  1. Today
  2. I give up. I can't listen to this for 20 minutes, and there's no way to move the time clock up. Shoots!
  3. We offered him in may of last year. Heard he might be taking the post grad route I think the bigger schools have cooled down on him. Maybe would have been a impact freshman in the MAC mobile 6’9 - 6’10 can finish at the rim and has good defensive instincts.
  4. Yesterday
  5. On BTSTODAY Joe Dunn talked about the friction between Bob Huggins & Gerry Faust as detailed one Huggins book. Did the Akron Zips football team really practice in cleats on the basketball court?

  7. I think we still have 2 open: LCJ Reece Ali Tribble Dawson Dailey Trimble Currie Clarke Edwards Marshall ? ?
  8. I still don't think I've gotten an answer on this. Do we have a scholarship left to offer anyone?
  9. I know nothing of this kid from Centerville, but if Groce thinks he'd be a good fit and thinks there is enough mutual interest then sure go after him. That being said, as a true freshmen he wouldn't solve our immediate need at the 5 position. We need to land a JUCO or grad transfer.
  10. +1. We still don't have a piece to plug into Riak's spot.
  11. I'd love to start beating UD & Xavier for recruits. Have we offered him?
  12. Like I always say: SIZE DOES NOT MATTER Of course, it does. We could be one big away from another spectacular season. We look to be fairly long, but REALLY need that GOOD 6'11 guy in the middle. It would make a huge difference.
  13. Any opinions on 6’9 F from Centerville OH Mo Njie? In state kid still available and we really need some size. Holds a couple offers from bigger programs like Xavier and UD. Have to think he’s a top target for John Groce and staff.
  14. https://promo.ignitecx.com/ZipsMBBChamps20?camefrom=EMCL_3269687_156501019 You can order some Akron Zips championship t shirts and sweatshirts. The prices aren't bad.
  15. Last week
  16. What was the competition like that he was posting up against? Same size guys or bigger than him?
  17. Local TV story on Currie from back in December- https://nbc25news.com/sports/path-to-greatness/path-to-greatness-taylor-currie They have some Mott CC game video on Youtube. Watched some of them and saw that Currie played a lot with is back to the basket, posting up. In one game, the opponent devoted a lot of effort to fronting him and he did a good job of holding his ground. Did a nice job rebounding also. He's not a defensive presence. He'll very much benefit from the Zips weight program. Some of what I saw was scheme as the high school/AAU video I previously saw had him a lot more on the perimeter and he has a reasonable shot.
  18. It's only JUCO. I expect a dropoff to a disappointing 19 PPG and 8 RPG a game a the D1 level.. 😁
  19. An interesting story I missed in 2018 about a lefty. https://www.beaconjournal.com/akron/sports/leonard-pauls-decision-to-spurn-pistons-for-hometown-cavaliers-likely-cost-him-spot-in-nba-in-1973
  20. I know Dailey is listed as a F on Akron's roster, as there are so few non-guards, lol. However, he was strictly in the 2-guard spot in Iowa City, and his game seems suited for it. But this is the #MACtion, so he seems perfectly suited to whichever wing spot Groce slots him into!
