Recap: Central Mich vs. Idaho State

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - A jumper by Kyle Randall with time running out made all the difference as the Central Michigan Chippewas captured a thrilling 54-52 win over the Idaho State Bengals as part of the Basketball Travelers Classic at the Huntsman Center.

Randall made just two of his nine field goal attempts in the meeting, finishing with eight points for the Chippewas (3-2) in the victory. Blake Hibbitts and Olivier Mbaigoto made a significant impact off the bench as they tallied 12 and 11 points, respectively, followed by John Simons with 10 points as he made good on 3-of-5 from three-point range.

The Bengals (0-5) were paced by Chris Hansen who posted 12 points, the only player to score in double figures for winless ISU. Tomas Sanchez and Melvin Morgan contributed with nine points apiece and while they combined for nine of the team's 11 assists, they also accounted for seven of their 11 turnovers as well.

Idaho State moved out to a 5-0 lead early in the first half and led by as many as seven in the period, but CMU put together a 12-0 run midway through the frame to assume the lead which turned into a 26-25 edge at the break. Hibbitts led the way in the first half as he recorded nine points on 3-of-4 shooting from beyond the arc.

In the second half the Chippewas made good on a mere 8-of-23 shots from the floor, but Randall stepped up when it counted the most in order to bring home the win.

Central Michigan survived despite shooting only 10-of-22 at the charity stripe. The hosts did defend the glass rather well though, winning the battle of the boards by a 38-23 margin and allowing just two offensive rebounds to the Bengals.
