    BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Brett McKnight scored 15 points and Akron defeated Bowling Green 74-68 on Saturday.

    The Zips (22-8, 11-3 Mid-American Conference) outrebounded the Falcons 22-9, scored 17 second-chance points and 23 off the bench in the first half.

    Akron led 40-27 at halftime, and were able to overcome a 41-point second half by the Falcons (14-14, 6-9).

    Trailing by nine, Bowling Green used a 6-1 run late in the second half to pull within 63-59 on Dee Brown's jumper with 2:31 left.

    The Falcons pulled within four points three times, including 70-66 with 41 seconds to go.

    After Otis Polk's layup pulled Bowling Green within 70-66, Chris McKnight went 4-for-4 from the foul line to seal it for Akron. It was the 11th win in the last 12 against the Falcons, and seventh out of the last eight overall for the Zips.
