The University of Akron men’s basketball team is dominating the Mid-American Conference this season and last night notched their 29the straight win at home.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says the Zips, led by veteran coach Keith Dambrot, have changed their approach this season. 

The University of Akron has won 20-plus games for 12 seasons in a row, one of just a handful of Division I schools to accomplish that, according to Pluto.
