KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- Northern Illinois broke its own NCAA Division I record for futility, scoring just four points in the first half of a 42-25 loss to Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

The Huskies (4-14, 2-4 Mid-American) also broke the record for lowest field goal percentage in a half of the shot clock era and tied the mark for fewest field goals after hitting 1 of 31 attempts for 3.2 percent. Abdel Bader scored on a fast break one minute into the game to put Northern Illinois up 2-0 for its only bucket of the half, and followed that with 29 straight misses. Savannah State had held the record of 4.3 percent shooting against Kansas State on Jan. 7, 2008, a game in which it also made just one field goal in the half.

Northern Illinois, which features a lineup of mostly freshmen and sophomores, had set the record for fewest points in a first half with five against Dayton on Dec. 1.

Glenn Bryant led Eastern Michigan (10-10, 3-3) with 10 points.
