MAC Tournament if today

Edit: Ok, WTF is up with the formatting? The screenshot at the bottom is what the seeds should look like.

We’re now past halfway in the conference season, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the current matchups:

  1. Akron vs.

  2. Kent

  3. BGSU vs.

  4. Ohio

  5. Toledo vs.

  6. WMU

  7. CMU vs.

  8. Miami

This honestly wouldn’t be a bad draw for us. Central wouldn’t be an easy out, but they don’t seem to be a typical 2 seed. We would also avoid Akron until the championship.

After 2/18. The only surprise over the weekend was Eastern beating BG.

  1. Akron 11-1
  2. Toledo 10-2
  3. Central 9-3
  4. BG 7-5
  5. OU 7-5
  6. Miami 6-6
  7. Kent 6-6
  8. Western 5-7
  9. Ball St. 4-8
  10. NIU 3-9
  11. Eastern 3-9
  12. Buffalo 1-11

Tuesday sets up to be an interesting day: Akron/Toledo, Central/BG, OU/Kent, Miami/Western, Ball St./NIU. Western has lost 6 in a row.

Defeat the paywall with “Control + P”

I know they’ve already beaten us, but I wouldn’t mind a matchup with Central in the 1st round. It really shows how bad the MAC is this year considering CMU is 9-3, and they have a NET Ranking of 239 and a 252 KenPom.

After 2/20. 5 games left. The race has tightened for #1 and #8.

  1. Akron 11-2
  2. Toledo 11-2

Akron holds the tiebreaker with their win over Central. Toledo lost to Central.

  1. Central 10-3
  2. OU 8-5
  3. BG 7-6
  4. Western 6-7
  5. Kent 6-7
  6. Miami 6-7
  7. Ball St. 5-8
  8. NIU 3-10
  9. Eastern 3-10
  10. Buffalo 2-11

So with another loss to Western, any tiebreaker involving them would be bad. However, a 3 team tie with Western and Ball St. would get us in. If Ball St. beats Western again, we’re all 2-2 head-to-head, but we went 1-0 against Akron. If Western beats Ball St., it would go Western, Miami, Ball St.

But it still holds that 9-9 gets you to Cleveland, 8-10 gives you a chance, 7-11 would probably leave you on the outside looking in.

After 2/24. 4 games left.

  1. Akron 12-2
  2. Toledo 11-3
  3. Central 10-4
  4. OU 9-5
  5. BG 8-6
  6. Western 7-7
  7. Miami 7-7
  8. Kent 6-8
  9. Ball St. 5-9
  10. Eastern 4-10
  11. NIU 3-11
  12. Buffalo 2-12

1 more win probably gets us to Cleveland, 2 wins do it for sure.
