Kent State Golden Flashes
Kent State has played ok this year, but it has not been anything all that special. So far, they have been an up-and-down team, which is never a good thing.
The Golden Flashes beat the Ball State Cardinals on Tuesday by a score of 66-65. They will be in for a much bigger challenge on Friday when they face off with this good Ohio team.
They have played some decent teams, but it has not been anything all that special. That is why some of their losses have been a bit puzzling.
In the win over the Cardinals, the leading scorer for this crew was Sincere Carry, who had 26 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists. Also, both Justyn Hamilton and Malique Jacobs had 11 points in the game.
When it comes to national attention, Ohio may not be getting a ton of it, but they have had a very good season thus far. They have definitely exceeded a lot of people’s expectations.
The Bobcats currently have a record of 11-2. Sure, they do not have any signature wins on their resume, but they are beating the teams they have to beat and that is all you can ask out of them. When they did go against some firmer competition, it was not as if they got totally blown out of the water, which is always a good sign.
This club bested the Akron Zips on Tuesday by a score of 69-63. They will look to keep up their winning ways when they face the Golden Flashes on Friday.
Mark Sears had a very impressive game for this group in their last win, as he had 24 points, 8 boards, and 5 dimes. Jason Carter also added on 19 points and 3 rebounds to the mix.

Free Kent State Golden Flashes vs. Ohio Bobcats NCAAB Summary:
Ohio will look to keep up their winning ways on Friday, but they cannot just take their opponent for granted, as they have given some teams trouble this year.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Ohio ATS
Ohio is the more complete and talented team here, so there really is no excuse for them to lay an egg in this game.
As the game goes on, I just feel the Bobcats will be too much for the Golden Flashes to handle.
Laying the 7.5 with the Bobcats is not too high for me. I am not saying they are going to totally wipe the floor with them, but I do feel they can do enough to cover this number at home.
I like Ohio laying the points here.
