    TOLEDO, Ohio -- Zeke Marshall scored 18 points and tied his own school record with nine blocked shots as Akron defeated Toledo 71-56 Wednesday night to extend its winning streak to 10 games for the first time in 40 years.

    The Zips (14-4, 5-0 Mid-American Conference), who won 14 straight in the 1972-73 season, jumped out to a 15-point lead, but went cold after Chauncey Gilliam's 3-pointer made it 30-14 at the 7:31 mark. Akron did not score again for more than 5 minutes en route to a 36-21 halftime advantage.

    After the Rockets (6-10, 2-3) closed to 40-32 with 15:48 remaining, the Zips hit five straight 3-pointers, three by Gilliam and two by Alex Abreu, to lead 55-39.

    Akron's Demetrius Treadwell had his second straight double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds, Gilliam added 12 points on 4-of-5 3-point shooting and Abreu finished with 11 points.

    Rian Pearson's 16 points led Toledo.
