Kent State @ Central Michigan
The Flashes take the pleasant trip to Central Michigan for an afternoon affair with the Chips. CMU is 13-7 overall and 2-5 in the conference and their home record is 8-2. Kent State won the first meeting 85-69 back in January. De La Rosa and Walker combined for 50 in that game.

The Chips are 8 deep and the leading scorer is Shawn Roundtree. The 6'0 junior guard averages just under 14 points per game. Right behind him is 6'6 senior Cecil Williams who along with David DiLeo leads the team in rebounding.

Birdie opportunity for the good guys. This would be a nice road win and keep the Chips looking less and less like a top 4 finisher.

Go Flashes!

To be a factor in the conference, we have to win on the road eventually. Otherwise, we are just a home team. I will be very disappointed if we lose this opportunity to pick up the roadie. I think that we probably have to hold them to the low sixties. Good road teams play good defense.

It amazes me the amount of contact they allow when guarding De La Rosa vs. the amount they allow him when he's playing defense. Just because he's bigger the guys guarding him doesn't mean he should he held to a different standard from the refs.

Ask LeBron what he thinks about that. ]

Probably too early for scoreboard watching but a win here would put us alone in 3rd place in the MAC. Can't really start thinking about the standings though unless we figure out how to win on the road.

Wow, Akron had Ivey go for 48 in a double OT loss today. They're starting to look like a capable MAC team.

Nice win. It looks like Zabo can be counted on as a scorer which will help. When Walkers off we now have another outside option. Should help quite a bit.

This is the way it is supposed to go for Kent State. The guys had to reach deep in order to win this one. The biggest play of the game could have been the technical foul picked up by Sendy. In fact, I think he wanted it. We were 14 around that time and played better thereafter. Also, the officiating got better. Again, Walker drove me crazy and then made me want to canonize him. Great second half, particularly on defense.

Zabo has really helped turn this team around. A second outside option has really helped.
