Kent St. rides Williamson’s scoring burst to beat Ohio
C.J. Williamson scored seven of his 14 points in a 90-second span that was part of a 10-0 Kent State (16-8, 6-5 Mid-American Conference) run. Williamson made two foul shots, hit a 3-pointer and threw down a dunk for a 64-50 lead with 11:26 left. Simons buried a 3 during the run and the Golden Flashes led by double figures the rest of the way.
Jason Preston had 20 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds for the Bobcats (12-13, 4-8). But Preston also committed seven turnovers as Ohio finished with 18 total. Lunden McDay scored 14 points and Sylvester Ogbonda and Ben Vander Plas 12 apiece.
