What can the Mid-American Conference do to catch a break? Take the Bracket Buster, for instance. Whellistonian darling Akron
gets a sweet shot at Nevada (RPI No. 53), but Kent hosts Butler (98) and Ohio takes on Samford (79). How's that going to bring up the numbers, One Bid MAC?Tonight in Athens, the Bobcats and Flashes will get to work out some of their respect issues with each other. Ohio will unleash their pow-pow backcourt of Green
, and try to turn around a two-game losing skid. Kent has the most efficient defense in the conference (91.6 rating) and sits in the MAC East's first place with an 8-1 record. Keep an eye on senior guard Jay Youngblood
(15.0 ppg), who's quietly putting together a run at MAC player of the year. R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to he.
