RE: Women's basketball 2017-18
Kent State held Michigan’s all-time leading scorer to the second-lowest point total of her career and Michigan to its lowest total at home in two years.

But the Wolverines played good defense of their own, forcing 21 Kent State turnovers and beating the Flashes, 54-41.

Michigan, ranked No. 24 in the country in last week’s AP poll, is 8-2.

Kent State is 6-5. The Flashes have lost to two teams in the top 25 and three in the Mid-Major Top 25.

KSU led 15-5 after the first quarter and was tied 19-19 at halftime. A box-and-one defense led by point guard Naddiyah Cross kept Michigan’s Katelynn Flaherty, who has scored more than 2,200 points in her career, in check.

Alexa Golden led Kent State with 15 points; Jordan Korinek had 10.

The Kent State women play their final non-conference game of the year Tuesday morning at Robert Morris.

Flashes are 6-5; Robert Morris is 7-3. But neither team has beaten an opponent with a winning record. Robert Morris beat KSU 68-65 in overtime last season at the MACC.

It's an important test for KSU; the Flashes are going to have to beat teams like Robert Morris to compete in the MAC.

Two KSU players graduated Saturday, though both remain on the roster and will play as graduate students. They are guard Alexa Golden, who went through her undergraduate studies in two-and-a-half years, and guard Naddiyah Cross, who graduated a semester ahead of much of her class. They'll join another grad student, McKenna Stephens, who graduated last May, on the team.

The game starts at 10 a.m. and is part of a career day for high school students at Robert Morris. Full preview is on the blog at http://wbbflashes.com.

Ty Linder did a very nice profile on women's coach Todd Starkey on the Kent State website.

The women played a real barn burner this morning scoring a total of 46 points. The good news is they won by 15. Glad I didn’t decide to drive to Pittsburgh for that one.

Kent State played best perhaps its defensive game in two decades Tuesday as it defeated Robert Morris, 46-31.

It was the lowest point total for a KSU opponent since 1996.

The Flashes finish their non-conference season with a 7-5 record. Robert Morris, defending Northeastern Conference champions and a team that beat KSU in Kent last season, is 7-4.

Jordan Korinek led Kent State with 17 points. Ali Poole had 11 and a career-high eight rebounds.

KSU committed 25 turnovers in the game and missed eight foul shots in the first half. But the Flashes held Robert Morris to 25 percent shooting and 2 of 19 on three-point shots. The Colonials had averaged 62.5 points a game, 41.3 percent shooting and 35 percent on three-pointers.

The Flashes now break for Christmas and will open the Mid-American Conference season on Saturday, Dec. 30, at Eastern Michigan.

The women's team is playing well. Without a monster like Ball State in the East there is no reason to think KSU can't challenge for the crown.

Ball St has a 30 RPI and Buffalo is at 40. Kent at 185 is currently only ahead of Akron and EMU. I know it’s still a bit early but Kent still has to prove it can be competitive even in the East.

RE: Women's basketball 2017-18
The reason KSU's RPI is so low is that it's beaten only one team with a winning record -- only two that have won more than three games.

The teams it has lost to are quite good -- two in the top 25 and three in the mid-major top 25.

That's why I think the Robert Morris win was an important won; they dominated a team picked to win its conference on the road.

But like last season, they'll have to prove they're MAC contenders on the court. Remember they were 6-6 non-conference last season and lost their first two MAC games.

I recap the non-conference season and how those opponents are doing on the blog at http://wbbflashes.com.

Even with all the good teams we have played our SOS is still only 266. The bad teams were really bad to make that happen. With most of the non conference games done we are pretty much stuck with that. The good news is the MAC is currently ranked 8th in the country so if we are successful in Conference play we should improve quickly. Historically, 8th is pretty good for the MAC.
