    BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Otis Polk's layup with 47 seconds left put Bowling Green up by a point, and the Falcons held on to beat Kent State 67-66 Thursday night.

    Polk's layup made it 66-65, and a free throw by Erik Marschall gave Bowling Green a two-point lead. A free throw by Kent State's Chris Singletary with 3 seconds remaining narrowed the lead to 67-66, but he missed the second shot and a chance to send the game to overtime.

    Bowling Green led 34-31 at halftime, but there were 12 lead changes in the second half, including a layup by Singletary that put Kent State ahead 65-64 with 1:32 to play. But that was the last field goal for the Golden Flashes.

    Nate Miller led Bowling Green (16-11, 9-4 Mid-American Conference) with 16 points. Brian Moten had 14, Joe Jakubowski had 11. Polk and Darryl Clements added 10 apiece.

    Jordan Mincy paced Kent State (16-12, 8-5) with 19 points. Al Fisher had 15 and Singletary finished with 13.
