Ivey hits late jumper as Akron upsets Bowling Green 81-79

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) Jimond Ivey drove into the middle of the lane to hit a floater and Lucas Smith added a free throw in the final seconds as Akron upset Bowling Green 81-79 in Mid-American Conference action on Tuesday night.

The teams swapped the lead throughout with Justin Turner nailing a jumper to put Bowling Green ahead 79-78 with 27 seconds remaining. Ivey followed with the floater to retake the lead. Bowling Green's Dylan Frye missed a 3-point attempt, Demajeo Wiggins grabbed the offensive rebound but Ivey blocked his shot and Smith came away with the ball. He was fouled and split a pair of free throws with 2 seconds left.

Daniel Utomi led Akron with 29 points, making 9 of 10 from the line and draining four treys. Malcolm Duvivier added 14 points and Ivey finished with 12 for the Zips (12-15, 5-10), who garnered their first road win of the season.

Frye drained 5 of 7 from long range to finish with 24 points and Turner added 15 with six assists for Bowling Green (16-12, 7-8), which has dropped two straight but remains in second place behind Buffalo in the MAC East standings.
