Cleveland State Vs. Kent State Final Score: Vikings Stay Undefeated After 57-53 Win

The Cleveland State Vikings continued their dream start to the season with a 57-53 win over in-state rival Kent State Flashes on Monday night at Memorial A & C Center in Kent, Ohio.

In a true defensive battle, the Vikings pushed to 4-0 on the season despite shooting just 35.1 % from the field including an 0-9 scoreless night by Trevon Harmon, who started the night as Cleveland State's second leading scorer, averaging 15 points.

Kent State, 2-1, dropped its first game of the season in what was a battle of unbeaten teams. The Flashes made just 1-17 three-pointers and racked up twice as many turnovers (22) as assists (11).

Jeremy Montgomery led Cleveland State with 13 points and leading scorer D'Aundray Brown chipped in with 11 in the low-scoring match. The defensive-minded Vikings, 4-0, have held each of its first four opponents under 65 points.

The win follows up Cleveland State's shocking win at seventh ranked Vanderbilt on Friday, which halted the Commodores' 20-game home win streak. That win had pushed the Vikings into 24th in the latest CBSSports top 25. Cleveland State stays busy with upcoming games against Boston University on Friday, Hofstra on Saturday, and Rhode Island on Sunday.
