Akron 88, Ohio 81

  •  

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Demetrius Treadwell scored 21 points and Jake Kretzer came off the bench with a career-high 19 as Akron extended its winning streak to 19 games, the nation's longest this season, by defeating Ohio 88-81 in overtime Wednesday night.

The Zips (23-4, 13-0 Mid-American Conference) overcame a 21-3 first-half Ohio run that put them in a 34-16 hole.

Akron had a 15-0 run of its own for a 49-45 lead 6:05 into the second half, but the Bobcats (20-8, 11-2) didn't fold. Jon Smith's layup for Ohio in the final second of regulation sent it to overtime.

Kretzer, who was 4 for 4 in the second half, all 3-pointers, and 6 of 6 overall, began overtime with two free throws and Akron never looked back.

Zeke Marshall and Alex Abreu scored 16 each for Akron.

D.J. Cooper scored 26 points for Ohio. Walter Offutt added 15 points and 10 rebounds.
