Toledo shoots over 70% in the first half and is up 24 vs. Bowling Green at the break, 54-30.

Being Bulls you guys should have a field day against BG’s matador defense. Olé!

I agree. Both buffalo and Toledo are teams that are deep talented and healthy. When you put that with great team chemistry you get good teams on a roll. Both could win the right match up in ncaas.

Ball st initially had what it takes to match that, but things haven't worked out and they are more like an average team that can beat you if you have a bad night.

Western is just thinner on talent. So much rides on wilder for success you need him and one of the inconsistent wings to both be on top of their game. Like bsu their bigs are flat footed.

Miami is an improving work in progress that's thin inside.

Kent's the only real sleeper threat to ub and ut in Cleveland

Not too many huge games today. Ball state has a chance to show they are still contenders against Toledo. Id say the biggest game is Buffalo at Kent. Kent has looked good lately and they get the Bulls on their home court. A flashes win would make the top of the conference a lot more interesting.

It would also really narrow the perceived gap between UB/Toledo and the next rung.

Miami overcomes an early 13-point deficit to win 79-64 against Akron - we held Ivey scoreless in the first half the game after he put up 48 on Ball State.

We just finished up a stretch of the MAC schedule where 6 of the first 9 were home games, now in the back half we'll only have 3 of 9 with our opponents being Toledo, UB, and OU. That Toledo game will be broadcast on CBSSN with Szczerbiak on the call so that'll be nice.

Well the foul calls against UB finally caught up with them... It was (1) part UB being in foul trouble and (1) part Kent state being fantastic from the foul line.

Flashes come from 18 down to win 82-79. The plot thickens.
