And the battle continues...

I wish one of the local TV stations would pick up this game. UA vs Kent is always a good game.

Go Zips!

Slow news day? We seriously have an article stating that the Zips are "wrecking" Kent State's MAC title hopes because they are one game ahead, just four games into a MAC season that is completely dependent on a MAC tournament?

GO FLASHES !!! Neither has beaten a ranked team, so if they don't win the MAC tournament championship, neither will be going to the NCAA or NIT playoffs again, 20 wins or not.

Outstanding writing here. Kent States plans are being ruined? 14-4. Looks like they are WELL on there way to another 20 win season. Does Stephanie thinks Akron will go undefeated in the MAC this year??! This is a good matchup, with two good teams. But I don't think that Akron has ruined any plans yet.

I agree with most of the above the game first and let the season develop a little. If Akron wins tonight, sure, you can definitely make the argument this article does. But I think it's a little premature to say that Akron is "ruining" Kent State's plans.

The story is premature. But, if Akron wins, they are up by 2 games & have home court against KSU in the final game. These are the 2 best teams in the MAC & I expect them to remain close all season.
I attended & root for both, but I am mainly an Akron fan. Hope they stay the top 2 so they can possibly meet in the tournament final-not like last year when Miami got lucky.

This will be a great game! It is great to see the game is sold out. Northeast Ohio should be very excited with the basketball being played in the area. We have three teams, counting CSU, that have real shots at post season play. Let's GO ZIPS!!

I will say that Kent fans lacked class during and after last year's loss to Akron in the MAC Tournament.

Does the MAC Center have the new transgendered bathrooms?
