    Akron led by as many as 13 points in the first half and took a 36-30 lead into the break. Armon Bassett, who tied his career high with 25 points, scored six of Ohio's first nine points in the second half to help tie the score at 39. The Bobcats built a four-point lead that dwindled to 57-56, then the Zips used a 9-2 run to pull ahead for good.

    Bassett, who was 9-for-10 from the free throw line, hit the second of two foul shots with 27 seconds left to draw within 65-62, but Brett McKnight hit two free throws to clinch the win.
