Central Michigan took an 8-7 lead with 14:21 to go in the first half. It was short lived as Ball State’s Ishmael El-Amin nailed a 3-pointer 17 seconds later. Then, 30 minutes passed. It wasn’t until then that the Chippewas (19-8, 8-6 MAC) regained the advantage. They kept it for the remaining three and a half minutes to escape with a 64-57 win over the Cardinals (14-13, 5-9 MAC).
