Toledo center dies at practice

Men's basketball

Toledo center Haris Charalambous died early in a conditioning session Monday morning.

The English-born player collapsed and EMS could not revive him.

In the second round of the MAC Tournament, Charalambous played four minutes in Toledo's win over Akron, pulling down one rebound. Earlier in the season, the 6-10 sophomore logged eight minutes, grabbing one rebound and scoring one point.

From the articles I have read, he was a well-liked person.

  • I heard a college basketball magazine ranked Akron at No. 20. Here is confirmation from the ABJ's Tom Gaffney.


As Buchtelite sports editor Dan Kadar looked over my midseason grades, he disputed a few and agreed with many.

I'm interested to see what you guys think. Post your grades below if you have time.

Men's soccer

The Zips should be well rested and ready for Wright State, whom they will play at 7:30 tonight at Lee Jackson Field.

Somehow, Akron is still No. 17 in the soccer polls.
