Kent, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Kris Brewer made a go-ahead free-throw attempt with three seconds remaining to lift the Kent State Golden Flashes to a 79-78 decision over the USC Upstate Spartans in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at the M.A.C. Center.

Brewer went 1-of-7 from the field and missed front end of his late trip to the charity stripe before coming up clutch to help the Golden Flashes (5-1) win their 10th game in a row at home. Devareaux Manley scored a team-high 21 points while Derek Jackson chipped in 15 points and a pair of steals. Darren Goodson tallied 12 points, six rebounds and six assists for Kent State.

The Spartans heated up after the break to hit on 60.7 percent of their field goal attempts including 7-of-11 from behind the 3-point line. Kent State shot only 35.7 percent from the field, but continued to light up the score from the perimeter with a 7-of-16 clip from 3-point range. Craig completed a traditional three-point play with 16 seconds remaining in regulation to even the score at 78. After Brewer put the Golden Flashes back in front by one, Glenn missed a jumper as time expired.
