Zips stun Flashes, advance to MAC Tourney semifinals

Deji Ibitayo's two free throws gave the Akron Zips a one-point lead with :39 left, and Kris Brewer's back-to-back attempts to win it for the Kent State Golden Flashes were off the mark, as the Zips rallied from a 13-pt deficit to stun the Flashes 53-51 at Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday and advance to the MAC Tournament semifinals.

Reggie McAdams had pulled the Zips within one with 1:45 remaining, and Kent State wouldn't score again, as the Zips completed the comeback.

Jimmy Hall led Kent State with 14 points, while Pat Forsythe led Akron with 12.
