Kent State notes

The Golden Flashes are currently one game back of Toledo for the top spot in the MAC. They could capture the regular season conference title with a pair of wins and at least one Toledo loss over the final two games.

Kent State is 13-0 at home this season and is one of three teams in the MAC with a better home record than Ohio.

The Bobcats lost to the Flashes by five points in the first matchup between the two this season, but they face a tall task Tuesday to hand the Flashes their first loss at the M.A.C. Center. The Bobcats haven’t won there since 2014.

Player to watch

Sincere Carry - Carry, along with Miami’s Mekhi Lairy, is one of two players in the top ten in the MAC in both points and assists per game. He is also fourth in assist-to-turnover ratio and has an outside shot at being named the MAC Player of the Year for the second year in a row.
