    ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Omni Smith's jumper with 4 seconds left gave Kent State a 73-71 victory over Ohio on Saturday.

    Ohio's Bobcats (17-10, 8-5 Mid-American Conference) led by 11 points with 14 minutes remaining but the Golden Flashes (18-9, 10-3) tied the game at 71-71 on a Rodriguez Sherman free throw with 58 seconds left.

    Ohio ran time off the clock until committing a turnover. The Golden Flashes worked the ball around before Smith hit the game-winner. It was Kent State's first lead since early in the opening half.

    Leon Williams missed Ohio's final shot with 2 seconds left.

    Smith led Kent State with 23 points, with Mike Scott scoring 14 points and adding 15 rebounds. Sherman had 10 points.

    Sonny Troutman and Williams each scored 17 points, Whitney Davis 14, Jerome Tillman 12 and Bubba Walther 11 for the Bobcats.
