Where: They will open play against Syracuse in Buffalo on Thursday.
Why: Western Michigan posted a 14-4 record in the MAC, finishing tied for first place in the West with Toledo. The Broncos received the league’s auto-bid after knocking off the Rockets in the tournament title game.
Ceiling: WMU has won 14 of its past 16 games, so they’re playing well at the right time. They don’t have many notable non-conference victories to boast, but they’re still a dangerous matchup. Senior guard David Brown could be a matchup problem for opponents.
