MEN'S NEWS ...Teal Bunbury, the son of former Canada international Alex Bunbury, scored two goals to lead No. 1 Akron to a 3-0 win over Penn State for the Zips' 16th win in a row. Bunbury scored in the fifth minute when he redirected Kofi Sarkodie's cross into the goal and the struck from 30 yards in the 24th minute. Bunbury has 14 goals, all in the last 11 games. Forward Darlington Nagbe put the game out of reach in the 62nd minute with his eighth goal of the season.

"I thought we came out flying and jumped on them early but then coasted a little," said Akron coach Caleb Porter. "We have not played teams recently that have been able to punish us when we let our guard down, but Penn State's that type of team. And from here on out, all the teams we play are going to be that type of team."

* TOP 25 ACTION. The seven other Top 25 teams in action on Wednesday were perfect (two other games involving No. 6 Connecticut and No. 21 St. John's were postponed because of bad weather):

-- Alex Dixon recorded No. 3 North Carolina's first hat trick since 2005 to highlight the Tar Heels' 7-0 win over Stetson. The sophomore scored three times in under seven minutes.

-- No. 6 South Florida extended its home unbeaten streak to 28 games -- the longest such streak in the nation -- with a 1-0 win over DePaul on Zak Boggs' free kick on the half hour.

-- No. 7 UC Santa Barbara earned its seventh shutout in its last eight games with a 2-0 win over Cal State Northridge. The Gauchos remained tied for first in the Big West with Cal Poly, a 3-0 winner over UC Riverside.

-- No. 9 Louisville tied a school record for wins, improving to 12-2-2 with a 3-1 win over Cincinnati. All three goals came off set pieces, beginning with Simeon Steward's first goal of the season.

-- Freshman Andrew Wenger scored twice to lead No. 17 Duke to a 6-0 win over Presbyterian in a game originally scheduled for Tuesday.

-- Amani Walker scored three goals and added an assist on Irving Garcia's goal to lead No. 19 UC Irvine to a 4-1 win over Cal State Fullerton.

-- No. 25 UAB moves into first place in the Conference USA with a 3-0 victory over South Carolina on goals by Anthony King, Two-Boys Gumede and Babayele Sodade.

Wednesday Results

* INDIANA ENDS SKID.Indiana snapped a three-game losing streak in style with a 2-0 victory over Evansville on goals by Lee Hagedorn and Nick Blevins. The victory put the Hoosiers, who have never finished with a losing record, back over .500 at 8-7-1.  "We fought hard and stuck with a game plan," said IU coach Mike Freitag. "Maybe in other games we over extended ourselves and made mistakes. Tonight I thought we played within ourselves and did everything we needed to be successful.

* STREAKING SEAHAWKS.One of the hottest teams in the South is UNC Wilmington, which extended its unbeaten streak to eight games with a 2-0 win at James Madison on second-half goals by juniors Tyler Wheaton and Daniel Roberts. The win, the Seahawks' first ever in Harrisonburg, kept them tied for first place in the CAA with Northeastern, a 2-1 winner at Delaware. It was also Coach Aidan Heaney's 100th career win.
