The MAC Tournament has hit Quicken Loans Arena.
The Kent State Golden Flashes and the Buffalo Bulls clash in the quarterfinals Thursday night.
Kent State Golden Flashes
The 6th seeded Golden Flashes have been an interesting team to figure out.
They’ve looked horrible at times, losing home games to Buffalo and Bowling Green this year as their offense just couldn’t get anything generated and they fell behind early.
Then there is the other Kent State team. The one that rattled off 5 straight wins, ended Akron’s 30 game home winning streak, and took down Buffalo in the process on the road.
Kent State comes into this one after pulling off quite the comeback in the opening round. Kent went down by as many as 17 and trailed at halftime by 13 to Central Michigan.
It took a huge comeback thanks to Jimmy Hall, Jaylin Walker, and Jalen Avery to knock off the Chips in overtime.
Kent State will need everything out of Jimmy Hall and Jaylin Walker, as the duo has been the go to guys on this offense and the spark plugs to their success.
The Bulls boast one of the best offenses in the MAC.
Buffalo enters play winners of 2 straight games and clinched a first round bye with their win over Bowling Green in the season finale.
Buffalo will play through Blake Hamilton here in this one.
Hamilton leads the team with 17.5 points per game and dishes out a team high 4.5 assists per game. He’s a big part of why this offense goes and will certainly get his looks near the rim.
Expect the Bulls to continue the strategy they did against Kent twice this season when it comes to doubling down on Jimmy Hall when he gets the ball in the post.
