Final Score: Toledo 73, Central Michigan 69

Mount Pleasant, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - J.D. Weatherspoon finished with 17 points and six rebounds as the Toledo Rockets edged the Central Michigan Chippewas, 73-69, in Mid-American Conference action at McGuirk Arena.

Justin Drummond contributed 15 points and three steals for the Rockets (25-5, 13-4 MAC) as they notched their fourth win in five games. Julius Brown chipped in 12 points.

Chris Fowler scored 15 points and handed out six assists for CMU (10-19, 3-14). Austin Stewart added 14 points, Braylon Rayson had 13 points and Blake Hibbitts chimed in with 11 points. The loss was the third in a row for the Chippewas.

Toledo connected on 57.7 percent of its field goal attempts in the opening 20 minutes of the contest en route to a 37-32 lead at the intermission. The Chippewas kept it close despite hitting on only 1-of-10 shots from 3-point range in the first half.

CMU heated up to sink 53.8 percent of its shots from the floor after the break. After the Rockets scored on their first possession of the second half, the Chippewas went on a 13-2 run to claim a 45-41 lead at the 15:12 mark. Toledo took back control and Drummond scored five consecutive points to give it a 69-59 advantage on the scoreboard with just over three minutes left to play. The hosts cut the deficit down to two points on three occasions in the final minute, but Drummond put it out of reach with a pair of successful conversions at the charity stripe just before the buzzer.

Despite the loss, the Chippewas outscored Toledo, 38-26, in the paint.
