Recap: Akron vs. Central Mich

Akron, OH (Sports Network) - Alex Abreu scored 15 points and handed out seven assists as the Akron Zips used a late run to pull away from the Central Michigan Chippewas at Rhodes Arena, 68-56, to stay perfect in Mid-American Conference play.

Demetrius Treadwell shot 6-of-8 from the floor for 12 points for Akron (18-4, 9-0 MAC), which has won 14 games in a row, the longest streak for any Division I team this season.

For CMU (9-13, 2-7), Kyle Randall shot 8-of-16 from the field with four 3- pointers to pace all scorers with 22 points. The Chippewas extended their season-long losing streak to five games.

Akron won the rebounding battle, 33-26.
