MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) Majok Majok had 14 points and 14 rebounds and Jesse Berry scored 20 Saturday to lead Ball State over Central Michigan 74-71.

Tyler Koch's layup with 3:13 left put Ball State up 60-52, and the Cardinals (5-22, 2-14 Mid-American) made 14 of 16 free throws from there to hold on for the win.

Chris Fowler had 26 points, nine assists and five rebounds for Central Michigan (10-18, 3-13). During the final 2 minutes, Fowler scored 11, including a pair of 3-pointers, to help the Chippewas close the gap while Ball State made its free throws.
