Postgame Notes
Central Michigan 84, Ball State 81 (OT)
February 6, 2014
- Junior Crystal Bradford became the first player in program history to record multiple triple-doubles in her career with 26 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists. The triple-double is Bradford's second of the season and just the fifth in program history. 

- Bradford's 26 points moved her past Tracey Renken (1994-97) for seventh on CMU's scoring list with 1,403 career points. 

- Bradford played a career-high 45 minutes Thursday night and fatigue did not seem to be a factor as she scored 24 of her game-high 26 points in the second half and overtime. Bradford scored 12 of CMU's final 16 points in regulation to help erase the double-digit deficit. 

- Junior Jas'Mine Bracy posted her third-straight double-double with 20 points and 15 rebounds. Bracey now has nine double-doubles on the year and 15 in her career. 

- CMU improved to 10-0 in the MAC for just the second time in program history and the first time since the 1983-84 season when it went a perfect 18-0. The 10-game winning streak is the third longest in program history. 

- Head Coach Sue Guevara was 0-6 at Worthen Arena as the head coach of CMU entering Thursday night's contest and the Chippewas had lost 14 straight games at Ball State. CMU's last win at Ball State was on Feb. 23, 1998. 

- Junior Jessica Green scored 15 points for her 14th double-digit scoring effort of the season. Green is now just 48 points shy of reaching 1,000 for her career. 

- Should Green reach 1,000 points this season, the Central Michigan women's basketball program would become just the 10th in NCAA history to have four 1,000-point scorers on the same roster. 

- CMU trailed at halftime for the fourth time during Mid-American Conference play and its 19-point second half deficit was the largest it has overcome this season. The Chippewas won their third game this season when it trailed by at least eight points with under three minutes to play. 

- CMU won just its third game this season when being outrebounded by the opponent. The Chippewas are now 3-6 in those games and have been outrebounded by just two MAC opponents. 

- The Chippewas forced Ball State into 22 turnovers, including seven by the Cardinals' point guard Brandy Woody.
