The Rockets and Eagles meet in the first round of the MAC Tournament with the winner getting a date with the 1 seed Akron on Thursday.
This is quite the matchup as both teams matchup well with Akron, but have to worry about getting through here first as they are nearly identical teams.
Eastern Michigan too both meetings that were played extremely close and both were played late in the season, meaning the Rockets are very familiar with what mistakes were made.
The Rockets fell in 5 of their final 6 games, but the record doesn’t indicate how good this team is.
Toledo was in every one of those losses, which included 2 to EMU. The Rockets fell to CMU by 8 and 2, fell to EMU by 6 and 4, and by 6 at WMU.
The Rockets remain one of the better offenses in the MAC as they averaged 78.1 points per game on the season. They ranked 20th in the nation with 16.6 assists per game. This team loves to move the ball and work the inside-out game.
In the paint, C Nathan Boothe is the go to man. Boothe has averaged 19.4 points per game to go along with 8.9 rebounds. He turned in a 16 point performance and a 26 points, 8 rebound, 5 assists performance against the Eagles.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
Eastern Michigan finished the opposite way this season.
EMU won 4 of their last 5 games, which included the two wins over Toledo, along with wins over Northern Illinois and Western Michigan. The Eagles used their high scoring offense as they scored in the 70s in 3 wins and put up 91 in the other win.
However, it was their defense that let them down in the loss. In fact, their defense has let them down all season long. EMU allows 78.4 points per game and allowed Ball State to score 115 points in the lone loss down the stretch of the season.
You can expect a battle down low as the Eagles have their own star center in James Thompson IV. The Eagles C had 15.0 points per game to go along with 10.5 rebounds. Thompson IV finished with 12 points and 8 rebounds in the season finale against Toledo.
