STAY BETWEEN YOUR OPPONENT AND THE MARK. Wednesday evening, second place in the Mid-American West was at stake. (It's been a long time since the stakes were that high in February.) The game was pretty close most of the way, with 18 lead changes.
The way to defeat the strategy of fouling to gain time is to make free throws.
Eastern Michigan stopped fouling, and the Huskies ran out the clock.
Thus endeth the brief losing streak.
