Romeo Travis and Dru Joyce did not consider allowing their team to lose on Senior Night.
Nope. Nu'uh. No way.
Travis had 37 points and 11 rebounds. Joyce managed a great game, scored 13 points and dished seven assists.
The Zips held off Bowling Green 93-87 in front of a near sell-out crowd. In the postgame press conference, Keith Dambrot was very pleased with the turnout.
It wasn't the best defensive effort, but Bowling Green made a disproportionate amount of 3s, which isn't always the defense's fault. Making free throws were a huge problem for Akron, too.
Overall, it was very good to see Travis and Joyce get the respect they deserve from the community. After the game, Dambrot said he doesn't think people will understand Travis and Joyce's impact on this program for another 10 years.
While I agree with that, I think Dambrot is downplaying the significance of his own effort.
I'll have more on the game tomorrow.
