MAC Power Rankings and Weekly Awards

WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS
Akron Games are getting closer and the Zips are showing some chinks in the armor. They are still the team to beat but it is going to be interesting in Cleveland with Big Dog and his ability to play back to back to back.

Buffalo Caruthers is finally giving some good point guard play. They are looking like the team again that won the MAC last season. There is a ton of fire power here.

Ohio There is nice depth here and Carter has looked really good as a freshman. But when the teams are trimmed to four, do they have the star power to win it? I see them being a player short in that department.

Ball State I expect this team to win out, or at worst drop only one as they push towards a top four seed. However they get the two hottest teams out west both on the road. They will have to win one of these to win the west.

Toledo Three of their final four are at home including one against Ball State. They are in a great position to take the title.

Western Michigan They are on fire. The schedule is a bit more difficult than Toledo but they get both the Cardinals and Rockets. With the way they are finally playing, don't count them out. What a turnaround to the season.

Kent State I wouldn't want to be the coaching staff here. Can they figure out how to consistently get them to be the team who beat Akron than the team who lost to Bowling Green. They haven't found the magic sauce yet.

Central Michigan It's a shame they can't get anything more than Keene and Rayson. They will need to figure out how to slow someone down to not waste their dynamic duo's efforts.

Northern Illinois The season looks only to get worse for the disappointing Huskies. Three of the final four are on the road and the home game is against a hot Broncos squad.

Bowling Green The end of the season is tough but they can potetially go 2-2. They own wins over Miami and Kent already. Not quite the development I expected from this team this season but there is definitely more depth heading down the stretch.

Eastern Michigan A team who played an early easy schedule and was overrated, then came into season and looked the part. Now they are crashing. They are way too talented to have lost six in a row and 8 of 9.

Miami The schedule to end the season is brutal. The freshmen are giving hope for the future but after six straight losing seasons the fans don't want to hear about that anymore.
