Coaches might limit Jeremiah Wood's playing time tonight because of a knee sprain, the ABJ's Tom Gaffney reports.
Gaffney goes on to assess the problems the team has faced the past two games.
I think it's time to see more Darryl Roberts and Brett McKnight. McKnight, in particular, could become a bigger contributor with more playing time. Roberts could shore up the point guard position while Steve McNees and Nick Dials struggle.
Despite Akron's recent problems, the Zips are 15.5-point favorites.
Prediction -- Nate Linhart should limit Tyrone Kent's production. Akron can wear out Toledo's six-man rotation by running the break. Look for the Zips to break out of this mini-slump by curb-stomping the hapless Rockets. Without any size, Toledo's front line also will be in trouble if Wood does play.
Akron 76, Toledo 55
I plan to liveblog from the game if you aren't attending and have a computer handy.
