KENT, OHIO -- Rock Island High School graduate and University of Missouri freshman B.J. McGhee remains alive after the first day of the Mid-American Conference wrestling Tournament at Kent State University.

McGhee lost to Central Michigan's Corey Keener 3-1 in sudden victory in his quarterfinal-round match. He came back to beat Kent State's Edilberto Vinas by a 4-2 count in wrestlebacks, sending him into today's consolation semifinals.

He will wrestle at noon today. A win in that match and another at 1:30 and he will place third in the MAC. McGhee has a 21-9 record to date.
