Kent State vs. Youngstown State
Basketball season is upon us and the Flashes open up with a familiar foe in a familiar venue. Youngstown State, predicted to finish seventh in the Horizon League this season, is lead by senior guard Cameron Morse. The 6'3 all conference selection from Flint Michigan averaged about 22 points per game last season.

Head Coach Jerrod Calhoun has a youth movement going on in his first year at YSU with eight freshman and three sophomores. There are also a boatload of transfers from various areas around the hinterlands.

There seems to be a sprinkling of veterans who saw some time last season, including a pair of guards from Cleveland St. Ignatius and Youngstown Ursuline.

So...you have to think Kent State is the more seasoned basketball team. The only thing I am holding my breath on is who will the Flashes be able to count on for scoring in the paint?

I like the fact that there is a returning TRUE point guard as well as a couple other ball handlers. I really like that there are a couple players who can fill it up when they get hot. I really really like that there is a wing who can create his own shot. It also seems there should be some decent depth on this year's version of the Flashes.

Looking forward to joining the voice of the Flashes, Ty Linder on WHLO on Saturday.

Kent State 76
Youngstown State 61
Walker messes around and gets a double double.

Hi Fallsdog...
You are going to be sorely disappointed on the radio broadcast...
But, you'll be able to hear Ty on the ESPN3 broadcast!!! I'll be stumbling blindly through the play-by-play on WHLO. Light a candle for me! Haven't done play-by-play for an entire game in over 20 years when I worked a few Hiram College games.

Hey that’s great. All year? Or just Saturday? Take it from someone who knows nothing....score, time remaining, action. That is all the people in radio land care about. Have fun man. I’ll be listening from Cleveland.

Thanks Fallsdog!
It's just for the one game. I'm not sure how I'll do, but it should be a whole lot of fun. It's something I always wanted to do as a kid. But I was always a better writer. Hopefully I can channel my inner Joe Tait rather than my Harry Doyle!
Let me know how I do. I love my family, but I know they'll say nice things even if I fall asleep at the microphone :)

You will do great. Your knowledge will get you through. Go ahead and be a homer. We deserve a little help.

Not WHLO again! I couldn't get it on my car radio in March in Cleveland, and it doesn't come in on my radio in the house. And I live in Kent! The only time I can hear it in my car is when I'm driving to and from campus. I miss WNIR carrying the games. Much better reception. I guess I'll have to listen to it on my phone. And most every game will be on ESPN3, right?

That's odd. The WHLO broadcast for one of the Saturday football games was coming in loud and clear for me, and I live in central Ohio! Could be a difference in night vs. daytime signal strength, I imagine.

I am aware it's just YSU, but we looked pretty good.
