Toledo Rockets

The Toledo Rockets finished with a winning record a year ago but they played poorly down the stretch and were eliminated in the first round of the MAC Tournament.  The Rockets do return second-leading scorer Jonathan Williams who averaged 17.6 points per game a year ago but they will have to replace leading scorer Nathan Boothe who averaged 19.3 points, 9 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season. The Rockets will also have to replace Stuckey Mosley who averaged 10.2 points and 4 assists per game. It was a bit of a shock when Mosley transferred to James Madison.

The Rockets brought in junior college transfer Lucas Antunez and freshman Justin Roberts. Daniel Dzierzawski is another junior college transfer who could see playing time in the backcourt. Newcomers in the frontcourt are Luke Knapke who redshirted last season and Steve Taylor who averaged 5.9 points and 5 rebounds for Marquette two years ago.

2016-2017 Toledo Rockets Betting

The backcourt for Toledo should be just fine with Antunez, Sanford and Williams. The concern is the frontcourt as the Rockets are counting on Garber and Taylor to score. The two players should be fine in the rebounding department but it is hard to see them doing much in terms of scoring.  Toledo will need Taylor and Knapke to provide support upfront this season.

Toledo Rockets Picks

The Rockets are a team that should be right in the mix in the MAC this season. They have a top scorer in Williams and a lot of depth. The key will be how well the newcomers play. The frontcourt definitely doesn’t have a ton of experience but if the team can just get decent play they should be fine as they are looking to go with a three-guard lineup.

The Rockets probably don’t have enough to win the MAC this season but they should finish with a winning record and playing in a tournament like the CBI is definitely possible in 2016-2017 for this team.
