Macomb Tournament Trivia:

The 19 points allowed in their opening round win over Illini Central last year is only 2nd best for the Bombers in tournament history. In the Bombers' 2010 first round, Macomb only gave up 18 points to Western.

Macomb has played in five of the last ten tournament title games and has won four of them. That is the hottest tournament streak since Peoria Bergen won four of five from 1969 to 1973.

Macomb ended a two-tournament trophy-less streak with a 5th place finish in 2013. The last time Macomb went two consecutive years without hardware was 1998 & 1997.

The Bombers are 25-8 (.758) in the tournament since 2005 - the best during that stretch among teams active each of those years.

In 2006, Matt Buren became the first person to earn back-to-back tournament MVP honors since Macomb's Tony Moore won the award three straight years (1971-73). Moore is the only player to achieve that feat.

An ankle injury brought Buren's tournament to an early end in 2007 ending a shot at earning a third-straight MVP.

As a sophomore, Buren was named the 2005 tournament MVP. He was the first sophomore to be named MVP since 1987 when another Bomber, Ty Margenthaler, did so.

Ty Margenthaler was a two-time MVP (1987 & 1989)

Other Bombers to be named MVP: Rocky Owens (1979), and Raam Jani (1994).

Buren set a tournament mark in 2006 for field goal percentage after converting on 32 of 44 (72.7%) of his attempts.
