ESTERO, Fla. — Lindsey Thall scored 20 points, Casey Santoro made 7 of 8 from the free-throw line in the final 76 seconds and Kent State upset No. 19 UCLA 75-69 at the Gulf Coast Showcase.

The Strongsville native Thall made 7 of 9 from the field and 5 of 7 from 3-point range while Santoro finished with 14 points. The Golden Flashes will play UMass in Saturday's semifinals.

KSU (4-0) scored 12 consecutive points as the Bruins went scoreless for nearly 4 minutes to take a 70-61 lead with 56 seconds remaining. Charisma Osborne, who missed UCLA's 69-57 win over Virginia due to an ankle injury, returned to the starting lineup and scored 21 points.

The Bruins (3-1), who have been to five straight NCAA tournaments, will play South Dakota State tomorrow in the loser's bracket.
