The Akron Lightning was a team in the International Basketball League's inaugural 2005 campaign. The team played home games at Stow-Munroe Falls High School. Boasting a lineup of primarily local players, the Lightning finished with a dismal 2-15 record, the worst in the 17 team league. The team's only player to crack the league's top 25 scorers was Jason Edwin, who tied for 13th with 21.8 ppg. Later in the season, for away games, the team had to use a roster of players local to their opponent's area in order to save money.[1] The team was suspended after the season and the team eventually became what are now the Akron Quakers.
