Ypsilanti, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Tally and Karrington Ward each scored 13 points, as the Eastern Michigan Eagles cruised past the Toledo Rockets, 65-44, in Mid-American Conference play at the Convocation Center.

No other player reached double figures for the Eagles (15-10, 7-5 MAC), who turned in a superb defensive performance to notch their third straight win.

Julius Brown and Jonathan Williams had 13 points apiece to pace the Rockets (21-4, 9-3), who came into the game with wins in three straight and nine of their previous 10 outings.
