The BroncoBlitz.com staff invites you to join us at 8:00 p.m. for another edition of our "Sunday Night Blitz" live chat series.
The Bronco men's basketball team (19-11, 10-6) finished a successful regular season taking home the MAC West title after they were predicted to finish third. Senior Nate Hutcheson, redshirt junior Shayne Whittington, freshman forward Darius Paul, and redshirt junior guard David Brown are all strong candidates for MAC post-season awards.
WMU begins post-season play in the MAC tournament this Thursday in Cleveland where they'll likely face either Eastern Michigan or Bowling Green in the quarterfinals. We can also talk about recruiting as the WMU coaching staff has continued to work throughout the season on the 2013, 2014, and even 2015 recruiting classes.
The Western Michigan football coaching staff has been busy "Rowing the Boat" on the recruiting trail these past few weeks, as the 2014 class will likely be the most important and impactful recruiting class of P.J. Fleck's tenure at WMU. As promised, the Broncos have been sticking to the six-hour radius in Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio, and have continued WMU's strong presence in the state of Florida.
WMU also released their official 2013 schedule, which includes three Big Ten road games to Michigan State, Northwestern, and Iowa. The Broncos will host Nicholls, Kent State, Buffalo, Ball State, and Central Michigan.
The men's hockey team is waiting to see whether or not they'll host Alaska-Fairbanks or the Michigan Wolverines at Lawson in the CCHA quarterfinals round. The Broncos finished 19-9-8, good for third place in the CCHA regular season standings. They'll look to repeat as CCHA champions and get a favorable draw in the NCAA Frozen Four.
We'll begin our chat right at 8:00 p.m. -- feel free to submit questions early via Twitter with the hash tag #SundayNightBlitz.
