Kent State @ Xavier
The Flashes hit the road to Cincinnati on Wednesday to take on the #13 Xavier at the Cintas Center. The Musketeers enter with a 7-1 record that includes wins over UC, Wisconsin, George Washington and Baylor. Their lone loss was to Arizona State on a neutral floor.

Chris Mack's squad is big, they are deep and they shoot the ball well. The starting lineup is 6'6, 6'5, 6'8, 6'9 and 6'4.

Leading the way is senior guard Trevon Bluiett who averages 20 points and 5 rebounds per game. 6'5 wing J.P. Macura and 6'8 junior Kaiser Gates also score in double figures for Xavier. The leading rebounder and shot blocker is 6'9 sophomore Tyrique Jones.

Off the bench come a pair of 6'10 graduate students and a 6'7 freshman. Needless to say the Flashes are going to have to earn every rebound against the nation's 13th ranked squad.

Compete, play defense, be patient and see what happens. The game is being broadcast on FS1 for those who get the signal.

GO FLASHES!

I think Ball State has lost close to 30-something combined games in a row to Kent State/Akron. Looks like those streaks could finally be coming to an end.

They gave Akron all they could handle in last year's MAC Tournament - I believe they were picked to win the MAC in this year's coaches poll

Hopefully we have 5 guys that can finish the game. A ton of fouls early.

Kanter is a flopper. Lucky for him these refs have bought every one of them.

Xavier is good, maybe final four quality. We did well in spurts. Most disappointed in the failure to protect the lane. We gave too may easy baskets in the post. Could be partially because of the refs. Hopefully, the team grew up a little tonight.

Interesting that Nwankwo was off the bench before Frederick tonight. Might just be because he's so much bigger. I thought he looked decent while he was in there but he got lost pretty bad a couple times on defensive rotations. Also of note, Johnson was in before Bernstein. Disappointing to see De La Rosa have such a bad game in his first chance against real size this year.

I just watched Loyola beat #5 Florida in Gainesville. It can be done, as Ball St also proved last night.
