Akron plays Austin Peay tonight at 8:30 in a return game for last year's BracketBuster spanking.
The Zips are just 2-2 away from Rhodes Arena this season. They Governors are 3-1 at home and 4-5 overall.
In last year's 74-57 win at Akron, four Zips scored double figures, including Jeremiah Wood, who had 14 points and 11 rebounds.
The Governors get killed on the boards and can't stop good interior offense. They have a six-man rotation that lacks height. The Zips should be able to bleed AP to death in the half-court game if they want.
Prediction: Akron 71, Austin Peay 64
It will be interesting to see if
Chris McKnight can build off his 17-point night versus North Carolina Central. The PD's
calls him a key to the Zips' success.
Austin Peay's coach
had some complimentary things to say about
The Governors are one-point
favorites. The over-under is 138.5.
Here's your mission: Listen to
Steve French and
Joe Dunn call the game, and repeatedly
vote for Zippy.
I should be back to blogging on regular basis. In case you were wondering, preparing for exams was insane. I met with my study group for about eight hours a day for two weeks straight. Then I studied by myself for about three hours per day. Fun stuff. But all that work made exams a little easier -- at least until I find out my grades.
