Friday night in the MAC and this one is pretty good, a couple of legit contenders squaring off.
Akron is leading the conference but even though they are on top they probably need to win it to get into the NCAAs.
Kent State is a proud program that is always in the thick of it in the MAC. This is a nice late season tilt.
The Golden Flashes are always solid but they have not represented the MAC in the NCAA Tournament since 2008. They just always seem to get to 20 wins which they should again this year. Maybe tonight.
If so they will have really helped their cause and built momentum heading into the MAC Tourney. Akron may be the favourite there but a lot of these teams are pretty close.
The Flashes rely heavily on post Jimmy Hall, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder. He has scored double figures in every game but one this season. He went for 17 and 8 when they beat Akron earlier in the year.
The key in that one was that he was not alone. Khaliq Spicer and Kellon Thomas each scored 22.
They also did a number on the Zips best player that day. Noah Robotham only made one shot from the field.
Akron has won 20 or more games for the eleventh year in a row and has already clinched the MAC regular season title.
Unfortunately that will be somewhat hollow if they can’t win a few games in row next week in the MAC Tourney. Beating Kent State, one of the teams they lost to during the regular season would be a good tuneup.
In that loss top scorer, center Isaiah Johnson, was big, literally, with 24 points and 9 rebounds. The points tied a season high.
If the Zips are going to close with a win they are going to need a lot more than just him. Reggie McAdams and Robotham shot 2 for 17
Akron is an unlikely at large team but that window closes even more if they lose their final game at home. This is pretty much a must win.
