1. Getting a second NCAA bid: did Ohio screw the MAC's only chance, or is there still hope?

No hope this year. Kent and Ohio will not run the rest of their schedules. In fact between the rate the east is cannibalizing itself and the new MAC tournament format Kent and Ohio could both have a tough road in Cleveland.

2. Parity or fluke? Ohio started conference play 1-2, while the directional Michigan schools, which combined for a 16-25 non-conference record, each went 2-1.

It has nothing to do with parity. Until we hit cross over play there is no good way to measure the east against the West. In the West you have Toledo and NIU which are almost a given.

When we hit cross division play expect the East to take at least three quarters of the games.

3. If you could steal one player from another MAC team to add to your school's team for the rest of this season only, who would you take?

Julian Mavunga, UB needs another threat from the outside and they are not a whole lot better than Mavunga

4. Miami's Julian Mavunga leads the MAC in both points per game and rebounds per game. Make the case for someone else as Player of the Year.

I have to lean towards Javon McCrea, mainly because he is pretty close to Mavunga in most categories but he it tops in shooting percentage.

5. Rank 'em.

  1. Akron
  2. Ohio
  3. Kent
  4. Bowling Green
  5. Ball State
  6. Buffalo
  7. EMU
  8. Miami
  9. WMU
  10. CMU
  11. Toledo
  12. NIU
