Toledo (2-12, 0-0) @ Northern Illinois (4-8, 0-0) Preview/Gamethread

New, 1 comment

Conference play starts off today in the brutal MAC conference. What, you say? Actually the MAC West in particular isn't having the greatest season. At 4-8, we have the second best overall record in the West behind the 5-7 Ball St Cardinals.

We don't play any defense and neither does the Rockets so this should be an entertaining one to say the least. As long as we force enough turnovers, we should be able to beat Toledo as they are 338th in turnover %. Both teams are towards the bottom in the nation when it comes to free throw % (337th and 330th respectively), so lets hope this game doesn't come down to the line. Toledo tried to run with URI recently and should do the same with us once we push the tempo offensively.
