Both teams were looking for their first win in the Mid-American Conference and Toledo's 57.1 percent (28 of 49) overall shooting proved too much for CMU.
Toledo (13-2, 1-1) led 35-27 at halftime and opened the second on a 7-2 run. From there, the Rockets cruised until Chris Fowler's layup capped a 7-0 run for CMU which brought the Chippewas within 68-62.
Toledo called timeout shortly afterward and responded with its own seven-point run to put the game comfortably out of reach.
