RE: Women’s Basketball 2018-19
The women have released their 2018-19 schedule. It looks a little bit easier and less extreme than last season, when the Flashes played four teams in the top 50 RPI and four with RPIs over 250 (out of 349 teams).

They have five home games, plus a Nov. 4 exhibition against Division II Slippery Rock, and six away games.

Non-conference starts with a tough road trip to North Carolina, where the Flashes will play the Tarheels (15-16 last season) on Friday, Nov. 9, and North Carolina State (26-9 and NCAA Tournament Sweet 16) two days later.

Toughest other games are home against Duquesne (25-8 last season with all five starters returning) and at Wright State (23-11).

Home opener is the weekend of Nov. 17-18 in the "Kent State Classic," when they will play Northern Kentucky (9-22) and Oakland (15-16) of the Horizon League. Akron will play the same two teams at the MACC on opposite nights. Last season KSU had a similar tournament at the JAR (the "Akron Classic").

Kent also plays Youngstown State (16-16) and Division II Clarion (7-21) at home.

Away games are at Robert Morris (25-8 but a team KSU beat 46-31 last season), St. Bonaventure (8-22) and the New Jersey Institute of Technology (4-26).

In the MAC, the Flashes will play Western Division teams Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan twice. They'll host defending champion Central Michigan and Northern Illinois and play at Ball State and Toledo. And they'll of course play home and away games against all East Division teams.

Kent State has two returning starters (guards Alexa Golden and Ali Poole) from last year's 13-19 team, along with second-leading scorer Megan Carter, who came off the bench in most games. Biggest loss was all-MAC forward Jordan Korinek, the sixth-leading scorer in Kent State history.

The Flashes have one of their best incoming freshman classes, including point guard Asiah Dingle, last year's high school player of the year in Massachusetts, and guard Hannah Young, a four-time all-stater from Virginia. They also added forward Sydney Brinlee, a second-team junior college All-American from Oklahoma.

Two posts on the schedule are on the blog at http://wbbflashes.com.
