Akron lost to Valpo
Zeke Marshall fouled out with ZERO points and ZERO rebounds. Valpo attempted 30 more FT than Akron. Valpo was 0-14 from the 3 pt line.

Yikes, Akron must SUCK. 03-lmfao

Watched the game. Did not look like the same team that beat MSU. Akron really did play dumb. All teams are capable of that on a given night. Akron is not as good as I thought. Not so worried now.

Danny - Valpo shot 38 free throws and the Zips 7. Sounds like our good friends in stripes from the Horizon League back up to their old tricks again. =)

Yeah. Saw the box score. I would say that would be the difference, but Valpo missed a lot of FT and didn't make a single 3. All I can say is from looking at the box score, I am not impressed with Akron. That being said, when people play us it is like playing the Green Bay Packers. When people play us, we get their best shot. It's like the their Super Bowl.

RE: Akron lost to Valpo
I watched their first half against Hiram last weekend and it's a typical Keith Dambrot-coached team. Maybe slightly more athletic than last year's team but also not quite as physical. McClanahan has had a slow start to the year but I still think they will be in the thick of the MAC East race.

I wouldn't see this happening again. Like I say every year, we lost to YSU in the same season we went to the Elite 8.

RE: Akron lost to Valpo
This year's Akron team is in no way comparable to the 2002 KSU team. Akron's problem is that while they have talent out front, they lack seasoned leadership. They have some very immature players. Their most mature player plays down low and can't really lead from that position in pressure possessions.

They will get these performances from Marshall, too. He will be great at times and he will disappear. That isn't going to change. He doesn't have the personality or B-ball IQ to dominate consistently. Essentially, he is a role player who can give you some all-conference minutes, and will hurt you at other times.

Expect more of the foul discrepancy you saw last night. They reach, grab, and hack a lot. Among the better teams in the MAC, they will rack up more fouls. They barrel down the lane hoping for calls. When it goes their way, life is good. When refs call it close, the opponent will get to the line a lot, like last night. They were lucky Valpo shot poorly from the line. Akron fouled a lot last night. I'm sure their fans will say, "look at the foul discrepancy!" Valpo fans will say, "That team sure hacked a lot."

Interesting. Not going to comment much, because we’ll have a game or two that makes us shake out heads.

I'm not trying to compare our 2002 team to Akron or any MAC team in history. That team could beat every team in the MAC to this date. However, I'm saying that our best team lost to a bad YSU team, so why wouldn't an overrated MAC team in 2011 lose to Valpo.

Like I said, I don't see this happening again, based on simply seeing boxed scores and a 3 point loss.
