AKRON, Ohio -- Zeke Marshall made all seven shot attempts en route to 17 points to help Akron hold off Princeton 62-58 Sunday night in a nonconference matchup.
Nick Harney had 16 points and Alex Abreau added 10 for Akron, which won its fourth straight game.
Akron (8-4) built a nine-point, 22-13 first-half lead but Princeton (5-7) rallied to tie it 27-all at intermission.
The game remained close in the second half, as neither team led by more than six until Princeton took just its second lead of the half, 56-55, with 3:33 left. But Demetrius Treadwell and Marshall hit back-to-back layups and Akron held Princeton to just two free throws over the final 3 minutes to seal the victory.
Akron converted 26 of 49 shots (53 percent) and posted its third straight game shooting over 50 percent from the field.
