DEKALB -- David Brown scored 26 points, hitting 5 of 8 from 3-point range, as Western Michigan held on for a 74-71 win over Northern Illinois on Sunday.

Western Michigan (14-8, 7-3 Mid-American) led by as many as 16 in the second half and was up by 12 with less than 6 minutes to play but Northern Illinois went on an 11-1 run to come within 71-69 with 2:04 left.

Missed free throws by Western Michigan gave Northern Illinois (10-12, 4-6) chances to tie the game in the waning seconds but the Huskies missed a pair of 3-pointers, including a potential game-tying 3 at the buzzer by Aaric Armstead.

Shayne Whittington added 15 points and Connar Tava scored 12 for Western Michigan, which shot 52.8 percent from the field and has now won nine straight over Northern Illinois.

Jordan Threloff led the Huskies with 16 points.
