Athens, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - David Brown poured in a game-high 23 points to lead the Western Michigan Broncos to a 73-63 victory over the Ohio University Bobcats in a Mid-American Conference showdown at the Convocation Center.

Brown shot 8-of-17 from the field, including 4-of-10 from 3-point range for WMU (17-8, 10-3 MAC), winners of six straight. Connar Tava stuffed the stat sheet with 18 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals, Shayne Whittington tallied a double-double with 11 points and 11 boards and Austin Richie scored 10.
