Recap: Ohio vs. Akron

Athens, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Quincy Diggs came off the bench to score 20 points and grab seven rebounds as the Akron Zips took down the Ohio Bobcats, 83-80, in double-overtime Mid-American Conference action at the Convocation Center.

Demetrius "Tree" Treadwell netted 16 points on 7-of-19 shooting with eight rebounds for Akron (10-5, 2-0 MAC), while Pat Forsythe and Jake Kretzer each chipped in 11. Nick Harney scored 10 before fouling out of the contest. The Zips have now won four games in a row.

Maurice Ndour scored a game-high 25 points on 8-of-14 shooting and 9-of-10 from the free-throw line for Ohio (11-4, 1-1), adding six rebounds. Nick Kellogg contributed 19 points and Travis Wilkins had 14 on 4-of-5 shooting off the bench. The loss snaps a four-game Bobcats winning streak.
