AKRON, Ohio (AP) Deon Edwin scored 21 points to help Kent State snap Akron's 30-game home winning streak with a 70-67 win on Friday night.
The Zips' home winning streak had been the second longest in the nation behind No. 7 Oregon (41). The Golden Flashes (15-12, 7-7 Mid-American) had a 7-1 run to lead 70-64 on Mitch Peterson's free throw with three seconds left.
Noah Robotham hit three free throws for Akron (22-5, 12-2) with a second left when it didn't matter.
Kent State never trailed after Edwin's basket with 9:19 left made it 48-47, but the Flashes struggled to separate as Akron tied it twice, at 61- and 63-all. But after Edwin's jumper made it 65-63, Kent State never surrendered the lead and hit 5 of 6 free throws in the final 23 seconds to hold on.
