BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Robby Collum scored 14 points last night and Western Michigan shook off the effects of an 11-day layoff and beat Virginia Tech 55-51 at Cassell Coliseum.
The Broncos (5-3), playing for the first time since Dec. 1, never led by more than four in the second half. They overcame poor shooting by forcing 24 turnovers and limiting the Hokies (5-5) to 3-for-16 3-point shooting for the game.
Steve Reynolds added 10 points for the Broncos, nine below his average. Western Michigan shot 34.5 percent from the field and was 11-for-20 from the foul line.
Carlton Carter led Virginia Tech with 12 points and 15 rebounds, his fifth double-double in six games. Terry Taylor and Brian Chase each scored 10.
