Toledo, OH (Sports Network) - Darius Paul recorded a double-double with a game-high 28 points and 12 rebounds as the Western Michigan Broncos held on to defeat the Toledo Rockets, 65-62, in Mid-American Conference action at Savage Arena.

David Brown added 15 points off the bench for the Broncos (18-9, 9-4 MAC), but he was the only other player in double-figures as Western Michigan moved to a three-game winning streak.

For the Rockets (13-12, 8-5), Reese Holliday was two rebounds shy of a double- double with 16 points off the bench. Julius Brown contributed 15 points and four assists. Rian Pearson put up 14 points and seven boards as Toledo snapped a two-game winning streak.
