    The Buchtelite's Adam Ferrise says the Zips' season might be over without Jeremiah Wood for four weeks.
    Wood tells the ABJ's Tom Gaffney he WILL return, and sooner than anyone thinks. Keith Dambrot says it's more difficult for a big man than a 160-pound guard. says Akron leads the all-time series: 17-6.
    The Zips are 18-point favorites to beat the Huskies tonight.
    The university cancelled all classes after 12:30 p.m. The game is still on.

Prediction: The crowd might be a little light with the weather conditions (blizzard), late start time (8 p.m.) and because it's on television (Fox Sports Net, featuring Michael Reghi). Those who attend should be fired up to rally around the Wood-less Zips, who should have little problem with Northern Illinois' jayvee offense and tenative defense. Watch for Nick Dials and Steve McNees to light up the Huskies all night.
