Down 64-49, the Chippewas went on a 23-6 surge to seize a 72-70 advantage with 5:00 to play. The Chippewas then pulled out to a lead that reached 10 points with 48 seconds remaining.
The Chippewas are scheduled to face Northern Illinois on the road on Jan. 28. The Huskies are 1-5, 0-1 MAC.
The win capped a week for the Chippewas that began with a three-point grind-it-out win on Wednesday at Northern Illinois, and it lifted CMU to 15-3, 7-0 MAC. The Chippewas play host to rival Western Michigan on Saturday, Jan. 27 (1 p.m.).
CMU sophomore Erin Howard and freshman Quiara Wheeler led a big day for the women’s throwers, winning the shot put and weight throw, respectively, and establishing personal bests in the process.
