    MACOMB, Ill. (AP) -- David Nurse and David Jackson each scored 13 points to lead Western Illinois to a 65-50 win over Indiana-Purdue-Fort Wayne on Thursday night.

    The game was tied at 26 at the half but Western Illinois (9-10, 4-4 Summit) pulled away after the break on 52 percent shooting, compared with 32 percent shooting for IPFW (7-12, 4-4).

    David Dubois added 10 points and 10 rebounds and James Washington chipped in 10 points for the Leathernecks, who outrebounded the Mastodons 38-28.
