Akron powers past Bowling Green 80-66, into MAC championship

CLEVELAND (AP) Akron fed the Big Dog on its way to the Mid-American Conference championship.

Isaiah Johnson bulled his way for 23 points and the top-seeded Zips advanced to the MAC Tournament title game with an 80-66 semifinal win over No. 12 seed Bowling Green on Friday night.

Johnson, a burly 6-foot-10 junior called "Big Dog" by his teammates, scored 11 straight points during one stretch in the second half as the Zips (26-7) moved into the final for the eighth time in 10 years.
