No bids being given out tonight, but we have a decent quarterfinal matchup in the Mid-American. It's actually a semifinal rematch from last year, the trial-by-fire, come-from-behind upset that sent the No. 7-seeded Bobcats on to the title game with brimming confidence. Miami has been the under-the-radar team of the MAC East, losing only four league games, which was just one too many for that tough division. They love to drag you into a slow-tempo, grind it out game, but make their shots (46.0% FG, third-best in the MAC) and convert on their freebie chances (74.1%, 33rd-best in the country). Ohio, on the other hand, is a big question mark. They're still breaking in a new point guard (Tony Chatman
, 4.0 ppg) after the midseason defection of Jeremy Fears
. But they destroyed Central Michigan
in the first round on their way to Cleveland, and have the championship experience to prime themselves for another deep run.
