Late Night News From the West Coast

So, in the wee hours of the night, Eastern time, Kent picked up a pretty nice win for the MAC in the NIT.  They were playing on the road against a pretty good St. Mary's team that could easily have been in the tournament, and trailing by 11 with 10 minutes left in the game and 6 points with 2:20 left to play.  The play by play shows that in the last 2 minutes, Kent made 5 layups including a Justin Greene layup with :03 left to ice the game, while getting a couple of stops along the way.

This is a nice win for Kent and the MAC.  St. Mary's was an 11 point favorite based on the Vegas line, which was probably a really good bet if  you compare the teams based on the available numbers.  Or, a really good bet based on Kent winning the game.

Porrini had 19 points and 7 assists, Holt had 13 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists and Guyton had 13 points and 6 rebounds.  Greene redeemed a pretty average night (13 points, 4 rebounds and 7 turnovers) with the winning layup with :03 left.
