    MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -- Robbie Harman tied a career high with 18 points as Central Michigan defeated Western Michigan 72-68 Tuesday night.

    Harman shot 5-for-7 from 3-point land, as the Chippewas (13-15, 8-7 Mid-American) hit 10 3-point field goals in the win.

    Central Michigan made just four of its first 21 field goal attempts, allowing Western Michigan (18-11, 11-4) to jump out to a 23-11 lead with 6:17 to play in the first half.

    The Chippewas answered late in the opening half, finishing with a 14-2 run to even the score at 25-25 at halftime.

    The Broncos took the lead early in the second half, but the Chippewas went on a 17-3 run midway through the final half to establish a 44-34 lead that they would never relinquish.

    Giordan Watson had 17 points for Central Michigan, while Jordan Bitzer added 13 points and six rebounds.

    David Kool had 24 points to lead the Broncos. Shawntes Gary had 20 points, and Joe Reitz added 10.
