Bucknell 76, Kent State 60

So, Bucknell is darn good this year. Probably not Kent State's best game, but it may have made little difference.

The Flashes battled back well in the first half, erasing a double-digit deficit to take the lead briefly and be just down a point at halftime. But in the second half, KSU was profoundly outrebounded 18-8, Kent State grabbed just two offensive boards and the Bison shot nearly 60 percent.

Chris Evans, a scorching ball of fire this season (his season low was 14 points) got next to nothing: 2-for-12 shooting, no free throws and a total of five points and four rebounds. Devereaux Manley led the way with 15 points and Kris Brewer netted 10, both efficiently.

Now at 5-4, Kent State next plays Sunday at Xavier.
