AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) -- Kevin Warzynski had 23 points and Jay
Youngblood added 22 to lead Kent State to a 111-107 double-overtime
win over Buffalo on Wednesday night.

their last six games.

Calvin Cage poured in a career-high 37 points and Roderick
Middleton had 30 points for the Bulls (16-9, 6-8), who lost for the

Middleton's runner in the lane with 4.1 seconds remaining in
regulation tied the score at 81 and sent the game into overtime.
Kent State nearly won it at the buzzer, but DeAndre Haynes'
desperation 3-pointer rimmed out.

The Golden Flashes led 88-83 with 2:20 left in the first
overtime, but Cage's three-point play with 11.5 seconds to go
knotted the score at 93 and put the game into its second overtime.

Kent State finally iced it with a 9-4 run in the first 3 minutes
of the second overtime, capped by Haynes' 3-pointer.

Before the game, the Bulls added Chad Upshaw to their roster.
