Tom Gaffney'sABJ preview talks about
Leon Williams' battle against
Jeremiah Wood and
Jerome Tillman -- the potential X-factor.
The Zips are eight-point
Prediction -- Akron has dominated Ohio at Rhodes Arena. With the refreshed Zips playing their best basketball and Ohio on an inconsistent streak, that shouldn't change. The Bobcats can keep it close by going to Williams more than usual. If their secondary players are taking too many shots, the Zips will win in a landslide.
If you're wondering about
Bubba Walther, he has no chance to break double figures against
Nate Linhart. Like Gaffney wrote, Tillman is another player whose huge game could give the Bobcats a chance.
Akron 82, Ohio 65
