Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Kendrick Perry scored 31 on Monday night including Youngstown State's final 12 points to fuel a comeback win over Cleveland State 67-66.

Perry made two free throws with 38 seconds left to bring the Penguins within 66-64. Cleveland State committed its 21st turnover on the following inbounds pass, and Perry converted a three-point play 10 seconds later to put Youngstown State up for good.

In the final sequence, Cleveland State inbounded the ball under its own basket, but Perry's defense forced Bryn Forbes to miss a difficult shot.

Youngstown State (11-8, 2-2 Horizon League) trailed 61-55 when Perry ignited his team's 12-5 run on a three-point play with 6:06 to go. It was Perry's fifth 30-point game of the season. Ryan Weber and Bobby Hain added 10 points each.

Forbes led the Vikings (10-8, 2-2) with 17 points, Trey Lewis scored 15 and Marlin Mason had 10.
