Baker's MAC Dozen: 2/23/11

12+1 teams, 12+1 links.

BOWLING GREEN FALCONS — The Prochaskan Assassin! Lauren Prochaska hit a 3-pointer in the final second of their women's basketball win at Akron. Oh yes, we will be getting into the fairer sex's version of basketball quite soon. [BGSUFalcons]

BUFFALO BULLS — Was UB's win over Milwaukee useless? I tend to disagree, because not only can it bump them up into a higher "consolation" tournament, but it's a great midterm exam. [Buffalo Sports Daily]

CENTRAL MICHIGAN CHIPPEWAS — Drilling down on the Chippewas' free throw calamity. They're worst in the MAC. Worth mentioning: Trey Zeigler's percentage is hovering around Ben Wallace's career average. [Road to Respect]

EASTERN MICHIGAN EAGLES — Oh fun, football coach Ron English did a live chat. Here's the transcript. [Freep]

KENT ST. GOLDEN FLASHES — So, yes, now they're the favorite to win the MAC again, but of all the projections, only one person says they get better than a 14-seed. [Bracket Matrix]

MIAMI (OHIO) REDHAWKS — Is Charlie Coles the MAC Coach of the Year? The team's in first place with basically six guys, so that's one argument. With obligatory sourface picture. [Cincinnati.com]

NORTHERN ILLINOIS HUSKIES — Good news! The Huskies may not need to worry about their PATs next year. [RABA]

OHIO BOBCATS — Now that's a car metaphor: "Ohio hopes to improve its efficiency enough to make the Toyota Prius look like a semi-truck." [The Post]

TEMPLE OWLS — After beating up on WMU, Notre Dame can't get enough of the MAC. They've scheduled a home-and-away-and-home-again series against the Owls, marking the first time the Irish will go to a MAC stadium. Of course, this is assuming Temple doesn't bolt for Conference USA by 2014. [CSN Philly]

TOLEDO ROCKETS — With no Reese Holliday, the Rockets are essentially conceding offensive rebounds. Among other things, such as "this season." [Blade]

WESTERN MICHIGAN BRONCOS — Hockey interjection! The Broncos haven't been to the NCAA tournament since 1996, and they're right three on the cusp of the top 16. [USCHO]

AKRON ZIPS — He was defensive coordinator at Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Nebraska! And now he has the same position at UA. Way to catch a falling star, Ianello. [Suburbanite]

BALL ST. CARDINALS — Old news, but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the Terry Lantz DUI. The new Ball State safeties coach blew a .15 last Sunday in Muncie.
