The Akron Zips continued preparations for tonight’s game against cross-county rival Kent State without starting point guard Alex Abreu who was arrested Thursday after noon and charged with possession and trafficking marijuana.
As is their policy on game days team members and coach Keith Dambrot didn’t talk to the media. However if Abreu’s absence was felt it didn’t show in a team that practiced loose yet still appeared to be all business.
UA and Kent State will tipoff tonight in a nationally televised game on ESPN2.
