Zipping Along: Akron Among Four Schools Posting > 20 Wins Last 12 Seasons

The most ardent college hoops observer probably didn't realize Akron zips along as one of only four NCAA Division I schools posting more than 20 victories each of the past 12 seasons. Ohio State has an outside shot at becoming the fifth program in this category if the Buckeyes thrive down the stretch. After Memphis and Pittsburgh fell off the consecutive 20-win list two seasons ago, the Zips are joined by undefeated Gonzaga among the following more recognizable institutions with a look at their best and worst campaigns during these streaks:

School Years Coach(es) Best Record (Season) Worst Record (Season)
