Wild finish to Bowling Green’s overtime win over Kent State


Demajeo Wiggins’ tip-in with a little more than a second remaining in overtime gave Bowling Green an 84-83 overtime victory on the road at Kent State on Tuesday night.

The Falcons trailed 83-79 with 14 seconds remaining in the extra frame. A 3-pointer by Rodrick Caldwell cut the deficit to one. After forcing a turnover on the ensuing in-bounds pass alongside the sideline, Wiggins cleaned up a Caldwell miss with 1.3 seconds left, giving Bowling Green an 84-83 lead.

Wiggins finished with 16 points and eight boards. Caldwell matched him with a team-high 16. Jaylin Walker had a game-high 18 points off the bench in a losing effort.

Bowling Green and Kent State are both 5-6 in MAC play this season.
