I saw a team make clutch plays down the stretch to win a close game. Though Akron is not as good as they've been the last several years, they are still a decent team. The MAC is so balanced this season and there will be a lot of close games.

The Rockets would have lost this game last season, but they made winning plays at the end tonight. The objective of the game is to win. It doesn't matter if they win each game by one point. Just win!

Go Rockets!

Akron is not a “decent” team. I will be very surprised to hear that TK was happy with this game, other than it was a W. This wasn’t a game we should have needed clutch plays in the final minute to win.

I choose to celebrate victories. Go Rockets!
+1 A win is a win is a win and I do agree that this is a game they might have lost last year. In fact this is a game they lost earlier this season to Wright State.

I thought a key moment in the game was about midway through the 2nd half, when Akron had all the momentum and their pressure had pretty much shut down the Rockets' offense. You could feel the Rockets were on the ropes, and for some reason Groce inexplicably calls a time out. The breather seemed to give UT a chance to get its bearings, and when play resumed, Akron's momentum was gone.

Sometimes coaches out-coach themselves.

63 percent from the foul line. Not good. But they did outscore them 14-2 there.

Out rebounded 35-29.

Akron with 4 more PiP 24-20.

Outscored 36-24 in second half.

W. Jackson's line was pretty slim for 24 minutes of playing time, but so were most other than Fletcher.

Another ho-hum game. When the game gets slowed down, they have no post-up game to go to. If they don't shoot well (2nd half 2pt 7-20 35% - 3pt 9-8 0%) they struggle.

That Sanford kid wasn’t too shabby.

+1

Played tough against a really good Buffalo team on the road. Should of won going away versus a not as good Akron team at home.

So much parity in the MAC everybody wins and loses games they shouldn't this year.

I thought the turn around in the second half was Marreon Jackson returning to the game. He is a guy that creates shot opportunities. The TV announcers made this point. This team is tough. Willie Jackson doesn't look real comfortable out there yet. I get the feeling it will be big when he does. I feel Adway is real pleasant surprise. He has not reached his ceiling yet, either.

Akron had very little competition on Toledo's offensive boards. Too many times it was 3 Akron guys to 0 Toledo guys. That has to improve. When you shoot so many outside shots, somebody has to compete under the boards. Adway, Navigato, Willie Jackson, Knapke, and Fletcher need to get more serious about this.

Alderson is a natural ball player. I love the hustle. I would like to see him in more.

This team has not peaked yet. Hats off the Sanford. He is a leader on the court. Glad he is a Rocket!
