Who is Tiffin?

Men's basketball


Maybe I'll hire a freelancer to blog about the results because, in all honesty, I'm not going to miss the Browns-Steelers game to see the Zips run up the score on a Division II team.


Anyhow, Tiffin is a Division II school in Northwest Ohio. They bring back three all-conference selections. Guard Hernandez Skiver was last year's leading scorer at 15 points per game. Center Ryan Pessell added scoring (14.4) and rebounding (5.5). Forward Ryan Frasier is a defensive specialist.


Tiffin alum Rodney Martin is in his first year. He plans to improve on the Dragons' 15-12 record from last year by limiting turnovers and improving defense. Tiffin was 7-11 within the American Mideast South Division. Martin was an assistant at Norfolk State.


This season, Tiffin is 0-2, suffering blowout losses at Central State and Southern Indiana. The Dragons' main problem has been turnovers. They have accumulated 51 screw-ups and only 20 assists.


Expect another blowout tomorrow. Unless the Steelers knock Charlie Frye out of the game earlier than expected, I won't see any of it.


Women's basketball


It appears Akron has something special in freshman point guard Sarah Tokodi.


She scored 24 points in Akron's 88-77 loss at Florida Atlantic.


The Zips trailed 18-8 early, but came back to take a 32-30 lead. FAU took over from there.


Niki McCoy (18 points) and Jessie Crooks (20 points, eight rebounds) also had big games.
