Ohio's comeback against Akron falls short 88-86

Jackson scores 35 in Zips' victory

ATHENS – Loren Christian Jackson scored 35 points, and Mid-American Conference leading Akron held off Ohio 88-86 on Saturday at The Convo.

Jordan Dartis paced the Bobcats with 21 points, with Ben Vander Plas adding 18 points despite early foul trouble, but Ohio could not overcome 13-of-23 3-point shooting – including 7 of 9 by Jackson – by one of the nation’s top outside shooting teams.

Jackson’s jumper with 1:53 remaining gave the Zips an 86-79 lead, but the Bobcats (10-10, 2-5 MAC) were able to make a game of it, beginning with a Vander Plas dunk. After a miss by Akron, Dartis drained a 3-pointer after Ohio’s third offensive rebound of the possession to make it 86-84 with about 40 seconds to go.

AMHERST, N.Y. – Jeenathan Williams scored a go-ahead basket inside with 15 seconds left, and Buffalo overcame 55 combined points from Ben Vander Plas and Jason Preston in a 76-73 victory on Tuesday night at UB Arena.
