By winning 2-0 against Western Michigan, Akron clinched the MAC regular season title. It will play all its tournament games at home, which is really important based on what the players say they draw from the home crowd.

Should you cheer for rivals?

Basketball sneak peek

By mrasor Published: October 15, 2005

Sometimes I don't look at the restaurant bill on a date. Just put it on my card and I won't get too worked up. I don't know how much the Season Premier cost, with free food, loads of promotion and even a searchlight outside Rhodes Arena.
