2013-14 GLIAC Men’s Basketball Preview

By Brian Lester, Special Writer for the GLIAC

BAY CITY, Mich. – For the second consecutive season, the University of Findlay won the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament title on the road, and for the first time since the 2008-09 season, three teams from the conference made the NCAA tournament as the Oilers, Michigan Tech and Wayne State all earned spot in the dance.

The league should be just as strong this season and every night will be a grind, especially for teams playing on the road. UF and Hillsdale will likely duke it out for the South Division title, but Walsh and Malone certainly can't be counted out. Those two teams enjoyed good first seasons in the conference and both are talented enough to win a division crown.
