MAC Power Rankings and Weekly Awards

Akron Will they have their swag heading into the tournament? Or has their confidence been shaken. Will Johnson be able to keep up. He looked tired against Kent. They are the favorite but not the overwhelming favorite they were a month ago.

Buffalo Heading into Cleveland they once again seem to clicking. There is a lot of firepower. If they get some defense and PG play they will challenge for a 3rd straight appearance.

Ohio Jason Carter gets better every game. The Bobcats starting unit is as good as anyones. If they get some quality bench play they have the pieces to win it all.

Western Michigan Having one of the best players in the league makes them dangerous. Having a second makes them contenders. If they youngsters can support Wilder and Haymond look out.

Kent State They are playing well enough defensively to stay in games. Hall makes the offense roll. Edwin is the heart of the team. I am not sure they have the supporting cast or consistency to win it all. But they can spoil someone's dreams.

Ball State Another team that seems to be just a bit short. They play good enough defense to compete in any game. They are going to need to be on fire from behind teh arc all week to win it in Cleveland.

Toledo The Rockets won't win it all but they have two elite players who are capable of beating anyone who comes in and has an off night. Now is the time for Taylor and Williams to showcase their talents.

Bowling Green The Falcons can use the experience to springboard them next year. they can stay loose and play hard and stir up some excitement like they did last season. But there is no chance them win the tournament.

Eastern Michigan The Eagles are a disappointment. But they have a lot of weapons. If Lee, Thompson, Mangum, Toney and Bond get hot they will make some teams work harder than they want. This is an example of good talent doesn't guarantee success.

Northern Illinois They may be able to steal one and get to Cleveland but thats about it. The guards simply let this team down all season. They simply need to play much differently this week than they have all season to make any noise.

Central Michigan They get KSU which is a good matchup for them. Keene and Rayson could have a field day from three. There is no depth and production outside of these two. Winning more than one game is too much to ask for these two.

Miami They will likely have trouble stopping the size and athleticism of Western. They are young and need to come out and stay loose. But in the end they simply haven't shown they have the ability to win this game.
