Akron Zips vs. Bluffton Beavers
Time: 7 p.m.
Where: Rhodes Arena
TV/Radio/Internet: SportsRadio 1350 AM (WARF) in Akron (flagship), for free at SportsRadio1350.com and on iHeartRadio. Steve French (play-byplay) and Joe Dunn (analyst) will have the call beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Notes: With starting center Zeke Marshall and two guard Brian Walsh gone, plenty of questions surround the Zips. Most notably who will fill those slots. The smart money is on Pat Forsythe to take that starting center job, but he was pushed in pre-season training by freshman Isaiah Johnson. As for two guard? Who slips in there? Point guard? Does Betancourt or Evans start. How does a year off affect Quincy Diggs?. What else is at stake? What will Dambrot’s rotation look like. And how do freshmen B.J. Gladden, Kwan Cheatham and Aaron Jackson fit into things the grand scheme.
