Recap: Toledo vs. Central Mich

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.

The Rockets hit 3-of-5 shots from the field and 9-of-10 from the free-throw line in the extra session to pull out the win. Brown hit all six of his attempts from the charity stripe in overtime including the pair that put the game out of reach with a second remaining.
