Julie Studer scored 25 points, including a layup that started Kent on a decisive surge late in the second half, as the Golden Flashes beat No. 25 Virginia, 85-74, last night in Kent, Ohio.
Kent's Bob Lindsay became the first women's basketball coach in Mid-American Conference history to win 200 games.
With its first victory ever over a ranked opponent, Kent (14-4) ran its winning streak to 11 games. Kent has won 27 in a row at home.
Three Virginia players fouled out, and Kent was 31 for 35 from the free throw line. Studer made all 11 of her foul shots.
Schuye LaRue paced the Cavaliers with 19 points, but Virginia (14-5) had its 10-game winning streak snapped on the day it cracked the Associated Press top 25 rankings for the first time this season. LaRue scored 17 of her points in the second half after playing just four minutes of the first half because of foul trouble.
Dawn Zerman scored 21 for Kent.
Telisha Quarles and Svetlana Volnaya each added 18 points for Virginia.
"I knew Kent was a very good team," Virginia Coach Debbie Ryan said. "I thought we were prepared today. All the credit goes to Kent."
