Akron definitely looks like the best team in the MAC. Perhaps even good enough for an at large bid.
To be in the running for that they can have no slip ups. They need to win out and dominate so this game will matter.
Eastern Michigan has lost three in a row so I was surprised to see that the number is so small.
Akron is good. They have just one conference losses and all of their losses this season have been on the road.
They are not always dominating in the MAC but the wins keep coming. Nothing wrong with that.
Isaiah Johnson is a beast at center at 290 pounds but is also much more. He leads the team in scoring and assists…pretty amazing for a big man – he rebounds too.
The Zips are super strong up front with Kwan Cheatham, another 6’10” player who leads in rebounding and is second in scoring.
Akron is solid on the perimeter, but they are nothing special. Just a trio of guys that can take care of the ball and shoot well enough from deep.
Akron is not an elite team nationally but their frontcourt strength and consistency overall is impressive.
Eastern Michigan Eagles
EMU is struggling right now, they have lost three in a row and five of six. Akron is not a great streak buster for them.
They do have some size inside in James Thompson IV. He is averaging a double-double at 15/10 but he is slender compared to the beef that Akron has. The Eagles have another “legacy” in Willie Mangum IV – he leads the team in scoring at 16ppg.
EMU is not a good three point shooting team and it hurts them as the game features that more than ever. They make just one in three – 255th in the nation.
They do defend that well so if they do not get too clobbered inside maybe they can keep this one close like the spread predicts.

Free Akron Zips vs. Eastern Michigan Eagles NCAAB Prediction:
Akron is the best team in the league so getting them at such a small number in any environment looks pretty good.
They have to dominate inside though, and I think they have the bodies to do just that.
