Episode 144 – Buffalo and everyone else: MAC men's tournament preview with Jason Arkley

The Mid-American Conference men’s basketball quarterfinals tip off on Thursday at The Q, and all signs point to top-seeded Buffalo having its fourth NCAA tournament appearance in five years locked up regardless of what happens in Cleveland. Still, seven other schools arrive looking to pull an upset and give the conference two bids in the NCAAs for the first time in 20 years. Jason Arkley, Ohio University beat writer for the Athens Messenger, is in town and back on The Nail to preview this weekend’s games and players to watch.

Plus, he dives into the Bobcats' disappointing season that ultimately led to the contract of likable, but embattled head coach Saul Phillips not being renewed on Wednesday.
