Confusion clears; Akron will play Toledo Tuesday

Men's basketball
As the No. 5 seed, Akron will play Toledo in the first round of the MAC Tournament on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Here are the final standings...
1) Bowling Green -- 11-5 2) Ball State -- 7-9 3) Buffalo -- 11-5 4) Miami -- 10-6 5) Akron -- 10-6 6) Kent State -- 10-6 7) Central Michigan -- 7-9 8 ) Western Michigan-- 7-9 9) Ohio -- 7-9 10) Eastern Michigan -- 6-10 11) Northern Illinois -- 5-11 12) Toledo -- 5-11
If Akron wins Tuesday, the Zips will play Miami on Thursday at 9:30 p.m. The road to the championship theoretically would go through Bowling Green, and then Ball State/Buffalo.
Here are the other first-round matchups...
No. 5 Akron vs. No. 12 Toledo (winner plays Miami) No. 6 Kent State vs. No. 11 Northern Illinois (winner plays Buffalo) No. 7 CMU vs. No. 10 EMU (winner plays Ball State) No. 8 WMU vs. No. 9 Ohio (winner plays Bowling Green)
I quickly went over the scenarios an hour ago and completely messed it up. I apologize if you relied on that. Anyhow, I will break down the Toledo game on Monday.
