Akron, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Demetrius Treadwell logged 17 points and 14 rebounds, as the Akron Zips used a late run to come from behind and defeat the Eastern Michigan Eagles, 52-48, in a Mid-American Conference showdown at James A. Rhodes Arena.

Nick Harney also tallied a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds for Akron (15-7, 7-2 MAC), winners of four of its last five contests.

For EMU (12-10, 4-5), Daylen Harrison and Darell Combs both scored 10 points.
