KENT, Ohio -- D.J. Cooper made two free throws with 55 seconds left and Ohio remained undefeated in Mid-American Conference play with a 69-68 victory over Kent State on Saturday night.

Ohio took a 60-52 lead -- its largest of the game -- when Nick Kellogg scored on a layup with 7:46 left in the second half. But the Bobcats had a tough time holding off Kent State, which kept the score close and eventually took a one-point advantage on Kris Brewer's layup with 1:14 remaining.

But Ohio (15-5, 6-0) pull ahead for good after two free throws by Cooper, who led the Bobcats with 23 points and five assists. Reggie Keely finished with 20 points and Kellogg added 10 points.

Ohio has won seven consecutive games.

Chris Evans scored 20 points and dished out seven assists with a game-high five turnovers for the Golden Flashes (11-9, 2-4), who have lost three straight.
