We had another exciting week of Mid American Conference Women’s Basketball. The top of the conference has pretty stayed the same but there has been some movement in the middle, making for an exciting run to the tournament this upcoming week.
Wednesday night would have seen a full slate of basketball had the Northern Illinois-Ohio and Eastern Michigan-Akron games not been cancelled due to COVID. As with the other cancellations, I do not know when these games will be made up or if they will be made up.
Here goes for the rest of the games from Wednesday night:
- The two teams at the top of the standings duked it out when the Bowling Green Falcons traveled to Mount Pleasant where they faced off against the Central Michigan Chippewas. The Falcons were able to overcome the Chippewas by a final (palindromic) score of 76-67. The Chippewas were led by Molly Davis with 18 points and the Falcons leading scorer was Lexi Fleming with 20.
- Ball State traveled to Buffalo where they fought the Bulls and were able to defeat them by a score of 76-63. The Cardinals were led by Oshlynn Brown with 15 points. Dyaisha Fair was able to net 22 points for the Bulls.
- Miami visited Toledo and were able to overcome a late game rally to defeat the Rockets by a score of 62-60. The leading Rocket was Quinesha Lockett with 19 points. The Redhawks were led by Kelly McLaughlin with 25 points. Kent State proved to be little trouble to Western Michigan as they traveled to Kalamazoo.
- The Broncos were able to defeat them with a score of 71-58. The Broncos were led by Reilly Jacobson with 27 points. The Golden Flashes were led by Nila Blackford and Lindsey Thall who each had 14 points. Nila Blackford had 12 rebounds to make it a double-double.
There were two games on Saturday.
- Buffalo was able to slip past Ball State by a final score of 83-76. The Bulls were led by Dyaisha Fair with 36 points. The Cardinals were led by Ohslynn Brown with 25.
- Kent State beat Northern Illinois 69-65. The Golden Flashes leader was Nila Blackford with 19 points. The Huskies were led by A’Jah Davis also with 19.
Sunday brought two games as well.
- The first week-ending game was the second stanza of Kent State at Northern Illinois, where the Golden Flashes beat the Huskies by a final score of 73-56. The Golden Flashes were led by Clare Kelly with 19 points and the Huskies were led by Chelby Koker with 15.
- Eastern Michigan also made it past Toledo by a score of 69-59. The Eagles were led by Jenna Annecchiarico with 17 points. The Rockets leader was Sophia Wiard with 16 points.
For this week’s schedule, the Bowling Green at Ohio game is already postponed. Wednesday’s games feature Western Michigan traveling to rival Eastern Michigan, while Buffalo plays Kent State. On Saturday, Buffalo plays Ohio and Central Michigan travels to Ypsilanti to face Eastern Michigan. Those are the games that may have some title implications.
