Great home win vs BGSU for the KSU Women's Basketball. How the tides have changed. Under Kurt Miller BGSU was almost unbeatable for several years.

RE: Women's basketball 2017-18
Kent State's women's basketball team fell behind 19-13 after the first quarter and never could catch up to Northern Illinois. Losing 72-62 at the MACC.

The loss drops the Flashes to 4-7 in the MAC and 11-12 overall. NIU is 3-8 and 11-11, The Huskies are the third team behind the Flashes in the standings that KSU has lost to. That fact is starting to put Kent State's chance for a home game in the MAC Tournament in serious question.


Northern scored heavily on transition baskets in the first half, outscoring the Flashes 11-2 on fast-break baskets in the first 10 minutes and 19-4 for the game.


Kent State tied the game midway in the third quarter and got within four points in the middle of the fourth quarter. But NIU always bounced back with runs of its own.


Megan Carter led Kent State with 19 points. Jordan Korinek had 14 but struggled with foul trouble and played just 27 minutes. Freshman guard Erin Thames, starting her second straight game, scored 13 points — more than she had in all her previous games combined.


Courtney Woods, the MAC's leading scorer, led Northern with 21 points, nine of them in the first quarter and 14 in the first half.

RE: Women's basketball 2017-18
The women have a tough test tonight at Buffalo, the MAC East leaders who are having one of their best seasons in school history.

Bulls are 17-4 and 8-2 in the conference, losing only to league-leader Central Michigan and Northern Illinois. They may have the conference's best newcomer -- 5-9 guard Cierra Dillard, a transfer from Massachusetts. She averages 15.7 points a game.

Buffalo has five seniors that have played major minutes in their careers, including point guard Stephanie Reid, one of the best in the conference.

KSU's Jordan Korinek is second in the conference in scoring but the Flashes have had difficulty finding a consistent second threat and a consistent three-point shooter.

Kent State is 4-7 in the MAC and 11-12 overall.

RE: Women's basketball 2017-18
Buffalo held Kent State to 21 percent shooting — lowest in at least five years — in an 80-42 rout of the Flashes in Buffalo Wednesday.

It was KSU’s worst loss of the season and second largest margin of defeat in Todd Starkey’s two years as coach in Kent. The worst was a 42-point loss to Baylor, ranked No. 5 in the country at the time last year.

The Bulls ran to a 25-9 first-quarter lead. KSU played them fairly evenly in the second and third quarters but then were blown out 24-10 in the fourth quarter.

Jordan Korinek, the MAC’s second-leading scorer, had 22 points for Kent State. But no other KSU player had more than five.

Kent State made one of 17 three-point shots after making four of 23 Saturday against Northern Illinois.

Buffalo leads the MAC East and is second in the MAC overall with an 10-2 conference record (19-4 overall). Kent State is 4-8 in conference play and 11-13 for the season.

RE: Women's basketball 2017-18
The women play Ohio at 2 p.m. Saturday at the MACC.

Flashes have home games left against Ohio, Miami and Buffalo, teams ahead of them in the MAC East. KSU, which has lost two in a row in disappointing fashion, has to start winning at home to salvage a disappointing conference season.

KSU is 4-8 in the MAC and 11-13 overall. The Flashes were 13-5 last season but haven't found a consistent second scoring threat after Jordan Korinek, who is second in the conference at 22.5 points per game.

Ohio is 6-5 and 12-10. The Bobcats have played one of the MAC's toughest schedule and lost by just two to league-leading Central Michigan at home on Wednesday. Last Saturday they beat Ball State, the league's third best team by fur points, also in Athens.

Ohio went on an 8-0 run after Kent State had closed Saturday's game to four points and beat the Flashes, 78-65.

KSU led only in the first minutes of the game, but things were between four and nine points for most of the game until Ohio's streak with about five minutes to go.

The defeat drops Kent's record to 4-9 in the Mid-American Conference and 11-14 overall. The Flashes have lost three games in a row and four of their last five. Ohio is 7-5 in the conference and 13-10 overall.

Jordan Korinek led Kent State with 21 points and 11 rebounds. McKenna Stephens had 14 and four assists. Alexa Golden had five steals. 

Four Ohio players scored in double figures, led by Amani Burke with 20 points off the bench.

The women play Miami at about 4:30 p.m. in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader at the MACC. The men play Akron at 2 p.m.

Miami is having a good year under first-year coach Megan Duffy, a former assistant at Michigan. The Redhawks are 15-9 and 7-6 in the MAC. They're led by 5-3 point guard Lauren Dickerson, who is second in the conference in scoring at 20.8 points per game. Kent State's Jordan Korinek is just behind her at 2.6.

KSU is 4-9 in the MAC, 11-14 overall, and has lost three in a row.

Miami made 9 of 17 three-point shots while Kent State made just one of 13 as the Flashes fell to the Redhawks, 65-59, at the M.A.C. Center Saturday.

Miami also outscored the Flashes 16-8 off turnovers.

Kent State dominated scoring in the paint and in rebounding but saw its record drop to 4-10 in the MAC and 11-15 overall. Miami is 8-6 and 16-9.

Jordan Korinek and Megan Carter each had 17 points for the Flashes. McKenna Stephens had nine points, 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

Kent State held Miami's Lauren Dickerson, the conferences second-leading scorer to 13 point on four of 13 shooting. But four other Redhawks scored in double figures.

RE: Women's basketball 2017-18
It’s funny how human nature works. This team had 5 miserable seasons and finally turned it around last year. This year they play like their very satisfied with what they accomplished last year. Starkey during the post game interview said his team has a lot of players who think their shooters but none of them practice enough at it to be good shooters. Interesting. There is no doubt that they throw up their share of bricks though. I don’t like when a coach in a post game radio show, usually without thinking about what he is saying, makes critical comments but this team might need a kick in the you know what. It should be better even without Lurken. Poole hurt her knee in the first half and did not return. The way she was walking it didn’t look serious but walking and playing basketball are two different things. We will see.
