Poor Toledo. Was rooting for them. They play a fun style to watch. Unfortunately defense is not really their thing. Like. At all.

The weird thing is Id give them a better chance than Kent State for a first round upset.


Can somebody hit a pull up jumper for me?.....

Nah defense matters come tourney time. It's why Kent was always the favorite to win in Cleveland, and they're a better pick to get an upset in the Dance. For the same reason I'd even rank Akron #2 behind Kent before Toledo.

+1 & -1

Don't think Akron would be better than Toledo. While Zips have better defense they are just a two man team and a big program could defend that more easily than Toledo having three solid contributors and adequate support. Like OHIO, Zips were a solid big forward short of being at the top of the MAC.

Will Sincerely be rooting for the Flashes to make some noise!

Ben Vanderplas might of made the difference but he has a broken wrist anyhow.

I will probably take Kent to pull an early upset in my brackets.

Toledo? Not so much. Kent looked clearly more athletic.

Should Kent have been a 12 seed? Would Toledo have been (being regular season champ) a 12 if they had won?

What are the BA experts expecting vs the Hoosiers?

Indiana has arguably the best player in the country in Trayce Jackson-Davis. JHS has come on big lately. They beat Purdue twice. Indiana rarely takes a bad shot. The Hoosiers are a low-volume team in terms of attempts, but 10th in the nation in FG %.

Kent State is a bottom-20 team in the tournament in both rebound rate and assist-to-turnover. They commit a foul on over 27% of possessions, a bottom-50 rate in the nation.

Kent State's best chance: Do everything right. Don't turn the ball over. Don't foul. Get SC going fast. Get Indiana on the ropes early, force them in to bad shots. It's Indiana's game to lose, so Kent State will need to play mistake free basketball.

Think Kent State has a chance to ride some Cinderella wave early, but Indiana pulls away in the 2nd half and wins big.

Kent has to rely on that old Mike Woodson anti-magic.

I think, in a more sane and rationale universe that respects non-P5 schools, the MAC was a 2 big league this year. I know Toledo had no chance of being considered by the NCAA for an at-large, but I think they're every bit as good as many of the ones selected.

Vegas has Kent as only a 4 point underdog...
