AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Malcolm Duvivier hit a career-high seven 3-pointers and finished with 24 points and six assists, Jimond Ivey also scored 24 points and Akron beat Division II Concord University 86-49 on Friday night.

Duvivier, a graduate transfer from Oregon State, and Ivey combined for 14-of-23 shooting. Daniel Utomi added 18 points and 10 rebounds for Akron (7-5).

Ivey hit a 3 to open the scoring and the Zips never trailed, using runs of 10-2 and 11-0 before scoring 13 of the final 15 first-half points to take a 44-16 lead into the break. Concord trailed by at least 28 throughout the second half.

Tommy Bolte, the only Concord player to score in double figures, had 15 points on 4-of-13 shooting. The Mountain Lions made just 18 of 66 (27 percent) from the field, including 4 of 20 on 3-pointers.
