Johnson, Akron beat E. Michigan 79-62 in MAC Tournament

CLEVELAND (AP) Isaiah Johnson had a double-double, Noah Robotham scored 19 points and No. 1 seed Akron beat Eastern Michigan 79-62 on Thursday to advance to the semifinals of the Mid-American Conference Tournament.

Johnson, the MAC player of the year, finished with 24 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks and Josh Williams scored 11 for Akron (25-7), which will play fourth-seeded Ball State in the semifinals on Friday.

Robotham hit a 3-pointer and Johnson converted a 3-point play during an 11-0 run that made it 30-21 with 2:10 left in the half and the Zips led the rest of the way. Ray Lee made back-to-back 3s to pull Eastern Michigan within four and, after a bucket by Johnson, Lee hit two free throws to make it 57-53 with five minutes to go. But Johnson scored four points and Williams hit two 3s during a 14-2 run over the next 2 1/2 minutes to push Akron's lead into double figures for good.
