Hayden Hoerdemann contributed 12 points, David Brown added 10 and Western Michigan emptied its bench to get points from 13 different players in its final nonconference game.

Western Michigan was 27 of 60 from the floor and a near-perfect 20 of 21 from the foul line.

Siena Heights, an NAIA school, shot just 25 percent from the field, and hit only five of its 29 attempts from beyond the arc.

Christian Covile led the Saints with 20 points and eight rebounds, the team's only player in double figures.
