Akron opened with a very tough opponent in South Dakota State and won in OT. They get Mississippi State in the Barstool Invitational in Philly tonight, then they start their "warmup" part of the schedule. Toledo is playing in the first game of the Barstool Invitational against UAB.

Toledo opened with a win over Valpo.

We're gonna suck. 🤷
Maybe. UAB was encouraging. Just got destroyed by an FCA playing transfers, the another loss. Got no post presence and lost some outside shooting and replaced it with perimeter defense. Doesn't seem to be working.

Kent St gave both Houston and Gonzaga a game. Couldn't hold on til the end.
Their football coach hired away but how about that AD? Getting games like this in BBall. Wash, Ok and Georgia in football.
