RE: Kent State vs. Youngstown State
Gotta like the killer instinct. We didn't play down to the opponent and we didn't let up when we started to stretch the lead. Good signs. De La Rosa looks so much more comfortable in his body right now. Makes sense since last year was probably his first year playing at under 300 lbs in a long time. I realize ysu didn't have an inside presence but last year he wouldn't have been able to do that to anyone.

Interesting foot note, Duling was the only guy that didn't score tonight. I have a feeling he'll have a pretty nice career at Kent. It could end up being pretty funny that he didn't score in his first game but the team scored 111.

Just returned from the game and really, really like what we saw. This team has a great upside and they play a nice game to watch..... very entertaining. Do not worry about Duling. He affects the game in many ways. We have not seen a freshman at Kent State like this in my time. Everyone, get season tickets for this team as they will deserve it. Happy and sleepy right now.

I really liked how well we handled YSU's full court press. We didn't get rattled, and only turned the ball over a few times under pressure. In previous seasons, we had a hard time with it.

RE: Kent State vs. Youngstown State
I was in attendance at the game last night and I have to tell you that this team is the best one from beginning to end that I have seen in a long long time at Kent. Tons of depth and very entertaining to say the least. Walker De La Rosa and Pippen stand out as the most impressive last night. I liked Frederick and Johnson also as new to the team. This team is very very deep in talent and has a lot of weapons to throw at the opposing team. Hats off to Senderoff for a great job in assembling the recruits. Can't wait for the next game!!!!

It is a night vs day difference. I live 9 miles from the MAC and I can’t pick it up after dark. I end up using IHeart Radio (which was the point of the station switch) on my iPad.

I agree - at the end of last season, thinking about what we needed to recruit - at guard we were set, just losing Edwin and having Johnson available after his redshirt. At forward, we spent last year with just Hall and ADLR getting a lot of minutes, and playing a lot with 4 guards on the court. So we needed forwards, especially to replace Hall. Senderhoff went out and signed Duling, and also got Frederick and Nwankwo, all tall, highly rated forwards, and Philip Whittington to stockpile for next year.

With the returning experience, I think this team will be a little better that last year's team

RECRUITING HAS BEEN VERY GOOD .... now for Part 2 - It's pretty clear that either Nwankwo is either still recovering from inury, or a project???

My guess a combination of both ... He's a sophomore, so he will be a good example of just how good this staff is at 'COACHING' a player to at least be a reliable performer off the bench.

Good as Pippen and Frederick look to be as backups, they're actually power forwards. The only true post man behind DLR (who only played 15 minutes vs. YSU) is Nwankwo. For Kent to make a true impact, getting 10 productive minutes out of Nwankwo by the end of January could be huge down the stretch ... and a testament to how well these guys can develop players. Interesting to see how it plays out.

RE: Kent State vs. Youngstown State
Excellent start to the season. Taking another D1 program down by 33 points is impressive (with apologies to the KSU football team).

This team will be together for the next two years, with the exception of DR & KZ. So you have to be bullish on this season & the next, assuming no major impacts to the program occur (injuries, transfers, etc.).

Watching the game, it was evident (to me) that KSU was the stronger & more well-conditioned team. KSU just looked more fit, confident, & intimidating. I believe that the recent emphasis on Sports Performance & dedicating Coach Vail to basketball sports performance has to have had a positive impact, especially this early in the season. Hopefully, this will also contribute to keeping injuries to a minimum.

Looking for good things this season, & beyond. Go Flashes.
