Forsythe, Akron Zips Mens Basketball Clobber USC

Posted by Jonah Spoerndle on November 20, 2014

Akron moved to 2-0 on the early season as they cruised past USC 66-46. Pat Forsythe came up big for the Zips scoring 15 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. Freshman Noah Robotham continued his early season success as he scored 14 points and Kwan Cheatham was huge scoring 15 points grabbing 7 rebounds and dishing out 2 assists.


Nikola Jovanovic lead the Trojans in scoring with 11 points while also grabbing 9 rebounds. The Trojans were turnover prone as they finished the game with 16. They were also limited by the stifling Akron defense shooting 28.3% from the field and only hitting 2 3-pointers.


The Zips came into this game after crushing on UMBC 74-57. However, the real story of this young season is the loss of starting forward Demetrius Treadwell. Treadwell was suspended earlier this week and will reportedly be out the rest of his senior season.


Defense was key early for the Zips as they managed to jump out to a 18-9 lead with 13:35 left to play in the half. From that point on Akron managed to increase the lead to 12 by the end of the half leading 36-24.


Freshman Noah Robotham was the leading scorer at the half for the Zips with 11. Even with Treadwell out, Akron was still able to outrebound the Trojans 20-14. Cheatham was also big for the Zips in the first half scoring 10 points and grabbing 3 rebounds.


Akron came out on an 11-6 run to start the 2nd half, but the run was answered by USC on a 10-0. But the Zips could not be silenced as they responded with 8 staight points from Freshman Antino Jackson and a 19-4 run to close out the game.


The Zips dominated nearly the entire game leading for 38:39 of the 40:00 minutes of play. The Zips will move onto the next round where they will face off against the winner of the Miami (FL) vs Drexel matchup.

Aretha Franklin Queen of Soul…and Shade?

In a recent interview to publicize her latest, forthcoming album which is a compilation of diva classics, Aretha Franklin sat down for an interview. In the interview, she was asked about today’s biggest stars including Taylor Swift (first artist to sell over a million copies of her album in 2014) and Nicki Minaj (holds the current record for the most Billboard charting songs at one time (7)). In regards to swift all she had to say was she had “nice gowns” and to address Her Minajesty, “I have nothing to say about that.” Seems like Queen Aretha has no love for the young ones!

Kris Jenner Got Her Groove Back!

Posted by MoNetti on November 9, 2014

Kris Jenner celebrated her 59th Birthday in Las Vegas  with her new man, 33 year old Corey Gamble by her side on Friday night. Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend and baby daddy, Scott Disick was there and celebrated with the couple. The Birthday party was the officical public appearance of the two. The couple was spotted throughout the night taking selfies and being very affectionate. None of her daughters were present but in place of them were go-go dancers with cardboard pop heads of their faces. Does her daughters approve? Will they be walking down the aisle soon? Is Corey just a boy toy or the real deal? I’ll keep you posted.
