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.

Oakland University is a mid-major Division I university located between Auburn Hills and Rochester, Michigan between Detroit. It has 18,553 students.

The Golden Grizzlies play teams like Tennessee, Dayton, Cincinnati, Butler and other big-time schools to make money to fund their basketball program. They figure that they’ll lose but sometimes they pull an upset.

The school, a member of the Summit League, pulled a nice upset against Tennessee.

Keith Benson had 26 points and 10 rebounds as Oakland beat the seventh-ranked Volunteers 89-82, three days after losing to Michigan State by a point. The Spartans were ranked in the top 10 as well.

The loss was only the second time that Tennessee, now 7-1, has lost on their home court to a non-conference team in Bruce Pearl’s six seasons.

The Volunteers led 76-68 with 7:18 to play in the game. But the physical play inside by the Vols drew several fouls down the stretch as the Golden Grizzlies used to their advantage to get back in the game. They had a 13-0 run of mostly from free throw shooting to take an 81-76 lead that it never lost.

Tennessee missed four free throws and several three-point attempts down the stretch.

Oakland is now 6-5 on the season.
