    AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Nate Linhart scored 12 points to lead Akron to an 80-61 victory over visiting Eastern Michigan on Saturday night.

    Jeremiah Wood and Nick Dials added 10 points a piece for the Zips, who went on an 18-2 run to begin the second half and open up what had been a close game.

    Akron (16-5, 6-2 Mid-American) shot better, rebounded better and took better care of the ball to beat Eastern Michigan, which suffered from cold shooting throughout the game. The Zips shot 57.7 percent from the field, including 61.5 percent from behind the 3-point line, during their red-hot second half.

    Tyler Jones led the Eagles (7-13, 3-5) with 17 points, all from 3-point shots and free throws. Jarred Axon added 14 points and Carlos Medlock contributed 11.

    Eastern Michigan shot only 33.3 percent for the game, including just 29.4 percent from behind the 3-point line.
