KENT, Ohio -- Jaylin Walker tied a career high with 36 points, making seven 3-pointers, and Kent State rallied from a 17-point, second-half deficit to beat Toledo 87-85 in overtime on Tuesday night.
Marreon Jackson made two free throws with 41.3 to go to tie it at 85. But Walker sank a floater in the lane with 26.8 left and Toledo was off on two shots at the other end. Williamson was fouled at 7.2, missed the front end of a 1-and-1 and Jaelan Sanford was off on a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
It was Walker's second straight 30-plus game for Kent State (15-4, 4-2 Mid-American Conference) and the fourth of his career.
Willie Jackson made 1 of 2 free throws to give Toledo a 79-77 lead with 52.7 to go in regulation, but Walker tied it on a floater in the lane. The Rockets missed two shots on their next possession and Walker's three-quarters heave was short.
