Kool, Gary lead Western Michigan to MAC win
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP)—Western Michigan got 16 points apiece from David Kool and Shawntes Gary in a 53-45 victory over Eastern Michigan on Saturday.
The Broncos (4-1, 7-11 Mid-American) have won four of their past five games and have beaten the Eagles in 15 of their past 17 meetings.
Brandon Bowdry and Antonio Green had 12 and 9 points, respectively, for Eastern (1-4, 3-16), which has lost 10 of its past 11 games.
Western Michigan broke open a close game with a 9-0 run midway through the second half to go in front by 14 points. The Eagles could get no closer than four points down the stretch.
Eastern Michigan associate head coach Derrick McDowell filled in for head coach Charles Ramsey, who missed the game with what school officials called a “benign case of vertigo.”
