TV Take: Gonzaga learns it can handle a physical battle thanks to Akron’s ‘fight’

If you missed the Gonzaga game Saturday night and only caught the score later, you might be surprised to learn it was a battle.

AKRON, Ohio – Palming a basketball in each hand, Zeke Marshall’s arms are outstretched across the entire face of a building next to the bustling student union. Akron’s 7-foot center towers above campus.

Akron won 93-92 on Brett McKnight’s bucket from close range with 0.5 seconds remaining in the extra session.
