OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -Kent State scored only 10 points in the first half of its NCAA tournament game against UNLV on Thursday.
The ninth-seeded Golden Flashes made 21 percent from the field on 5-of-24 shooting, missing all seven of their 3-point attempts. They also turned it over a staggering 17 times, averaging nearly one turnover a minute.
No. 8 seed UNLV led 31-10 at the half of the Midwest Regional game.
It wasn't immediately known if Kent State's low-scoring half approached the NCAA tournament record. The lowest-scoring game in tournament history was a 20-point effort by North Carolina against Pittsburgh in 1941, long before the shot-clock era.
The Golden Flashes matched their first-half effort with 10 points in the first 4 minutes of the second half and went past North Carolina's mark with more than 15 minutes remaining.
