Kent State vs Ohio

Ohio 78, Kent St. 75


ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Stevie Taylor's 3-pointer with 13 seconds remaining in overtime gave Ohio the lead as it defeated Kent State 78-75 Saturday for its fourth straight victory.

On Kent State's ensuing possession, Nick Kellogg deflected a pass, and the ball came to Walter Offutt, who had 17 points for the Bobcats (19-6, 10-1 Mid-American Conference). Offutt tipped it to Kellogg for a final layup with 2 seconds left.

Ohio led by 15 points, 46-31, early in the second half before the Golden Flashes (14-12, 5-7) rallied.

It was Ohio's second narrow victory over the Golden Flashes in their first season under former Kent State coach Jim Christian. The Bobcats won 69-68 on Jan. 26.

D.J. Cooper's seven assists give him 884 in his career, tied for 15th all-time with Jim Les, who played at Cleveland State and Bradley from 1981-86.

Chris Evans' 18 points and 14 rebounds led Kent State.
