The Northern Illinois softball team opened play at the MAC Tournament today against Miami (OH). in Akron, Ohio. The Huskies lost a heartbreaking 2-1 decision, but with the tournament format of double-elimination, the Huskies still have a shot. You can relive the game with the Huskie Gameday Blog. Also, you can view the bracket. Like we mentioned, the Huskies had won three-straight, which helped freshman Morgan Bittner to a MAC West Pitcher of the Week award last week. Hopefully, they can get back on the winning track tomorrow!
