The Penguins (14-13, 5-7) went 20-for-30 from the line on 23 Chicago fouls, and Perry and Shawn Amiker hit 5 of 6 free throws in the last half-minute, fending off a run from Chicago's Kelsey Barlow.

In the final 20 seconds Barlow hit a long jumper -- initially ruled a 3 -- and a 3-pointer. He also launched a 25-footer just after the buzzer that clanked off the rim. The Flames (5-21, 0-12) led by as many as 11 in the first half.

Bobby Hain added 14 points and a career-high 17 boards for Youngstown State, which ended a four-game skid.
