Game 25- Central Michigan

Recommended Posts

Groce is really using his bench a lot more the past few games.  I think it really helps the team in the last 10 minutes of the game if all the players are not playing 30 plus minutes.  I saw a nice play by Ali and then watched Tribble and Ali look at each other on an easy rebound that turned into 2 points for Central Michigan.   Jackson is having an outstanding game.  Once again we started out cold from the 3 line and started 1 of 7.  The last 3 games we have started very cold from the 3 line.  Central Michigan has a bunch of offensive rebounds but many are off of long rebounds where the Zips have inside position.  This looks like it is going to be a close game the rest of the way.

The announcers are HORRIBLE.

 

Announcers clueless and surprised about the offensive fouls.  All that have been called have been pretty clear cut.

Yes.   Michael Regghi always says "Book it to the Akron Zips"

Turned the game on and we were up 12.....immediately lead got down to like 3 so I have French and Dunn on instead. Appreciate the updates on validity of calls.

Reece should play 25+ minutes a night. Convince me otherwise

 

After hearing what Riak just did (and continues to do) I can't disagree. Though I know Deng is a better defender.

Tough to do after watching Riak knock the ball out of bounds.

Nice win for the Zips.  This team, unlike the last few years, seems to excel at crunch time.  A double digit win on the road....impressive.

Huge win. Not perfect, but three good second halves in a row is big. Tuesday won't be easy. Hell, none of them are if you ask me. Keep it rolling.

Playing the bench guys in the first half is really making a difference.  These guys are closing out games because they are getting some rest in the first half.  Groce has found a great rotation.  Reese has really been playing well.  We often wondered how good Akron would be with a dominant point guard and Jackson is that guard.  I can't recall a player improving so much from one season to another.  HE is doing everything right from not turning the ball over to shooting the ball well, hitting shots in the paint and shooting the ball from 3.  Adding that runner to his game has really made him almost unstoppable at times.  Fun game to watch.

Riak needs to learn some basics

In the last few games, he has
Stepped on the line on an inbounds pass

had two inbounds passes picked off.

 

This is not acceptable in D1 hoops where we win or lose by one point!

I'm going to miss Groce when he leaves. He's an A1 guy and a damn good coach. Hopefully he sticks around at least thru next year.
