  1. Lathan was a freshman and did not play in this game. That is James Reid at the left, the teams leading rebounder. He got into early foul trouble and played barely ten minutes. But William English stepped up with 19 points and 11 rebounds to fill the void.

  2. Is there any way to get more pictures from this game? My dad played for Akron (number 55) and talks about how smooth Earl was. I would love to get some action photos of the game, if possible.
