Akron vs Cleveland State

Cleveland St. 69, Akron 66

  •  

CLEVELAND (AP) - Jeremy Montgomery made a 3-pointer with 22 seconds left to lift Cleveland State to a 69-66 win over Akron on Saturday.

Cleveland State seemed to have control of the contest, leading by as many as 12 points in the second half. But the Vikings (10-1) ended up losing their lead and trailed by two points with 1:48 left after Akron's Demetrius Treadwell made a free throw.

Despite Akron's rally, Cleveland State would not allow the Zips (3-5) to score any more. Montgomery, who finished with seven points, tied the game at 66-66 on two free throws, and then made his only 3-pointer of the game to put the Vikings ahead for good.

Trevon Harmon led Cleveland State with 16 points, while Tim Kamczyc and D'Aundary Brown each finished with 13.

Zeke Marshall scored 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds for Akron. Treadwell had 15 points and Quincy Diggs added 11.
