• The Rockets, who are a conference-best No. 46 nationally in the latest RPI rankings, are one game ahead of the Chippewas and two contests in front of Ball State (12-13, 9-3 MAC) for the best overall mark in the league.  The Midnight Blue & Gold enters Sunday’s MAC West Division showdown in the midst of an 11-game win streak, tied for the sixth-longest unbeaten stretch in school history. Toledo’s current win streak is also the second of its kind in 2012-13.
• The Chippewas enter Sunday’s contest one game back of Toledo for the MAC West and overall lead. The Rockets have won 11 straight since falling to CMU in the MAC opener, while the Chippewas are 10-2 in conference play. A victory over Toledo would put CMU in the drivers’ seat to earn the No. 1 seed in the MAC Tournament.  Sophomore Crystal Bradford continues to make a strong case to earn MAC Player of the Year honors as she currently leads all players with 11 double-doubles this season. Bradford has recorded three-straight and has accomplished the feat 22 times in her 57 career games.
• Central Michigan earned its first win at Savage Arena under head coach Sue Guevara and snapped an 11-game winning streak by the Rockets in the MAC opener. Sophomore Crystal Bradford scored a then career high 27 points and senior Jessica Schroll made her MAC debut by scoring 14 as the Chippewas shot 54.2 percent from the floor for a 73-66 win.
