mac tournament basketball 2017

Time for action at the Q. Today the Womens’ quarterfinals start and all games are on ESPN3.

12:00 - Eastern Michigan Eagles Vs. Central Michigan Chippewas

This is the battle of #1 vs #9. The Chips and Bulls have a shot at the at-large IF they don’t muck up the MAC tournament by losing in the first round.

2:30 - Ohio Bobcats Vs. Miami RedHawks

The Other game on that side of the Bracket. The winner here will play whoever prevails in the CMU vs EMU game.

5:00 - Buffalo Bulls Vs. Kent State Goleden Flashes

UB had their way with Kent twice this season but funny things happen in Cleveland. Like CMU, the Bulls can make a very solid case for an At large should they advance to the finals.

7:30 - Ball State Cardinals Vs. Western Michigan Broncos

UB get’s the winner of this game.

Ball State was the third best team in the conference but they are good enough to be getting mentioned as a “first four out” or “bubble team” by people who are setting up brackets. In MOST years Ball State would be the best or second best team going into cleveland

I would much rather face Western Michigan than a Ball State team that twice played CMU to their limits.
