MAC Basketball Championships on Local TV
CLEVELAND -- All four of the men’s semi-final Mid-American Conference games were televised. Again, veteran basketball broadcaster and Detroit native, Michael Reghi called the action. From courtside he said, “I love it. I usually lose my voice and it is a very long day but these teams are competitive. One of the teams always gets hot and that makes it exciting. It is wide open this year,” he added.
MAC games were on an assortment of networks simultaneously.
These included SportsTime Ohio, Comcast Michigan, ESPN Full
Court and ESPN3.com. Akron, Western Michigan, Kent State and
Ball State all have a spirited chance for post season play.
The MAC Tournament winner at Quicken Loans Arena gets an automatic
berth in the NCAA Tournament. It will be Kent State against
rival Akron in the men’s final game.
The Lady Eagles improve to 22-11 after taking down the MAC regular season champion and top seeded Rockets. Toledo may still get an NCAA or NIT bid at 23-8.
Cassie Schrock netted a team-high 20 points for the Eagles, and made eight free throws. Paige Redditt notched her fourth double-double of the season, scoring 18, while snagging 11 rebounds for EMU. Schrock has now played in a record 122 games in her EMU career.
Green (27-4) will be in their third straight MAC women’s
championship after getting by Central Michigan, 80-72. The senior
duo of Tracy Pontius and Lauren Prochaska had 18 and 16 respectively
with Prochaska hitting 11 of 12 free throws.
