KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) Tucker Haymond scored 17 points and Anthony Avery Jr. had nine points and 12 rebounds to help Western Michigan beat San Diego 74-62 on Tuesday night.

Thomas Wilder scored 13 points and Drake LaMont finished with nine points, eight rebounds and four assists for Western Michigan (1-1).

San Diego (0-2) shot 50 from the field and made 6 of 11 from 3-point range in the first half to take a 34-28 lead into the break. But the Toreros fell cold in the second as the Broncos found their collective stroke.

After a 3-pointer by Duda Sanadze to open the second gave the Toreros a nine-point lead, they went six-plus minutes without a field goal. Western Michigan used a 13-1 run during that span to take a 41-38 lead and never trailed again.

San Diego made 10 of 30 field goals, including 3 of 17 3-pointers, after halftime.

Marcus Harris led San Diego with 13 points.
