Former top recruit scores 29 straight points in first half

Eastern Michigan star Emoni Bates completed one of the best halves you’ll see in college basketball on Tuesday night.

In an away game against Toledo, Bates went on an absolute tear and scored 29 consecutive points during the first half of the game. The rest of his team combined for a total of six points.

Bates entered college basketball as one of its most exciting prospects (No. 5 overall in the 247 Sports Composite Rankings) back in 2021 at Memphis. However, he’s really come into his own playing for his hometown Eastern Michigan Eagles this season after transferring.

The rising star continues to pave a bright future for himself on the court with performances like this. It’s just an incredible feat to score nearly 30 points in a row.

The Eagles (4-16) would surely love to have him back, but the sophomore forward/guard would be eligible for the 2023 NBA draft this summer. 

As for the rest of the game, Bates finished with a career high 43 points on 15-for-23 shooting, including a 9-for-14 mark from 3. Unfortunately for him and the Eagles, Toledo won the game 84-79.
