Early wake-up call for Bona women at Eastern Michigan

St. Bonaventure women’s basketball has an early tip off Friday, but that likely won’t bother freshman Jalisha Terry.

The Bonnies’ 11 a.m. contest against Eastern Michigan (3-5) serves as her personal homecoming game. Terry’s hometown of Flint is roughly an hour away from the EM campus in Ypsilanti. (105.9 FM; ESPN3)

She returns to familiar surroundings fresh off earning Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honors, following a three-game stretch where she averaged nearly 14 points per game – all wins by the Bonnies. She has set career highs for points in three of her past four games, including a 17-point effort Nov. 30 against Stony Brook.

Bona (4-4), however, looks to regroup following Tuesday’s 57-35 loss at Bucknell, the start of a two-game road swing that concludes Saturday at Toledo.
