DETROIT (AP) - Kenny Carpenter scored 22 points and No. 8 seed Cleveland State defeated ninth-seeded Youngstown State 72-71 Friday night in a first-round matchup of the Horizon League Tournament.

The Vikings (10-22) advance to play top-seeded Northern Kentucky - which has a bye - in a quarterfinal game Saturday.

Carpenter made 1 of 2 fouls shots with 17 seconds left for 72-68 lead. Cameron Morse buried a 3-pointer just six seconds later to reduce the Penguins' deficit to a point.

Devin Haygood fouled Tyree Appleby with seven seconds left and he missed both foul shots. Haygood grabbed the rebound but Morse missed a layup attempt as time expired. Appleby finished with 14 points and Stefan Kenic and Jamarcus Hairston each scored 12.

Naz Bohannon shot 7 of 11 for the Penguins (8-24) and led Youngstown State with 16 points. Morse scored 13, Michael Akuchie 12 and Braun Harfield 11.
