CLEVELAND (AP) — Jason Carter had 19 points and 12 rebounds, Kenny Kaminski hit the go-ahead jumper with seven seconds left and No. 2 seed Ohio beat Toledo 67-66 on Thursday night in the Mid-American Conference Tournament.
Jaaron Simmons scored 24 points and Kaminski finished with nine points and three steals for Ohio (20-10), which will face sixth-seed Kent State or No. 3 seed Buffalo in the semifinals Friday.
Simmons made a layup to give the Bobcats a 64-61 lead with 1:57 to play but, after each team missed a 3-pointer, Nate Navigato's 3 with 48 seconds left tied it. Jonathan Williams then made a steal and his layup 20 seconds later put seventh-seeded Toledo up 66-64. Carter made 1 of 2 free throws and, after Stevie Taylor Jr. missed the front end of a one-and-one, Kaminski's jumper capped the scoring. Williams missed a layup and Jordan Lauf's put-back attempt was off the mark in the final seconds.
Williams finished with 18 points and Lauf scored 12 for Toledo (17-16). Taylor had nine points, 10 rebounds and five assists.
