Whether you liked how the season concluded or not, Akron fans must admit this team overachieved.
From being picked fourth in the division to winning a postseason game, it was a tumultuous season. There were injuries upon injuries. Many players, such as Nate Linhart, Cedrick Middleton and Steve McNees, experienced drastic ups and downs.
Heading into next year, the Zips will lose the league's most dominant post scorer, the league's most fiery leader and the league's hardest worker, as well as a situational shooter and athletic role player.
Next year's team will be very young. The roster will feature one senior and two juniors (assuming Jimmy Conyers and Darryl Roberts get their fourth year of eligibility).
