DeKalb, IL (Sports Network) - David Brown netted a team-high 13 points as the Western Michigan Broncos completed a 71-34 rout of the Northern Illinois Huskies in Mid-American Conference action at the NIU Convocation Center.

Brown came off the bench making 2-of-4 from beyond the arc to help the Broncos (10-8, 2-2 MAC) collect a victory for the second time in a row. Shayne Whittington was one point shy of a double- double as he grabbed 10 boards.

For the Huskies (3-13, 1-3), Kevin Gray tallied 13 points and five rebounds but was the only player in double-figures as NIU fell to a three-game losing streak.

WMU opened up the contest on a 14-6 run. The Broncos made 47.4 percent of their shots from the floor including 5-of-10 from long-range, while holding the Huskies to a mere 7-of-25 shooting from the floor in the opening 20 minutes to take a 31-20 lead into the intermission.
