KENT, Ohio — Freshman Jalen Sullinger had 24 points as Kent State routed Point Park 107-41 Tuesday night, earning head coach Rob Senderoff his 200th career win.
Giovanni Santiago had 18 points for the Golden Flashes (4-2). Justyn Hamilton added 14 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks while Cleveland native Tervell Beck had 12 points.
It was the first time this season KSU scored at least 100 points, with the team shooting a stellar 59.7% from the field and 51.6% from 3-point range. Eddie Flohr had eight points for the Pioneers, who shot a paltry 24.1%.
Senderoff has coached more years and won more games than anyone in Kent State men's basketball history. Now in his 11th season, the Spring Valley, New York, natives highlights have included a Mid-American Conference regular season co-championship in 2015 and a MAC Tournament Title in 2017, the latter of which gave the Flashes their most recent berth in the NCAA Tournament.
"There's a lot of people that helped me throughout my career here at Kent and to get to this point, so just thankful of all them," Senderoff said after the game. "We have a lot more ahead of us this year. I'm sure maybe when I'm done coaching I'll think back about it."
KSU will have the next five days off before hosting Towson Monday night at the MAC Center.
