Looking to get their first win at home, Central Michigan men's basketball took on the Bowling Green Falcons on Tuesday. 

With both teams hungry for a win, all efforts from both the Chippewas and the Falcons sent the game into a back and forth battle all the way through the final buzzer.

The Chippewas (4-13, 3-3) came out on top, beating the Falcons (11-11, 4-7) 78-74. The win is the Chippewas first win at home this season. 

The Chippewas high scorers were Cameron Healy and freshman Kevin Miller, both with 21 points. Miller had 12 assists and seven rebounds. It marked the first double-double of the freshman's career. 

The Falcons leading scorer Myron Gordon not only brought Bowling Green back in the game but also scored a game-high of 24 points. 

The Chippewas will face rivals Western Michigan on Thursday at 7 p.m.
