2010 has been very good to the University of Akron Women's Basketball Team. After a big overtime win at Ball State last night, the Zips are now 5-2 in conference play. The 5-2 record keeps the Zips at the top tier of the MAC standings, currently in second place.

With wins over Miami, Buffalo, Kent State, Western Michigan, and Ball State the Zips are poised to continue their success throughout the remainder West games and into the East matchups! Below are the links to the Zips conference wins! We hit the road again on Saturday when we take on a very good Eastern Michigan team. We will return to the JAR Arena on Feb. 4th against Central Michigan. We hope to see you there!!! Until next time... GO ZIPS!!!

Holiday Party!!!

I hope everyone had a great Holiday season! Last week we had our annual Holiday Party at Coach Kest's House. It was a great night filled with laughs, good food, gifts, and even a little snow! This team is very special and so much fun to be around. Whenever we get together it is hard not to have stomach aches from laughing so much!

At our Holiday Party we finally revealed our Secret Santa identity and gave our big gifts. It was alot of fun to see the players and coaches try and guess who had them. I applaud the players that kept their secrets for this long. If you know our team this in itself is a daunting task! Their was great gifts given and even a few gag gifts. I am still trying to figure out if my 12 pack of diet coke is a gag gift? (Thanks Denver!)

It was a great weekend for the Zips! We got our first conference win against Buffalo on Saturday, beating the Bulls 72-56. Our Men's Team also had a great win against Bowling Green 71-45. Also, Men's Soccer player, Teal Bunbury, won this year's Hermann Trophy recognizing him as the best soccer player in the country.

This week we play Kent State on Wednesday night at home. Tip is at 7pm. This will be a great game not only because of the rivalry but because Kent is playing very well. We hope to see you in stands Wednesday!
