    KENT, Ohio -- Justin Greene scored 23 points and Michael Porrini added 19 to lead Kent State to a 92-87 win over Bowling Green on Saturday night.

    Randal Holt finished with 17 points and Chris Evans had 14 for the Golden Flashes (12-4, 2-1 Mid-American Conference), who have won two straight games. Carlton Guyton had 10 assists.

    Kent State led by as many as 19 points in the second half, but Bowling Green would not go away easily without an attempted rally. The Falcons cut the lead to 76-70 on a layup by Torian Oglesby with 2:20 left in the game.

    But Greene scored on a layup then he and Porrini each made two free throws to give the Golden Flashes enough cushion with an 11-point lead.

    Scott Thomas scored 23 points for the Falcons (7-9, 1-2). Jordan Crawford had a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds.
