CMU gets blown out in MAC opener

Posted: Updated:

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -- James Thompson IV and Baylee Steele had 18 points and 10 rebounds apiece, Jordan Nobles had 13 points, nine boards and five assists and Eastern Michigan beat Central Michigan 85-63 on Tuesday night.
   Other than minutes, Steele had never reached double digits in any category coming in. It was coach Rob Murphy's 100th career win.
   Eastern Michigan (9-5, 2-0 Mid-American Conference) never trailed in the second half, Jordan Nobles hit a 3-pointer to make it 51-38 with 14:40 left and the Eagles led by double figures the rest of the way.
   EMU used a 13-2 run and led 74-52 with 5:50 to play. Bond had a high-flying dunk -- from a step inside the free throw line -- over a defender's outstretched arms before a steal by Willie Mangum. He fed Bond, who threw alley-oop pass to Thompson for an acrobatic layup, and another Mangum steal led to a layup by Nobles to cap the spurt.
   Marcus Keene had 22 points for Central Michigan (10-4, 0-1), which committed a season-high 17 turnovers that led to 24-EMU points.
