Gameday news and notes

Men's basketball
Akron and Miami tip off tonight at 7 at Rhodes Arena.

    The Zips are three or 3.5-point favorites. The over-under is 117. I would take the Zips and the under.
    Miami leads the all-time series, 23-16.
    Tom Gaffney reviewed the crossover games and previewed tonight's game.
    Elton Alexander explained how both teams have tournament experience.
    If you didn't get a good look of the Zips' new shoes, here is a link. It shows LeBron James sporting them on All-Star Saturday. (Thanks to Mike Curry for posting that link in my comments section.)
    I will liveblog tonight, unless my car, computer or something else says otherwise.

Gaffney also confirmed the hires of Walt Harris and Shane Montgomery through university sources.
He notes that Harris had observed Akron practices the past two years as a consultant. expects this new "brain trust" to boost Chris Jacquemain's passing stats.
