Toledo, OH (Sports Network) - Julius Brown scored 21 points and hit a pair of crucial free throws to earn the Toledo Rockets a 76-72 overtime victory over the Central Michigan Chippewas in a Mid-American Conference thriller at Savage Arena.

Brown also contributed nine assists and seven rebounds for Toledo (6-7, 2-0 MAC) which has won four of its last five. Rian Pearson dropped in 20 points and Dominique Buckley added 13 points.

Kyle Randall had a game-high 24 points as the only player in double figures for Central Michigan (8-7, 1-1) which had won two of its previous three.

Central Michigan led 29-26 at halftime despite shooting just 37.5 percent from the field by outscoring the Rockets from beyond the arc (15-12) and the free-throw line (6-0).

Although the Chippewas shot 54.2 percent in the second half they found themselves trailing 50-47 with a little less than seven minutes to play. A 3-pointer from Randall evened the game up at 50-50 in one of five ties in the last six minutes including the 60-60 stalemate at the end of regulation.
