KALAMAZOO, Michigan — Bryce Moore scored 24 points as Western Michigan upended Northern Illinois 83-69 on Saturday night.

Moore sank three 3-pointers in the first half to help Western Michigan to a 40-28 lead at the break.

Avery hit a 3-pointer early in the second half to extend the Broncos lead to 57-37 with 14:00 to play and they cruised to the win.

Aaric Armstead scored 15 points with seven rebounds and three assists for the Huskies (14-3, 3-1). The loss ends a seven-game winning streak for Northern Illinois.
