Point guard play hurts Zips in another loss

The Zips need to get better production from their point guards, and now.

I'm not talking about scoring. It's the assist-to-turnover ratio that is killing Akron, particularly on the road.

Akron lost another away game Sunday, against hot-shooting Middle Tennessee State, which put up a 50.8 field goal percentage, compared to the Zips' 28.6 percent.

Akron's assist-to-turnover ratio is 0.8, which is eighth in the MAC. Keith Dambrot's teams have held the "defense-first" personality, but I'd contend that no matter how stout your defense is, you'll be unsuccessful if your turnovers outweigh assists.
