2014-2015 Mid-American Basketball Schedule
If you take a look at the schedule, it will be pretty obvious why there
is so much fanfare surrounding this conference, as it will be powerhouse versus powerhouse throughout the regular season as
the Mid-American Conference gets underway. Come out and see all of the rim-rocking jams, smooth and clutch three-pointers,
and all of the nail-biting moments that will have you glued to the edge of your seat this season. Western Michigan will be
looking to bring down yet another conference title, but it won't be easy as the rest of the teams hope to pile up the wins
and shoot their way up the MAC.
There's nothing like being there in the middle of a tight game that could go either
way, and that's what you're sure to get more likely than not throughout another intense regular season of action. The MAC
is packed with tough matchups, great fan bases and superstar-level players on a regular basis, providing more than enough
incentive to head out and see the action up close and personal this season. And when the game can still go either way and
two amazing teams are trading baskets, it won't be hard to see why it simply doesn't get any better than this if you love
big boy college basketball.

College Basketball Experience
These are some of the best amateur athletes in the entire world,
though that's something that you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate. Even though the pros are great too, there is
something special about watching the action when it's just school pride on the line, and that definitely holds true for a
group of powerhouse programs like you'll find in the MAC. College basketball is a game that springs to a completely different
level when you get a chance to see it first-hand, but you're not going to figure that out if you plan on following the action
through the highlights on that fancy smart phone.
Mid-American Basketball History
This is a conference
that has had more than a few great programs come together to reach their potential, helping to make for an exciting tradition
that has helped to make the MAC one of the most interesting and wide open conferences year in and year out. Overall, it's
Ball State that has become the gold standard thanks to winning three titles each in the 80s and 90s, as well as adding another
one in 2000 to give them the most overall tournament wins. Ohio and Kent State haven't exactly been slouches either, as each
has won at least five different titles over the years and always seem to be a threat to win it all. As all of the rest of
the tough teams look to make their move in the MAC, this season is sure to have more than its fair share of excitement that
will be the talk of campuses around the country.

in which anything can happens, and the real victor ends up being the fans from one season to the next.
