    TOLEDO, Ohio -- Justin Anyijong scored 17 points and Toledo shot 54 percent from the field to beat Eastern Michigan 69-57 on Saturday night, ending a nine-game losing skid.

    Anyijong came in averaging 8.1 points a game.

    Tyrone Kent added 13 points and Jonathan Amos 12 for the Rockets (3-14, 1-2 Mid-American Conference).

    The Rockets led 26-22 at the half and then hit 13 of their 21 shots from the field in the second half (62 percent).

    Tyler Jones made a free throw for Eastern (3-14, 1-2) at the 15:25 mark of the second half to cut Toledo's lead to 33-31, but the Eagles wouldn't score again for almost 6 1/2 minutes. The Rockets went on a 15-0 run -- Anyijong scoring six points -- to take command.
