After scoring six points against Cleveland State University, Ray Lee responded with a vengeance by scoring a career-high 38 in EMU’s 74-69 win over the University of Texas at Arlington on Saturday night at the Convocation Center to move to 5-0 for the first time since the 1996-97 season. Lee was on top of his game as he went 5-for-5 from three-point range, 12-for-15 shooting and 9-for-12 from the foul line.
When the Eastern Michigan University men’s basketball team needed it a boost in the second half, Karrington Ward stepped up and delivered in the 81-69 victory against the Cleveland State University Vikings at the Convocation Center on Mon.
Behind 19 points from redshirt junior Olivia Fouty, the Eastern Michigan University women’s basketball team moves to 3-0 for the first time since the 2009-10 season with a 84-70 road win over the Cleveland State University Vikings at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Fouty scored 19 on 7-of-14 shooting, 1-of-3 from three-point range and 4-of-4 from the foul line to go along with five rebounds and four assists. “I am not as hesitant to get my shot blocked,” Fouty said about her willingness to go after the ball more on WEMU Radio’s Postgame. Freshman guard Cha Sweeney added 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting and 7-of-10 from the charity stripe to go along with four assists and three steals in 32 minutes. Off the bench, Jamaica Bucknor put a solid effort together with nine points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes. For Cleveland State (1-2), juniors Imani Gordon and Cori Coleman each scored 15 points. Junior guard Kiersten Green scored 13 on 4-of-11 from the field, 2-of-5 from three-point range and 1-of-3 from the foul line to go along with four rebounds.

Redshirt freshman guard Ray Lee shook off a slow start and scored a career-high 21, including a three-point make over Robert Morris University freshman forward Jeremiah Worthem to end the first half. “I feel like we got over the hump because we’ve never played against a team that got into us man-to-man this season,” Lee said.
Redshirt junior forward Olivia Fouty’s game expanded as she made four three-point shots to lead Eastern Michigan University to a win over Butler University 81-76 in overtime at the Convocation Center. Fouty scored 20 and shot 6-of-10 from the field and took her game to a whole new level on this night with her outside shooting. “Over (the) last six months, Olivia has improved her game,” EMU head coach Tory Verdi said.
There comes a time in life where one must realize when a situation is so inoperable that you have to pull the plug on even if you do not want to.

On Saturday, former Eastern Michigan University head coach Ron English was interviewed by the Associated Press a day after being fired by Vice President/Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Heather Lyke for using “inappropriate language.” In the interview, English talks about using the wrong choice of words. “As a man who has coached 21 years, obviously, on this occasion and particular meeting, I lost my poise, got upset and used language that was inappropriate, particularly as it pertains to homosexual slurs.
Eastern Michigan University Vice President/Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Heather Lyke announced Friday that head coach Ron English has been relieved of his duties effective immediately. Lyke issued a further statement through EMU Athletics early Saturday afternoon on the decision to relieve English from coaching duties: “I received a tape of a situation in which Coach English had addressed the team and used wholly inappropriate language. We hold our coaches and staff to high standards of professionalism and conduct and there is no place, particularly in a student environment, where this language is appropriate. The statements made by Coach English are absolutely unacceptable. My decision to make a change in leadership of our football program was the culmination of a lot of factors including the comprehensive review of our program, the competitive performance and this tape. Our primary interest is in the well being and success of our student-athletes and this will continue to be our priority in every decision we make and every action we take. My focus moving forward is on the quality of our student-athletes’ experience as well as the search process for the next leader of our football program.”
