CHICAGO (AP) - Quinton Pippen scored a career-high 28 points, including five 3-pointers, to lead Chicago State to an 81-74 win over Missouri-Kansas City on Saturday.

Chicago State (10-12, 5-3 Western Athletic Conference) took the lead midway through the first half on a Matt Ross dunk that made it 10-9 and never trailed again, though the Cougars had to quell a second-half UMKC rally to cement the win.

Pippen, nephew of NBA hall of famer Scottie Pippen, was 7 of 10 from the field and a perfect 9 of 9 from the free throw line. Clarke Rosenberg contributed 19 points, Nate Duhon added 11 and Eddie Denard 10.

UMKC (7-15, 4-5) rallied in the second half with a 19-4 run that tied the game at 52 on a Martez Harrison jumper but couldn’t capture the lead as the Cougars then pulled away.

Harrison led the Kangaroos with 27 points.
