Central Michigan's Joe Ostman has been named the Mid-American Conference West Division Defensive Player of the Week.

With each new season, a distinctive identity or fitting watchword used to describe a team naturally emerges. As practice is officially underway for the 2017-18 season for the Central Michigan men's basketball team, depth appears to be the hallmark of this squad. Perhaps the most ever featured by a Keno Davis-led team since he took the helm of the program in 2012.

Central Michigan baseball coach Steve Jaksa announced that six players have committed to play for the Chippewas, bringing to 11 the number of signees in Jaksa's class of 2017.

The Central Michigan football team will head to Florida in 2019 to take on five-time national champion Miami.

The game, finalized earlier this week, will mark the first time the Chippewas have faced the Miami Hurricanes.

Central Michigan's Luke Meyer has been selected to participate in the Reach USA Friendship Tour of the Far East.

Meyer, a 6-foot-10 ½ forward, will join nine other players from around the country on the tour, during which the American squad will play eight games over a two-week period against various professional teams in Asia.
