Ypsilanti, MI (Sports Network) - Jalen Ross scored 13 points, leading three players in double figures, as the Eastern Michigan Eagles claimed a 58-52 win over the Central Michigan Chippewas in Mid-American Conference play at the Convocation Center.

Jamell Harris added 11 points and six rebounds, followed by Glenn Bryant with 10 points and five blocked shots for the Eagles (8-9, 1-2 MAC) as they snapped a four-game slide.

The Chippewas (8-8, 1-2), losers of two straight and three of the last four, were paced by Olivier Mbaigoto who recorded a double-double with 18 points and 14 rebounds, followed by Kyle Randall and Finis Craddock with 13 and 12 points, respectively.
