Kent State men’s basketball: Golden Flashes clip Northern Illinois 75-74 to snap three-game skid

KENT: Kent State entered Tuesday night as a team in desperate need of something to go its way.

Two key contributors have been out with injuries, and the Golden Flashes had lost three consecutive games by double digits. The momentum from a hot start to conference play was long gone.

On Tuesday, the Flashes finally seemed to be putting together a positive night, before they nearly gave it away. Coach Rob Senderoff’s quick decision to not call a timeout and instead rush the ball down the court led to Galal Cancer hitting two free throws with 7.5 seconds left to give Kent State a 75-74 win over Northern Illinois.

For a team that was 0-3 since Xavier Pollard was lost after foot surgery and Jaylin Walker was unable to return due to a foot sprain, this was the first exhaling moment in nearly two weeks.

“Great win for us. We needed it,” Senderoff said. “Proud of the guys for finding a way to get this one done.”

The Flashes (16-8, 7-4) led by double digits late in the second half and appeared to be cruising behind Jimmy Hall’s double-double (11 points, 12 rebounds). Then, things unraveled.

Leading 73-66 with just over a minute remaining, Chris Ortiz tossed up a transition alley-oop pass that Deon Edwin couldn’t slam home. A dunk there — or KSU running about 25 extra seconds off the clock — would have just about sealed the game.

Instead, NIU’s Aaric Armstead buried a 3-pointer from the corner to make it 73-69 with 1:07 left. The Flashes then failed to in-bound the ball and turned it over. That mistake was converted into another 3-pointer by Armstead less than 10 seconds later. All of a sudden, a commanding lead was down to 73-72.

“What was going through my head was that I can’t believe Chris Ortiz threw the lob to Deon and we missed the dunk,” Senderoff said. “Should he have pulled the ball out? Maybe. Should Deon have made the dunk? It was a perfect pass. If we pull it out there and run some clock, maybe this doesn’t happen.”

Kellon Thomas (11 points, three assists) created space at the other end but missed a 15-foot jumper, giving NIU its first chance to take the lead in nearly 20 minutes of play. Khaliq Spicer blocked an initial attempt from Marin Maric, but Travon Baker responded by nailing a deep jumper to put the Huskies on top 74-73 with 15 seconds left.

The Flashes had two timeouts remaining but chose to quickly run up the floor with the ball in Cancer’s hands, something that likely wouldn’t have happened had Pollard and Walker been available. Cancer drove to his left, drew a foul and hit both free throws.

“I glanced over at the bench and coach was telling me to attack,” said Cancer, who finished with 13 points and six rebounds. “I was trying to make a play, be aggressive at the rim.

“Coming from Cornell, I’ve been in that situation. It was something I’m definitely capable of. When [Pollard] and [Walker] went down, I understood I’d have to be more aggressive, take some more shots.”

At the other end, Baker’s jumper at the buzzer didn’t drop. Kent State survived. And, the Golden Flashes hope, it’s the first step in the right direction.

“It’s huge,” said Khaliq Spicer, who had 17 points and seven rebounds. “We just have to keep rolling, stay consistent and keep it going.”

Raiders cut safety Allen after injury-filled season

• The Oakland Raiders terminated the contract of safety Nate Allen.

Oakland cut ties with Allen on Tuesday, less than one year after signing him as a free agent. Allen’s $4.9 million salary for 2016 would have been guaranteed if he was on the roster Wednesday.

The 28-year-old Allen played just five games this season because of knee injuries. His departure leaves Oakland looking to fill both safety spots with Charles Woodson having already announced his retirement.

• The Tennessee Titans released safety Michael Griffin after nine seasons in their first step toward improving their secondary. The Titans announced the move Tuesday. A first-round draft pick in 2007 at No. 19 overall out of Texas, Griffin was a two-time Pro Bowl pick in 2008 and 2010 whose 141 games played tied Corey Graham of Buffalo for most games played by a safety between 2007 and 2015. Griffin had 25 interceptions and also became the fifth player in franchise history with 900 career tackles and the most by a safety.

• Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank is planning surgery for what he says is a treatable form of prostate cancer. Blank said in a statement posted on the team website on Tuesday he was diagnosed with the cancer in December. He says he has visited doctors “across the country.” He says “the overall prognosis is good.” The 73-year-old Blank, the co-founder of Home Depot, purchased the Falcons in 2002. He also owns the expansion MLS franchise Atlanta United FC, which will begin play in 2017. The soccer team will share the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, currently under construction, with the Falcons.

