Chris Evans scored 16 points and pulled down 10 rebounds Saturday in Kent State's 70-63 victory over BracketBusters foe Loyola.

Kris Brewer added 14 points and was 3 of 3 from the 3-point line for the Golden Flashes (15-12), who also got 13 from Randal Holt and 12 from Darren Goodson.

Christian Thomas led the Ramblers (14-14) with a career-high 31 points and 11 rebounds. Thomas, a sophomore, was 11 of 19 from the floor.

Loyola opened the game on a 20-9 run capped by Jordan Hicks' 3-pointer, but Kent State rallied to lead 38-33 at halftime. The Ramblers couldn't get closer than four points down the rest of the way.

The Ramblers still hold a 3-2 lead in the all-time series, which began with a 96-55 victory during the team's 1962-63 NCAA championship season. Saturday's game was the first between the schools since 1996.
