AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Demetrius Treadwell had a double-double, Zeke Marshall turned in 21 points and Akron won its third straight Thursday when it rolled over Texas Southern 83-68 in a nonconference game.

Treadwell had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Zips (7-4) while Marshall added eight boards and five blocks. He entered averaging 3.9 blocks per game, fourth in the country.

Texas Southern (1-12) has lost 10 straight games for its second 10-game losing streak in two years.

Akron opened on an 11-0 run that spanned nearly five minutes and rolled to a 43-23 halftime advantage.

Omar Strong had 33 points, his highest output in a regulation game with the Tigers - he scored 39 in a double-overtime loss to Colorado on Nov. 27. Since that game, Strong is averaging 23.9 points. Thursday, the senior hit 7 of 18 3-point attempts.
