Buffalo (7-12, 2-3) vs. Akron (14-4, 5-0)
Time: 7 p.m. today
Where: Rhodes Arena
Radio/Internet: WARF (1350-AM), beginning at 6:30 p.m.; MAC Digital Network.
Notes: The Bulls were the only team in the Mid-American Conference to beat the Zips in both games the teams played last season. ... The big difference this year is that there is no Mitchell Watt, last year’s MAC Player of the Year. ... What remains the same? Junior forward Javon McCrea is still a beast around the basket, averaging better than 17 points per game. ... The Zips are looking to win their 11th consecutive game and sixth consecutive in conference. The current streak is the best the program has had since the 1972-73 season.
