    DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Wright State rookie Alex Kock's put-back with four seconds left led the Raiders to a 61-60 victory over UIC on Wednesday night at the Ervin J. Nutter Center.

    Wright State (9-8, 6-1 Horizon League) led Illinois-Chicago (12-7, 3-4) 34-25 at the half and was ahead 53-44 with 11:04 remaining when the Flames went on a 12-2 run to move ahead of Wright State 56-55 at the 5:10 mark. DaShaun Wood put Wright State back in the lead with a jumper and Seth Doliboa added another jumper to put the Raiders ahead 59-56 with 2:58 left to play.

    Cedrick Banks then hit a jumper and added a layup to put UIC back in front 60-59 with 1:08 remaining. With the Flames still leading by one with 16 seconds left, senior Martell Bailey missed the front end of a 1-and-1, setting up the Raiders' final possession, which Kock scored.

    UIC still had the final shot, a three-pointer by senior Aaron Carr (14 points), which rimmed out as time expired.

    Doliboa led scoring for Wright State with 17 points and Drew Burleson added 14.

    Banks was the leading scorer for UIC with 16 points.
