CLEVELAND (AP) Nick Kellogg had 20 points, including a key late three-point play, as Ohio defeated Miami (Ohio) 63-55 in a second-round game at the Mid-American Conference tournament Wednesday.

With Ohio up one point with 38 seconds left, Kellogg got behind the RedHawks' full-court pressure to score on a breakaway layup. He added a free throw for a 59-55 lead.

Javarez Willis, who scored 13 points, added two free throws and Kellogg another layup for the final eight-point margin, largest of the second half. Maurice Ndour added 12 points for Ohio.
