    Associated Press

    CLEVELAND -- Anton Grady scored 14 points and blocked Kendrick Perry's jumper at the buzzer to save Cleveland State's 70-69 overtime victory over Youngstown State on Tuesday.

    Perry was fouled with 5.3 left and made both free throws. Cleveland State turned the ball over on the inbounds play, giving Youngstown State one last shot. But Perry's fade-away jumper in the paint was blocked by Grady.

    Youngstown State's Ryan Weber tied at game at 60 with a 3-pointer from the corner with 2:54 remaining. Neither team would score again in regulation. Youngstown State had two chances to win it inside of 3.7 seconds, but Kamren Belin missed a shot in the paint and Bobby Hain's tip-in was off the mark.

    Bryn Forbes led Cleveland State (20-10, 11-4 Horizon League) with 15 points. The Vikings clinched a No. 2 seed in the conference tournament.

    Perry and Weber had 17 apiece for Youngstown State (15-15, 6-9).
