CLEVELAND (AP) Jalen Avery scored 23 points, including two free throws in the closing seconds, and Kent State never trailed in its 83-79 win over Cleveland State on Saturday night.

Antonio Williams had 18 points, CJ Williamson added 16 and Mitch Peterson scored 13 for Kent State (1-0).

Tyree Appleby scored 11 points, including three 3-pointers, during a 12-2 run that made it 55-all - the first tie of the game - with 12 minutes to go.
