Far too similarities to the first game between these two in the follow-up here at the Convocation Center in Athens.
The Zips couldn’t sustain the momentum from the opening moments and the Bobcats ran rampant building an 18-point lead to smack UA out of their coma. No worries. It’s typical of the team. They poured things on to win their 19 consecutive and 13th in a row in the Mid-American Conference. Here’s why they won.
Turning point: Down 41-30 at the half, the Zips opened the second with a 19-4 run to get back into the game.
Player of the game: Three of them are listed above.
Quote of the game: We don’t want to be put in there we want to put ourselves in a position to get in there. We’ll just leave it up to the voters. The number next to our name doesn’t mean anything. It doesn’t mean people are going to come out and back down from us. It just means people are going to play hard to beat us and stop this winning streak. - Demetrius Treadwell
