Akron held Youngstown State to 33 percent shooting en route to the Zips' second consecutive 14-point win, 67-53.
Nate Linhart played an active game, and it showed statistically. He scored 15, grabbed nine rebounds and volleyball spiked one Penguin shot into the scorer's table.
The Penguins tied the game at 33, but the Zips responded with a 7-0 run.
Akron will play at Toledo on Wednesday. I will preview the game tomorrow.
