BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Justin Johnson and Pancake Thomas each scored 15 points and Damari Parris' free throw with two seconds left lifted Western Kentucky over Ohio 67-66 on Wednesday night.
Johnson's free throw with 1:51 to play knotted the game at 66.

Later, Anton Waters' jumper capped a 12-2 run for Western Kentucky (5-7) to put the Hilltoppers up a point. Neither team led by more than two the rest of the way.
