Akron vs Penn State

Akron 85, Penn St. 60

  •  

BAYAMON, Puerto Rico (AP) - Zeke Marshall had 17 points and six blocks, and Akron beat Penn State 85-60 in the fifth-place game at the Puerto Rico Tipoff on Sunday.

"If there is a better at-the-rim defender in the country, I haven't seen him yet," Akron coach Keith Dambrot said.

Carmelo Betancourt and Demetrius Treadwell had 10 points each for the Zips.

Marshall scored six points during a 13-3 run to open the second half that put Akron up for good.

"We came out with more energy. It felt like practice, honestly," Marshall said. "I'm pumped for the regular season."

Eleven of his 17 points came from the foul line. Marshall set a tournament record with 13 total blocks.

"It isn't the first time I've broke records and it won't be the last," Marshall said. "I don't understand why other people can't do it. It's that easy."

D.J. Newbill had 20 points for the Nittany Lions. Ross Travis had 11 points and 10 rebounds, but shot just 1 of 10 from the floor.
