DETROIT (AP) — DuShawn Brooks scored 24 points and made two key 3-pointers in the final 1:55 to lead Youngstown State to a 64-61 victory against Detroit on Thursday night.

Brooks’ first shot behind the arc put the Penguins (5-1, 1-0 Horizon League) down by one point. With 1:05 to play, he hit another 3-pointer to give them a 61-59 lead, and Kendrick Perry protected the cushion with three free throws in the last 17 seconds.
