For the first time in 14 days Central Michigan men's basketball took the court against the Akron Zips. The Chippewas came up short of the Zips 60-56 in McGuirk on Tuesday. 

The Chippewas (2-13, 1-3) started strong against the Zips (13-5, 6-2) until fouls late in the first half sent the Zips to the line, sending CMU in a game of catch up. 

Harrison Henderson scored back-to-back three pointers in the second half to bring the Chippewas within two after being down 11. Despite all efforts by the Chippewas making it a two-point game with 30 seconds remaining, it wasn't enough to come out on top. 

Guard Cameron Healy led the Chippewas with 18 points and Ralph Bissainthe was close behind with 11. Bissainthe and Brian Taylor had seven rebounds.  

The Chippewas will travel to DeKalb to take on Northern Illinois on Sat. at 4 p.m.
