I tell you what folks, it was a busy week in the MAC.

Women’s volleyball, tennis, swimming and diving, and gymnastics have all gotten their seasons started, and we are HERE for it!

In this week’s news segment A-block, the boys break down all of the sports mentioned above, as well as some exciting news for the Akron men’s soccer program, as former Zip David Egbo was selected 9th overall by Vancouver Whitecaps FC. Egbo’s selection adds to the already long list of former Zips playing professionally, as Coach Jared Embrick continues to find and develop top talent.

In the B block, Zach and Sam break down the week that was on the hardwood. On the men’s side of things, Bowling Green is officially in a free fall, as the Falcons have now lost 4 of their last 5. The most recent loss in that streak was a 96-91 defeat at Kent State on Wednesday night, as Kent State star Danny Pippen broke the 1,000 point mark for his career. Elsewhere in men’s hoops, Toledo continued it’s story book season, highlighted by JT Shumate’s career night against Miami on Tuesday.

On the women’s side of things, CeCe Hooks had a career week for Ohio, averaging 34 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 4 assists over two games. Both games were comeback victories for the Bobcats, thanks in no small part to Hooks’ efforts. To wrap up the show, the boys break down the games they’re most looking forward to in the weeks ahead.

As always, thanks for stopping by and listening folks. Listen below, or find us on your favorite podcast platform! Have a great weekend everybody!
