Kevin Dukes scored 18 points to lead the Wildcats (1-4), Paul Scotland had 15 and Adrian Coleman 10.

Kent State led 67-63 with 2:14 to go on two free throws from Chris Ortiz, but the Wildcats' Scotland was fouled on a 3-point shot and made all three to close to 67-66 at 1:47. Alex Smith's layup gave Bethune-Cookman a 68-67 advantage with 1 minute remaining.

The Wildcats led 33-28 at halftime, but Kent State scored the first 10 points of the second half for a 38-33 lead.
