Middle Tennessee vs Akron

Akron 82, Middle Tennessee 77

  •  

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Jake Kretzer scored all eight of his points in overtime to help Akron stave off Middle Tennessee 82-77 Sunday in a nonconference victory.

After a dunk by Akron's Zeke Marshall brought the Zips (4-2) even with the Blue Raiders (5-2) at 72-all, Kretzer hit the first of his two 3-pointers, putting Akron ahead for good.

Kretzer hit another 3 with 1 minute left in the overtime to go ahead 80-76, then hit two free throws with 4 seconds left to ensure victory.

With 14 seconds left in regulation, Middle Tennessee's Raymond Cintron was fouled attempting a 3-pointer and hit all three free throws to square the score at 70. Alex Abreu got off a buzzer-beating jumper for Akron but missed, sending the game to overtime.

Abreu led Akron with 19 points and seven assists.

Cintron finished with 22 points and teammate Marcos Knight tallied 21.
