    AKRON, Ohio -- Zeke Marshall made all seven shot attempts en route to 17 points to help Akron hold off Princeton 62-58 Sunday night in a nonconference matchup.

    Nick Harney had 16 points and Alex Abreau added 10 for Akron, which won its fourth straight game.

    Akron (8-4) built a nine-point, 22-13 first-half lead but Princeton (5-7) rallied to tie it 27-all at intermission.

    The game remained close in the second half, as neither team led by more than six until Princeton took just its second lead of the half, 56-55, with 3:33 left. But Demetrius Treadwell and Marshall hit back-to-back layups and Akron held Princeton to just two free throws over the final 3 minutes to seal the victory.

    Akron converted 26 of 49 shots (53 percent) and posted its third straight game shooting over 50 percent from the field.

    Denton Koon led Princeton with 16 points and Ian Hummer had 13.
