Melanie Stubbs hit a 15-foot jumper with one second to go as KSU beat Colgate on the road Sunday.
It’s the second win of the year for the Flashes, who are 2-8. Colgate is 1-9.
Larissa Lurken, who missed Kent’s Wednesday game with the flu, came off the bench to score 14 points. But Mikell Chinn missed her fourth straight game with a concussion.
That almost cost KSU the game as back-up point Naddiyah Cross fouled out with about four minutes to go 2:55 to go and Kent State leading 58-53. Colgate twice took a one-point lead, but Lurken answered the first time, then Stubbs hit her game winner. Lurken’s 14 led the Flashes. Stubbs had a career-high 12 and Krista White 10. Montia Johnson had 10 rebounds off the bench. Kent State shot 50 percent (25 for 50) but turned the ball over 22 times.
