It will be hard to get basketball pundits away from thinking Ohio is the MAC's elite team, as evidenced by VanDelaySports.com's MAC power rankings. Ohio is first. Buffalo, the second place team in the poll, has had a cupcake schedule. Turner Battle and Mark Bortz are gone. The Bulls' bench is paper thin. Soon, the league will find out that Buffalo is very mediocre.
Midway through the game, Akron is leading Western Michigan by a handful. A win here would be huge toward Keith Dambrot's goal of an above-.500 record on the road in the MAC.
Ha! And I just checked on the Buffalo-Toledo score. Toledo is nearly doubling Buffalo, 46-24.
