Nearing the end


The men’s basketball team has just four Mid-American Conference games remaining in the regular season. The team hosts Ball State at 7 p.m. today.

The women’s team has five games left before the conference tournament.

Where does this leave the Chippewas? On the outside looking in, barring a tournament win by either team.

The men would be the No. 9 seed if the tournament started today, facing Toledo, while the women are fighting Akron and Toledo to avoid being the lowest seeded team.

As a whole, the conference probably will get only one bid to the men’s tournament, unless Kent State loses, the macreportonline says. The Golden Flashes are 21-5, but would still need a deep run in the MAC Tournament if they hope to earn an at-large bid.

Meanwhile, CMU coach Ernie Zeigler still is trying to settle on a rotation. The problem – defense. Zeigler said his team hasn’t defended well since its Jan. 26 win against Akron. We’ll find out if the rotation becomes more clear tonight against the Cardinals.


The wrestling team is up to No. 4 after Minnesota lost 20-17 to Wisconsin. However, the NCAA Championships are what counts, and the Chippewas are ranked as the No. 10 team team on tournament-strength by Intermat.

Central will get its best test within the MAC at 7 p.m. Friday at No. 20 Kent State. The Golden Flashes feature ranked wrestlers at 133, 141, 165, 184 and 285 pounds
