The Miami men’s basketball team fell to Eastern Michigan 58-48 in a defensive struggle at Millett Hall on Saturday. Miami’s offense couldn’t buy a basket for large stretches of the contest, including an excruciating 1-for-26 shooting spurt that lasted over sixteen minutes. “I thought we started the game out okay defensively,” MU head coach Jack Owens said. “Offensively, the entire game, we just couldn’t get in the flow. Of the things that we worked on in practice, we didn’t have a lot of carry-over there.” Miami shot a season-low 30.4 percent from the field and scored only 18...Read More
Senior guard Abdoulaye Harouna has reenrolled at Miami and rejoined the men’s basketball team. Harouna was on the roster to start the season, but took a two-month hiatus from the team and university. The reason for his sabbatical is unknown. Originally a transfer from Southern Idaho, the 6’5”, 178-pounder had been a mainstay in the RedHawks’ lineup for the past two seasons, starting a combined 46 games over that period. He averaged 6.7 points per game and 2.4 rebounds per game during the 2016-2017 season. His last game played was Miami’s first round loss to Western Michigan in last year’s Mid-American Conference tournament. Harouna started for the RedHawks and scored a team-high 15 points. Harouna is expected to play off the...Read More
The Miami Basketball RedHawks (10-9, 3-3 Mid-American) restored their winning ways Saturday at Millett Hall with a 71-53 win over the Ball State Cardinals (12-7, 3-3 Mid-American).

After holding a halftime lead, the Miami Basketball team (9-9, 2-3 MAC) struggled offensively and defensively in the second half and fell to Bowling Green (12-6, 3-2 MAC) 81-70 at Millett Hall on Tuesday. Miami scored 27 points off 18 caused turnovers for the game, but couldn’t overcome the Falcons’ 51 points and 70 percent shooting in the second half. “I thought we had a great first half,” Miami head coach Jack Owens said. “We didn’t execute great from an offensive standpoint, but we did some really good things defensively. Then we get in that second half, from...Read More
Last weekend’s second half collapse against Western Michigan seemed to strike a chord with the Miami RedHawks as they played inspired basketball to beat Kent State 80-69 at Millett Hall on Tuesday. “We most definitely came out with a chip on our shoulder,” Miami freshman guard Nike Sibande said. “That last game kinda left a bad taste in our mouth, so coming out this game, we had a point to prove.” The ‘Hawks offense came out blazing in the first half, as they shot 54.1 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from three during the half. They never...Read More
