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.

The Akron Zips ended their 30-game road losing streak by beating the Miami RedHawks on Saturday, 24-17.

They also ended another losing streak of 28 straight losses to Football Subdivision teams.

Akron’s Jawon Chrisholm rushed for 86 yards and three touchdowns to fuel the win.

The Zips took control in the second half by pulling ahead 24-7.

Akron had not won on the road since a 45-35 win against Eastern Michigan on October 18, 2008. They also had not won at Miami since October 21, 1939. The Zips last beat an FBS team on November 28, 2010, against the Buffalo Bulls.

The Zips are now 2-6, 1-3 in the Mid-American Conference.

The Miami RedHawks are 0-7, 0-3 with their only bright spot being QB Austin Boucher who completed 23 of 34 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns.

The University of Buffalo recently fired head basketball coach Reggie Witherspoon.

He was the first African American named head coach of a varsity sports team in any Western New York suburban school district.

His 14th season at the school ended with a loss in the Mid-American Conference tournament.

The Bulls finished the season with a 14-20 record, which ended a run of four straight winning seasons.

Witherspoon had a record of 198-228 at Buffalo and is tied for second on the school’s career wins list.

His best records at Buffalo included:

23-10 in 2004-05, 21-12 in 2008-09, 20-13 in 2010-11 and 19-9 in 2011-12.

When he arrived at Buffalo, the basketball program was one of the worst in the country on the NCAA Division I level.

Miami Redhawks honors former basketball coach 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.

MiamiĀ  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.
