Akron beats Buffalo

Believing in something more is sometimes tough to do. It was clear during the Buffalo press conference, that faith played a big role in their valiant effort to come back from a 12 point deficit in the second half.

Felisha Legette-Jack started off thanking God for the opportunity that she has coaching the Buffalo program, and continued her up beat attitude throughout the presser. She spoke about turning children into adults, building her program around good people, and helping the Mid-American Conference grow in exposure when it comes to the women's basketball.

Honest, it is tough not to root for her now.

One of the major reasons why the Bulls had so much success in the last half was because they cut down their turnovers and stopped Rachel Tecca from being Rachel Tecca-- Although Tecca did finish with 13 points and nine rebounds and scored two of the bigger points in the game at the end. Tecca finished 6-19.

"Lets give some credit to Buffalo," Said Zips head coach Jodi Kest, "They were sending two or three players at her at a time."

And though Tecca 'struggled', her teammates picked her up. Taylor Ruper came up with a big time four point play to tie the game at 70-70. The Zips kept fighting and managed to take a lead that they did not give up, winning the game 83-79.

The Zips will go on to face #2 Ball State tomorrow at 2:30.

Battle Of The Bands:

This battle belonged to Akron. Buffalo, surprising, came out LATE to the floor, and did not make it out until right before tip-off. Not too mention Akron's band made strong use of the Cowbell. Akron is 1-0, while Buffalo falls to 1-2.
