AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jaylin Walker scored 16 of his 24 points in the second half, helping Kent State defeat Texas 63-58 on Tuesday night.

Deon Edwin scored 15 for Kent State, including 13 in the second half, and grabbed 12 rebounds.

Jarrett Allen led Texas with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Kerwin Roach, Jr. added 13 points.

Forward Jimmy Hall, Ken State's leader this season in scoring (18.3 points a game) and rebounding (11.3), left the game with four fouls with 14:54 remaining. The Golden Flashes (8-5) trailed by six at the time, but rallied without Hall, converting their first three 3-point baskets of the game after nine misses to take a 42-39 lead. Walker added a pair of baskets for a seven-point lead.

Texas (6-6) closed to within a point three times during the final 2:30 and had the ball trailing by three with less than 10 seconds remaining, but Hall blocked a driving shot by Eric Davis, Jr.
