Conyers' rebounds pay off at Ohio

By mrasor Published: January 13, 2010

Men's basketball
The most unlikely star in the conference led Akron to another win, this time on the road at Ohio.
Jimmy Conyers scored 16 and grabbed 14 rebounds in 36 minutes, giving the Zips a 67-62 win over the Bobcats.
Ohio won or tied almost every statistic except offensive rebounds, where the Zips led 17-8. Those 11 extra possessions were the difference in the game, however. Conyers was responsible for six of the offensive boards.
The Zips' road trip continues Sunday at 2 against Buffalo, who plays at Bowling Green tomorrow night. If the Bulls win, it will be a matchup of the only unbeaten teams in the MAC East.
Women's basketball
The Zips beat Kent State tonight at Rhodes Arena, 62-55.
Kara Murphy scored 16 and Joline Tamboe grabbed 14 rebounds for Akron.
