KENT, Ohio -- Randal Holt scored 17 points and hit five treys to become Kent State's career 3-point leader as the Golden Flashes defeated Eastern Michigan 77-62 Saturday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.
Holt's fifth 3-pointer, No. 211, came with 11:34 remaining, pushing him ahead of Trevor Huffman (1998-2002) on Kent State's all-time list. He shot 5 of 10 for the game.
The Golden Flashes (12-10, 3-5 Mid-American Conference) made 37.5 percent from long range (9 of 24) against the Eagles' 2/3 zone, including 41.7 percent (5 of 12) in the second half.
Leading 32-26 at halftime, Kent State opened the second half with a 10-0 run, capped by back-to-back 3s by Holt, and eventually led by as many as 21.
Derek Thompson came off of the bench to score 17 points for Eastern Michigan (10-11, 3-4).
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
