Kent State beats Buffalo in Barn Burner

The Kent State Golden Flashes and the Buffalo Bulls played till the very end Thursday night, but in the end it was Kent State that left Quicken Loans Arena with a two point win.

Kent state was led by senior Chris Evans. Evans was on fire for most of the night, and scored 25 points. Randal Holt aided with 17 points of his own.

The Flashes started the second half down by three, but was able to fight back time and time again. They covered Buffalo's Will Regan well, which caused Tony Watson to be the primary deep ball threat. Though he came through often, he could not push his team past the #4 ranked Flashes.

Javon McCrea had to sit out nearly seven minutes because of foul trouble in the first, yet he still finished with 20 points on the night. He is going to have one heck of a senior season.

Kent State will battle #1 Akron tomorrow at 6:30

Battle Of The Bands

This battle was won by the Buffalo Bulls. The Bulls pulled their record even at 2-2 for the tourney because they gave it their all. They continued to chant and encourage their team throughout the rough periods of the game, and may have had a big impact in how Buffalo performed tonight. It was very well done.
