Kent State @ Houston
Big ballgame for Kent State on Saturday against a top 5 opponent. Excited to see this team compete against one of the nation’s best teams.


I want to see defense and rebounding. Take care of those things, knock down some FT’s and 3 point goals and let the chips fall where they may.

Go Flashes!

RE: Kent State @ Houston
I think the thing that will determine if we stay competitive or get run out of the gym is how do they officiate our aggressive defense? Do they let Carry and Jacobs play the way they normally play? Or do they act like 'who the hell do these guys think they are playing against a top 5 team this way?' and call ticky tack fouls? Even if they are able to stay on the court if they get a couple 'take it easy' calls and have to change the way they defend we loose what makes us special. We'll have games where we overcome that in the MAC but we won't be able to against Houston.

Agree, anti-zip.

Houston is going to put a clinic on defense and show Kent state how it's done.

It's entirely possible Houston, being ranked #2, plays better defense than Kent State, but I assure you that Kent State doesn't need anybody to show them "how it's done".

I assure you Houston is going to show the flashes how defense is played on every level including their 3rd string unit. Houston will exploit Kent State and wear them down.

So, a P5 program ranked #2 and playing at home is going to "exploit Kent State and wear them down". What a bold prediction! Way to go out on a limb!! Thank you for reminding me that no mid-major teams or players know how to play defense. No wonder no mid-major players ever play in the NBA and no mid-major team has ever beaten a P5 type team. Why, it's because they don't know how to play defense!

It cracks me up that you are so insecure that you feel the need to respond multiple times to a post that is clearly a joke. Let's say it together "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and, golly, people like me."

Insecure? I have responded to each post that was made. Not consecutive responses out of insecurity.

Why would I be insecure about Houston basketball against Kent State? This is going to be light work for Houston. Maybe you're the insecure one.

Hard to believe that anyone wouldn't know it's a joke. In the greater scheme of things, this game is just both teams prepping for conference play. In January, nobody will even remember it.

Obviously, the prediction was a joke. Are we not allowed to have basketball conversation? I grew up in Northeast Ohio and have seen the Flashes several times.

Yes, for Kent State it's setting up for conference play. For Houston,.they're trying to be the #1 ranked school in the nation.

Maybe you want to talk about why you are insecure? Have you been rejected by Houston in the past and feel the need to talk them up so hopefully they will love you?

Nothing I've posted has inferred anything about anyone's character.

Now your posts are undermining me personally.

Do you want to have a basketball conversation about your flashes or did you want to play mind games with your simple psychology?

I generally try to avoid talking to people as insecure as you because insecure people are very biased and hence the conversations are really 'fact'-based.

Agree, Bopol. The only thing that miffed me was the statement that Kent State would be taught how to play defense, which was an unfair shot. If he would have said that Houston is a better team and will win fairly easier, I wouldn't have cared, as that is a logical conclusion when the number #2 ranked team in the nation is playing an unranked mid-major at home.
