BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- Scott Thomas scored 28 points, including hitting eight 3-pointers, to lead Bowling Green past Morehead State 73-60 Saturday.

Dee Brown added 19 points and Jordon Crawford had nine and 12 rebounds for the Falcons (14-12). Both Brown and Crawford hit three 3-pointers for Bowling Green, which outshot the Eagles 53.8 percent (14 of 26) to 35.7 percent (5 of 14) from long range to win the Bracket Busters contest.

The Eagles led 11-9 less than five minutes into the game, but Crawford, Brown and Thomas all hit 3s to help fuel a 21-9 Falcons run. They led the rest of the way, taking a 14-point advantage at halftime and holding on despite being outscored 31-30 in the second half.

Ty Proffitt had 18 points to lead Morehead State (15-14) and Drew Kelly added 12.

The Falcons rebounded after a loss in their last contest ended a season-high four-game winning streak.
