2013 MAC Tournament Predictions

Everybody MACtion in football but what about MACtion in hoops? Yeah, I didn't think so but all of that said, the 2013 MAC Tournament should be an interesting. The Akron Zips come in as the big favorite but with questions surrounding starting point guard Alex Abreu, who was arrested last week for possessing and trafficking marijuana and he pleaded not guilty on Friday, could they be prone for an upset?

1st Round - March 11
#8 Buffalo vs. #9 Central Michigan (7:00)
Pick: Central Michigan

#7 Eastern Michigan vs. #10 Northern Illinois (7:00)
Oh no, not this again.
Pick: Eastern Michigan

#6 Bowling Green vs. #11 Miami (7:00)
Pick: Bowling Green

2nd Round - March 13
#5 Ball State vs. #9 Central Michigan (STO, 6:30)
Pick: Central Michigan

#6 Bowling Green vs. #7 Eastern Michigan (STO, 9:00)
Pick: Bowling Green

Quarterfinals - March 14
#4 Kent State vs. #9 Central Michigan (STO, 6:30)
Pick: Kent State

#3 Western Michigan vs. #6 Bowling Green (STO, 9:00)
Pick: Bowling Green

Semifinals - March 15
#1 Akron vs. #4 Kent State (STO, 6:30)
The Golden Flashes did just upset Akron without Abreu but I think the Zips will be able to get by them here.
Pick: Akron

#2 Ohio vs. #6 Bowling Green (STO, 9:00)
Pick: Ohio

Final - March 16
#1 Akron vs. #2 Ohio (ESPN2, 6:30)
While I do not think the Abreu situation will prevent the Zips from getting to the final, I do think it will hold them back against an Ohio club that is very good in their own right.
Pick: Ohio
