CMU men picked to win MAC West

The Mid-American Conference preseason coaches poll was released Thursday, and the Chippewas are expected to repeat as the West Division champs.

CMU went 7-9 in the conference last season despite a 7-9 record. It was a porous showing from the division, which arguably was the worst in D-I basketball. But with the return of both Chris Kellermann and Marko Spica, the Chippewas are a solid pick to at least have a winning record this season.
