Jordan Korinek had 21 points, Megan Carter scored 16 in her first game of the season and McKenna Stephens and Alexa Golden both had double-figure rebounds as Kent State beat Eastern Michigan Saturday, 67-60.

It was the Mid-American Conference opener for both teams. On the season, KSU is now 8-5, Eastern 4-8.

Kent State had strong first and fourth quarters. In between, Eastern Michigan dominated and led by five points late in the third quarter. But KSU went on a 5-0 run to end the quarter and a 6-0 run to start the fourth.

In her first game back after sitting out the fall for academic reasons, Carter made 6 of 15 shots and had three assists and three rebounds in 29 minutes. Her 16 points were a career high.

Stephens had 17 points and a career-high 12 rebounds. Golden had nine points and 10 rebounds and made three foul shots in the last minute.
