Akron vs Marshall

Akron 67, Marshall 51

  •  

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Nikola Cvetinovic had 14 points and Chauncey Gilliam 12, leading five Akron players in double figures, as the Zips beat Marshall 67-51 Sunday and had no problems finding the basket despite the game being delayed an hour due to a pregame rim adjustment.

Alex Abreu, Zeke Marshall and Demetrius Treadwell each scored 10 points for the Zips (8-6), who used a second-half run to break a 27-all tie at intermission for the win. It was their fifth win in six games.

Two Akron players found their rim to be quite inviting early in the second half, as Gilliam hit a midrange jumper and a 3 while Marshall had six points, all on layups, in a 14-5 run. The Zips led by nine points with 14:51 left to play and never looked back.

Shaquille Johnson and Damier Pitts scored 11 points apiece to lead the Thundering Herd (9-4).
