Akron Zips: One And Done, Not One And Gone

Lace BanachekAnalyst IMarch 21, 2009

It is always sad when a talented team falls to another. However, it was fun watching the talented shooters of Akron play against the likes of Gonzaga.

Hats off to a brilliant coaching staff as the Zips have nothing to explain, much less hang their heads about.

Tournament competition is never easy. Albeit win or lose, comes recognition. The testament to that statement is the quality commits that desire to be Akron Zips.

Zeke Marshall is a fantastic commit for Akron. He should develop nicely and improve/upgrade the size program for Akron.

His near seven-foot frame and defensive wingspan will keep the Zips in many games. Scout.com has Marshall as pure potential for the Zip’s MAC level and into the pro game upon graduation.

Time running and lifting weights will aid Marshall greatly as he moves forward in his transition being Akron’s power big man.

Work hard Akron players—be proud Zip fans—we expect you all to grace the floors of the 2010 NCAA season, pushing your way, all the way back to the March Madness Tournament.
