Ohio State Survives Scare To Down Kent State, 71-52, At St. John Arena

All it took was seven minutes.

Seven minutes for Kent State to turn what could have been a blowout victory for Ohio State into a tie game. After trailing 40-26 with 17:16 remaining, the Golden Flashes went on a 25-8 run to even the score at 48 points apiece with 10:30 left in Monday night's game at St. John Arena.

Luther Muhammad responded by hitting five free throws in a row, sparking a 17-0 run complete with a ridiculous alley-oop from Duane Washington Jr. to DJ Carton that ignited the crowd. By the time the Golden Flashes scored next, the 10th-ranked Buckeyes had the game under control, finishing it with a 71-52 win.
