Omaha, NE (Sports Network) - Terell Parks posted 19 points and 11 rebounds, and the red-hot Western Illinois Leathernecks claimed an 89-74 win over the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks in Summit League action at Ralston Arena.

The Leathernecks caught fire in the second stanza, as they shot 66.7 percent from the floor and went 19-of-22 at the foul line over the final 20 minutes to claim the double-digit victory.
