YPSILANTI, Michigan — Spencer Parker scored 21 points with a key rebound late, and Bowling Green held off Eastern Michigan's second-half rally for an 84-79 victory on Saturday.

The Falcons led 67-49 with 9:43 remaining before Raven Lee scored 20 of his team-high 29 points during a 28-10 Eastern Michigan run to tie it at 77-all.

Antwon Lillard answered for Bowling Green, finishing with a dunk off Zack Denny's missed field goal attempt and the Falcons had a two-point lead.

Lee missed two 3-point attempts and made two free throws, but the Falcons shot just 3 of 6 from the line to make it 82-79 with 12 seconds left. Lee's 3-point attempt rimmed out, and Parker grabbed the board then made two free throws to seal it.

Denny finished with 20 points for Bowling Green (12-5, 3-1 Mid-American).

James Thompson IV scored 21 points with 14 rebounds, and Ty Toney added 18 points for Eastern Michigan (10-7, 2-2).
