    LAS VEGAS -- Reggie Johnson scored 21 points and pulled down 12 rebounds to lead Miami past Akron 69-61 on Thursday in the final round of the Las Vegas Holiday Hoops Classic.

    The Hurricanes (10-3) went 4-0 in the Classic.

    Malcolm Grant added 17 points for Miami, highlighted by an 11-of-12 effort from the free throw line. Durand Scott added 12 points and nine rebounds.

    Brett McKnight led the Zips (7-5) with 20 points. Brett McClanahan had 11 points and Nikola Cvetinovic 10 for Akron, which finished 6 of 27 from 3-point range and 2-1 at the Classic.

    Miami, which was 1 of 11 from 3-point range, extended its 38-22 halftime lead to 57-35 with 10:08 left on two Grant free throws.

    Akron responded with a 16-0 run. But the spurt ended after Johnson's dunk with 4:51 left caused the clock above the basket to shut down. It never was fixed.
