Akron (13-3, 3-0 MAC) at Miami (8-8, 1-2 MAC). 3:30 EST Millett Hall Miami. The Zips are the second highest rated MAC team at 91 (behind Ohio at 89) in Kenpom.com and the Redhawks the lowest (by a wide margin 50 spots lower than BGSU as the next lowest) at 282, so the Zips should be able to handle this one but strange things have happened at Millett recently. Maybe the MAC is a little better this year but the Zips should win this to go 4-0 heading into the Ohio showdown. Incidentally the Youngstown (8-9, #284) loss is looking even worse now but the Marshall (11-6, #97 and leading Conference USA) win is looking even better. I always thought the Dr. Z Three for Thursday football quizzes were fun so maybe we should start them for basketball.
Zips are an early two point favorite according to bet online. Game on ESPN3. Kaleb Carter and Brandon Hickey of Hustlebelt preview the game here. "Kaleb: Everything is weird Brandon. Every single thing. But goodness it's why I love this conference right now. Akron seems to me to be best set up for the last few weeks of the season and for a MAC tourney title run. And you sure are right, Ohio is CONFUSING. And I'd agree with you, it was the best win Ohio has had this season. I think this is an Ohio team that has immense talent on offense but ultimately is a slightly better than middle of the pack MAC squad. They're not going to go and win five straight games in MAC play. It's just not going to happen."
