Amherst, NY-- Kent State (3-25, 1-14) scored a season-low nine points in the first half, putting them in a deficit too big to overcome at Buffalo (10-18, 8-7) on Sunday afternoon.
The Flashes shot just 17-percent in the first half, making only four field goals. Buffalo, on the other hand, shot 39% in the opening 20 minutes, including hitting three shots from beyond the arc to take a 31-9 lead into the locker room.
Kent State improved in the second half, making ten field goals and getting to the charity stripe 20 times, where they connected 14 free throws. But, the early damage was too much as the Bulls did not slow down on way to a victory. The game was the last road game in regular season play for Kent State.
Ashley Evans led the way in scoring for the third consecutive game. She finished with 12 points and shot 5-for-6 from the free throw line. Trisha Krewson followed her with 11 points.
The Bulls shot 49-percent in the game and made ten three-point shots. Mackenzie Loesing led Buffalo with 17 points and four steals. Margeaux Gupilan, Karin Moss and Cherridy Thornton each netted 11 points.
Kent State wraps up the regular season at home on Wednesday as they host Bowling Green. Tipoff is set for 7:00 pm
