  •  

KENT, Ohio (AP) Shayne Whittington scored 18 points and hauled in six rebounds as Western Michigan coasted past Kent State in a 75-59 win on Thursday night.

David Brown contributed 17 points, Tucker Haymond had 16 and Austin Richie 11 for Western Michigan (10-7, 3-2 Mid-American Conference), which hit 26 of 52 from the field in snapping a two-game losing streak.

Taking a 10-point advantage into the break, 34-24, the Broncos broke the game open with a 16-0 run early in the second half fueled by a layup, jumper and back-to-back dunks, all from Whittington. Western Michigan enjoyed a 42-32 rebounding advantage but struggled with 20 turnovers.

Kent State (11-7, 2-3) kept the game close through much of the first half but shot just 32 percent from the field.

Kris Brewer and Darren Goodson led the Golden Flashes with 10 points each.
