Tuesday, Nov 27, 2012

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP)—Jordon Crawford knocked down a career-high five 3-pointers en route to a career-best 26 points as Bowling Green held off Detroit 70-65 Tuesday night.

Crawford, who stands at just 5-foot-6, made 9 of 16 shots and entered the game as the sixth highest scorer (16.2 points) in the Mid-American Conference.

Bowling Green (3-3) held a commanding 33-19 lead with four minutes left in the first half but Detroit used an 11-1 run to close the gap to 34-30 at halftime. The Falcons have not trailed at halftime all season.

Detroit (2-3) cut the deficit to 61-59 behind a Ray McCallum layup at the 4:25 mark and trailed 63-61 with 1:39 left in the game. The Titans would get no closer, however, as Bowling Green hit seven free throws over the final minute to put the game away.

McCallum led Detroit with 25 points and seven rebounds.
