Recap: Bowling Green vs. Akron

Bowling Green, OH (Sports Network) - Demetrius Treadwell registered a double- double of 10 points and 11 boards as the Akron Zips defeated the Bowling Green Falcons, 68-55, in a Mid-American Conference matchup at the Stroh Center to pick up their 12th consecutive victory.

Zeke Marshall led Akron (16-4, 7-0 MAC) with 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting, Nick Harney added 10 points, and Alex Abreu posted nine points and six assists. The win improved the Zips to 7-0 in league play for the first time since they joined the MAC in 1992-93.

Chauncey Orr tallied a game-high 16 points for BGSU (7-13, 2-5), which lost for the second time in a row. A'uston Calhoun contributed a double-double of 11 points and 11 boards, but went 2-of-13 from the field. Craig Sealey provided a spark off the bench with 10 points on 3-of-4 shooting from the floor.

Akron was not overwhelming in the opening stanza, connecting on just 40 percent of its field goal tries without a single trip to the free-throw line. However, the visitors held the Falcons to 18.5 percent shooting from the field to take a 28-17 lead into the break. Abreu knocked down both of his 3-point attempts in the first half to give Akron an early lift.

Although BGSU heated up to connect on 12-of-24 from the floor and convert 13- of-14 at the charity stripe in the second half, the Zips stayed in front by draining 57.1 percent of their field goal tries in the final 20 minutes of action.

Akron held a 40-31 edge in the rebounding battle and outscored the hosts, 17-9, in second chance points.

I really do try my best not to hate anyone, seeing as how that word can be thrown around rather easily, which is why it was so tough watching the Florida State-Louisville game on Thursday night.
