Allen, who led the Wildcats with 18 points and 10 rebounds, received high praise from Kent.
“It's tough to say goodbye to Phil Allen. He's probably scored over 900 points, over 400 boards and 300 assists. He's been a captain, he's been a leader, he's been a comedy show when we needed it. He does all the right things for us when we need it and it's tough to say goodbye to him.”
