Kent State @ Northern Illinois
The Flashes are in Dekalb tonight to open Mid American Conference play against the Huskies. Northern Illinois is 7-6 on the season and 5-1 at home. While they don't have any wins that jump off the page, they have defeated a handful of mid-majors and played decent games against Iowa, Iowa State and Marquette.

Leading the way for Northern Illinois is 6'0 guard Eugene German. The sophomore from 21st Century Charter School is averaging 19.4 points per night. Northern is also getting nice production from 6'4 junior Dante Thorpe who averages 12 points and is shooting just under 60% from the field.

The Huskies are guard oriented and although they have some big bodies on the roster, the scorers all seem to be 6'7 and under. Lets hope the Flashes are healthy and ready to play. Traditionally, this is the time of year when the lineup/rotation gets shaken up. Of course, if guys are not available who knows if thats even a possibility.

Its been said here before. Can't afford too many night where Jaylin Walker is 3-12 and De La Rosa picks up foul #3 before half. Looking forward to the conference season.

Go Flashes!

1-11 start from three... sad to say that's what we should've expected.

Can't be Rob can't control these chuckers better than this? Hitting the boards hard but absolute brick tossers almost to a man...

So frustrating that Duling & Peterson continue to be a liability. What will it take for them to brake though the funk they are in?

I thought Duling looked ok in the first half. Active on the boards on both ends. Wish he wouldn't have missed that pair of free throws and handled that fast break better. I also felt Walker shouldn't have given him the ball in the fast break as quickly as he did though.

I didn't think this was possible... but I think Walker's shot selection has gotten worse this year.

Really hard to watch this. We just don't have a lot of talent. Allowing way too many offensive rebounds and Walker continuing to be "jack it up Jaylin"...
