What a fantastic finish. Akron and Ohio beat up on each other for the better part of 440 minutes, wearing each other down until one finally cried "uncle". Unfortunately for the 'Cats they were the ones to tap out as late-game fatigue and plenty of mental mistakes saw Ohio unravel down the stretch as Akron fed off the chaos and sprinted away with an 83-77 win.
