Bayamon, PR (Sports Network) - Zeke Marshall scored 17 points, leading four players in double figures, as he guided the Akron Zips to a decisive 85-60 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions in the fifth-place game of the 2012 Puerto Rico Tip-Off at Coliseo Ruben Rodriquez.

Jake Kretzer scored 11 points for the Zips (3-2), followed by Demetrius Treadwell and Brian Walsh who both tallied 10 points. Marshall, who made all three of his field goal chances and was 11-of-15 at the free-throw line, was also credited with six blocked shots.

The Nittany Lions (2-2) were paced by D.J. Newbill who tallied 20 points in the setback. Ross Travis registered a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds, but he shot only 1-of-10 from the field on the afternoon. Brandon Taylor chipped in 10 points off the bench.

PSU led by as many as eight points in the first half, the squad shooting 5- of-9 behind the three-point line, but had to settle for just a 36-32 edge at the break.

The Zips put together a 31-7 scoring run over the first 10 minutes of the second half in order to cruise to the win.
