    MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. -- Andre Coimbra scored 22 points, including the go-ahead basket with 27 seconds left, to give Central Michigan a 70-67 victory over Illinois-Chicago on Friday night.

    Derek Jackson scored 14 points, Austin McBroom 12 and Trey Zeigler 10 for the Chippewas (5-5), who ended a three-game losing streak in their first home game in 31 days.

    Daniel Barnes' 20 points led the Flames (3-7), who have lost five of six. Hayden Humes added 16 points, and Darrin Williams had 13 points and nine rebounds.

    Central Michigan shot 54 percent (28 of 52), including 43 percent (6 of 14) from 3-point distance.

    Paris Carter's free throw gave Illinois-Chicago a 67-66 lead with 53 seconds left.

    But Coimbra hit a layup 26 seconds later for a 68-67 Chippewas edge, then stole the ball with 4 seconds to go to preserve the victory. McBroom's two free throws provided the final margin.
