Developmental games are scheduled to provide younger student-athletes the opportunities to both gain competitive experience and improve their skills. The Royals believe these games provide an essential experience to aid in player development. Student-athletes that play in developmental games are not considered "JV" members of a program; rather, they are active members of the NCAA varsity roster that may not get as much playing time at the varsity level as their peers.
EMU basketball is focused on developing our players and maximizing opportunity. With only five players on the court at any one time, the developmental games give additional competitive opportunities for younger players and those that may be recovering from an injury. All players are considered to be part of the EMU basketball family and are also able to participate in varsity contests. First-year players are not automatically assigned to developmental games.
