The Zips beat Northern Illinois 86-73 tonight at Rhodes Arena. The stars were Cedrick Middleton, Dru Joyce and Romeo Travis. Akron moves to 10-3 and 4-0 while the Huskies go to 8-5 and 3-2.
Meanwhile, the women continued to struggle in a home game against Miami, 65-54. Niki McCoy had 25 points but that couldn't overcome a 46-25 slaughter in rebounding. Akron is now 3-11 and 0-3 in the MAC.
More coming tomorrow after my head stops feeling like death.
