Defense holds out as Ball State defeats Georgia Southern at home

While most Ball State students hunkered down in their first week of winter break, the men’s basketball team took to the court in Worthen Arena against Georgia Southern. Defeating the Eagles 58-54 after a nervy first half, the Cardinals sit 8-4 with one game left before the Mid-American Conference (MAC) regular season begins with Toledo Jan. 3.

“[When] we’re looking at scheduling and things of that nature, you are competing against other, more established meets that are on the schedule,” Wheatley said. “Our sport is a little different from other sports, again, it’s you’re at the mercy of what’s going on that weekend, and we have come up against a couple weekends where there are some established meets that attract other teams.”

A Homecoming Welcome

The Cardinals host Eastern Michigan in the 2022 homecoming game with both sides coming into the matchup 4-3 overall. Ball State played a comeback role in the last three games, defeating Northern Illinois in overtime, beating Central Michigan 17-16 after trailing most of the game and most recently knocking off UConn with a shutout in the second half after being behind 21-10 at halftime.
