M E N ’S BASKETBA LL
Akron upsets arch-rival Kent at home
AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Derrick Tarver scored 33 points, includ-
ing a layup with 1:52 left that put Akron ahead for good in its
64-61 win over Kent State on Sunday.
Tarver made 13-of-18 shots from the field for the Zips (13-12,
7-9 Mid-American Conference).
His layup gave Akron a 58-56 lead. Dru Joyce III then hit four
foul shots and Tarver sealed the win with
two foul shots with 3.4 seconds left.
Brian Bedford and DeAndre Haynes
missed 3-pointers in the final seconds
for the Golden Flashes (20-5, 13-3) that
would have tied the score.
While Tarver hit 72 percent of his
shots, his teammates made just 9-of-28
shots from the floor (32 percent). Rick
McFadden was the next highest scorer with seven points.
Tarver scored seven points in a 10-0 run late in the first half
that gave the Zips a 30-25 lead. His 3-pointer with 17:34 left put
the Zips ahead 34-26 before Kent State went on 8-0 run capped
by a 3-pointer by Eric Haut to tie the score at 38.
Neither team had more than a five-point lead the rest of the way.
Haut scored 17 points for the Golden Flashes, who hit 37 per-
cent of their shots from the field. John Edwards had 10 points.
