Media poll picks Akron, Toledo to win Mid-American Conference divisions in Men’s Basketball

 

Media that regularly cover the Mid-American Conference have selected Akron and Toledo to win their respective divisions in the annual preseason poll.

The Ohio Bobcats were picked to finish second in the East. Their best player, Maurice Ndour was selected to the All-MAC East team. The Bobcats have a new head coach in Saul Phillips, who took North Dakota State to the NCAA Tournament last season as a member of the Summit League.

The Akron Zips received 17 first-place votes to win the East. They return four starters from the 21-13 team of a year ago.

Toledo, who just a few years ago was one of the worst teams in the MAC, has been picked to win the conference tournament and go to the NCAA Tournament. The Rockets received 18 first-place votes to win the West and returns four starters from last season where they won a school-record 27 games.

Miami Redhawks honors former basketball coach Charlie Coles

Charlie Coles

When Charlie Coles announced his retirement as head basketball coach at Miami University last March, most media members wondered if he could actually stay away from Millett Hall, home of the RedHawks.

Well, he has.

The 71-year-old Coles, who still resides in Oxford, Ohio, made his first appearance at a RedHawks game yesterday afternoon.

Miami  honored their long-time coach before the final regular-season home game against Kent State.

Coles retired after 16 seasons on the Miami bench with 263 wins. He is a 1965 graduate of the university.

Before settling in at Miami, Coles, who was always popular with media and fans of opposing Mid-American Conference schools, coached at Central Michigan for six years where he compiled a record of 355-308. While there, he coached Dan Majerle, who went to have an All-Star NBA career.

His 218 wins in MAC games are the most in conference history.

In a recent interview, Coles said that he spends his retirement helping coach his granddaughter Jazz’s sixth-grade AAU basketball team.