Hockey

Senators acquire Phaneuf in nine-player transaction

• The Ottawa Senators acquired defenseman Dion Phaneuf from the Toronto Maple Leafs in a nine-player trade weeks before the deadline. Ottawa gets Phaneuf, forwards Matt Frattin, Casey Bailey and Ryan Rupert, and defensive prospect Cody Donaghey from the Maple Leafs for defenseman Jared Cowen, forwards Milan Michalek, Colin Greening and Tobias Lindberg and a second-round pick in the 2017 draft. There is no salary being retained by either team. Phaneuf, the Maple Leafs’ captain for the past six seasons, is the centerpiece of the deal. The 30-year-old has five years left on his contract at a salary-cap hit of $7 million. The deal represents a housecleaning for Toronto and clears roster and salary space for Brendan Shanahan’s rebuilding project.

• Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin is expected to miss the next three games with an undisclosed injury that already has kept him out for three games. Last week, General Manager Jim Rutherford suggested Malkin’s injury occurred in a 6-5 home win Feb. 2 against the Ottawa Senators. Other than describing it as “lower body,” the team has provided few details on his ailment.

On the record: Kent State women’s golf team wins fourth consecutive match for first time in program history

The Kent State women’s golf team made school history on Tuesday with wins at the Mid-American Match Play Challenge in Bradenton, Fla.

The No. 7-ranked Golden Flashes won their fourth consecutive match for the first time in program history, defeating Northern Illinois 3-2 in the semifinals and Eastern Michigan 4-1 in the final round.

“I was happy with the way they played and competed,” coach Greg Robertson said. “We saw a lot of good things out of each player and we also found some things we can work on.”

The Flashes won four matches in the final round, with Josee Doyon (2-up), Michaela Finn (6 and 5), Taylor Kim (6 and 3) and Wad Phaewchimplee (6 and 4) leading the Flashes. Amira Alexander narrowly missed a victory in a 1-and-1 loss.

The Flashes will compete in the Lady Puerto Rico Classic on Feb. 14-16.

The University of Akron suffered a semifinal loss to Eastern Michigan on Tuesday morning and lost to Northern Illinois in the third-place match on Tuesday afternoon.

The Zips travel to Arizona for the Rio Verde Invitational on Feb. 26-28.

College basketball roundup: No. 18 Purdue beats No. 8 Michigan State 82-81 in OT

BIG TEN: 
No. 18 Purdue 82,
No. 8 Michigan State 81

Raphael Davis made 1-of-2 free throws with 4.6 seconds left in overtime Tuesday night to help host Purdue pull off an upset over Michigan State. The Boilermakers (20-5, 8-4) snapped a seven-game losing streak in the series despite blowing an 18-point second-half lead, trailing by four late in regulation and allowing the Spartans to tie it at 81 with 11.5 seconds left. Davis broke the tie with the decisive free throw, giving him 24 points. A.J. Hammons wrestled the rebound on the second shot away from Michigan State (20-5, 7-5) to seal it.

No. 2 Maryland 93, Bowie State 62

Host Maryland got 16 points from Rasheed Sulaimon and cruised past Bowie State for its school-record 27th consecutive home victory. Taking a break from their rigorous Big Ten schedule, the Terrapins (22-3) enjoyed a stress-free encounter with Bowie State, a Division II school in Maryland.

TOP 25: 
No. 1 Villanova 86, DePaul 59

Josh Hart scored 18 points and Villanova celebrated its first game as the nation’s top team with a victory over host DePaul. Kris Jenkins made three 3-pointers and finished with 13 points as the Wildcats (21-3, 11-1) rolled to their 13th win in their last 14 games. They moved two games clear of fifth-ranked Xavier for the Big East lead.

Creighton 70,
No. 5 Xavier 56

Maurice Watson scored a career-high 32 points and host Creighton rode a fast start to an upset of Xavier. The Bluejays (16-9, 7-5 Big East) used an early 16-0 run to take a 17-point lead 9 minutes into the game and then held off the Musketeers after they pulled within five with 6 minutes left. Watson was dazzling all game with his drives to the basket against much bigger defenders. He scored 22 points in the second half and finished off the Musketeers with a bank-in high off the glass, a layup and then a steal and layup to make it 66-53 with 1:54 to play.

