MAC Honors Dispensed

So, with the MAC tournament starting tonight, the MAC has announced its All-MAC teams, as well as all-freshman and all-defense.  There's no huge surprise that BG is not widely represented...Spencer Parker received honorable mention honors.  Note that these awards are voted on by the 12 coaches.

Honestly, I think they are hard to argue with.  You certainly could have put Thompson onto the first team but I don't know who you'd take off.  Boothe, Campbell and Hall are givens...Johnson really burst onto the scene. I guess he might take Fowler's spot, which leaves you with all front-court guys on the first team.  He was 10th in scoring and first in FG%.

I think Parker is in the right place,

All-MAC First Team
Isaiah Johnson, C, Akron
Chris Fowler, G, Central Michigan
Jimmy Hall, F, Kent State
Antonio Campbell, C, Ohio
Nathan Boothe, F/C, Toledo

All-MAC Second Team
