Insider ranks MAC recruiting

By mrasor Published: May 7, 2006

Men's basketball


Ray Mernagh, author of Hoopfactor.com, analyzed the MAC recruiting classes for Macreportonline.com.


In it, he gives glowing grades for Akron and Kent State. Miami and Toledo are solid. Everyone else seems to be reaching on many scholarships they dealt out.


Mernagh knows a ton about MAC basketball. I strongly recommend that you read this column he wrote, as well as his site on a daily basis.


Softball


Akron lost its regular season finale this afternoon to Eastern Michigan, 4-0.


Freshman Julie Boyes (12-8) took the loss, giving up eight hits and all four runs.


The No. 6-seed Zips (29-26, 13-9 MAC) will open the MAC Tournament Wednesday at 11 a.m. against No. 3-seed Bowling Green (35-21, 16-6 MAC).


In early April, Akron split a two-game series with the Falcons, winning 3-1 and losing 3-0.


This will be Akron's first tournament appearance since 2002, ending a four-year drought in coach Julie Wright's first season.


Women's basketball


I hope to update everyone on the women's basketball coaching search tomorrow.
