Zeke Marshall and Nick Harney scored 13 points each and Akron used a four-point possession late in the game to pull away for a 74-64 victory over Central Michigan on Saturday.

The Zips (14-7, 6-1 Mid-American) led 63-60 with 1:37 remaining when Quincy Diggs went to the free-throw line. Diggs made the first and missed the second free throw, but Marshall got the rebound and was fouled as he converted the follow-up. Marshall's ensuing free throw put Akron ahead 67-60, and the Zips hit 7 of 10 from the line down the stretch to secure the victory.

Derek Jackson scored 21 points to lead Central Michigan (7-13, 2-5). Trey Zeigler added 16 points and nine rebounds, and Austin McBroom had 14 points.
