Wow, did I just see a D1 player (X) follow his shot and rebound his own miss?  I can't recall the last time I saw that happen,


Yes! His jumper still looks a little off. Has been since he got back from the injury. But he’s creating and making smart plays, and the effort is top notch at always. He’s quickly moving up the ranks of my favorite Zips of all time.

Poor shot-making has made its return. The Zips have manufactured an offense that should have close to 40 points in this game right now. WMU on the brink of taking a lead or close game into the break. So much harder to overcome on the road.

Sammy’s effort on the boards has cost the Zips a couple possessions and points. Freeman struggling offensively, having a lot of shots altered and having trouble finding help. Tribble also not able to get deep inside. Hankerson letting it fly, mostly good shots not falling. Can’t really complain about the defense too much. X phenomenal despite a slow start shooting. 
 

Akron was a couple possessions on offense and defense from burying them early, just did not capitalize.

Inauspicious start to the half.   Man, I knew Western was going to come out and blow this open. The MAC isn't good this year.  Unless Toledo can be something other than typical Toledo, PCCC picked the right year to have their best team in decades.

I've actually enjoyed these announcers. They are not hiding that they would prefer if WMU wins, but they have been very willing to praise the Zips when deserved. I really like the color guy, play by play sometimes is obviously pressing to find words to fill silence.

Are these Western Michigan announcers on ESPN+? The fact that they are openly rooting for the Broncos, I'd assume they are. They are awful to listen to and so unprofessional. 

they can't be making more than a few hundred bucks per game.  4 fouls on Norman.

I try not to be too pessimistic in moments like these, but the Zips can’t shoot the ball today. Getting all the looks they want and not much inside. But they’re not falling at the rate they need to. If that trend continues, they would be lucky to escape with a win
