  1. Buffalo- the next Cincinnati

    Rough ending to the season for Buffalo. They lost by 20 to Texas Tech (and it wasn't even that close). The question is can they sustain this success? From 2009 to 2013, Akron won 3 of 5 MAC Tournament titles. Some might have thought that we were on our way to becoming a MAC power. We have not won a title since. There seems to be an ebb and flow to which school will have a 4-5 year run of success.

    Tied at 50 with under 15:00 to play.
  3. Other MAC Tournament Games

    Yep. Gave Buffalo another possession which turned into two free throws. Don't know how the refs missed that.
  4. MAC Hoops 18-19

    If BG loses, there will be no teams from the state of Ohio in the Semis.
  5. 2018- 2019 Season Post-mortem

    Great points, Clark. Coming off our struggles from last year, I had higher hopes coming in. Losing Hester and multiple centers probably helped to limit our steps forward. We improved from last season, but maybe not quite as much as I hoped. We were 8-10 and the 8th seed. I wanted/hoped each of those would have been better. That being said, it's too early to give up all hope. Let's see what Groce does with another recruiting class.

    TravelZoo has discounted tickets. I got lower bowl tickets (section 108) for $45 after fees (regular $54 plus fees). It supposedly comes with a $5 concession voucher - not sure how that will work. https://www.travelzoo.com/entertainment/chicago-midwest/-13-Men-s-2019-MAC-Basketball-Tournament-incl-Championship-2716273/?IsPresentationMode=1&utm_source=localdeal_us&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2731039_html_-_deal%3a2731039&utm_content=2731039&ec=0&dlinkId=2731039

    Northern up 44-28 at the half over the kittens.
  8. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    Lead now at 25!
  9. In other MAC games, Central beats Western by 14. At EMU, Ball State drills Eastern 61-43.
  10. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    Could have had better shot selection towards the end of the half, but I'll take a 15 point lead at the break.
  11. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    The MAC has instituted a bonus policy where the refs get extra $$$ per foul called.
  12. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    Off to a great start. Let's keep hitting our shots.
  13. MAC Hoops 18-19

    The All-MAC Teams were announced. Utomi, honorable mention, was the only Zip to make it. I heard Groce's comment pre-game about being the top defense in the conference, but no Zips made the all defensive team. https://getsomemaction.com/news/2019/3/11/mens-basketball-mac-announces-mens-all-mac-all-freshman-all-defensive-teams.aspx
  14. MAC Hoops 18-19

    I'd think they are in as well, but with the selection committee, you never know.
  15. MAC Tournament- Game 1- Miami

    Is it scarier that there is no body to be found?
