Derek Jackson’s basket got Kent State within 69-66 with 30 seconds left. Then Clarke made four straight free throws to seal it.

Richaun Holmes added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Bowling Green (12-16, 6-9 Mid-American Conference), while Spencer Parker had 12, 10 coming from the free throw line.

Kris Brewer had 14 points for Kent State (15-13, 6-9) and Devareaux Manley had 11. The Golden Flashes were held to 34.9 percent shooting and were outrebounded 44-31.
