Odds are the MAC is getting just one team into the Big Dance this season and it is not likely to be Bowling Green. Sorry Falcons fans.
Akron on the other hand is definitely a contender and probably the favourite at this point.
To have any shot at an at large bid they need to keep padding their win total. They have to have this one.
The Falcons are definitely a program that is stronger on the gridiron than the hardwood.
They may have a .500 record overall but they are just 5-10 in conference play including a home loss to the Zips earlier this month by 15. They did break a 6 game losing streak by beating Ohio in their last game though.
In that one the bench came alive with three double-digit scorers. Though it was helped by the fact that top scorer Spencer Parker was there.
The Falcons are a pretty good three-point shooting team overall so if they are going to be competitive expect to see a lot of long-range bombs. Parker and two other regulars make more than 41%.
BGSU is 6-6 SU and ATS on the road this season. Not bad for a team of this calibre.
The Zips are enjoying another good season but they have dropped three of their last four, all on the road. They are back home on Friday where they have not lost this season.
It is probably no coincidence that those losses have coincided with not having center Pat Forsythe, who may miss this one as well. He is not the most productive player but he is a presence.
Without him they haven’t been able to go with their twin towers approach featuring leading scorer Isaiah Johnson. Having those two behemoths is a huge advantage as they can really dominate on the glass.
The Zips may have the best backcourt in the league with Antino Jackson and Noah Robotham. Both can score and set the offense. It is hard to tell who is the true PG based on their numbers.
Akron is the best team in the MAC and that should be obvious in this one.
