Buried in the official recaps for Friday night
summed up this game thus: "Eastern Illinois edged out host UMKC, 72-67, Friday night to improve to 2-8 on the season."
That's it - no mention of the fact that the Kangaroos are a decent Mid-Con team, or
that they did it in Kansas City's fabled Kemper Arena, or
that this is probably going to be the best road win that EIU (RPI No. 326) is going to get all year (all due respect to Morehead State
). OK, all of that's subjective, but they could have at least talked about the best shooting performance in the country, turned in by a decent little shooting guard named Josh Gomes. The 6'2" Panther senior scored 27 points on 9-of-11 shooting, seven of which were threes (7-for-8). What's a guy got to do to get some ink around here?
