Eastern Michigan beat Miami of Ohio at home on Monday night, so that gave them the opportunity to play Bowling Green on Wednesday night. They beat Bowling Green which meant they got the chance to play Toledo. The MAC Tournament is set up in a way that rewards the higher ranked teams in the Conference. It is the main reason why the games that Eastern lost early in the MAC season were huge. Eastern had to claw its way to get to this point and this was Toledo's first game in the Tournament.
So Eastern would be playing its third game in 4 days and Toledo would be playing it's first.
Even though I'm not happy with the way the season ended, I was still proud of the Eagles. I just wish the momentum they built at the beginning of the season would carry into the MAC Season. It would have been nice to Mike Talley and Karrington Ward leave with a MAC Title. Oh well.
I think Eastern is in pretty good shape for next season though.
