Edwin & Kent State beat Ball State, 100-90, in record setting night
The Golden Flashes were a perfect 31-for-31 from the free throw line, setting a new MAC record for most free throws made in a perfect night. The previous record for the conference was 25, and the previous programme record was 13. The Flashes were three short of the NCAA record.
Five players scored in double figures for Kent State, including a 14-point effort from Virgin Islands’ baller Deon J. Edwin.
"We've been a good free throw shooting team all year," said head coach Rob Senderoff. "Tonight was very exceptional, and was a once in a lifetime sort of thing. 31-for-31 is the MAC record, so that's not going to happen every night."
Jimmy Hall scored 20 points against the Cardinals, and led the Golden Flashes with nine rebounds and five assists without a turnover. Jaylin Walker was the team's leading scorer at 21 points, finishing 3-for-6 from beyond the arc. Kevin Zabo had his best game for Kent State, finishing with 18 points on 7-for-8 shooting with four rebounds.
