MAC men’s basketball schedule released

August 19, 2011

1/7 @ Northern Illinois
1/11 Central Michigan
1/14 @ Ball State
1/18 Western Michigan
1/21 Toledo
1/24 @ Buffalo
1/28 Bowling Green
2/1 @ Miami
2/4 @ Akron
2/8 Kent State
2/11 Ohio
2/14 @ Central Michigan
2/22 Northern Illinois
2/25 Ball State
2/29 @ Western Michigan
3/3 @ Toledo

We’ll dig deeper into the schedule as basketball season approaches, but I have a few quick thoughts for now:

  • It’s the usual structure of one round of division games, then interdivision games, then the second round of division games. I do like this structure.
  • There are no long home stands or road trips: no more than two consecutive home or road games at any point.
  • Since the last two games are on the road, Senior Day will be Saturday, February 25.

What do you think about this schedule for EMU?

    Dear cmadler,
    What happened to the non-league schedule? The league shedule is always a home and away for our division, with as you said, the other division one game each. Not too much to get excited about. I do hope they can win more than nine games this year.

      EMU’s non-league schedule is always announced later, though parts of it can sometimes be pieced together as other teams announce their non-league schedules. Last year the men’s schedule was announced September 7 and the women’s schedule was announced September 29.

      I was a little surprised to see the conference scheduling unchanged this year. Given the changes to the tournament format — particularly that it now ignores the divisions — I thought they might have changed the schedule to ignore the divisions also and just do an unbalanced round-robin.

    Dear cmadler,
    I could go for that. My only priority, would be to play both Western and Central twice, then they could do whatever they want
