The NIT Tournament continues on Wednesday night all across the country. One of the games that takes place in Texas is between the Akron Zips and the Houston Cougars.
Each team comes into this having gone 3-2 in their last five games. This is the first meeting between the two teams in recent history.
The Akron Zips no doubt have to be disappointed that they didn’t make the NCAA Tournament, but the have to make the most of the opportunity that they have in front of them, and make the most out of it.
The Zips strength is on the offensive side of the floor.
They average 76.7 points per game well shooting 46.7 percent from the field. To win this game they need to play on that side of the ball.
The Cougars are good on that side of the ball, so they need to try and attack that.
With a couple more wins, the Houston Cougars would be in the NCAA Tournament, but they didn’t get those so here they are with a first round home game in the NIT.
They come into this game having won seven of their last ten games.
For the Cougars to win it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball.
They only give up 64.5 points per game. To win this this game they need to keep the Zips around that number, or they might be going home from the NIT early.
