YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) Brandon Nazione scored a career-high 23 points, shooting 10 of 14 from the field, to lead Eastern Michigan past Detroit 88-73 Monday night.

After Anton Wilson's 3-pointer tied the score for Detroit at 40 with 15:58 remaining, Eastern Michigan (8-4) used a 15-4 run over the next four minutes to seize control of the game. Raven Lee's 3-point play and Tim Bond's layup made it 51-43 with 13 minutes left.

James Thompson IV's seven-game streak of double-doubles in points and rebounds came to an end as he finished with 10 points and four rebounds. The last EMU player to complete the feat was George ''Ice Man'' Gervin who had 11 straight during the 1971-72 season.

Josh McFolley led Detroit (6-5) with 19 points.
