Miami at Toledo Saturday at noon on ESPNU

Miami is 12-16 ( 6-11). Toledo is 22-6 (14-3). Toledo has beaten Miami 16 times in a row, almost wiping out our all time lead in the series. Toledo beat Miami 75-72 in Oxford in January. The Rockets are 11-1 at home this year and are tied with Ohio for first place and own the tiebreaker if it ends that way.

All Rocket starters have at least one more year of eligibility. Ryan Rollins is perhaps the leading candidate for MAC POY. The same 5 guys have started every game this season. UT has no real big guys starting and no little guys and tend to play position less basketball, looking for favorable matchups. Their starting lineup:

Ryan Rollins 6-4 S
JT Shumate 6-6 Soph 19/6
Sedric Millner 6-6 Jr
Raheem Moss 6-4 Fr
RayJ Dennis 6-2 Fr
JT Shumate 6-7 Jr

Miami has dropped to 8th in the MAC standings, which would still get us to Cleveland, but may need two wins to get there, or maybe just one if other teams keep losing.
