RE: basketball doubleheader in oxford!
This game is critical for seeding. With Akron losing two in a row by double digits that #2 seed is wide open. Makes that BSU clunker even more frustrating. Can't afford to follow it up with a loss to a .500 team. OU and UB are surging so those last two games are not going to be easy. If we lose this one we'll have an uphill battle for a top 4 seed. If we win this one we pull even with Akron for the 2 seed.

zippers are struggling. Cant play D and only Jackson can score consistently. The gucci wearing coach is struggling.

Career day for Beck. 19 pts 12 rebs, 3 asts. New career high in points and rebounds. He has one 4 assist game in his career, so tied his second best assist day. He's been playing pretty well lately which we need.

RE: basketball doubleheader in oxford!
anti-zip: yes, great game for beck :)

even though i have espn, espn2 & espnu on my u-verse pckg.. and espn+ subscription.. was blocked from watching the game :(
1st game i have missed this season. painful!
ksu women last second loss: painful!

i need to have a cold one & relax 04-drinky

i see gio only played 24 min. anyone know why?
i see jeremiah hernandez played a ton of minutes (34) anyone know why?
only 3 min for gabe o'neil. hmmm

looking into my crystal ball, this is how is see the final mac standings (unless we beat UB at UB final game of the year.)

1. toledo
2. buffalo (12-5)
3. akron (13-6)
4. ksu (13-6)
5. BG
6. ohio
7. ball state
8. miami

because buffalo will likely be the 2 seed, i don't want to be the 3 seed LOL - would rather take my chances with UT in the semis (if we reach the semis.)

anyone going to CLE for the tournament? pandemic means no plane travel for me :(

Gio --- Hernandez --- O'Neil????

I'm guessing there are some defensive implications - positive and negative - for all three players. This has become more and more pronounced as the season wears on w/o Nuga. Kent was averaging over 80 ppg w/Nuga and don't think they have scored 80 in a game since. Senderoff said team would have to make it up w/defense.

Frankly would love to see more of O'Neil myself, but when starting baseline basically posts a double-double across the board -- what can you say. W/O Nuga this team has marginal backcourt scoring, even with Gio's strong 3-point shooting.

Unless Jacobs dials it up to double figures consistently, the only hope is better and better defense. I kind of thought JJordan would come around but that's not going to happen, and neither is Hernandez, offensively. That leaves the defense stepping up and Kent's baseline producing at every spot.

Also, guessing you're right about the final standings/seedings, but Ohio will not be an easy one, and at Buffalo speaks for itself. Other than Toledo, first-round MAC Tournament losers will have little to hang their heads about. It's that close 2-8 in my mind.

Having only 8 teams in the tournament works out great, because the drop-off after the 8th place team is significant. While Toledo has been the most consistently solid team this year, the difference between them and #8 isn't all THAT much. Didn't Ball State even beat them this year?

I note this from the game story: "The Flashes return for their last home game of the regular season on Tuesday night as Kent State will face Ohio. Tuesday's game will honor Kent State's three seniors. Tip time is scheduled for 7 p.m." I hope that isn't official and the writer just assumed three. Because that would mean only one of the four seniors is returning for their extra year. I always have assumed Pippen is leaving. He even said so months ago. But I'm hoping the rest return.

Gio picked up 2 fouls early and went to the bench. Then on the first possession after he came back he doubled down on a post player, knocked it away, and got called for his third. Call looked 50/50 but you have to be more careful than that with 2 fouls. So he ended up sitting most of the first half. Also the reason for Hernandez's bump in minutes.

As for O'Neal, I also would like to see more run for him. He's a crazy efficient scorer. However, I think Nuga's injury may have hurt him as much as anyone. He's a true back to he basket post whose offense all comes around the basket. Without Nuga we don't have the shooters to force defenses to give him space. The only guy's with respectable percentages right now are Gio (48%) and Beck (52%) and Beck's volume is still low enough that defenses usually leave him wide open. Pippen, Gio, Jordan, and Beck are the only guys on the team that have made more than 10 threes and Jordan's (21.6%) or Pippen's (30.8%) aren't exactly forcing defenses to space out. Throw in the fact that our other rotation players (Jacobs, Hamilton, and Hernandez) are all players opponents want to entice to shoot the three (28.6, 8.3, and 15.6 respectively), it's pretty hard to come up with a lineup where the defense is respecting our ability to shoot it from the outside. Which kind of makes O'Neal obsolete.

I think the best chance would be to play him with Beck, Gio, Pippen, and Jacobs. Have Jacobs initiating the offense with the others around the perimeter. Still you'd need to start seeing defenses respect Beck before that works though. He's up over 1 three attempt per game now and still hitting them at a great clip. Might be time to try to get him 3-4 attempts per game to force them to respect him.

Gio picked up second foul with about 11:00 left in the first half, sat for a while, came back in for a couple of minutes and got his 3rd with over 7 minutes left in the half. So he really played minimally in the first half.

Meanwhile, Jacobs picked up his second with about 13 min. left in the first half, then in the second half, got his third about 3 min. in and his 4th at the 9 minute mark.

That should explain why Hernandez got so much run, and I think it’s a good thing he gets as much time as possible this year. He can do a lot of things— he just needs more experience.

Hey all -

I know it's been a bummer season with Covid cancellations, the Nuga injury, losing to Acorn twice, etc -

- but don't look now, but Kent State is having its best season since the Jim Christian era. The .714 wining percentage is the 7th best for Kent State over the last 100 years. This is Senderhoff's best year as a head coach. Too bad we couldn't have a full season of games

Would have to agree .... starting with a mish-mash roster that had no off-season conditioning/workouts/open gyms to form any initial team chemistry.

Losing No. 2 scorer and most productive overall player at mid-season.

Having No. 2 and No. 3 scorer injured/sidelined during home rivalry game.

Averaging almost 10 ppg less overall since Nuga was injured, refocusing on defense, yet still winning.

Yes, definitely. In a normal year, objectively speaking, he should be getting some COY nods at least. But we know that's not going to happen.
