AKRON, Ohio — Antino Jackson scored 13 points, Isaiah Johnson added 12 and Akron celebrated its senior night with a 70-58 victory over Ohio on Friday night.

The Zips (18-11, 9-7 Mid-American) used a 13-2 run midway through the second half to stretch a two-point lead to 55-42 with 7:04 left. Ohio (9-18, 4-12) never threatened from there.
