ATHENS, Ohio -- Quincy Diggs scored 20 points, including the final basket in both overtime sessions, as Akron beat Ohio 83-80 on Sunday night.

Diggs scored nine points during the extra time for Akron (10-5, 2-0 MAC).

Diggs made the deciding basket of the game with 34 seconds left. Ohio's Stevie Taylor then missed a 3-pointer, but Akron's Nyles Evans missed both free throws with 14 seconds left giving Ohio a final chance. Ohio (11-4, 1-1) got two 3-pointers off in the final 10 seconds, but Nick Kellogg missed them both.

In the first overtime, Diggs made a 3-pointer for Akron to cut its deficit to 70-69 with 12 seconds left.
