The oddsmakers set the bar high, but Toledo and N. Illinois didn't disappoint and broke past the 159 point over/under on Tuesday. The Rockets enjoyed a cozy 89-73 win over the Huskies. The score was all tied up 38-38 at the break, but Toledo was the better team in the second half.

Meanwhile, after a string of four wins, Bowling Green's good fortune finally ran out on Tuesday. They took a 90-84 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Golden Flashes.

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as the two teams are some of the highest scoring teams in the league.
