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.
