I wasn’t there but I do know Toledo fans of the women’s team really take things seriously. It’s almost like the whole team is their grand daughters (in many cases great grand daughters). They probably were just upset that we beat them again on their home floor. Also, let’s face it our team is very young and sometimes freshmen don’t quite get it and do stupid things.

Take away the first quarter, and the women played a hell of a game at 14-1 Ohio Wednesday.


They trailed 25-12 and a second-half rally fell short, 83-81. It was the closest game OU had played all season other than its 88-70 loss to Central Michigan.

Central lost its from league game Wednesday, 70-67 to Miami at home. CMU, Ohio, Buffalo and Kent State are all tied for the league lead at 3-1. Overall Kent is 10-5, still far better than I expected at the beginning of the season.

The Flashes play Central at noon Saturday at the MACC. It's the first game of a double header with the men, who play Northern Illinois at about 2:30. The time of both games has changed to try to avoid a snow storm forecast for Saturday.

Senior guard Alexa Golden had a career-high 22 points and played perhaps the best game of her career. She also had seven rebounds, four steals, three assists and two blocked shots. Megan Carter had 20. Merissa Barber-Smith had nine rebounds in 14 minutes.

Halftime score was 47-31, but Kent chipped away throughout the second half. The Flashes outscored OU 19-11 in the third quarter and got within 63-61 with six minutes to play. OU scored the next seven points, then Kent rallied back and the teams were within six points for the rest of the game. Golden hit a three-point basket at the buzzer to make the final score closer than it really was. But if you don't count that basket, it was still Ohio's second-closest win of the season.

Coach Todd Starkey was happy with the comeback but very grumpy about the start. "We weren't ready," he said.

There were 55 fouls in the game. Two Ohio players fouled out, and three more ended with four fouls. Four Kent players had four fouls. The calls, Starkey said, were "confusing."
