday night.
   The Eagles (8-1) shot just 15 of 46 from the field, but hauled in nine offensive rebounds to keep possessions alive and stay within striking distance. Mike Talley added nine points, and Karrington Ward finished with seven, including a 3-pointer with 3 minutes to go that put the Eagles up by three down the stretch.
   Caris LeVert scored seven of his 10 points in the second half, but missed a 3-pointer that would have tied the game with 22 seconds to go. Zak Irvin finished with 10, after missing all four of his first-half shots. Derrick Walton added nine, and the Wolverines shot just 32.6 percent from the field.
   The Wolverines (6-3) are left reeling. After beating Syracuse 68-65 last Tuesday, they have dropped two straight to New Jersey Institute of Technology and Eastern Michigan.
