Recap: Eastern Mich vs. Northern Ill

Ypsilanti, MI (Sports Network) - Glenn Bryant had 10 points and three blocks, as the Eastern Michigan Eagles notched a 42-25 win over the Northern Illinois Huskies in a defensive slugfest between Mid-American Conference rivals at the Convocation Center.

Bryant was the game's only double-digit scorer, as the Eagles (10-10, 3-3 MAC) used a staunch defensive effort to improve to 10-2 at home this season. The 25 points allowed is EMU's lowest total since a 61-21 win over Hillsdale College on Jan. 21, 1943.

The Huskies (4-14, 2-4) were held to a NCAA record-low four points at halftime. The 2008 Savannah Tigers are the only other team in the modern era to score just four points in any half.

EMU led 18-4 at halftime, as the Huskies could muster only one field goal in the opening frame. NIU shot a brutal 1-of-31 from the floor for a 3.2-percent success rate.

For the game, the Huskies shot just 8-of-61 from the floor (.131) and 1-of-33 from beyond the arc (.003) to tie the lowest field-goal percentage in NCAA history since the beginning of the shot clock era in 1986.

Extra Points: Snyder and the Beltway radio wars

If contradiction was an Olympic sport, Chip Kelly would certainly be medal-worthy judging by his performance at the NFL's owners meeting but the Eagles coach might have to settle for silver because Daniel Snyder's critics will take the gold every time.

There isn't much after that. The Miami Marlins are loaded up for a playoff push -- likely through a wild card spot -- and the New York Mets are up-and- coming but still raw. The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies, former powerhouses of the division, are going through rebuilds and won't contend anytime soon.
