The Zips had a double-digit lead against Kent State, but lost it and the game, 63-57.
Akron fell to 9-2 in the MAC and 16-5 overall. Kent moved to 10-1 and 16-6.

I will say this: Let's remember that Akron's only conference losses were close away games to good teams. We'll have a better idea of how Akron matches up to Kent State when they play at Rhodes Arena.
