After watching part of our Men’s Basketball team practice this morning, I wanted to communicate with you as we consider you to be part of our team as well.
We are obviously saddened to learn of the situation involving Alex Abreu. We don’t know all of the facts and will await more information in the days and weeks ahead as the legal process plays out.
What I do know is that our team is determined to move forward. I am proud of the focus that Coach Dambrot and our student-athletes have shown last night and today in preparation for tonight’s game against Kent State before a sold-out crowd at Rhodes Arena.
We are excited about the energy and passion that all of you will bring tonight as you cheer on the Zips. Let’s be loud and proud! Whether you’ll be at the JAR or watching on ESPN2, we appreciate your continued support for Akron Basketball.
Director of Athletics
P.S. If you’re coming to the game tonight, please arrive early to help us honor Chauncey Gilliam, Zeke Marshall and Brian Walsh as part of our Senior Night pre-game activities.
