Justin Greene and Carlton Guyton paced the Golden Flashes with 15 points each in starting roles, but the bench also played a major role in what turned out to be an easy win for Kent St. Chris Evans (13 points) and Kris Brewers (10 points) led the reserves, who combined for 43 points, compared to the Bears' bench, which totaled 16 points.
Greene was the star of the night, netting his 15 points on 3-4 shooting from the field, as he made 9-11 free throws and added 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals in 25 efficient minutes.
After a slow start, a 9-0 run midway through the first half gave the Golden Flashes a 24-17 lead, and they would not give up that lead the rest of the game, slowly but surely pulling away throughout.
Kent St., now 10-3, hit the road next to face the 6-4 Buffalo Bulls on Saturday.
