Prediction: Zips win at Duquesne

Duquesne relies on a lot of traps and presses to win.

Unfortunately, that strategy falters when 1) your players become weary and 2) the other team has decent ball handlers and decision makers.

Both of those will be true tonight at 7.

The Dukes give up a high shooting percentage, mostly because once you break a press or trap, you'll find easy buckets. The Zips will probably score 90. I don't see Duquesne breaking 80 against a regrouping Akron defense.

Even though Keith Dambrot will probably give extended minutes to John Rybak, Jimmy Conyers and Nick Goddard, Akron wins comfortably.

Prediction: Akron 90, Duquesne 77
