Saturday's game

By mrasor Published: February 23, 2006

Men's basketball


When I go to games, I've always tried to stay away from the Akron student section. This is mostly because I sometimes write my column about the team for the school paper. It's more professional that way.


This Saturday will be different. I am moving to the AK-Rowdies for one day only. I'm doing this for two reasons...


  1. I'm writing about the AK-Rowdies for my Tuesday column.

  2. I want to watch up close as the crowd intimidates OU's overrated players and player-stealing coaches.

As I've said before, I dislike Ohio more than any MAC team. They have all the annoying cockiness of Ohio State with none of the talent or tradition.


Swimming and diving


The Zips started slowly in the MAC Championship at Ocasek Natatorium today. They are in seventh out of eight teams.


Rifle


Akron will compete in the Western Intercollegiate Rifle Championship this weekend. The Zips will need almost a miraculous showing to boost their average into the nation's top eight. Only eight teams go to the NCAA Championships in Colorado Springs, Colo.


Women's soccer


Coach Catherine Byrne looks to have really improved her team by signing eight players. I'll just link you to the press release. The recruits' credentials show the program is heading in the right direction.


Baseball


Akron (1-1) will play at Morehead State (0-2) for three games this weekend. Honestly, it's hard for me to care that much this early in the season. Check back once MAC season starts.
