MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) Terrell Brown scored 23 points and Paul Egwuonwu added 13 with 13 rebounds as Montana State used a late surge to put away Central Michigan 59-54 Friday night.

Brown helped spark a run with a four-point play and two jumpers as Montana State jumped ahead to take a 50-42 lead with 3:25 remaining.

The Chippewas (2-3) cut the deficit to three after Braylon Rayson hit a layup, but the Bobcats made nine of their last 10 free throw attempts in the final minute to hold the lead.

Brown was 7 of 12 from the field and hit a trio of 3-pointers.

Rayson led Central Michigan with 15 points, and Chris Fowler and Josh Kozinski each had nine.
