OXFORD, Ohio (AP) -- A put-back dunk by Quade Milum and a pair of game-clinching free-throws by Cedrick Middleton gave Akron a 56-52 win over Miami of Ohio in the final seconds on Tuesday night.

The dunk by Milum, who had six points, came with 36 seconds remaining. The free throws with one second remaining by Middleton, who led the Zips with 18 points, iced the victory.

Chris McKnight contributed 10 for Akron (19-7, 9-4 Mid-American Conference), while Nick Dials had eight. The Zips shot 46.5 percent for the game, including 4-of-6 from behind the 3-point line during the second half.

Tim Pollitz led the RedHawks (13-12, 7-6) with 18 points, while Kenny Hayes added 13 -- his 12th straight game in double figures.

Akron broke an eight-game home winning streak for Miami.
