Heading into what amounts to a scrimmage, coach Keith Dambrot wants to see his Zips improve their shooting, defense and bench play.
Akron will tip off against Dambrot's former team, Tiffin, at 2 p.m. today.
In Tom Gaffney's preview, Dambrot talks about missing the opportunity of playing Texas Tech on national television.
Akron won its first game of the Jodi Kest era yesterday, beating Binghamton 55-44.
As we can expect this season, the Zips received double-figure scoring from Sarah Tokodi, Niki McCoy and Jessie Crooks. What got Akron ahead was a boost from freshman Riana Miller, a 6-foot-3 forward who notched seven points and five rebounds.
Akron will play next at home Wednesday at 7 p.m. against Valparaiso.
