CMU 53, Ball State 38: CMU sets school record for least points allowed to MAC opponent
CMU started its Mid-American conference schedule 2-0 for the first time in 18 years Wednesday with a 53-38 win against Ball State at Rose Arena. This team's defense is what sets it apart from a lot of teams in the MAC and for the second consecutive game, it made the difference. The amount of swarming defense down low stifled the Cardinals' Jarrod Jones, last year's MAC freshman of the year and counterpart Malik Perry, who fouled out late in the game after not scoring and not grabbing a rebound.
