So let's get down to it. All in all, the Zips played phenomenal basketball. They took their time on the offensive end (which is always when they're at their best) and let Alex Abreu run the show when he was on the floor. One of the strongest points of this year's team is that almost everybody on the team can sprint the floor on defense, and handle the ball well on offense.
- Zeke Marshall. His rebounding wasn't great (only 3), but he stayed out of foul trouble and shot 5-5 from the floor and 6-8 from the line to lead the team with 16 points.
- Nikola Cvetinovic, the reason Zeke Marshall only grabbed three rebounds. The Serbian Wonder pulled in 10 rebounds along with 8 points.
- Mike Bardo; a season-high 6 rebounds in 12 minutes. I like this guy. Pure hustle when he's on the court.
- Steve McNees. He finished with 9 points, all from threes (go figure) and led the team with 4 assists.
- Alex Abreu. He's just fun to watch. He's also going to be pretty darn good in the next few years. He finished with 6 points (2-6, 1-3 from three-point range) and 3 assists.
- Quincy Diggs played the sixth-man role perfectly, shooting 3-4 for 8 points and 4 rebounds. Unfortunately he also had 4 turnovers.
The Not So Good, But We Won So I Can't Really Call It Awful:
- Brett McKnight. I don't know what happened to him. He finished this game 1-4, 2 points, 1 rebound, a steal, and 3 fouls. I wouldn't think that missing 7 games would affect a senior this badly, especially the former Sixth Man of the Year in the MAC, but other than one 21 point game this year, he's been out of it.
That's all folks! No televised games for a while, but the Zips travel to Eastern Michigan this Wednesday for a 7pm matchup.
