KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Shayne Whittington scored 12 points and pulled down 13 rebounds Wednesday night, helping Western Michigan build a big lead and cruise to a 79-56 victory over Toledo.

Hutcheson was making his 100th career start, the eighth Bronco to reach that mark.

Julius Brown scored 16 points for the Rockets (6-8, 2-1), who shot just 37 percent from the floor.
