The Zips absolutely shut down Western Michigan's potent offense today in a 69-36 decision in favor of Akron.
The Barbaros -- I mean, Broncos -- shot just 25 percent from the field. The Zips blocked seven shots and made 10 steals (although both stats seem a little lower than I remember).
The interior defense was particularly suffocating. WMU star Joe Reitz scored only six points on 10 field goal attempts.
On offense, it was Nick Dials from long range and Romeo Travis inside. They scored 12 and 17 respectively. Travis really impressed me with his low post scoring. I don't have rebounding stats in front of me, but it seemed Jeremiah Wood was very active on the boards.
