    Akron 81, Toledo 79 (OT)

    AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- A 3-pointer by Toledo's Justin Ingram with 1 second on the clock sent the game to overtime, but his foul and two missed free throws in the final four seconds of the extra period let Akron escape with an 81-79 victory over the Rockets on Monday night.

    Romeo Travis had 21 points and 13 rebounds for Akron (14-7, 8-5 Mid-American Conference). Bubba Walther added 19 points and Rick McFadden had 18.

    Akron led 36-32 at halftime but needed to rally late in the second half to go ahead by three on a pair of free throws by Travis with 6 seconds left. Ingram's 3-pointer tied the score at 69.

    In overtime, a layup and free throw by Keith Tripplett put Toledo ahead 78-77 with 27 seconds left. But Akron's Travis scored on a layup with 15 seconds to go, and McFadden hit two free throws after Ingram's foul.

    After a foul by Joyce, Ingram missed two out of three free throws.

    Ingram and Tripplett finished with 16 points apiece for Toledo (12-11, 8-6), and Sammy Villegas had 11.