No. 6 Kansas 75,
No. 10 West Virginia 65

Perry Ellis had 21 points, Landen Lucas pulled down a career-high 16 rebounds and host Kansas beat West Virginia to forge a three-way tie atop the Big 12. Frank Mason III added 14 points for the Jayhawks (20-4, 8-3), who handled the Mountaineers’ pressure well in avenging a loss lost month in Morgantown that had them playing catch-up in the league race.

No. 7 Virginia 67, Virginia Tech 49

Anthony Gill scored 16 points and host Virginia turned the tables on state rival Virginia Tech with the Cavaliers’ seventh straight win. Isaiah Wilkins added a career-best 14 points and Malcolm Brogdon had 12 for the Cavaliers (20-4, 9-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Virginia avenged a 70-68 loss to the Hokies in Blacksburg on Jan. 4 in what rates as their worst performance of the season, and extended their win streak at John Paul Jones Arena to 17 games.

No. 9 North Carolina 68, Boston College 65

Playing most of the second half without coach Roy Williams, who left the bench after complaining of vertigo, North Carolina rallied to beat host Boston College thanks to 20 points from Justin Jackson. The Eagles, who have not won an Atlantic Coast Conference game this season, led the whole way until Theo Pinson hit two free throws with under four minutes remaining. After BC retook the lead, Marcus Paige hit a 3-pointer to make it 62-60.

No. 12 Miami 65, Pittsburgh 63

Guard Angel Rodriguez scored on an offensive rebound with 1.4 seconds left, and host Miami edged Pittsburgh. With the game tied, the Hurricanes missed two shots in the final 6 seconds and a Pitt player batted the ball before Rodriguez slapped it in the basket from the left side with his left hand. That was the only offensive rebound of the game for the 5-foot-11 Rodriguez, who had 17 points and eight assists.

No. 19 Dayton 76, Duquesne 74

Scoochie Smith hit a 3-pointer that put host Dayton ahead to stay as the Flyers overcame a late 12-point deficit and beat Duquesne. The Flyers (20-3, 10-1 Atlantic 10) got their eighth straight win by going on a closing 19-5 run. Smith’s 3-pointer from the top of the arc put Dayton ahead 73-70 with 46 seconds left, and the Dukes (15-9, 5-6) never pulled even again. Smith hit a free throw with 2.7 seconds left.

No. 22 Kentucky 82,
Georgia 48

Jamal Murray scored 24 points, Tyler Ulis added 14 and host Kentucky held Georgia to a season-low 22 percent shooting to coast to an 82-48 victory Tuesday night.

Murray made 8-of-14 from the field including 6 -of-10 from 3-point range. His accuracy helped spur the Wildcats (18-6, 8-3 SEC) to 52 percent shooting.

Georgia (13-9, 6-5) finished with a season-low 22 percent shooting.

No. 25 Wichita State 74,
Drake 48

Ron Baker and Shaq Morris had 11 points each and Wichita State pounded host Drake for its 12th win in 13 games. Thirteen players scored for the Shockers (18-5, 12-1 Missouri Valley Conference), who moved within two victories of clinching at least a share of its third straight league title. Wichita State had little trouble with the Valley’s worst team, rattling off a 27-5 run to close the first half in beating the Bulldogs for the ninth straight time.

MID-AMERICAN: 
Ohio 72, Ball State 69

Antonio Campbell made 10-of-14 from the field and finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds to help Ohio beat host Ball State. Kenny Kaminski scored 20, including five 3s, for Ohio. A layup by Campbell, and then a conventional 3-point play by Kaminski put Ohio (15-8, 6-5) up 65-58 with four minutes to play.

Toledo 71, Buffalo 69

Jonathan Williams scored 15 points, including the game-winning basket, and Toledo rallied to beat host Buffalo. Zach Garber added 13 points, Nate Navigato and Nathan Boothe added 11 apiece and Boothe had 11 boards for the Rockets (15-9, 6-5). Trailing by nine a halftime, Toledo got consecutive 3-pointers by Jaelan Sanford and Boothe, then closed to within 59-52 on Garber’s free throw with 9:13 to go.

Eastern Michigan 71, Central Michigan 56

James Thompson IV hit 7-of-13 field goals and finished with 19 points and a career-high 15 rebounds, while Brandon Nazione added 16 and 11 to help host Eastern Michigan beat Central Michigan. Ty Toney scored 11 and Tim Bond added 10 points with five assists for Eastern Michigan (12-12, 4-7).

