YOUNGSTOWN: The Golden Flashes were led by seniors Chris Evans, with 24 points, and Randal Holt, with 21, in their 85-78 overtime victory over the host Penguins (3-4).

Holt converted a series of clutch shots both late in the second half and in overtime to help cement the Flashes’ (5-2) victory, including an NBA-length 3-pointer with 3:18 remaining in overtime.

Evans finished with a double-double, grabbing 10 rebounds to go along with his team-high 24 points.

“Those two seniors have been great all year,” said Kent State head coach Rob Senderoff.

“They’ve led the way and everyone else has followed.”

The win capped a perfect 2-0 road trip that marked the first time seven of the players on the young Golden Flashes roster have played on the road.

“We are young, but I think our guys are starting to understand that as long as they play together and put winning above everything else, we have a chance to do some very good things this season,” said Senderoff.

The Flashes return home to face Princeton at 7 p.m. on Saturday.
