Zips lose at NIU

Women's basketball

Akron played well offensively, but allowed Northern Illinois to score 81 this afternoon.

The Zips lost on the road 81-70.

At 0-6, Akron is searching for its first MAC win. The Huskies (12-5, 4-2 MAC) were a tough opponent and West Division leader Ball State will be, too. The Cardinals will visit Rhodes Arena on Tuesday.


Although no one tallied team scores from the Simmons/Harvey Invitational this weekend, it appears the Zips fared well.

Event winners include Corine Gavin-Hall (200 meter), Cadeau Kelley (triple jump) and James Howell (200 meter).

Swimming and diving

Defending MAC champion Eastern Michigan broke Akron's six-meet home winning streak this afternoon.

The Zips will get one more warmup before the MAC Championships. Toledo will come to the ONAT next Saturday.
