  1. I wonder after 7 years of B ball he decided it was enough or did he leave early so he could get an 8th year next year. Every time you take a transfer it is a risk.
  2. For all those Zips fans that complain about the refs, we got every call in the last minute of the game. X got a foul call when driving to the hoop, Marshall got called for a foul on Freeman under the basket on a rebound, Freeman got fouled on the dunk, a travelling call on Marshall on an offensive rebound, and the foul by Marshall on Freeman with 3.2 seconds left. Don't get me wrong, they were all fouls and violations in my eyes, but the refs rarely see the same things I do. However, the key to the game was Marshall missing on a one and one that would have sealed the game. And the Zips hitting their foul shots at the end of the game. We earned this game and a great victory for the Zips.
  3. Yes, I can see the coach drawing up plays but it all Greek to me. I have had those seats for over 10 years and that was a first.
  4. That was one of the best games and finishes in a long time. I heard during Groce pregame that they were going to play the ball low to Freeman. And it worked!! He has improved so much offensively. I sit behind the Marshall Bench and telling his player that Tribble was not a shooter and to not guard him on the perimeter. I guess that started listening in the second half. I am sorry to hear that Walton is no longer with the team but it opened up time for Tribble, and other players. I even saw Wynn. My only gripe is the Groce should not have gone to a zone and given up a wide open 3 in the corner. Our zone play was not that great. I think we are better man to man. I hope they continue to feed Freeman in the post.
  5. Glad to see the team shoot the ball well today. The last 2 days have been brutal.
  6. I think Tribble is doing well playing the point. The offense seems to be running smoothly. I like that they are getting the ball into Freeman.
  7. I feel like I am watching an Akron football game. I have had enough of Trimble firing away from 3. I am glad he made one but that has to be 2 for 25. Groce wants him to shoot out of his slump. Great, but I am done watching it.
  8. The second half starts same as the first. One turnover and 3 missed 3 shots. What about those law of averages.
  9. When KD was coach, we had great shooters but we were not athletic and everybody on this board indicated that Akron should recruit athletes, we can always teach ball players to shoot. Maybe we were wrong. (LOL)
  10. I think there may be less complaining if the game had been on ESPN plus for free. However, many of us spent $30 to watch this tournament and expected a Zips team that was ready to compete. Also, I stated during the Wheeling and Point Park thread that those games were a waste of time and did nothing to prepare the team for the season. This game seems to prove my point.
  11. This is what happens when you have no senior leadership. When we would get in these shooting funks last year LCJ would drive to the hoop and dish for a basket or hit a jumper. Ali, Trimble, Tribble, just could not spark anything. Freeman was the only one who could score and they had some nice blocks on him in the second half. Lets hope this game is a abberation. After football and soccer, we are all looking for redemption in our b ball program.
  12. Disagree, this is worse. VCU was a good team that played pressure defense against an undermanned Akron squad. What is our excuse in this game, the arena is too big?
  13. Can we sum up the week for Akron sports: Freeze my butt off to watch Akron soccer lose to a crappy Santa Clara team. Akron football gets killed by Kent State and cannot score on a Kent State defense that sucks, (had the good sense to stay away from that one) and I pay $30 to watch Akron Basketball lose by 25 points to the worse team in the A 10 by 30 points and goes 0 for 20 from the 3 line. Go Zips!!!!!!!
  14. They might get suspcious when a dozen people from Akron make the same claim. (LOL)
  15. Akron cannot even hit a foul shot. The wheels have come off the wagon. Even the annoucers are hoping that the Zips will hit a 3. I don't think I have ever seen such a bad shooting team.