Miami (Ohio) 45, Western Michigan 44.

Geovonie McKnight scored 15 points and Rod Mills made his only point in the game count, hitting the first of two free throws with eight seconds left to give Miami (Ohio) a win over host Western Michigan. The RedHawks total was their lowest of the season.

Ohio State basketball: OSU rallies for 71-63 win over Northwestern

COLUMBUS: Jaquan Lyle led five Ohio State players in double-figures as the Buckeyes rallied to beat Northwestern 71-63 on Tuesday night.

Keita Bates-Diop had six of his 11 points for Ohio State during a 15-2 run that swung the game in the Buckeyes’ favor midway through the second half.

Lyle, who had four points during the Buckeyes’ go-ahead spurt, finished with 16 points and Marc Loving had 15 for Ohio State. Trevor Thompson added 12 and Jae’Sean Tate had 10 for the Buckeyes (15-10, 7-5).

Tre Demps and Bryant McIntosh scored 14 points apiece, Alex Olah had 11 and Scottie Lindsey added 10 for Northwestern.

The Wildcats (16-9, 4-8) led for most of the first 35 minutes but wilted under an aggressive Ohio State press in the second half.

Ohio State snapped a two-game losing streak while Northwestern lost for the sixth time in its last seven games.

High school boys basketball / Hudson 58, Highland 51: Zack Meder scores 25 points to lead Explorers to 15th win

GRANGER TWP.: Hudson senior Zack Meder has narrowed his college choices down to Stanford, Duke and Ohio State.

Meder has a 4.7 grade-point average and plans to major in either chemistry, biochemistry or pre-med. Playing Division I college basketball is not in his future, but Meder continues to be one of the best high school players in the Akron area.

Meder displayed his scoring abilities Tuesday night when he led visiting Hudson to a 58-51 win over Highland in a crossover game between Suburban League schools.

Meder, who takes honors and advanced placement courses exclusively, scored a game-high 25 points. He scored all 13 of the Explorers’ points in the third quarter.

“Tonight is what we see everyday from Zack,” Hudson coach Jeff Brink said. “The kid was all-state last year [in Division I]. ... He’s put up 30 [points] several times and there have been games like tonight where he just takes over the game.

“He can flat-out score, and for a 5-foot-9, 140-pound kid, I think he is the best pound-for-pound kid I have coached in [28] years. For his size, what he does on the floor is amazing. He can finish with both hands, he can shoot the 3 and he can beat people off the dribble [on offense]. His defensive game is underrated.”

Meder earned Co-Player of the Year with Stow’s Nathan Bower-Malone last season in the now defunct Northeast Ohio Conference River Division. Meder also has taken the ACT three times and posted scores of 33, 33 and 35.

“The kid is brilliant and he is the most humble kid in the world,” Brink said. “He doesn’t talk any trash or do any gyrations or showboating. He is definitely old school. He goes about his business and does his job.”

Senior Isaac MacGillis and junior Jackson Parker also played key roles Tuesday for Hudson (15-4) as both scored 13 points. MacGillis also grabbed 11 rebounds.

Hudson led 17-13 after one quarter, 29-27 at halftime and 42-39 following three quarters.

“As a team, I thought we hustled really well,” Meder said. “We had a lot of different guys put a lot effort in. Mikey Pie [senior Mike Piekarski] had a bunch of big plays down the stretch, made some free throws and got some key steals.

“Personally, in the third quarter we were going back-and-forth with buckets and I was feeling good. I kept driving and taking what they were giving me to get some baskets.”

Brink also praised seniors Ryan Martin, Peter Funk, and David O’Connor and junior Spencer McClure, and said his players are “unassuming” and play “very unselfish.”

“The ending is not what we wanted, but we feel like we competed and put ourselves in position to win,” Highland coach Adam Cestaro said. “Meder is a darn good player and he made some tough shots tonight. I thought we defended him pretty well. It came down to him making some hard shots. ... They are well-coached and execute their stuff really well. They have 15 wins for a reason.”

Sophomore Collin Rittman led Highland (11-8) with 19 points. Senior Isaac Matejin scored 15 points and senior Brandon Shaw contributed seven points.

“They are a good team and they have gotten better,” Brink said. “He is doing a great job with them. They continue to improve, they run good stuff, they shoot the ball well, and they played Copley twice pretty solid.”
