Lindy's Sports picks Eastern Michigan basketball team to repeat as MAC West champs
The Eastern Michigan men's basketball team won its first-ever Mid American Conference West Division title last season.
The people at Lindy's Sports don't think it will take as long for the Eagles to get No. 2 under their belts.
Eastern is tabbed to repeat as West Division champs in the Lindy's Sports College Basketball 2012-13 Preview, which is on stands now.
Lindy's staff writer Lindsey Willhite compiled the Mid-American Conference preview, which slots EMU as the predicted champion of the six-team West Division. The University of Akron was selected to win the MAC East championship.
Eastern junior forward Glenn Bryant was a preseason All-MAC second team selection. Bryan sat out last year after transferring from Arkansas. In two years at Arkansas he averaged 3.4 points and 2.7 rebounds.
Last season, Eastern went 14-18 and lost in the first-round of the MAC Tournament in coach Rob Murphy's first year.
