RE: MAC basketball 2021 ...
Yesterday's situation in Buffalo was pretty crazy. The whole UB team was warming as normal. A couple CMU guys were on the court shooting. The UB radio broadcast started at 4:30 as normal and then shortly after Coach Davis called his guys off the court and that was it.

Not sure the deal leading up to it, but doesn't sound like Central Michigan should have ever made the trip to Western New York if they had COVID concerns.

RE: MAC basketball 2021 ...
Akron got hit hard with covid during the preseason and OOC play. It was particularly brutal as they lost 4 starters from last years team and needed to work new faces in. They started off a little rough, but they have been playing much better team basketball over the past two weeks. I feel you're going to seem them trend upwards in all those metrics as the season goes on and the sample size increases.

That was a fun game to watch. What is Ohio's record in MAC games when Jason Preston played?

It probably will if Toledo wins. If Toledo loses, that brings more teams into the mix and we’ll not know the regular season champ for a while.

The Akron game is huge for Akron as they would have an inside track with 2 wins over Toledo. The last game seemed fluky to me though so I expect a comfortable win at home for the Rockets. Toledo will also drop a couple more somewhere. Buffalo, Ball State and BG being threats.

the only threats. toledo is too balanced with too many scorers to lose to a weak team. in fact toledo has not even had a close game with anyone who isn't pretty good. if the rockets beat akron tuesday, i would not expect them to have more than 2 mac losses barring unforeseen injuries.

I think a lot of people over look the fact Akron lost 4 of their top 5 players from last years team and didn't really have an OOC schedule because of covid. They had to learn to build team chemistry during MAC play. Toledo is a good team and still very well may win this game, but this is a much different Akron team than you faced earlier in the season. They no longer need LCJ to drop 25-30+ a night to be competitive.

There are too many games left in the season. If Toledo wins they will be sitting pretty, but I don't think it's a guarantee that they will win the league. If Akron wins the game then technically they're still 1/2 a game back of Toledo and only up 1 game in the loss column from the winner of the Kent/Miami game.

Maybe you are better than a few weeks ago. From what I saw that game, I wouldn't lay the game in the hands of your bigs hitting threes at the buzzer multiple times.

More postponements announced today...

https://getsomemaction.com/news/2021/2/1...edule.aspx

Quote:The following games have been POSTPONED...
Tuesday, February 2 – Bowling Green at Eastern Michigan
Tuesday, February 2 – Northern Illinois at Western Michigan
Saturday, February 6 – Eastern Michigan at Ohio
Tuesday, February 9 – Eastern Michigan at Miami

The following games have been MOVED
Western Michigan at Bowling Green -- From Saturday, February 6 to Wednesday, February 3 at 7 P.M. (ET)

NIU also announced their game with CMU on Saturday was postponed as well.

The league will need to start scheduling games Thursdays if they want to get some of these make ups in... Or get creative with shuffling some games (like moving the second Ohio CMU game up from 2/16 to this weekend to give some flexibility later). Its unrealistic to see all the postponements made up though.

Neither Dailey or Ali are traditional bigs. Dailey is listed as a guard. Ali was Akron's starting SF last season. The difference this time is if Akron is down 3 with the ball with only a handful of seconds left maybe coach K will be smart enough to tell his players to foul.

We did the following week vs. Kent. It almost blew up in our face as they hit a free throw, then we knocked the rebound out of bounds. They had an OB play with two easy layups which they botched.

Point being both were under 30% three point shooters. Ali was like 2 of 6 on the year or something. Keep it out of LCJ's hands is usually the gameplan. He was making real deep shots that day.

The 3 that sent it to OT there was a defender in the vicinity. The game winner I understand why they tried to force it out of LCJ hands, but there wasn't a defender within 10 feet of the shooter. I can't remember if it was Ali or Dailey who hit it. Both are about 32% 3p% shooters, but when they are that open it's probably more like a 45% chance shot.

Just saw Kent States Mike Nuga is done for the year with a knee injury. Here’s hoping for a Speedy recovery for the young man.

Toledo opens up a 2.5 game lead over Akron with a 15 point win tonight. Jackson outplayed Jackson although Jackson had a huge game too, but Jackson won while Jackson lost.
