With Friday night’s Kent State loss at Akron, the Northern Illinois University men’s basketball team has guaranteed itself a first-round home game in the 2014 Mid-American Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The Huskies will play Bowling Green at 7 p.m. Monday, March 10, at the NIU Convocation Center.

Monday’s first round game will mark the first time NIU has hosted a men’s basketball conference tournament game since 2003, when the Huskies hosted Buffalo in the MAC Tournament First Round. NIU defeated the Bulls, 81-64, and advanced to the MAC Tournament Semifinals.

Tickets for Monday’s game are $8 for general admission, $10 for reserved seating. For more information on NIU men’s basketball and Huskie athletics, visit
