KENT, Ohio -- Randal Holt made a pair of free throws with 18 seconds left in overtime to snap a 62-62 tie and Kent State held off Drexel for a 66-62 win in the teams' season opener Friday night.

Holt, the Golden Flashes' leading scorer a year ago, scored 17 points, including another pair of free throws with three seconds left to lock up the victory.

After Drexel jumped to an early overtime lead, Kent State tied the contest at 59-59 on Darren Goodson's layup, then took the lead on a Kris Brewer free throw.

Chris Evans followed that with two free throws, only to have Drexel tie the game 62-62 on Chris Fouch's 3-pointer, setting up Holt's winning freebies.

Fouch netted 24 points and made 6 of 12 3-pointers.

Evans, who led all scorers with 21 points, sent the game into overtime with a jump shot with 31 seconds left.
