Eastern Michigan routs Miami (Ohio) 94-69 behind Lee's 46

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) Raven Lee made nine 3-pointers and scored 46 points - both career highs - and Eastern Michigan beat Miami (Ohio) 94-69 on Tuesday night to snap a five-game skid.

Lee scored 27 points in the first half - matching the total scored by the entire RedHawks' squad - and the Eagles (11-11, 3-6 Mid-American) led 48-27 at halftime on 60-percent shooting.

The junior guard finished 11 of 16 from the floor and 15 of 16 from the free-throw line and Eastern Michigan made a season-high 13 of 23 from beyond the arc.

Lee's 46 points was one point shy of the school's single-game record of 47 scored by Gary Tyson in 1974 and his nine 3s tied Derrick Dial's school record set in 1998 against Marshall.

James Thompson IV scored 15 points and Ty Toney added 14 with five assists and four steals.

Chris Bryant scored a career-high 18 for the RedHawks (7-15, 1-8).
