Your Akron Zips are now 2-4 in the conference, an unfamiliar sight, after losing their fourth game in five chances.
This loss came at Northern Illinois, where Huskies guard Xavier Silas showed off for the NBA scouts in attendance by dropping 39 on the Zips. Akron lost 83-74.
The free throw disparity was the other unusual statistic, with NIU getting 39 attempts, compared to Akron's 12.
The Zips will try to fight back toward .500 in the conference on Sunday at 6 p.m. when Central Michigan comes to town.
