The NCAA Tournament bracket does not include Akron.
The Zips' season ends with a 13-5-1 record. Sinisa Ubiparipovic had a great season with seven goals and seven assists. Other than his MAC Player of the Year award, the season is a giant disappointment.
You really can't argue otherwise. The Zips were ranked in the preseason top 10, yet could not win the conference tournament or earn a berth in the 48-team NCAA Tournament.
