Belin’s big night helps Youngstown State men drop Milwaukee

Staff report


Junior Kamren Belin scored a career-high 21 points and led three players scoring in double figures as the Youngstown State men’s basketball team defeated Milwaukee, 75-72, in a Horizon League game Saturday at the Klotsche Center.

Seniors Damian Eargle and Blake Allen also reached double figures with 17 and 16 points, respectively, for the Penguins (10-8, 2-3). Allen connected on 4-of-7 from 3-point range while Eargle has seven boards and three blocks.

Allen made two free throws with just 21 seconds left to put the Penguins ahead 75-72 and the defense did not allow the Panthers (5-14, 1-4) a chance to get a game-tying 3-point attempt off.

In a game that featured 12 lead changes and seven ties, sophomore DJ Cole’s 3-pointer with 6:37 left snapped a 63-63 tie and gave the Penguins the lead for good.
