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.

The 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.
In the women’s tournament Eastern Michigan lost twice earlier in the season to Toledo. In the semi-final, the EMU Ladies used a full-court press to force Toledo into 22 turnovers and pull off the upset, 61-55.

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.

Bowling 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.

EMU and Bowling Green will square off for the championship. The game will be televised on SportsTime Ohio and Comcast Michigan.
