The inside is definitely the strength. They have the outside shooters, but arent always consistent, and two of them are true freshman. I agree that guard play is the weak spot. I think they really miss Diggs as a lock down defender in the back court. Time will tell, I suppose.Ive watched Akron a couple times this year on TV. I think they finally have the size to make a tourney run, but they still don't have the guard play or the ability to shoot from long range to get it done.
They have time to turn around their shot selection, but without a guard that can take a game over, I just don't see Akron making a run.
Having a 7 footer in the game at all times is definitely a plus against major programs.
