#MACtion goin’ up on a Tuesday.

NCAA Basketball: Western Michigan at UCLA Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Another Tuesday night, another great slate of #MACsketball as we have four games at the 7 p.m. time slot starting with the Western Michigan Broncos hosting the Akron Zips. The front-running Zips may have some problems at Kalamazoo, as their average margin of victory on the road in MAC play is four points. We also have the Bowling Green Falcons hitting the road to take on the Central Michigan Chippewas and Marcus Keene, who dropped 50 points in his last outing.

Next, we have a huge inter-divisional showdown as the Ohio Bobcats welcome the Toledo Rockets to the Convocation Center in what should be a classic as Ohio won its last game after losing Antonio Campbell for the season, while the Rockets have been playing good basketball all season long. The Buffalo Bulls tangle with the Miami RedHawks in Oxford as well, as the ‘Hawks seek to stop its five-game skid against the defending MAC champions.

Coming up at 8 p.m. CST, we’ve got another big game as the Kent State Golden Flashes head west to square off against the Northern Illinois Huskies. KSU is starting to show some signs of life after its win on Saturday, but winning at DeKalb will be a tall order as NIU is arguably the best team in the MAC West. We stay in the West for our nightcap at 9 p.m. with the Eastern Michigan Eagles playing host to the Ball State Cardinals. The game should be a very good one as the Cards is as solid a team as you will see in the MAC, while EMU can shoot the lights out of a building with Willie Magnum IV and Ray Lee.

Without further ado, let’s hop into the comments below and talk some shooty hoops!
