Here is is... it's BracketBusters time, and while we'll stop short of encouraging signal theft, do whatever you need to do to be in front of one of the 39 U.S. television sets that can pick up ESPNU tonight. Because you're going to get to see two teams that will likely have NCAA seed numbers attached to them in a month.
The told-you-so Zips are hot: 14 wins in 16 games, but the doesn't-take-a-genius-to-know-they're-awesome Pack is just a tad hotter: they had the presence of mind to have their struggles back in January, and have rattled off 9 of 11, including six straight. Akron's job number one will be to stop Nick Fazekas
from dropping 35 on them. And the Zips' 6-foot-or-so guard combo of Dru Joyce
(10.4 ppg) and Nick Dials
(10.8 ppg) doesn't match up size-wise to Nevada's oversized backcourt (a constant rotation of 6'3" greyhounds) so they'll have to out-quick them. Extra bonus for the winner: it'll be their 20th of the season (Akron: 19-7, Nevada: 19-5).
