AKRON 68, OHIO 63
AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Zeke Marshall scored 17 points to lead Akron
in a 68-63 win over Ohio on Saturday, tying a season high with
the Zips' fourth consecutive win.
Nick Harney and Brett McClanahan added 10 points apiece for the
Zips (11-6, 3-0 Mid-American Conference), who have put together
separate four-game winning streaks on either side of a 76-75
overtime loss to VCU on Dec. 29.
Ohio led 30-29 at the break, but Akron rallied late to turn
things around. The Zips were down 57-55 with 4 1/2 minutes to
play, but Alex Abreu scored all of his five points in just over
two minutes to help spark a Zips run. His 3-pointer and jumper
fueled a 9-0 Akron run, and the Zips held on from there.
D.J. Cooper led the Bobcats (13-4, 1-2) with 13 points. Ohio has
now lost three of four on the heels of a season-high nine-game
