Sounds like Ohio is going to be missing player(s) tonight from COVID. Will be another week before everyone is back. Hard to know what to expect tonight without knowing who is out.
No byes this year as only 8 are advancing to the tournament. The only way there are byes is if they have less than 8 available to play.Toledo got pealed by Ball St and has them last game of the season. WMU gave Toledo a good game too and they're next.
Buffs play Ohio, Akron and Kent so they'll certainly have chance to state their case for a bye.
I didn’t realize how big of a gap there was between the 8th and 9th spots already. I’d be shocked if any of those bottom four teams could catch Ball State. 3-7 spots could shuffle quite a bit stillAs I recall, it will be win percentage. Tiebreaker is then head to head then win percentage against seeded teams.
I think they should just excise NIU and the Michigan directionals (permanently).
Complete opposite of the last two games for Ohio. Tons of turnovers and shot horribly behind the arc. I think (?) Akron is slightly ahead of Buffalo now for the #2 seed but I’m not sure....and with that the Bobcats get thumped. What a weird damn year.
Good call. You could make an argument for and against any of the eight winning the tournament.Pick one of the eight that you are positively positive could not win this tournament?
