McNees v. Porrini early. What a pretty shot McNees has too. Kent might want to find that guy on their defensive end.

Disappointed in the bland color of Randall Holt's shoes tonight. Big stage like this deserves the canary yellow kicks.

No Reghi. After calling 6 games in 2 days, please step aside as we're now airing on espn2. Thanks for your hard work, here's a Romeos pizza for your efforts. You'd think the self proclaimed "Voice of the MAC" should at least call their championship game.

McNees is unconscious. Jeezus. Catch and shoot 3 with a heel damn near on the sideline. KSU squabbling a bit as they walk off the floor.

Rodriguez Sherman in McNees's pocket. He could tell you what McNees ate for lunch. Does open the middle for Cvetinovic and Marshall though.

Porrini better get involved quickly for Kent.

McNees is still wearing Sherman like a poncho and is scoreless in the 2nd half.

And there will be no need to mop the floor tonight given the time Porrini has spent on it.

Danger time for Kent down 6.

Watch it again, SSS. No fouls anywhere there.

Kent can only blame themselves. 12/23 at the stripe with the chance to get a multi-possession lead near the end of regulation.

Have to agree.

Tourney excitement primer between this game and the Pac-10 as both went down to the buzzer.

Peek- How full was the lower bowl? Looked full on TV. Damn good crowd.

The refs swallowed their whistles in the final few minutes. Which looking at their disgusting calls in previous games and tournaments, is probably a blessing...

They replayed it. Certainly looked inadvertent. The guy from Kent, who was probably the one who passed up the best look in that final possession, was laying on the floor around mid-court. The Akron players were celebrating and backed into him stepping on his head. If you don't want stepped on, move. It also looked like one of the Kent assistants was right in the middle, instigating, rather than separating.

I'd say the lower bowl was about 75% full, maybe a bit better. It was a good crowd and a good game to watch. It won't be part of any instructional videos. Disappointed that Porrino disappeared. Played hard but couldn't get to the rim with Akron's size waiting for him.

Those teams have an honest hatred for each other.

Attention all losing basketball players. Quit the drama glomming for the camera and get off the floor. You're liable to get stomped on the head. And not a one person feels bad for you cause you lost the MAC finals. F'in tsunamis flyin' around and every jerk-off who lost this week is suckin' the hardwood for camera time.

Everyone's the next Benny Anders. Difference being Ole Benny was stunned at the buzzer in one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament FINALS history. In a MAC final - one in which you clanged 45 straight charity tosses and drove about the same number of times into the dominating shot blocker on the floor....get in the locker room.

Besides, you don't want to cry in front of your three kids.

Yep. As impressive as Porrini was Friday he was every bit a whiny, ineffective bitch on Saturday.

Disappointing because dude is talented and sees the court so well. But his ineffectiveness and unwillingness to adjust was a big reason the 6th seed in the tourney is advancing.

Akron had to take out the 3 seed, the 2 seed, and the 1 seed in successive nights.

Oh, and forget what I said about Zeke being a year away. Zeke became a man tonight.

A weak, malnourished man with bad hands. But a man non-the-less.

Dude gets pushed around way too much. I hope for Akron's sake (and I'll be pulling for them hard in the NCAA) that they don't match up with a team that has a big strong body in the middle. Could get ugly.

As for the game, I was cheering for baskets by both teams down the stretch. I just wanted a good game with a good ending, and I got it. I had some Kent fans going bananas behind me about the non calls at the end but I personally didn't think there were any fouls. I thought there may have been some contact on the first drive but you don't get bailed out at that point of the game, especially when you haven't been converting anyway.

And for the record, I was sitting with a good friend, who's a Kent graduate and the most die-hard fan I've ever met (for any team), and he didn't think there was a foul.

Agree Ryan- I saw nothing that warranted a whistle at that point especially given the physical nature of the game through the first 44 minutes.

That picture shows the the last seconds of respect for Porrini that I had too.

Lay on the floor and your grape will get stomped. To cry about it after is just a punk play.

They've been trying to bulk him up, but depending on the opponent, have been playing Bardo and Cvetinovic there. He also has a way of getting into foul trouble with those long branches. Which puts a bullseye on his back, in one game he got called for two fouls in the first minute. :lame:

He needs some meat on his bones, and a little work on fouling himself out. Getting Dakotah Euton developed to replace the bigs they are losing will be a big help.

my one buddy from a summer job is involved with the team at some level (not ON the team), and is traveling with them.

I'll be pulling for akron to do well so he can have a good time, other than that though....can't say I'm too happy with the results.

dn't get in until now, but a few words on KSU - Akron.

I give Akron no credit. None. nada, Zero. That was the worst game Kent has played since before Jim McDonald was coach. There was a lid on the rim and they shot like crap. Missed about 6,000 loks in the poaint they normally nail. Akron has one good player in Marshall and a bunch of crap. All their players look like Mongoloids or criminals. They could be extras in The Hills Have Eyes or Wrong Turn 2 . Proof positive your crummy reject school is open enrollment unlike Kent. They probably gum boiled meats. They will lose by 20 with their unathletic stiffs and be one and done. They don't even look like a D 1 team. Kent simply played down to their level of shit, and if Justin Green can hit a gd free throw they still win.


So I give you no credit, Spin. None. You prop up your crap team. That's your job, not mine. Enojy the upcoming Molly whompin'. Might even be a full on beat down.

And screw you selecetion comittee and your anti-MAC bias. Clearly, Kent deserved to be there more than Virginia who.

Hail to Kent forever, on the Cuyahoga shore.

Does a creek really have a "shore"?

Oh come on, nobody likes a sore loser. :tool:

Don't want to hear your lame ass excuses, don't want to hear how you don't accept the loss, and I certainly don't want to hear any more trash talk about Akron.
:lame:

You are the perfect example of why we hate your urine colored team so much, and why it feels so fuckin good to kick your ass.

Next time you got something to say about the Zips, save both of us time and just shove it up your ass as soon as you think it. :fu:
