MAC Championship Game
Our conference has done itself proud with an awesome game between Akron and Kent State. Overtime at 59 each! Akron wins a great game. However, a postgame near brawl puts a slight damper on it.

Wild, wild ending. Akron wins by 1. Kent to NIT.

Pretty darn well played game.

Isn't there a chance that Kent gets an at large NCAA bid? They have a pretty good record. The MAC gets two teams quite frequently, and now, with the tournament having expanded to 68, the chances seem higher, No?

RE: MAC Championship Game
For slightly deeper analysis, Kent State's RPI going into today was 70, with no good wins. You need to be top 40 as a mid-major or top 50ish with some name non-conference victories.

And by quite frequently do you mean twice in twenty years?

RE: MAC Championship Game
That was one of the best bb games I've seen all year! Two really excellent, tough teams. Saw the PAC10 Tourney Championship later on (*yawn*). Either Kent or Akron could have taken out both Arizona and Washington.

Mr. Whinny's rooting for the MAC teams in postseason play.
