    KENT, Ohio -- Nick Kellogg scored 19 points as Ohio opened Mid-American Conference play with a 59-53 win at Kent State on Wednesday.

    Kellogg made four free throws in the final 39 seconds to help the Bobcats (11-3) hold off the Golden Flashes.

    Devareaux Manley had 13 points and Mark Henniger 12 for Kent State (9-5).

    Miami led 26-19 at the half but Kent State regrouped to go up by four midway through the second half but, shortly after, the Bobcats went on a 15-4 run for the victory.

    Travis Wilkins hit a 3-pointer at 6:08 to put Ohio up for good, 49-46. Maurice Ndour followed with a fast-break dunk off a feed by Javarez Willis. Ndour got loose inside again at 2:21 to make it 53-46.

    That cold spell wasn't unusual as Kent State shot just 28.3 percent, including 4 for 22 (18.2 percent) on free throws.
