Updated 1/25/2000

KENT, Ohio (Jan. 24) Kent State University head basketball coach Bob Lindsay recorded his 200th career victory Monday night when the Golden Flashes (14-4, 7-0 Mid-American Conference) defeated 24th-ranked University of Virginia (14-5), 85-74, at Kent's Memorial Athletic and Convocation Center.

Junior center Julie Studer (Mansfield, Ohio/Lexington) led Kent with game-highs of 25 points and eight rebounds after sinking 11 free throws in the same number of attempts and hitting seven of 11 field goals attempted. The Flashes outrebounded the Cavaliers 38-26 and hit 31 of 35 attempts at the charity stripe compared to Virginia's 14 of 19.

Already the MAC's all-time winningest women's basketball coach, Lindsay became the fourth hardwood coach in league history to win 200 games. He was the second fastest to reach that mark, earning win number 200 in his 308th career game; the University of Toledo's Bob Nichols won his 200th game in his 302nd attempt.

The Cavaliers were the highest-ranked team ever to play in the M.A.C. Center, and the win was Kent's first ever over a ranked opponent. The win extended Kent's win streak to 11 games, and lengthened the Flashes' homecourt streak to 27 victories. Kent also put a stop to a 10-game Virginia win streak.
