    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Randal Holt scored 27 points and Chris Evans added 25 points and 14 rebounds as Kent State pulled away late in an 80-68 victory over Buffalo Wednesday night.

    Holt hit 5 of 5 from 3-point range and is now fourth on the Kent State (11-6, 2-1 Mid-American Conference) all-time list with 199 career 3-pointers, one shy of Armon Gates and current Golden Flashes' assistant coach Eric Haut.

    Buffalo (5-12, 0-3) trailed most of the game until a 13-4 run led to a 60-56 advantage with 9:29 left. The lead changed three times after that, last when Devareaux Manley scored five straight points to put Kent State ahead 69-66 with 4:42 left. The points started a 16-2, game-ending run for Kent State, with Buffalo held scoreless after Javon McCrea's two free throws with 1:59 left.

    McCrea made 15 of 15 free throws and led the Bulls with a career-high 33 points.
