Akron to host second round NIT game with a win over Ohio State


An SEC team could be traveling to a MAC basketball arena in the near future - but only if the Akron Zips take down Ohio State on Tuesday. The Zips would play the winner of the Florida/North Florida contest, and because of arena construction in Gainesville, the Gators are traveling to each opponent during their stay in the NIT. Akron has already defeated one SEC team this season, taking down Arkansas in Fayetteville in November.
