MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -- Thomas Wilder scored 26 points, and Tucker Haymond added 20 with 15 rebounds as Western Michigan came from as many as 18 points down to defeat Central Michigan 91-82 in overtime in Friday night's regular-season finale. Western Michigan (13-18, 7-11 Mid-American Conference) dominated the extra period, winning the tip, opening on a 9-1 run and scoring 26 points, which ties an NCAA record for most points in an overtime (Vermont, 1998). Wilder, a sophomore, has been the leading scorer in conference games all season. He added 13 points on 15 tries from the foul line. Haymond was 7 of 10 at the line and the Broncos made 33 of 48 free throws on 28 fouls called on Central Michigan (17-14, 10-8). Braylon Rayson scored 26 points and Chris Fowler 23 for Central Michigan. No. 10 seed Western Michigan meets No. 7 Northern Illinois in the MAC tournament March 7. Central Michigan is No. 4 with a first-round bye.
