Kalin Bennett Becomes the Only Scholarship D-1 Athelete with Autism to Score Points


Recommended Posts


Kalin Bennett, a freshman big man at Kent State, became the first scholarship Division I men’s basketball player this season.

On Wednesday night, in the opening game of the season for the Golden Flashes, Bennett scored a bucket with less than three minutes remaining.

He is not the first Division I player diagnosed with autism to score in a game. Former Michigan State center Anthony Ianni scored five points in 27 career games between 2010 and 2012. He was a walk-on that was made a scholarship player as a senior.
