Toledo's Julius "Juice" Brown was named to this year's All-MAC First Team, marking the second consecutive season that the senior guard has been selected for the honor. Joining Brown on the 2014-15 First Team is Bowling Green's Richaun Holmes, Buffalo's Justin Moss, Central Michigan's Chris Fowler and Kent State's Jimmy Hall.
