Akron used solid defense and spread the scoring to win 63-48 over Niagara.
Romeo Travis and Nick Dials scored 13 apiece, but the real work was done on the other end of the floor as the Purple Eagles made only four of 17 3-point attempts. What's funny is that performance actually lifted their percentage from long range.
I'll have more on the game tomorrow.
I have to make an apology to all Zips fans.
I committed an error detrimental to the football program.
After Kent State's win over Akron, I said the game story should go on the front page of the Buchtelite. I suggested the headline "Fear the Flashes." I regret that, in hindsight, because tonight I found out that KSU coach Doug Martin clipped out that paper and hung it in his office.
