Balanced scoring leads Akron past Howard 69-52

Nov 22, 2009 - 6:16 PM DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.(AP) -- Nikola Cvetinovic and Chris McKnight scored 13 points apiece to lead a balanced attack in Akron's 69-52 victory over Howard on Sunday.

Anthony Hitchens and Brett McClanahan each added 10 points for the Zips (2-2), who led by as many as 29 before resting most of their starters at the Glenn Wilkes Classic.

Calvin Thompson scored 13 points to lead Howard (0-5). The Bison were coming off a 33-point effort Saturday against Georgia State and went more than eight minutes without a basket during the first half Sunday.

Howard rallied to get within 33-21 at halftime, but the Zips took control with a 17-4 run to open the second half that included two 3-pointers by McClanahan and one by Steve McNees.

Akron missed its first five 3-pointers of the game, but then hit seven of its next 11.
