MAC Basketball Open Thread: Saturday, Jan. 18

USA TODAY Sports

You could go outside and wade your way through the snow, or you could stay inside and watch basketball with us.

As parts of Mid-America are once again under a winter lockdown (thanks snow) there's not much for folks to do outside of their homes. Dun-duh-da-duh. MAC Basketball is here to save the day! With 11 MAC Hoops games on deck throughout the day, there's plenty to fill your day with.

It all kicks off with the men at 11 as Toledo and Akron square off in one of the biggest conference matchups we'll see this season. Here's the full slate of MAC men's games today:
