Toledo lost their most promising player in international play. Edu out for season pretty much takes them down to 7 players with no proven outside shooter. And BG looks good.

long season ahead.

Ohio picked up a solid road win at St Bonny in Jeff Boals debut. Surprising upset considering youth of team. Hard to say how much credit Ohio deserves vs how good the Bonnie’s actually are/how much their poor shooting from outside played a role... still very encouraging start. Bobcats have some talent

Outside of Toledo, the other MAC schools that have played thus far have all won their openers

Edit: only Ohio, WMU (Mcnees) and Toledo played D1 schools

Toledo had the game won against Notre Dame. They led just about the entire way and frittered it away in the last 3 minutes. With 1.5 seconds to go, ND had an inbounds play down by 3 points. Unbelievably, Toledo left a guy wide open behind the arc, who swished it to take the game to OT.
Even then, UT had a one point lead and the ball; but a costly turnover and lack of offensive execution at the end cost them the victory.
All credit to ND. An abysmal effort late in the game by the Rockets to ruin what was an excellent performance -- but only for 38 minutes. Winners make those plays at the end.

Tonight BG will have a chance to upset a Cincinnati team tonight coming off a very underwhelming 1-point win against Illinois State Friday evening. Cincy will be short-handed as well missing 2 key graduate transfers who come off the bench.

Would it be fair to say Justin Turner is the early front runner for MAC POY?

It's fair to say it's early. With most of the points in the conference coming out of the guard spot, harder to measure the contributions of the big guys this early. Willie Jackson is averaging 12 RBs and voters love scrappy.

Right now, between Turner, Flowers and German I'd say but M Jackson and Preston have much higher assist numbers than either and are not far off in scoring or RBs. None of them have a significant win to put on their resume, some near misses. Pretty close still in my opinon.

Heckuva win for the Falcons, coming from 10 points behind with 3 minutes left to force OT, then outlast the Bearcats. This team is looking like a force in the MAC this year.
Alas, Justin Turner was injured and had to sit out half the game. It looks like he's gonna be out for awhile. :(
