Zips face difficult test at Cleveland State

By mrasor Published: December 8, 2011

Men's basketball

With due respect given to West Virginia and Mississippi State, Cleveland State will be Akron's biggest nonconference challenge.

The Vikings are 8-1 and boast one of the biggest upsets in the nation, over No. 7 Vanderbilt on the road. They are receiving votes in both top-25 polls. Significant to MAC fans, CSU beat Kent State at the M.A.C. Center.

Gary Waters' CSU team is feisty and aggressive, led by three senior guards. It could be a long afternoon for the Zips, whose ball handlers have had some dreadful games this year.

The Zips and Vikings tip off at 2 p.m. Saturday. I will be liveblogging from the Wolstein Center.
