BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Jamal Crook scored 17 points and Aleksejs Rostov scored 11 of his career-high 16 points in the final seven minutes as Western Kentucky routed Brescia 74-46 Saturday night.

Leading 23-22, Crook made a layup at the 6:36 mark, sparking an 11-3 run to close out the half.

Western Kentucky then opened the second half with a 16-2 spurt. Brescia didn't hit its first two-point basket of the stanza until Myron Christian's layup with 9:11 remaining.
