Akron is a 1.5-point underdog in tonight's MAC Championship.
It will be Keith Dambrot's sixth consecutive trip to the game. He has won two of the last three, after losing the first two.
The Bobcats beat Akron in the MAC Championship, in overtime, two years ago. Ohio went on to upset Georgetown in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
I'm sure there is no team that either Alex Abreu nor D.J. Cooper would rather beat than each other's to win the conference.
I'm looking forward to a raucous crowd and exciting up-and-down basketball. ESPN viewers will get a treat.
I will be liveblogging from The Q. If you're at the game, pull out your smartphones and pull up this blog. I realize we're both watching the same game, but I'm privy to certain facts on press row you won't get in the stands.
I'm calling this game for Akron. I think the newcomers Demetrius Treadwell and Nick Harney will put the Zips over the top.
