Akron 56, Bowling Green 55


BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Nick Harney made a layup with 1 second left to lift Akron over Bowling Green 56-55 on Wednesday night.

The Zips (10-6, 2-0 Mid-American Conference) fell behind 55-54 after Cameron Black's layup with 12 seconds to go. Black, who was fouled on the play, missed the ensuing free throw.

Akron didn't lead until the final shot as the Falcons (7-8, 1-1) scored 17 points off 14 turnovers.

The Zips shot just 37.5 percent in the first half, and trailed 26-20 at the break. They then went 12 of 24 from the field in the second half, winning their sixth straight in the series. It was the first time in the past three games Akron has turned the ball over more than eight times.

Harney finished with 12 points and Nikola Cvetinovic added 11 for the Zips.

Bowling Green was led by Black and Dee Brown with 10 points each.
