Northern Illinois beats Toledo with late rally, 71-66

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) Chuks Iroegbu’s layup with a minute to go gave Northern Illinois the lead and started a run of eight straight points by the Huskies in a 71-66 victory over Toledo on Tuesday night.

After Iroegbu’s basket, Marshawn Wilson scored on a breakaway dunk off an inbounds play and Travon Baker and Laytwan Porter added two free throws each. The last six points came during a span when Toledo’s Jonathan Williams was charged with three turnovers.

Baker finished with 23 points and Wilson had 10. Marin Maric added 16 points and 12 rebounds for his seventh double-double this season as the Huskies (14-2, 3-0 Mid-American) won their seventh straight game.

Nathan Boothe scored a career-high 30 points with Williams adding 21 for the Rockets (10-6, 1-2).

Toledo came in ranked second in the MAC in 3-point shooting percentage at 42.3, but made only 5 of 18 for 27.8 percent against the Huskies.
