Other things I forgot to mention last night about the game...
Akron's Dru Joyce has been named Mid-American Conference Player of the Week for his performaces in the San Juan Shootout. I wasn't too impressed by his sophomore season, but I like what he's been doing this year. He was always a good passer. Now he's also a good shooter, knocking down 56.5 percent of his 3-point shots.
Akron plays next on New Year's Eve against Wright State. It should be a slaughter.
For all you blogoholics, I have a link for you. The aforementioned Hixenbaugh has landed a spot blogging for the Sporting News. He's a good writer and will have good stuff. Just make sure those hot scoops come to me first. :)
