Cardinals can't put together complete game in loss to Akron

  Ball State Men's Basketball could not produce a complete game in its 88-79 loss to Akron. At the half, the Cardinals held a six-point lead. However, the script flipped in the second half when the Zips outscored the Cardinals 58-43 in the second half. Whitford liked what he saw in that first half but thinks the issue concerns the complete game as a whole.
