DENVER (AP) — Felix Von Hofe scored a career-high 28 points and Eastern Washington snapped a three-game losing streak, beating Denver 74-58 on Sunday.
Von Hofe made eight 3-pointers and grabbed six rebounds. Venky Jois scored 26 points with 16 boards and Austin McBroom added 18.
Eastern Washington (6-6) was down by two midway through the first, but a nine-point spurt — including a pair of 3-pointers by Von Hofe — put the Eagles up by seven. An 8-0 run to end the half gave Eastern Washington a 43-32 advantage at the break. Von Hofe had six 3-pointers before intermission, good for 22 points.
The Eagles scored seven of the first eight points in the second half to stretch the lead to 17. Denver got it to eight twice midway through the second half, but Eastern responded both times with 3-pointers. Later, back-to-back 3s by McBroom pushed it back to 14 with 3:45 left.
Denver (8-4) was led by Joe Rosga with 23 points.
