Kent State vs. Central Michigan
The Golden Flashes welcome Central Michigan to the MAC Center tonight. The Chips have won 10 of their last 11 and are coming off a 25 point thrashing of the Ohio (or is it OU?) Bobcats earlier this week.

Four Chippewas scored in double figures in the win over Ohio U. 6'7 sophomore David DiLeo led the way with 22 points and 7 rebounds, 6'5 senior Cecil Williams added 15 points and 9 rebounds, 6'4 senior Josh Kozinksi scored 13 and 6'10 senior Luke Meyers added 12.

Lots of those names sound familiar from last season's MAC tournament game. Remember that crazy game?

These guys are 12-2 for a reason, its gonna take a big effort.

Go Flashes!

RE: Kent State vs. Central Michigan
I got an ad on facebook that tickets are $6. Is this accurate or just click-bait?

I am sure it is legit. Back when Basketball was the marquee program there used to be $5 tickets over winter break. Not a bad deal really. Trouble is that it’s negative 52 out there.

Big halftime lead! Pippen in the starting lineup. De La Rosa with 0 fouls!

Don’t exaggerate. It’s only minus 45.

Certainly the best game I’ve seen them play this year. I know they beat Oregon St. but they are one of the worst major conference teams and were totally uninterested playing in Kent a few days before Christmas. Central was a better challenge in my opinion. Walker and De La Rosa played excellent games.

RE: Kent State vs. Central Michigan
Wasn't able to make it to this one but looking at the box score looks like the the rotation shrunk significantly. For once we weren't fouling so that probably enabled playing fewer guys more minutes. I'm curious did we do a better job of defending without fouling or was it a loose officiated game? Nice to see Walker had a good bounce back game and De La Rosa had a real good game.

Interesting stat a friend of mine told me they put up during the Purdue game today. Isaac Haas from Purdue came into today with the second highest free throw percentage in the country for a player 7'0" and up. First was De La Rosa.

Oregon State looked great last night in their win against Oregon. We beat a good OSU team. They've only lost one game in their last eight. It's a quality win.

So was tonight. But, are we going to shoot the 3 this well every night? According to Tanner Castora, that's what really opened up room for our bigs.

The officiating was tighter rather than looser. We defended pretty well. IMO, CMU missed lots of easy shots inside all night. However, we forced them into taking terrible looking 3's, especially during the second half. Overall, I'm happy with the performance, and compete level.

RE: Kent State vs. Central Michigan
It's a fairly easy equation. If Walker is an efficient scorer like last night, and Adonis goes for 26 and 14, we are going to beat everyone we play in conference. If Walker is going 7/29 from the floor and Adonis has 4 points, 4 boards, and 4 fouls, we are going to struggle to beat anyone we play.
