Kent State vs. Northeastern
The Golden Flashes welcome red hot Northeastern to the MAC Center for a 7:00PM tip off on Monday night. After a slow start that included losses to Ohio State, Stanford, Furman and Utah State the Huskies have rattled off wins over Harvard, Cornell, Bucknell and Vermont.

Leading the way for Northeastern is Vasa Pusica. The 6'5 Serbian averages 14 points on 55% shooting. Right behind Pusica is 6'1 guard Donnell Gresham. He is averaging about 11 points per game and is shooting nearly 50% from distance.

This should be a good test for Kent State. I am not sure how Harvard, Cornell, Bucknell and Vermont are doing this season, but I would take wins over any of the above any year.

Go Flashes!

Bucknell is no pushover. They gave Maryland all they could handle a few weeks ago.

The next 3 games are against quality teams. We will get a good indication of how the time off has helped or hurt this team.

I think we win a close one.

GO FLASHES!!!

RE: Kent State vs. Northeastern
A lot of bad signs tonight. Pippen and Johnson not dressed. Always concerning the first game after finals. Duling hurts his back and doesn't come back in the second half. We play pretty poorly. It appears we're trying to play mostly 4 guard lineups but we only have one guard over 6'3". This of course is close to the equivalent of starting back at square one. The perimeter defense may have even gotten worse with 4 guard lineups. At one point near the end we had a 5 guard lineup and still gave up an open 3. We've played a very weak non conference schedule but it looks like we'll finish it under .500.

Other than the above, everything looks great...

I don't think schedule is that bad, Xav, Wright St, Northeastern, Albany, Ore St. Loyola Chi, Valpo all solid programs. We have our share of cupcakes, Have you looked at some of the OOC schedules for the other MAC teams? Nobody can claim a Charley Coles Miami schedule.

but cant blame this one the schedule. We have way to many unforced TO's and the 4 guard lineup limits the D rotations and rebounding.

What is the word on Pippen and Johnson not dressing?. I thought I heard on post game that Pippen is injured.

On kenpom's strength of schedule ranking we're 314 in the country. The only teams with easier schedules in the MAC are CMU and Akron. Yet we're the only team in the MAC that is below .500 right now.

I liked our schedule with a mix of teams at different levels - I don't think the strength of schedule is that bad - but the only teams we've beaten so far are really bad and we lost to one bad team (SeLa)

So it says in the paper that Pippen sustained an injury in practice. How badly? No word on Johnson.
