David Brown nailed a game-tying three pointer with one second remaining in regulation to send the game to overtime, and the Western Michigan University men’s basketball team defeated the Wyoming Cowboys 75-67 to advance to the semifinals of the College Basketball Invitational.

It was the second straight overtime victory for WMU in the tournament.

Four players scored in double digits for the Broncos. David Brown scored a team-high 17 points and Shayne Whittington recorded 16 points, ten rebounds and four blocks. Nate Hutcheson scored 12 and Brandon Pokley added 11.

Larry Nance Jr. led the Cowboys with 19 points and eight rebounds.

The Broncos held the Cowboys to 40.7 percent shooting from the field and 17.6 percent from beyond the arc. They out rebounded Wyoming 35-28 and outscored their bench 21-0.

WMU will join Wright State, Santa Clara and George Mason in the CBI final four, which begins Wednesday night.
