Outstanding KSU defensive effort can’t overcome No. 24 Michigan, 54-41

Kent State held Michigan’s all-time leading scorer to the second-lowest point total of her career and Michigan to its lowest total at home in two years.

But the Wolverines played good defense of their own, forcing 21 Kent State turnovers and beating the Flashes, 54-41.

Michigan, ranked No. 24 in the country in last week’s AP poll, is 8-2.

Kent State is 6-5. The Flashes have lost to two teams in the top 25 and three in the Mid-Major Top 25.

KSU led 15-5 after the first quarter and was tied 19=19 at halftime. A box-and-one defense led by point guard Naddiyah Cross kept Michigan’s Katelynn Flaherty in check.

Alexa Golden led Kent State with 15 points; Jordan Korinek had 10.
