Ball State 76, Kent State 67

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -- Terrance Chapman had 18 points and seven
rebounds to lead Ball State to a 76-67 victory over Kent State on
Sunday.

Peyton Stovall also scored 18 points for the Cardinals (6-4, 1-1
Mid-American), who scored 22 points off 16 Kent State turnovers.

Jason Edwin and Marcus Crenshaw each scored 13 points for the
Golden Flashes (8-4, 1-1).

Nate Gerwig had nine points and 10 rebounds for Kent State,
which couldn't bounce back from a tough loss at Boston College on
Wednesday. The Golden Flashes lost on a last-second shot by Craig
Smith in that game, then came out flat against the Cardinals.

Ball State, which got 12 points and six rebounds from Julien
Mills, shot 52 percent in the first half and committed just 12
turnovers in the game.

The fast start was what Ball State coach Tim Buckley wanted to
see after watching his team fall behind 17-2 in the first five
minutes of a 71-59 loss at Indiana on Tuesday.
