The Buffalo Bulls meet the Eastern Michigan Eagles in a MAC postseason bout on Thursday.
Buffalo might be the come back story of 2013-14 in the MAC where they lost most significant games a year ago but have gone a 360 and are one game away fro 20 wins. The Bulls finished the conference slate at 13-5 which was one game behind Toledo and Western Michigan for first. UB consistently scored around 74 points and allowed 67 but appeared capable of even more at the defensive end which would definitely boost their postseason stock. Get som stops and let Javon McCrea (19 ppg, 9.8 rpg) get as many touches as possible.

Eastern Michigan has had a nice turnaround from a year ago with 21 wins after a big come from behind 53-48 decision over Northern Illinois in the MAC opening round. The Eagles were in trouble after 20 minutes where they were staring at an eleven point hole before allowing a scant 13 second half points. The bottom line for EMU was 29% shooting and nine more free throws was better then the Huskies 32% accuracy and 16 turnovers. Karrington Ward was top gun with 13 points and 12 rebounds while Glenn Bryant and JR Sims tossed in 12 and eleven points.
Buffalo will probably be around a three point favorite but I'm not really sure. These are two of the most improved teams in the conference so it should be a good one. Please check back when a line is released.
