    Western Michigan 76, Kent State 60

    KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) -- Levi Rost scored a game-high 25 points, leading three Western Michigan players in double figures, and the Broncos extended their home-winning streak to 24 with a 76-60 win over Kent State Wednesday night.

    Rost hit 66.7 percent (8-of-12) of his shots, including seven 3-point baskets. Ben Reed and Joe Reitz each added 13 points for Western (11-3, 4-0 Mid-American), which led by as many as 29 points.

    Kevin Warzynski led Kent State (10-5, 3-2) with 10 points, but that was 3.3 below his average and he was held to one rebound. The Golden Flashes shot just 36.1 percent and committed a season-high 17 turnovers.

    A 17-0 first half run put Western ahead early in the game. The Golden Flashes did not score for 11 consecutive possessions.

    By the end of that stretch, two consecutive 3-pointers by Rost gave the Broncos a 25-8 lead with 8:50 left in the first half.

    Kent State, which entered the game with a league-best 118 3-pointers, hit just three of its 21 attempts.
