The champions of the MAC clash with the UCLA Bruins on Friday night in what is the final game on the Round of 64 slate.
Kent State Golden Flashes
What Kent State did to close the season out was quite remarkable.
After struggling for a majority of the season, they rattled off 5 straight wins in the regular season which included ending Akron’s 30 game home winning streak, taking down Ohio, and Buffalo on the road.
In MAC tourney play they trailed 26-9 in the first half of the opening round game and completed a huge comeback win as they dropped 116 points in overtime against Central Michigan.
Following that, Kent State ran through the MAC knocking off the top 3 seeds en route to a MAC Championship win over Akron.
This isn’t a good matchup for Kent, no secret about it. However, they have the making of a team that can compete as they’ll need big man Jimmy Hall and G Jaylin Walker to both contribute in a big way.
The Bruins have the making of the a potential National Championship team.
UCLA boasts the best offense in the nation, as they are averaging 90.4 points per game this season.
This team likes to really run and gun and has one of the deepest teams in all of the NCAA.
Watch for the health statuses of Lonzo Ball and T.J. Leaf. Both are such big parts of this team, however they are banged up. They’ll likely play, but if they’re not at 100%, things could get dicey for this Bruins team on both sides of the ball.
